It used to be easy, now I'm doin' my time
Workin' so hard I got a pain in my side
Runnin' up a hill tryin' to catch my breath
Nowhere to go when I need some rest
Where do I hide, take me away
From this lonely state of mind
I've got to say, it's time to play tonight

Oh, I've been thinkin' that I'm not living
But it's only just a state of mind
Time to roll the dice, close my eyes and let it ride
Oh, I've been thinkin' that I'm not living
But it's only just a state of mind
I've been doing my best but there's one regret
That I live in this state of mind

My phone machine's beeping and it's hurting my head
Twenty-eight messages, I said
People come and go like a thief in the night
Taking my heart, stealing my time
Papers and dreams, what does it mean
When I'm in this state of mind
Polite as I seem, I want to scream inside

Oh, I've been thinkin' that I'm not living
But it's only just a state of mind
Time to roll the dice, close my eyes and let it ride
Oh, I've been thinkin' that I'm not living
But it's only just a state of mind
I've been doing my best but there's one regret
That I live in this state of mind

Oh, I've been thinkin' that I'm not living
But it's only just a state of mind
Time to roll the dice, close my eyes and let it ride
Oh, I've been thinkin' that I'm not living
But it's only just a state of mind
I've been doing my best but there's one regret
That I live in this state of mind

Oh, I've been thinkin' that I'm not living
But it's only just a state of mind
I've been doing my best but there's one regret
That I live in this state of mind
