You have got to lose your mind just to find your peace of mind...

I knew a girl once

She liked to fly high

And gazed into the night, let the sky take her in

She was usually trapped in a cage

the home of her family

But she would brush against the clouds in her dreams

And slept on made up things, like freedom

She expected so much from the world

Things she should've known wouldn't come

She was on repeat, a happy machine

Like a broken record on drugs

Every day her smile would irk my sadness

Her brightness would get on my nerves

So I wiped the real, dark, side of the world on her face

Showed her why she can't smile all the time

And I suppose she drifted to that world

Because I never saw her again
