I'm just a tenant, paying rent inside this body and I

Got two windows and those windows, well I'll call them my eyes
         Cm                                  D#
I'm just going where the wind blows, I don't get to decide

G#                        Fm
Sometimes I think too much, yeah, I get so caught up
Cm                      D#
I'm always stuck in my head

Then I tied up my linen with five strips of ribbon I found
            G#
Scaled the side of the building
   Fm                         Cm
I ran to the hills till they found me
D#              G#
And they put me back in my cell
Fm              Cm                      D#
All by myself, alone with my thoughts again
            G#                  Fm                  Cm
I guess my mind is a prison and I'm never gonna get out

So they tranquilized me, analyzed me, threw me back in my cage
Then they tied me to an IV, told me I was insane
I'm a prisoner, a visitor inside of my brain
And no matter what I do, they try to keep me in chains

Sometimes, I think too much, yeah, I get so caught up
I'm always stuck in my head
I wish I could escape, I tried to yesterday
Took all the sheets off my bed

Chorus:
Then I tied up my linen with five strips of ribbon I found
Scaled the side of the building,
I ran to the hills 'til they found me
And they put me back in my cell, all by myself
Alone with my thoughts again
Guess my mind is a prison and I'm never gonna get out

G#                       Fm
Said even if it's true, no matter what I do
Cm                 D#
I'm never gonna escape
G#                        Fm
I won't give up on hope, secure another rope
Cm                   D#
And try for another day
G#                       Fm
Said even if it's true, no matter what I do
Cm                D#
I'm never gonna escape
G#                        Fm
I won't give up on hope, secure another rope
Cm                   D#
And try for another day

Chorus:
Then I tied up my linen with five strips of ribbon I found
Scaled the side of the building,
I ran to the hills 'til they found me
And they put me back in my cell, all by myself
Alone with my thoughts again
Guess my mind is a prison and I'm never gonna get out
