  • All in my mind
    I walked down Mayflower Road again
    The wailing sound
    Echoes from the park seem so absurd
    The bus takes hours
    I knew it would but I can't shake the sting
    Can't spend my time on everybody else
    If buildings fell at least we'd be in matrimony
    I can't control the words
    Kaleidoscope inside my head

    Has the world gone mad
    Or is it me?
    All these small things they gather 'round me
    Gather 'round me
    Is it all so very bad?
    I can't see
    All these small things they gather 'round me
    Gather 'round me

    Saw the police
    Screaming something trivial like
    "Keep the peace"
    The world moves on and
    You can't shake the sound
    know she's home
    Waiting on somebody holding life
    All in my mind, the anvil and the weight upon my back

    Has the world gone mad
    Or is it me?
    All these small things they gather 'round me
    Gather 'round me
    Is it all so very bad?
    I can't see
    All these small things they gather 'round me
    Gather 'round me
    And I can't see my love

    Has the world gone mad
    Or is it me?
    All these small things they gather 'round me
    Gather 'round me
    Is it all so very bad?
    I can't see
    All these small things they gather 'round me
    Gather 'round me Writer/s: Benjamin John Howard
