Mix Scalp Genius

from Song A Day: The Album by Jonathan Mann



i got a poison swirling mind that sings
a hundred sweet evil melodies when the hour bell rings
you're always wrong except when you're not
you write a song and you're stirring the pot

i got a whirlpool brain draggin' me down
a million 5 ton memories makin' sure that i drown
you're always wrong and then you're always surprised
when reality comes and you realize

that it's something wrong in the way you think
in the wires crossed and burned
and you're laying there always on the brink
of a brain that's overturned
don't just lead yourself
into a state of doubt
don't believe yourself
when you're not telling the truth

i got some good ideas that turn to salt
when i confront what's real the mad gestalt
you're getting crazier with each pasting thought
don't try to hide it when you're stirring the pot

i got a bed that swallows me at night
and then i'm almost the same but not quite
you're always taking the long way around
you're always making the same damn sounds
