Made Up Mind

lyrics

Oh my dear
We started out so sincere
And eager to please with acts
of words of rhyme
Every look
Could fill up the thickest book
And all of the words mistook
The meanings they'd convey
Now it's like
The distance from dark to light
Your fingers are closed alright
You keep them all your own

Drown it out
Turn it down
The reason runs around in circles
Oh what good then could it be
Other than deceiving me?
Drown the doubt with the doubt
That any could be worth the trouble
No, is that what you want?

Circumvent
Callous and cold and content
Evading the laws that sent
Us all so far away
A made up mind
Is something that's hard to find
If ever I'm true and right
I'll claim one for my own, my own, my own
Which is worse
Ambivalence or a hearse
One is for certain and
The other runs away
away, away, away, away, away, away, away

Drown it out
Turn it down
The reason runs around in circles
Oh what good then could it be
Other than deceiving me?
Drown the doubt with the doubt
That any could be worth the trouble
No, is that what you want?

All this time
I keep on seeking a made up mind
Everybody tells you what's true and right
Decide choose sides it's not so hard
To make it up and try
ohhhhhhhh

All your life
You do it again and again and you try
You do it again then die
And everything good gets forgot
What's the use
Of saying it's sure and true
To only return to the dirt and the dust
And you're done
It's enough to get by?

Drown it out
Turn it down
The reason runs around in circles
Oh what good then could it be
Other than deceiving me
Drown the doubt with the doubt
That any could be worth the trouble
No, is that what you want?
No, that's not what you want.

Drown it out
Turn it down
The reason runs around in circles
Oh what good then could it be
Other than deceiving me
Drown the doubt with the doubt
That any could be worth the trouble
No, that's not what you want.
