World Inside My Head

  • On the road to safe
    I kinda tripped along the way
    It just seemed like a nasty hassle
    The path was greener on the one less traveled
    That's where I remained
    People so high they think
    I can't hear the whispers
    I can see it falling off their face
    Their trying to shoot down my plane of grace
    It seems like it's already hard enough
    But the paint on me is beginning to dry
    And it's not what I wanted to be
    The weight on me
    Is Hanging on to a weary angel

    [Chorus]
    So tell me what it is about me
    Where did everybody go without me
    So, I like to fantasize
    And watch the sunrise like it's a big surprise
    Life moved and I stopped to taste it
    I drank it up till it left me wasted
    But my rains have bled
    A softer red
    Oh you should see the world inside my head

    You can shackle me away
    And try to wrap around my dreamer
    I feel better when I paint my days
    With purple seas
    And left out grays
    Strange is just a different point of view
    But the paint on me is starting to dry
    And it's not what I wanted to be
    The weight on me
    Is holding onto a weary angel

    [Chorus]

    I feel better when I paint my days
    With purple seas
    And left out grays
    Strange is just a different point of view
    But the pain on me is beginning to dry
    And it's not what I want it to be
    So wait on me
    Wait on me

    [Chorus]
