Verse 1:
The days fly by and I don't know why
Yeah I don't even have time to think
Just another little thing caught in the way
Somebody better call me a shrink
But I can't keep up yeah I can't keep going
Maybe it's best if I'm on my way
Cause I'm a little piece of mischief you just can't get away

I can't think straight
But I can't move on
And I can't think straight
Oh don't get me wrong (x2)

Verse 2:
Lyrically I'm in another realm
Kicking back rhymes just to make a new sound
People tell me that I can't do that
I can't play guitar and still can't rap
But I'm like slim shady
shooting like Tom Brady
People by the end of my show you'll be going crazy
Never seen a kid like me on the track
Spitting out words that he can never take back
But if you don't like me
Know I'm the one and only
Well even a blind man could see
That I'm not to be reckoned with
Come to my house
And get you'll be out within a millisecond
Well Same with the stage
You're up in my brain
Like a wild beast
That could never be tamed
But in just one instant all can change
So isn't it just really strange
And Maybe it's just a little messed up
How I bad I got messed up
That night
But i hope your parents won't hate me
For the rest of your life

I can't think straight
But I can't move on
And I can't think straight
Oh don't get me wrong (x2)

Verse 3:
I'll just sit on the back burner
Waiting for your back to turn corners
I'm more of a doer
and if only I could warn her
That I don't learn often
I just pray to God
That I don't end up working
5 to 9 in an office
Plagued with disease
Inside and out
Taking medicine to finally feel proud
I'm born to believe that if I want to achieve
I must live in the shadow of the disbelief
But we're all on the edge of extinction
Moving towards some idea of ambition
Wishing that our first step wasn't the hardest on this mission
And I guess we'll just be forever wishing
