I Am Shotgun

 

I feel something creeping up my spine, going straight to my head
My defenses breaking, walls are shaking, I am under attack

Slowly but surely it gets a hold of me
It's eating me alive

Before long, I know I'm gonna crack
And watch it take its place in the driver's seat and I am

Shotgun, I'm just a ride-along
Destination unknown

I'm riding shotgun
Me and the other one
Going downhill from here on

These days it feels like it's impossible to even get out of bed
It's like I know which buttons to push but my thoughts are no longer my own

Slowly but surely it gets a hold of me
It's eating me alive

Before long, I know I'm gonna crack
And watch it take its place in the driver's seat and I am

Shotgun, I'm just a ride-along
Destination unknown

I'm riding shotgun
Me and the other one
Going downhill from here on

It's a tricky situation
My frustration
I no longer feel like myself

Dead man driving
Dead man driving

My defenses breaking, walls are shaking, I am under attack

Dead man driving
Dead man driving

Am I losing my mind?
Am I losing my mind?
