MIND IS A PRISON
Alec Benjamin


I don't live in California
I'll inform you, that's not where I reside
I'm just a tenant paying rent inside this body
And I got two windows
And those windows, well, I call them my eyes
I'm just going where the wind blows
I don't get to decide

Sometimes I think to much
Yeah, I get so caught up
I'm always stuck in my head
I wish I could escape
I tried to yesterday
Took all the sheets of my bed

Then I tied up my linen
With five strips of ribbon I found
Scaled the side of the building
I ran to the hills 'til they found me
And they put me back in my cell
All by myself
Alone with my thoughts again
I guess my mind is a prison
And I'm never gonna get out

So they tranquilized me, analyzed me
Threw me back in my cage
Then they tied me to an IV
Told me I was insane
I'm a prisoner, a visitor
Inside of my brain
And no matter what I do
They try to keep me in chains

Sometimes I think to much
Yeah, I get so caught up
I'm always stuck in my head
I wish I could escape
I tried to yesterday
Took all the sheets of my bed

Then I tied up my linen
With five strips of ribbon I found
Scaled the side of the building
I ran to the hills 'til they found me
And they put me back in my cell
All by myself
Alone with my thoughts again
I guess my mind is a prison
And I'm never gonna get out

Said even if it's true
No matter what I do
I'm never gonna escape
I won't give up on hope
Secure another rope
And try for another day

Said even if it's true
No matter what I do
I'm never gonna escape
I won't give up on hope
Secure another rope
And try for another day

Then I tied up my linen
With five strips of ribbon I found
Scaled the side of the building
I ran to the hills 'til they found me
And they put me back in my cell
All by myself
Alone with my thoughts again
I guess my mind is a prison
And I'm never gonna get out
