What a wonderful hesitation
collapsed to my knees and fell fast into sleep
who would bear to feel sorry for me
dropped another pill just to calm me
there I was drifting
way out into the sunshine
look at me I'm a tangled puppet
expecting to crash but I'm tied to a string
I might be a mess but I'm sure can survive
find myself awake counting sad days
1-2-3 that's too many for me
reached for my hand but it was already there
dropped another pill just to find me
then I started believin'
that I fell out of a tiny raindrop
that lost it's way when I decided to roam
chasing me was a hungry dweller
come follow me you won't expect the illusion
but I had escaped it by pretending to die
you'll see it's my imagination
hand me your eyes
I will put them in front of mine
you'll see a little better
you'll see a little better
where I am now
what a wonderful destination
I can no longer see
dropped another pill just to kill me
collapsed to my knees and fell fast into sleep
there I was drifting
way out into the sunshine
look at me I'm a tangled puppet
expecting to crash but I'm tied to a string
I might be a mess but I'm sure can survive
but I had escaped it by pretending to die
