Crazy Diamond

By Erica De Petrillo

 

The planet and the stars are in my helmet

When I take it off

It all falls apart

Unitl I build it up again

 

The adventure awaits

At the door, at the gates

But they’re locked, keeps me safe

Whenever I’m awake

 

Get me out of my head, I said

Get me out of my bed

 

I sail the seven seas in my head

And in my heart

If the world comes to an end

I’ll have done my part

I got lost on the way home

I can’t go

I can’t go

 

The records can speak all the words I fear

And live the lives

A hundred times

I made up in my dreams

 

The disasters I try to avoid

Create more, I’ve destroyed

All my hopes

Of becoming who I want

Not that I had any before

 

Get me out of my head, I said

Get me out of my bed

 

I sail the seven seas in my head

And in my heart

If the world comes to an end

I’ll have done my part

I got lost on the way home

I can’t go

I can’t go

 

This is what I get for trying

Don’t I always get defeat

Maybe this time, I can build something concrete

Maybe this time, I can get rid of that feeling

 

I sail the seven seas in my head

And in my heart

If the world comes to an end

I’ll have done my part

I’m just right back at the start

It’s not so bad after all

After all
