Everyone is listening
And I'm out of tune again
Everyone has something to say
But I do not listen to them

There are days I feel disjointed
There are days I feel alive
In the days between, I will stage a scene
Where I lie, lie, lie

My mouth is always working
To cover up my mind
If it does its best not to stop to rest
We should all coexist just fine

Now I'm living day to day again
I almost feel at home
I've perfected how to withdraw to myself
So in crowds, I feel alone

We've all got weaker branches
We've all seen their leaves die
The wind will blow, with a crack they'll go
They will break from us in time

My feet are always moving
To cover for my mouth
If they do their best not to stop to rest
I'll be burning up back south
My pen's the better fighter
It keeps me off my feet
It puts the words I sing into my mouth
And it keeps my mind at peace
