It's four o' clock the t.v.'s on my mind is shut off and my own thoughts are gone I change the channel I change my mind I change my life I want to leave it all behind cause I don't have a mind of my own I am influenced by everything I see and I can't help it now everything in my life just thinks for me can't help this habit I'm in love with my disease worshiping my idle time a life I cannot seize trapped by depression and I sleep all day but zanax, valium, attavan makes it all ok it's so much more than a cry for attention no loving hands can soothe this ache so much more than a war with the world it's my own degradation it's my own self hate I preach my pessimism right out loud to anyone who'll listen I'm not afraid to be alive I'm afraid to be alone late at night my monsters find me from under the bed or right out of my past all alone with nobody to talk to sanity gets put to the test I close my eyes but I'm still haunted sometimes I get too twisted to sleep as all my world crumbles all around me inspirations become admissions of defeat cause I don't have a mind of my own everything in my life just thinks for me

    General CommentThis is one their best songs.... Everytime I hear it I feel the way Jason must have felt when he was writing it. Just sitting somewhere early in the morning, alone. Just you, a cigarette and the melancholic clouds in your mind. And then you start writing. Masterful.
