(Verse 1)
I just want to be free
Of all obligations, preconceived notions, unreal expectations
I need to get this weight off of me
I just want to be me
Unapologetically, despite what they expect from me, I can't let it get to me
But I know the change starts with me
(Chorus x2)
Me, myself and I
A perfect paradise
Dreaming of a ribbon in the sky
or is this a vision in my mind?
(Verse 2)
Where you keep all of the benefits with none of the residuals
Nothing's so serious and nothing's taken literal
Words come easy, there's no trouble getting in the zone
And I'm in the zone, so here's my song:
I'm leaving on my spaceship
I need some isolation
I'm looking for a place where there's no limitations and there's no imitations
I know just who I am and I don't feel the need to say it
'Cause there's no one to prove it to
I'm feeling so beautiful
'Cause there's no one to prove it to
I'm feeling so beautiful
and I'm free to be me
No explanations
I'm tired of trying to chase it, it's taking more than patience
You gotta make it happen but you cannot force it
Goddamn I wish I could understand all the forces at hand
So therapeutic
It's right here, I'm just praying I don't lose it
That blind fear will be the reason that I do
but at the end of the day, it's just music
Nah, it's so much more
And it stresses me out, and I don't know what for
'Cause I love it so much, I feel it's all that I know
It's the only thing I have to free my soul
and I know, I'm done with getting by
I'm tired of getting high
Searching for what's impossible to find, 'cause it's here
I'm just imprisoned in my mind
(Chorus x2)
I know not what I say
Today's not yesterday
I know the leaves are green
