The Illusion of Paradise

Paint the scene in your head
He cuts his red roses next door
While Iím here confined to my porch
Bored and trying to survive
Iím jealous of the clouds
They never get stuck in a small town

Stray cats jumping over the fences
Nobody understands
Why I want to join them †

I want to be as free as the wind
I want more than flowers for friends
These thin walls
Were supposed to keep me safe
But Iím suffocating
From pretending every day isnít the same
Get me out before itís too late
I think Iím going insane

Take a picture of my mind
Iím high and sleeping on the roof
Watching the birds fly by all afternoon
Iím as bruised as the twilight sky
Iím dying trying to catch the stars
Falling in the dark every night

Stray dogs run under the fences
Nobody understands
Why I want to join them

I want to be as free as the wind
I want more than flowers for friends
These thin walls
Were supposed to keep me safe
But Iím suffocating
From pretending every day isnít the same
You didnít save me and now itís too late
I think Iíve gone insane

 
I never want to leave
Iím in love with the trees
My cell is the only place I find peace
Here Iím safe from everyone elseís hell
And people who make me hate myself
So leave me alone I donít need help
