  • All dressed up
    In a white straight jacket
    Shut your mouth
    No you can't have it

    Paper air planes
    Open window
    Here today
    And gone tomorrow

    I like to stare at the sun
    And think about what I've done
    I lie awake in my great escape
    I like crossing the line
    Its for losing my mind
    Are you okay
    'Cause I feel fine
    Maybe its me
    I'm just crazy
    Maybe I like that I'm not alright

    All messed up
    And slightly twisted
    Am I sick or am I gifted
    Paper air planes
    Open window
    Here today
    And gone tomorrow

    I like to stare at the sun
    And think about what I've done
    I lie awake in my great escape
    I like crossing the line
    Its for losing my mind
    Are you okay
    'Cause I feel fine
    Maybe its me
    I'm just crazy
    Maybe I like that I'm not alright

    Wooo
    I don't care if you apologize
    I can't lie
    Wooo
    I can't lie

    I like to stare at the sun
    And think about what I've done
    I lie awake in my great escape
    I like crossing the line
    Its for losing my mind
    Are you okay
    'Cause I feel fine
    Maybe its me
    I'm just crazy
    Maybe I like that I'm not alright
    Maybe I like that I'm not alright Writer/s: BRENT SMITH, DANA CALITRI, KATHY SOMMER, NINA OSSOFF

  • Zero from The Abyss, NjBrent hits some difficult notes in this song. I try to sing it, and I can do it, but it's hard!
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjI thought he said, "I Like crossing the line AND SLOWLY losing my mind." Whatever, great song!
