Lyrics: Inside Out

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

*

I’ve winged it long enough

All of these close calls are keeping me up

And I think it’s starting to drive me nuts

And it seems about time I got it right but

I’m falling, landing on my feet

An accidental symphony

Why can’t I see in front of me?

I’m guessing every second guessing every time I’m cutting it fine

*

It’s all inside out and soon to be sailing but I don’t know how

I’m all inside out and waiting here seeing what it’s all about

*

And I want some time to figure it out

A little more before the eleventh hour

And I want someone to be spelling it out

I want to know, want to see transparency ’cause

I’m reaching out, it’s shooting by

It’s getting smaller – maybe I

Am looking behind and side to side as this train keeps rolling on right on time

*

It’s all inside out and soon to be sailing but I don’t know how

I’m all inside out and waiting here seeing what it’s all about

*

In an accidental, perfect plan

The final deal a winning hand

It’s cutting it fine and one of these times

This whole damned thing will fall out of the sky

And I need some strategy

Not cryptic simplicity

So throw me a bone

I want my training wheels

All this time I need a talking neon sign

I’m running backward, maybe I

Could turn around if I had any idea of forward, back or up and down

*

It’s all inside out and soon to be sailing but I don’t know how

I’m all inside out and waiting here seeing what it’s all about

*
