about

Brian Hadley composed, played and recorded the instrumental tracks.
Martín H. Samuel wrote the lyric about, 'someone who loves a girl who has him wrapped around her little finger and, tho' he doesn't want to be under her thumb anymore, he can't quit'.
Renard J. Cohen composed, sang and recorded the melody.

The lyric could also be interpreted as political ... about someone who loves his country yet, won't go to war.

lyrics

COG IN THE WHEEL

WON'T BE A PLANET SPINNIN' ROUND YOUR SUN
OR A BULLET FIRED FROM YOUR GUN
CAN'T TAKE THE HEARTACHE HOLDIN' ON FOR YOU
HOPIN' ON THE INSIDE THESE DREAMS WILL COME TRUE

I DON'T WANNA FEEL
I'M JUST ANOTHER COG IN THE WHEEL
NO NOT ME I AIN'T GONNA BE
ANOTHER COG IN THE WHEEL

WON'T BE A NUMBER AT YOUR BECK AN' CALL
OR LIVE WITH MY BACK AGAINST THE WALL
CAN'T BE CONTENT IN A SUPPORTIN' ROLE
WASTIN' MY SOUL AWAY AS TIME TAKES ITS TOLL

I DON'T WANNA FEEL
I'M JUST ANOTHER COG IN THE WHEEL
NO NOT ME I AIN'T GONNA BE ANOTHER COG
JUST ANOTHER COG IN THE WHEEL

GIVE ME LOVE OR LIBERTY
HOLD ME CLOSE OR LET ME GO
TELL ME YES OR TELL ME NO

WON'T BE A PAWN PLAYED BY YOUR KING
OR THE MEANS TO AN END OF ANYTHING
CAN'T STAND FOREVER KNOCKIN' ON YOUR DOOR
WAITIN' ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKIN' IN NO MORE

I DON'T WANNA FEEL
I'M JUST ANOTHER COG IN THE WHEEL
NO NOT ME I DON'T WANNA FEEL
I'M JUST ANOTHER COG IN THE WHEEL

NO NOT ME
NOT JUST ANOTHER COG IN THE WHEEL
I DON'T WANNA FEEL I'M JUST A COG IN THE WHEEL

DON'T WANNA FEEL
I'M JUST ANOTHER COG IN THE WHEEL
NOT ANOTHER COG
NOT ANOTHER COG IN THE WHEEL
