Cruel Mind

2011

"Birds flying over miles

Birds speaking in rhyme

They're talking from towers

They're talking from wire

They lead me line to line

Always guided to a sign

Tape rolling in the vent

Repeating sounds hell sent

Trains, and planes, and cars

Gunshots in the dark

There's a knock at the door

Heaven knows what they've come for

Cruel mind

Cruel mind

Christened on the bed

Reborn in my head

Let me be

Let me be

Let me be

Thoughts run away in time

Thoughts run away in mind

They taunt me with their lies

They con me every time

I'm so tired

What's become of my mind?

Cruel mind

Cruel mind

Christened on the bed

Reborn in my head

Let me be

Let me be

Let me be

Birds flying over miles

Birds speaking in rhyme

From in between my ears

They're making it clear..."
