Except My Mind


I know something's been on your mind
I am deaf dumb and legally blind
I know everyone's got to find a place to go
A place to go that they can call their own

I see people standing next to me
They call out, they shout
Just like a shipwreck lost beneath the waves of the sea
I feel none of this is vaguely real
Vaguely real
And a bit surreal (what's the deal?)

  Outside the wind is howling
  In here the sun is shining down
  I know nothing is gonna define me
  I know that the world keeps spinning round
  Time is just an illusion I've found
  I know all of this is gonna be fine
  Except my mind

I am waking up the same old little man
But see I've changed
I've added on a bit more age
It's all a ritual de lo habitual
A ritual de lo habitual
And I wish you well, you know I wish you well
'Cause I'm moving on, yes I'm moving on
C'mon, get along, just get out of my way

  Outside the wind in howling
  In hear the sun's still beating down
  I know nothing is gonna define me
  I know the world keeps spinning round
  Time is just an illusion I've found
  I know all of this is gonna be so fine, fine, fine
  Except my mind
