I’m not sure when this ride began or ends
I’ve been on this fucked up thing for so long
They keep telling me I’m free
not sure exactly what that means
I know this fucking lie is killing me
In my head there’s a room full of vixens
Am I just a dog with a few too senses in my head?
Can I get off this ride today?
Because it’s broken
How many days will I ride on this carousel
Thinking I'd like a change of scenery?
Maybe I’ll get off this ride today?
Let me guess you'll quit your job today
Might I envision life that’s great?
Get in your car and drive away
Because where I’m at I’m just a stray
Keep dreaming fool
Connect the dots and find the stars align for me
The chandelier unhinged from the ceiling…
Mothers finest china crashing down to the floor…
Because you’re broken
Your dreams are broken
Yes your dreams are broken
