Alec Benjamin – Lock me up for Life Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
Well, I was walkin’ through some shops at the mall
A gold Versace watch was hangin’ up on the wall
And no, I didn’t have the money to ball
So I thought about takin’ it
I saw this movie playin’ up in my head
I walk outside and jack a Mercedes Benz
Go drivin’ down the 5 and even though it’s pretend
Maybe I’m a maniac

[Pre-Chorus]
If it were illegal to have evil in the mind
And they cut me open
Wonder, would they be surprised?
Or are there other people that are equally inclined
To think about the heinous things I think about

[Chorus]
Is it only me?
Is it unnatural to, to have these thoughts sometimes?
Am I alone, am I some type of criminal?
Oh, if they could read my mind
Would they lock me up for life?
Lock me up for life?
Oh, would they lock me up for life?
Lock me up for life?
Mmmm

[Verse 2]
There’s things I wouldn’t even say to my shrink
‘Cause I’m ashamed of what the doctor would think
Like when I felt alone and hated my life
So I thought about takin’ it
I saw this movie playin’ up in my head
Next to my casket were some family and friends
And even though I know that’s not how it ends
There was no shakin’ it

[Pre-Chorus]
If they forced a needle through a cortex in my brain
Wonder what they’d think, that maybe I had gone insane
Or are there other people that are equally deranged
And think about the heinous things I think about

[Chorus]
Is it only me?
Is it unnatural to, to have these thoughts sometimes?
Am I alone, am I some type of criminal?
Oh, if they could read my mind
Would they lock me up for life?
Lock me up for life?
Oh, would they lock me up for life?
Lock me up for life?
Mmmm

[Bridge]
Tell my mother that I love her
I’m not coming home from jail
I’m so sorry
I’m so sorry
And tell my father not to bother
Waste a dollar on my bill
I’m so sorry, hmm
I’m so sorry

[Chorus]
Is it only me?
Is it unnatural to, to have these thoughts sometimes?
Am I alone, am I some type of criminal?
Oh, if they could read my mind
Would they lock me up for life?
Lock me up for life?
Oh, would they lock me up for life?
Lock me up for life?
