YOU GOTTA BE OUT OF YOUR MIND

Hey, my friend, I can see thru your lies
Even tho I've been blind
You have treated me like a fool
Then expected me never to mind
I played your game and almost lost
My sense of wrong from right

You gotta be out of your mind if you think you're going to do that to me
You got to be out of your mind

I have lived under your set of rules
The strangest time I have known
You cut your life into many separate worlds
That I was not to be shown
I've been burned by trusting you
I'm not hanging round for more

You gotta be out of your mind if you think you're going to do that to me
You got to be out of your mind

I gave you everything in good faith
I'll take your betrayal in stride
I need you now just to stay away
I don't want our lives any more entwined
As shadows deepen around your eyes
I see a jaded mind

You gotta be out of your mind if you think you're going to do that to me
You got to be out of your mind
