(Verse 1)
My momma said "son, take some time to smell the roses"
My dad said "work until your body decomposes"
If I could find an inbetween
My grass could be just a little green
They both said "wait it out till you're a little older"

(Chorus 1)
But I don't got all the time
Needed to pay for the crime
Don't even know what I did
Is this life even mine?

Cause I'd of cut you a deal
If I had known that
Stranger things can happen to the innocent
Awohoh

I make believe I'm alright
Though they can see through my light
But they don't mix with a man
Who don't know wrong from right

Just cause way deep in my mind
My minds way deep in their grime
An endless bind

(Verse 2)
Mean men in my head always try to make my choices
They come to me in many different manic voices
So I lie and cheat and steal
Whatever evil that they incite
Do what I can just so they let me sleep at night

(Chorus 2)
But I don't got all the time
Needed to pay for the crime
Don't even know what I did
Is this life even mine?

Cause I'd of cut you a deal
If I had known that
Stranger things can happen to the innocent
Awohoh

(Pre-bridge)
Maybe it's just a passing phase
The weight of the world got me all in a daze

It took 15 years to see all but gray
And milliseconds just to take it away
Lookin back, all of my lies...

(Bridge)
Were made of you (x2)

My heads a weight
Now I can't stand up straight
And yet I hesitate

To give up now
There's just no way no how
Cause what you reap you sow

My remedy
Youve tried to set me free
You gave your life to me

But through and through
It just comes back to you
You don't know what to do

(Chorus 3)

There will come a time
When all your feelings flee
I'll be by your side
If you'd just let me be
I can see a day
Your eyes light up again
And I'll wait for it

(X2)
