Spending time in my head now
The pain has threatened my fear
Memories are waitin'
I ain't one to play dead now
I take a look at my dreams as they leave

Shut the door behind you
And throw away the key
Hindsight's twenty-twenty
But it's all I got to see
(All I got to see)

I am looking for ways to get by on my own
No one's holding my hand
No more wasting my time around this mental hospital
I think it's time to leave

It's time to get committed
Time to get committed

People call me a nutjob
(Nutjob)
But I will take that bet
I'll raise, I need a push, I need a shove
I need somebody to get me over the hump
I think it's time to leave

I am looking for ways to get by on my own
No one's holding my hand
No more wasting my time around this mental hospital
I think it's time to leave

It's time to get committed
It's time to get committed

I don't know if I'm capable of living a life on my own
(On my own)
Past is utterly inescapable, regret is all I call home
(I call home)
Am I held responsible for me?
When I wasn't taught no responsibility

I am looking for ways
No more wasting my time, silly
I don't know, I don't know
I don't know, baby, I don't know

I think it's time to leave
I think it's time to leave
I think it's time to leave

It's time to get committed
It's time to get committed
It's time to get committed
It's time girl
It's time
