No one knows where I come from
No one wants to understand.
The things I love
my hopes and dreams
and exactly who I am

Out there I am someone
I know people who care
In here I am a number
alone in my despair

All the dreams that I once had,
Now only make me sad,
Only attainable in my Mental Escape
All the things I thought were fun,
So many things I wish I'd done,
Only doable in my Mental Escape

    General Commenthmm definitely feels as if you perceive yourself as a tiny minority where the majority has a popular oppinion of things & yours is the opposite of that. You see things your own way & "dance to the beat of a different drummer" & because of this you are a smaller part & feel unnoticed.

    General CommentI think this is about getting all messed up. Haven't decided whether it's smokin the pot, or heavier stuff like the white horse. GIVE UP THE HABIT!!!
