Shawn Martin – They Say I'm Troubled lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm a lost hope but I won't let them get me
Drench out the fear of the other life out of my dreams

They will not catch me while I'm asleep
I hide under the covers hoping not to be seen
Away from the fire so I cannot wake the devil up

I rise to awake to the evil grin upon me
I look around and notice something isn't right here
I'm here but he's not, oh, where can he be
?

[Chorus]
And they say that I don't know what I'm doing
But I know in my head that they are confusing
Because they know how far I'm going to be going
They have it in for me and they say I'm troubled
And they say that I don't know what I'm doing
But I know in my head that they are confusing
Because they know how far I'm going to be going
They have it in for me and they say I'm troubled

[Verse 2]
The other side of my head is lost in a cage with no key to be found
Shackled up with no where's to go or a place to hide
Awake now but soon you shall sleep in the fire
Turn yourself in and the innocence of I shall be damaged
I am the true one of the two but your madness will criminalize me
The cure is around but it's harder and harder to find it
But in the end will it matter, for they say that I'm troubled?

[Chorus]
And they say that I don't know what I'm doing
But I know in my head that they are confusing
Because they know how far I'm going to be going
They have it in for me and they say I'm troubled
And they say that I don't know what I'm doing
But I know in my head that they are confusing
Because they know how far I'm going to be going
They have it in for me and they say I'm troubled

[Verse 3]
Darkness rises and you slay upon those I love
You dirty and sick criminal how could you do that to them?
Enraged in myself it sickens me to a messy vomit beneath me
It's you who needs the help I was fine before you came along
You aren't in control of me anymore it is I who makes the choices
Drugged me to releases the darkness that is you I wish wasn't there
That doctor was only helping me

[Bridge]
Deep
Can you see this?
Dismantle the bodies
Just tell me why
It's me who is getting punished
Just please back off
Get the hell out of my head

[Chorus]
And they say that I don't know what I'm doing
But I know in my head that they are confusing
Because they know how far I'm going to be going
They have it in for me and they say I'm troubled
And they say that I don't know what I'm doing
But I know in my head that they are confusing
Because they know how far I'm going to be going
They have it in for me and they say I'm troubled
