Inside My Head (2002)

They didn’t think I could do it this time.

They said I’d fail just like all those other times

I tried, but I’ll show them.

How could they possibly understand?

They’re not inside my head.

Those damn doctors with their fancy degrees

Think they know what’s wrong with me.

They have no idea!

They don’t know what it’s like

To wander through life with your still beating

Heart bleeding in your trembling hands

To teeter on the edge of fantasy and reality

To seek the comforting shadows of a make believe

World because the harsh blinding light of reality

Paralyzes me.

Let’s see how they like that.

They think popping some damn pill is

Going to me make normal.

I keep taking the candy that they give me.

They say I’m getting better,

But I don’t think so.

It’s not some chemical imbalance in my brain.

They just don’t know.

Well I did it right this time,

Just like I said I was.

They may call me a coward for slipping

Out on life,

But I don’t care.
