about

An attempt to describe the inner workings of my brain. I still don't understand.

lyrics

In that moment when reality runs away
Imagination, real world fade to grey
Sink deeper into my mind
Close my eyes, look around, see what I can find
There's a guy waiting for me with a tail out his back
Fox ears, big sword, and a patched up sack
Looks me in the eyes as he says to me
"Hey, ready for an adventure?"
Off to chart the worlds unknown
Sail the seas so far from home
Ride across the plains on a dragon's back
Fly far away and never look back
As dawn approaches we'll hide away
Disguise ourselves as we go through the day
But as I wake up and get out of my bed
Am I me or someone in my head?

My mind's up in the clouds as I walk around
Too much imagination, need to tone it down
Wishing for a grand, lofty destiny
Or a bad case of mistaken identity
Real madcrasher please raise your hand
Are you the one with fur or the normal man
Or the one in the middle, can't seem to decide
Who he really is, at least on the inside...

Wake up in the morning, try to go to class
My mind keeps drifting off to where it was last night
Sit, try to write things down
But I still can't seem to describe that particular sound
In the wind that I hear
Calling me back home to a place I've never been
But how can I imagine what can't be known
Describe what can't be shown?

My mind's up in the clouds as I walk around
Too much imagination, need to tone it down
Wishing for a grand, lofty destiny
Or a bad case of mistaken identity
Real madcrasher please raise your hand
Are you the shapeshifter or the normal man
Or a bad case of mistaken identity
Real madcrasher please raise your hand
Are you the leet wizard or the normal man
Or a bad case of mistaken identity
Real madcrasher please raise your hand
Are you cocky fool or the broken man
Or the one in the middle, can't seem to decide
Who he really is, at least on the inside...

There needs to be a separation between
The world outside and the worlds inside my head
'Cause a God in my own mind's no good
If he has no authority to do what I said
Not to mention the other people sitting around me
Living their own lives apart from me
If they came in they'd run far away
From all my thoughts that should never, ever see the light of day
Still the thoughts come like a torrent
Like stars from the sky over the world below it
And I have no choice but to write them down
In a flurry of sparks as they hit the ground
So I'll keep on writing and I'll keep on rapping
Even if the world doesn't like what I'm asking
The brain is no place for ideas to stay
'Cause they might be loved someday...
