Don't look too long in my face
It could be a big mistake
I'm hanging on a thread so fine
I need a little space
I shouldn't say, but I know I must
I've had enough of pain
I'm pissed off standing in the rain

It makes me feel like
A mad dog
I got nothing to lose
Mad dog
You got nothing I can use
Mad dog
Howling at the moon
A mad dog

I need no friends
I'm on the edge
Of a broken dream
Laughing at the pain
But it makes me want to scream
I should've known
She'd be no good
She tore my heart in two
But I don't need to talk to you

You make me feel like
A mad dog
I got nothing to lose
Mad dog
You got nothing I can use
Mad dog
Howling at the moon
A mad dog

She said a hard man is good to find
And then she raised a doubt
All that I could give she took
And then she threw me out
Well I don't care
I don't care anymore
I'm going to lose my grip
I'm going to let it rip

You make me feel like
A mad dog
I got nothing to lose
Mad dog
You got nothing I can use
Mad dog
Howling at the moon
A mad dog
