What's Going on in Your Head

By Bruce Clifford

The world is going through a cosmetic shift
Falling on its energy and psycho babble rift
Counting all the pieces that are gathered in its grasp
Holding on to all the things we thought would always last

The space and lines between us are instrumental in the pain
Quiet condescending voices point the fingers at the blame
Finding ways to get yourself out of this hook and the disease
One day you're fine, the next you're off swinging in the trees

Take it all down
Turn it around
What's gotten into your head

Living on sight
Creating your own fright
Sometimes I wish you would have ran instead

What's going on in your head

Today turns into tomorrow as the night turns into day
Take away the sorrow and come out into the sun and play
Finding ways to pick you up as you're lying on the ground
One day you're good the next you're out there making annoying sounds

Take it all down
Turn it around
What's gotten into your head

Living on sight
Creating your own fright
Sometimes I wish you would have ran instead

What's going on in your head
What's going on in your head
I would really like to know
If only you would let it show

What's going on in your head
