  • I wake up everyday it's a daydream
    Everythin' in my life ain't what it seems
    I wake up just to go back to sleep
    I act real shallow but I'm in too deep

    And all I care about is sex and violence
    A heavy bass line is my kind of silence
    Everybody says that I gotta get a grip
    But I let sanity give me the slip

    Some people think I'm bonkers
    But I just think I'm free
    Man, I'm just livin' my life
    There's nothin' crazy about me

    Some people pay for thrills
    But I get mine for free
    Man, I'm just livin' my life
    There's nothin' crazy about me

    Bonkers

    I wake up everyday it's a daydream
    Everythin' in my life ain't what it seems
    I wake up just to go back to sleep
    I act real shallow but I'm in too deep

    And all I care about is sex and violence
    A heavy bass line is my kind of silence
    Everybody says that I got to get a grip
    But I let sanity give me the slip

    Bonkers

    Some people think I'm bonkers
    But I just think I'm free
    Man, I'm just livin' my life
    There's nothin' crazy about me

    Some people pay for thrills
    But I get mine for free
    Man, I'm just livin' my life
    There's nothin' crazy about me

    Mmm, yeah, I'm back in the floor now

    I wake up everyday it's a daydream
    Everythin' in my life ain't what it seems
    I wake up just to go back to sleep
    I act real shallow but I'm in too deep

    And all I care about is sex and violence
    A heavy bass line is my kind of silence
    Everybody says that I got to get a grip
    But I let sanity give me the slip

    Bon, bon, bon, bon, bon, bon, bon, bon

    Some people think I'm bonkers
    But I just think I'm free
    Man, I'm just livin' my life
    There's nothin' crazy about me

    Some people pay for thrills
    But I get mine for free
    Man, I'm just livin' my life
    There's nothin' crazy about me Writer/s: Armand Van Helden, Dylan Mills, James Reeves, Tyler Fagan, Tyler Harris, Tyronne Fagan
