Still Waters Run Deep



I’d like to introduce you to my particular brand of lunacy
A place where songs whirl about wildly in your head
Nonsensical phrases repeat themselves continuously
Pulsing to the crazy beats of some unseen jazz drummer


Still waters run deep, that’s what they say
Still waters run deep, gonna drown that way


It’s a struggle to be Normal, to keep up appearances
To stay calm and rational with all this screaming inside
Drowning in the mad ravings of loud asylum voices
Never showing a hint of the madly-raging inner turmoil


Still waters run deep, that’s what they say
Still waters run deep, gonna drown that way

  1. I think that it *is* "normal" to have those voices in your head. The abnormal part is where we all pretend to each other that we don't. That's why I like blogland...I feel free to let all my neuroses hang out. Plus, it's way cheaper than therapy...

    Hope you're doing okay...this one is pretty heavy, Eric.
