I'm in my head, leave the world behind
Life is not working out the way that I designed
Internal stimulus required when I am here
I can't stand the toxic atmosphere

I'm going to fly away, fly away
I'm so tired of being stuck here on the ground
I found my wings today and I'm taking flight
You can't hold me down no more
I'm going to fly, fly, fly away

Yes I need the money, I'm well aware
But reality bites and I don't care
I won't survive if I can't check out and leave
Why won't they just let me be


I work to make them money and it brings me down
All they do keeps me stuck here on the ground
I gotta leave, my soul yearns to be free
I have to go to my place of reverie, somewhere where I'm not me

I know they think I'm being out of line
But I need to find that happy place in my mind
I'm not here right now, I'm somewhere in my head
There's some place else I need to be instead
