Shinedown – I'm Not Alright lyrics

All dressed up
In a white streetjacket
Shut your mouth
No, you can't have it

Paper airplanes
Open window
Here today
And gone tomorrow

{chorus}
I like to stare at the sun
And think about what I've done
I lie awake in my great escape

I like crossing the line
And slowly losing my mind
Are you ok
'Cuz I feel fine
Maybe it's me
I'm just crazy
Maybe I like that I'm not alright

All messed up
And slightly twisted
Am I sick or am I gifted

Paper airplanes
Open window
Here today
And gone tomorrow

{chorus}
I like to stare at the sun
And think about what I've done
I lie awake in my great escape

I like crossing the line
And slowly losing my mind
Are you ok
'Cuz I feel fine
Maybe it's me
I'm just crazy
Maybe I like that I'm not alright

Woh
I don't care if you apologize
I can't lie
Woh
I can't lie

I like to stare at the sun
And think about what I've done
I lie awake in my great escape

I like crossing the line
And slowly losing my mind
Are you ok
'Cuz I feel fine
Maybe it's me
I'm just crazy
Maybe I like that I'm not alright
Maybe I like that I'm not alright

    My opinion is that this guy lives in different way than society people. Probably like a born to be wild but a easier-off and he likes it as I does what he wants and he's happy, crossing the lines it's a proper meaning. He goes beyond what society impones. Not necessarily breaking the low. Just doing what he wants to do without feeling the pression of living in the "normal"way and trying something different, taking risks and not caring for consequences but just living the moment. I really fits in this song. Shinedown are gettin better and better.
