The Artichokes – Acid lyrics

There's acid in my stomach and there's blood in my veins
Kids are busy playing in the sun and the rain
I can't help feeling concerned that I am insane
There's someone staring at me and a place is a plane

The sky is far too bright but it is night where I stare
It's sunny where I'm standing but it's flooding somewhere
And I can't be concerned because I really don't care
If where I am is fine why do I think about there

And it's fine I don't have the time
For concern for the things I've learned
And I know that someday I'll grow
But right now I just can't figure out how

I'm walking up the stairs that make the life that I live
I'm having trouble caring finding shits that I give
And I can't help pretending that I like to forgive
Forgetting is the problem for the people I'm with

There's books up on the bookshelves but the spines aren't cracked
Forgotten where they're standing but there's knowledge untapped
And I can't be concerned because it's knowledge I lack
But someone somewhere wrote them and they make me feel bad
