lyrics

I get so sidetracked
So many things to do and be, be
Step back
And look at all the problems in me
Inside of me

I know what I want and I know what I need
But what I want is killing me

Have you ever seen the wind blow so hard?
I knew the guard he opened the gates for me
Only to see the problems inside of me
So over whelming yes, so overwhelming yes

But I wont consume your quantities
Cause what I want is killing me
I know what I want and I know what I need
But what I want is killing me

And you know it’s killing me
Re, reality
Re, re, reality
And she just don’t want me

Have you ever seen a man work so hard at doing nothing?
Well, you can say that man might be me
It just might be me
Have you ever see the wind blow so hard?
I knew the guard; he opened the gates for free
Didn’t cost me nothing, didn’t cost me nothing
No nothing
But nothing is free

And I won’t consume your quantities
Cause what I want is killing me
I know what I want and I know what I need
But what I want is killing me, killing me,
Killing me
