"Inside Outsider" lyrics - ATMOSPHERE

"Inside Outsider"

Inside out and upside down
Who qualifies to try to judge me now
Love is what grows off the synthetic of happiness
I wear a warning sticker that says "health to the hazardous"

If all of Minneapolis fell into that river
It wouldn't disturb a word that I deliver
I found my confusion, I lost your religion
Analyst is I am, corrupt the optimism

From the dock I fishin', feed the worm I hook
Write another piece, read another book
Once upon a time there was the ends
Do you mind if I steal this pen?

I'm not a big fan as I once was
I gotta learn to respect that lunch buzz
Such and such and nothin' much
What the fuck girl I'm thinkin' that we should couple up

So here I stand from the outside in
Tryin' to recall how I swam to this island
I wonder if I was to scream till my voice quits
Would they let me push the buttons
Would they let me hold the joystick?

Well, maybe if I acted a little crazy
They would play me and they would feed me to they babies
Can't help but laugh at everything I cry about
'Cause I've been staring at myself from the inside out

Well who's that knockin' on my head so early in the a.m.
Must be the landlord I'm late on my payment
Or maybe it's my ex 'cause I owe her some affection
Its probably the department of corrections

'Cause I've been doin' it wrong for too damn long
Chewing on a soggy blade of grass
Put the money in the bag and make it fast
'Cause can't none of y'all fools save my ass

How can I hold, if I don't know what I hold
The outsider tryin' to climb out of the cold
Time and time again I question the answer
'Cause the soldier always falls in love with the dancer

I can't play passing, the truth hurts
I wanna rock the boat, but I wanna rock you first
So if I was meant to say everything that's in my mouth
I'mma start right here from the inside out
