Someone Told Me

Album: Jaggedland (2009)
  • Well, someone told me, tried to tell me
    It sounded backwards and upside down
    Someone told me something
    That really messed my head around

    And I wondered sadly
    I sadly wondered
    Could we ever be on common ground?

    Read and listen, I watch and listen
    It's like a train wreck and I can't turn away
    So many worlds colliding
    Everywhere, every day

    People looking at the same things
    All the same things
    Them in conflicting ways

    Well, if you see me walking down the avenue
    Call my name and I just stare a hole through you
    Please don't worry about me 'cause I'm really fine
    Sometimes I just get lost inside my mind

    Someone told me, tried to tell me
    He was dressed and painted like a clown
    Someone told me something
    Tried to mess my head around
    Around and round

    But I had a feeling he knew
    That his words were untrue
    We'll never be on common ground

    Well, I know a man you can't own up to the things he's done
    He's got no sense of honor and never did have one
    Where would he be without a wall to hide behind?
    I'm glad I'm not the one living in his mind
