The Devil Inside

slam my eyes closed tight
the world goes dark but is laced with light
try to stay calm but the sad side is winning winning
my head how it hurts it is spinning spinning
i wish i just could be quiet mellow or lazy
instead of always feeling so wild and crazy
i tried to be beautiful i did that for you
i tried to be witty and wise that was for you too
i tried to be bright and loyal and true
what a waste of my soul it doesn't matter what i do
i don't want to spend my life big-eyed and sad
i don't want to stalk the earth fierce and mad
why can't i just let go of the past
forget who i was be normal at last
i tried to get it together, i tried
but i'm not sure i'll ever be rid of the devil inside
