  • Tranquillized and I'm tired
    I wanna be an outsider
    Being the visualizer
    Always first to get gone
    Staying still is too high risk
    On repeat and unfocused
    Going up where it's cloudless
    Flying close to the sun

    I'm letting go (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    Letting go (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    Of the controls (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    All it is now (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    Some place I don't know (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    I'm letting go

    I navigate my mind
    I am the pilot (yeah)
    Over the hills I climb
    I am the pilot (yeah)
    Out of the turbulence
    Into the quiet
    In the arc of the climb
    I am the pilot, I am the pilot

    Cutting free from his harness
    Getting out of this carcass
    Fire me into the farness
    Deeper now
    Don't get mad at this body
    Doing that is too easy
    Close my eyes and see clearly
    All around

    Tranquillized and I'm tired
    I wanna be an outsider
    Being the visualizer
    Staying still is too high risk
    On repeat and unfocused
    Going up where it's cloudless

    I'm letting go (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    Letting go (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    Of the controls (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    All it is now (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    Some place I don't know (I'm, I'm, I'm letting)
    I'm letting go

    I navigate my mind
    I am the pilot (yeah)
    Over the hills I climb
    I am the pilot (yeah)
    Out of the turbulence
    Into the quiet
    In the arc of the climb
    I am the pilot, I am the pilot
    I am the pilot (yeah)
    (I am the pilot, yeah)
    (I am the pilot, yeah, tonight)
    I am the pilot (yeah, tonight)
    I am the pilot (yeah, tonight)
    I am the pilot (yeah, tonight)
    I am the pilot (yeah, tonight)
    I am the pilot (yeah, tonight)

    (I am the pilot, yeah, tonight)
    (I am the pilot, yeah, tonight)
    (I am the pilot, yeah, tonight, tonight) Writer/s: Cathy Dennis, KT Tunstall, Martin Jonas Ola Terefe
