Lyrics

I don't know why, I just feel I'm better off,
Staying in the same room I was born in.
I look outside, and see a whole world better off
Without me in it trying to transform it.

You are out of my mind, you aren't seeing my side
You waste all this time trying to get to me
But you are out of my mind.

Listen, I know this one's a contradiction because of how happy it sounds
But the lyrics are so down
It's ok though, because it represents, wait better yet, it is
Who I feel I am right now.

You are out of my mind, you aren't seeing my side
You waste all this time trying to get to me
But you are out of my mind.

Heard you say, "not today"
Tore the curtains down, windows open now, make a sound
Heard your voice, "there's no choice"
Tore the curtains down, windows open now, make a noise.

Don't you test me though, just because I play the piano
Doesn't mean I am not willing to take you down, I'm sorry.

I'm out of my mind, I'm not seeing things right
I waste all this time trying to run from you
But I'm out of my mind.

Heard you say, "not today"
Tore the curtains down, windows open now, make a sound
Heard your voice, "there's no choice"
Tore the curtains down, windows open now, make a noise.

You are out of my mind, you aren't seeing my side
You waste all this time trying to get to me
But you are out of my mind.

Heard you say, "not today"
Tore the curtains down, windows open now, make a sound
Heard your voice, "there's no choice"
Tore the curtains down, windows open now, make a noise.

Buh buh bah, buh buh bah
Bah bah bah bah bah, bah bah bah bah bah
Buh buh bah, buh buh bah
Bah bah bah bah bah, bah bah bah bah bah
Buh buh bah, not today
Bah bah bah bah bah, bah bah bah bah bah
Buh buh bah, buh buh bah
Bah bah bah bah bah, bah bah bah bah bah

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
