    At the moment of conception
    I could see someone approaching
    Will you be my disco dancer?
    I could use a little coaching
    Will you be my secret lover?
    Mother, Father, Sister, Brother too

    I was born without a conscience
    Full of freedom, full of nonsense
    From the mountains to the beaches
    Eat the apples, steal the peaches
    Will you be this wild child's lady?
    Will you carry me to safety?

    Lock me up & take me home
    I don't wanna be free
    Goin' crazy - on my own
    It's not where I wanna be

    I behave without compassion
    I see things I want to smash them

    When I put our love in danger & treat you like a total stranger
    I don't really want to hurt you
    I would stop it if I could do

    Blame my school & blame my parents
    & the genes that I inherit
    Blame it on my older sister for showing me her dirty pictures
    Blame the TV & the movies
    Blame the lawyers & the juries

    Lock me up & take me home
    I don't wanna be free
    Goin' crazy - on my own
    It's not where I wanna be

    At the moment of conception
    At the moment of conception
