The Lyrics

This song is a tribute to the "Planet of the Apes" movies.
Is this the real life?
Is this a sci-fi fantasy?
Caught in an "Apes" movie,
No escape from the monkeys
Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see,
I'm just a bad actor, I need a good movie,
Because I'm "Easy Rider" and "The Crow," never high, always low
Anywhere Heston goes doesn't really matter to me, to me

Heston just killed an ape,
Put a gun against his head, stole his laser, he should've been dead
Heston, life had just begun,
But now you've gone and thrown it all away
Heston, ooh, didn't mean to make me cry
I won't be back again this time tomorrow,
So carry on, carry on as if the apes don't really matter

Too late, the film is done
Somebody break my spine, my want my body aching all the time
Farewell, ev'rybody, I've got to go
Gotta leave these films and face the truth
Heston, ooh, I want to die,
I wish I'd never been born at all

I see another gorrila who's actually a man
Dr. Zaius, Dr. Zaius, will you stop being insane, oh?
You should be struck by lightning, it's very, very frightening
only to me
(Roddy McDowall)Roddy McDowall (Roddy McDowall)Roddy McDowall, Roddy
McDowall figaro
Zeroooo I'm just a poor guy, nobody loves me
He's just a poor guy from a Heston movie
He'll spare his career for this mostrosity
"Easy Rider" and "The Crow," will you let me go?
Dr. Zaius No! we will not let you go
(Let him go!) Dr. Zaius we will not let you go
(Let him go!) Dr. Zaius we will not let you go
(Let me go!) we will not let you go
(Let me go) we will not let you go (Let me go!) ah
No no no no no no no
(Oh Dr. Zaius, Dr. Zaius) Dr. Zaius, let me go
Charlton Heston has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me

So you think you can get us to do "Apes" part I-I
So you think you can give Heston an Ocscar before he dies
Oh baby, the "Apes" films are expensive, baby
Just gotta get out, just gotta get the h*ll out of here

The "Apes" films really matter,you can finally see
The "Apes" films really matter,
The "Apes" films really matter to me

Anywhere that Heston goes
