Album: State of Shock (1979)

  • I'm on a mission of mercy. I gotta testify
    You lost your emotions. You're paralyzed

    Amputate your logic, you're hypnotized
    You show no emotion. You're paralyzed

    Don't you know you crucify yourself, oh, no

    You're killin' you and nobody else
    And know you been spending your nights alone
    The lights are on but there's nobody home

    You don't know where you come from. You're not too wise
    You got nowhere to run to. You paralyzed

    Can you feel your body? Can you move your eyes?
    Can you feel your heartbeat? Well, are you paralyzed?
    Paralyzed Writer/s: Theodore Nugent
