Never let it be said that I'm not coming back I see another side of you You are gaining steam and size Taking over 'cuz you are wise I've got so much more to do It drags me And leaves me here to find a broken bunch of rules and a guide I'm on the run from my mind I'm on the run I'm on the run I'm on the run from my mind It leaves me broken down by the side of the road And I have never known to fix anything I'm on the run from my mind I'm on the run I'm on the run I'm on the run from my mind I've broken down before Lying underneath the floor Sinking on the edge somehow All this has left me flat I know I am coming back to where I am in control It drags me And leaves me here to find a broken bunch of rules and guide Still I don't know where I am I don't know where I am It's alright I'm not afraid to claim I'm not afraid to die I'm on the run from my mind

When I first met you I was broken down I didn't think you would stop and pick me up and take me home Now I notice when you're not around I can't find my way back from the places I end up But that's alright There's a fired up expression in your eyes A sky destructive inner space delight I look things over and I find I plan to see you on the other side We shouldn't try to cross it now You can't afford the toll it's high And then I wonder why you're still around I know you saw the button raised but wisely passed it by And that's alright There's a fired up expression in your eyes A sky destructive inner space delight I look things over and I find The story's over in my mind I'm leaving shining things behind I can't afford your precious time But that's alright There's a fired up expression in your eyes A sky destructive inner space delight I look things over and I find The story's over in my mind I'm leaving shining things behind I can't afford your precious time You can have some of mine

You can talk if you want to And I can sleep if I want to I can sit and look over the garden reacting to nothing You can yell if you want to I can hide my ears in the corner I can sneeze if I have to since the plants are getting off I can run in place Circle around the Lido deck I like to watch shuffleboard on the screen You can talk if you want to I will listen if I care to I'm boiling water to hear the teapot scream You can walk to the corner of the room where I am standing I dream of flying Never landing You can stand there watching the past Since I don't know what to do I can hunt in place lost in science fiction You can talk if you want to And I can sleep if I want to I can sit and look over the garden Reacting to nothing In this image flying off the wall like Michael Jackson It's out of the kitchen and into the cupboard Port and starboard into the tuna net I have patched the water You can use it if you want to You can talk if you want to And I can sleep if I want to I can sit and look over the garden Reacting to nothing

I've thought about it twice You and I would not here if it was not so nice And the witches without brooms Sweeping me beneath the floor As if they knew they could Do you know what it was? I am flying off the handle coming unglued And I've seen that before It surprises me but quickly ends I am glad to find And it's stuck in my brain It seems that we are not always in the same game I've thought about it twice You and I would not here if it wasn't so nice I've thought about it twice I've thought about it twice I've thought about it twice

Lose track of time It's not hard to find It's floating beyond the surface of our world Lose track of time Not going anywhere I don't want it You can take it from me Invisible particles Riding all around the vacuum packed ceiling wax Lose track of time We don't need it anymore today Lose track of time Are you glad it's fading away?

Think of things Think of worlds that are falling apart Take a ride to the side I wonder where to start This won't happen again I say this to myself my only friend You and I ride it out This shit is falling apart Look around feeling down Canyon in my sight This won't happen again Send this to ourselves our only friends I can't see well in this sea I am blinded by something I can't hear but I know is real This should not happen on my watch My dreams are waking up to see we're out of touch Think of worlds flowing down no time to pick them up Sinking down falling down walking with my crutch I need that to keep me upright I tell that to you my secret friend I can't see well in this sea I am blinded by something I can't hear but I know is real This should not happen on my watch My dreams are waking up to see we're out of touch Think of things Think of worlds that are falling apart Take a ride to the side I wonder where to start

I've been wrong once or twice before I've been wrong more times than I can count Drawing circles in the wrong direction I can see them on the ground And you can see What you want from me But I can't be exactly who you want me to be We'll end up where we want to be you and me I never thought I could see into the future and still I try And you can see What you want from me But I can't be exactly who you want me to be All of this has got me thinking We're gonna do what we have to do All the time I get to realizing why I'm here with you And you can see What you want from me But I can't be exactly who you want me to be And you can see What you want from me

Path 03:41
Blasting along on a rocket ship to nowhere Do you feel that's where you belong? I've been there before And I'll be there again You can tell me what you want me to be ... I am No one can change who they want you to be ... you already are Moving past the place we were supposed to get off Riding the highway on the right path to your life You can tell me what you want me to be ... I am No one can change who they want you to be ... you already are Didn't see the sign Not clearly marked It never is Could not find the path Not sure if it exists And then you find you're already on it You have found the path And the world expands the way you wanted it to eventually Blasting along on a rocket ship to somewhere That will always be your path You can tell me what you want me to be ... I am No one can change who they want you to be ... you already are

Compromise 01:59
Out of the dog house and into the fire I bet you're glad it's not getting higher I have seen the writing Invisible in the hall I wonder if you're on the same plane as me at all But then you and I agree We see life the same how we want it to be Wonder why it's so hard to see Find the extreme or somewhere in between Where you and I agree We can't live our lives without some secrecy Imaginary vacuum packed reality Triangle pressure angles coming out of nowhere Compromise hell we can super size But then you and I agree We see life the same how we want it to be Wonder why it's so hard to see Find the extreme or somewhere in between Where you and I agree

I'm doing things I can't explain I'm not so mean What's wrong with my brain? It must the troll in me It must be controlling me Coming to the surface more and more each day I keep talking to you And you're walking away It's got something to do with the rotten things I say I'm not trying to hurt you even though it seems I am I come out from under the bridge and look at all I've done It must the troll in me It must be controlling me Coming to the surface more and more each day I'm still talking to you And you're walking away It's got something to do with the rotten things I say It must be the troll in me

I want the lining of my jacket To match the fireworks in my head Identify, conquer, and cower Under the air of covering up Time froze it's cold in there I stood still as if I didn't care I'm parched feeling fine Still my cup is not dry Chaotic time following the crooked line Do what you want Do what you want It's alright with me You're happy with what How can that be? There's so much more that you need No way to be guaranteed You can do what you want Do what you want It's alright with me Do what you want Do what you want with me
19.
Opinion 02:47
Blocking the escalator I want to pass But I don't feel like raising my voice or telling you to move Keeping things the same The way they are today Nothing can hurt you you may say but maybe not out loud Eyes in the back of my head have got me looking around Sometimes the future come and creeps around now face it Nothing looks exactly the same when seen through different eyes How things are perceived blindly maybe opinion You swear does not exist but you never agree Because you are right and everyone is wrong You try to keep people down and wish they'd all move on Everybody's an expert on something No one can win Eyes in the back of my head have got me looking around Sometimes the future come and creeps around now face it Nothing looks exactly the same when seen through different eyes How things are perceived blindly maybe opinion Outward appearance not obvious Then you wonder If and when you will crack Who or what are you blaming your problems on but yourself And they escort you out of the building and say good luck You expressed your opinion all too wrong And they say you're wrong Now you must move Go think on your own time
