Mind Tree

It's meant to sound like I'm in a box at the beginning...

lyrics

If I lay on the ground
in the dark, in the corner of my room
would you say that I'm a lost and found
and the pieces of me
are falling off the mind tree
If I ache in my shoes
and my heavy glass is pulling my wait
would you take me as I am
or as the paper plane that you push round
if I pick me up off of my head
and I painted you a picture
of the lover you lament
would you waste my time in the dark
would you catch me while I'm falling off the mind tree

Cause I ache for the mother
who pressed the child against her skin
who breaks down and wonders
where all her good love has been

should I busy it all in the sand
cause I had my time, I had my place
do you wake up from your sleep
with the memory of me falling off the mind tree

And I ache for the lover
who changes the mind again and again
till he can't afford to love her
she's a memory behind, that's where she begins

so If I lay
on the ground
in the dark
in the corner of my room
would you say that I'm a lost and found
and the pieces of me are falling off the mind tree
