I've been thinking again
About how I tend to fade out
Like the stars in the sky
When there's too much light down on the ground
I disappear without a trace
In shame, I try to hide my face
Cause when asked to do something great
I blend into the crowd

I've been sinking again
In that dangerous part of my mind
The one where hopelessness, envy
And self deprecation reside
And it pulls me in like I've stepped in sand
And each thought I have is a marching band
Discordant notes, but with a soldier's stance
And so I fight this war

I've been lying again
To myself and my friends for some time
I've been playing this game
Where I take a name I get assigned
And I flail my arms, but speak no words
I hear guesses, saying "I'm not sure"
But when the game is over, and it's not my turn
The charade rages on

I've been smiling again
To strangers I meet on the street
Each one has a story
A scarring that makes them complete
And as they board their bus or ride their train
I wonder if I picked their brains
If I would find out that we're all the same
A people out of love

I've been singing again
To the dismay of a couple of men
They say they've seen it before
And I'm looking for pity again
I know I may not break into new ground
But I'm sure I'm making honest sounds
So don't pigeonhole me with that goddamn noun
Yeah, keep your adjectives away

Now I'm waking up on tile floors
And I rest my back on wooden doors
And I've laid my head down here before
So it's here I'll call my home
