tin can

Don’t leave me alone in my head anymore
I’m down to the bone and dead to the core
But I remember the blue sky, the green field, and the sunshine

Shot up through the starry night on lightwaves or moonbeams
It don’t matter – I’m gonna be alright
You see I got what I wanted
Now I’m strung up, higher than a kite

Don’t leave me alone in my head anymore
I’m down to the bone and dead to the core
But I remember your bright eyes in the moonlight – oh, your sweet sighs

You see I got what I wanted –
doesn’t mean I don’t want the things that you got
I’ll take everything – gonna tuck it all away
‘til I run out of things, I done run out of things to say

Don’t leave me alone in my head anymore
I’m down to the bone and dead to the core
But I remember the good times gonna light up the night just like fireflies

I’m banging on this old tin can
Sometimes the ground beneath my life feels a little like quicksand
But let it fall away – Now the big world down below
I try to keep the peace but I’ll reap the seeds that I sow

Shot up like a 20th century god
Who knows better the view of this grey cloud?
It’s all up in my head
Me and you if you want it to be
You see, the truth gonna set us free
The key, shiny but old, be waiting there when we’re dead
Shot down, now I keep it close to the ground
I’ve found no one in this nowhere town to talk me down
Do you hear what I just said?
It’s all up in my head

Don’t leave me alone in my head anymore
I’m down to the bone and dead to the core
But I remember the blue sky, the green field, and the sunshine
I remember the blue sky, the green field, and the sun
