You say you think you can help me
Think of me as someone who bleeds
Well I never told you to love me
That's your sort of greed
I can make my own decisions
I can do what I want to do
And I don't have to share my addiction
With any of you

I'll be just fine out of my mind
I like it this way, I know when to pray
I'm in control till it swallows me whole

I know you'd like to control me
You always need to be right
Because I'm late once or twice
Lose a job or stay out all night
But I can see high above it
The world is a boundary for you
And I know that you'd like to see through it
The way that I do

I'll be just fine out of my mind
I like this it this way, I know when to pray
And I don't need any until I need more
I said I was sorry a hundred times before
And I'm in control till it swallows me whole

Well you say that you have to leave now
You can't stand the things that I do
And you know that I'll need this more
Than I'll ever need you

I'll be just fine out of my mind
I like this it this way I know when to pray
And I don't need any until I need more
And I don't need any until I need more
And I don't need any until I need more
And I'm in control
Till it swallows me whole
Till it swallows me whole
Swallows me whole

    General CommentThis and Paper Wings and Halo are my favorite songs by Lori ever! I think this ones about the ravages of addiction. The person in the song is perfectly content in their own misery, out of their mind, jobless and after awhile alone, when their addiction has swallowed them and everything they have whole... My favorite line is "And you know Ill need this more than Ill ever need you"
