Going the wrong way on a one-way street
Going the wrong way on a one-way street, ah

I’m feelin’ strangely sane today
I am amazed, I’m brave today
I rearranged my brain today
I rearranged my ways

Going the wrong way on a one-way street, yeah
Going the wrong way on a one-way street, ah

I wait for love, I waste away
Wasting my days, I waste away
I wasted love, I waste away
Wasting my days, I wait

Going the wrong way on a one-way street, yeah
Going the wrong way on a one-way street (yo), ah

Stuck in traffic on the road less traveled, no fast track
That’s how life’ll do you
I had to learn to backtrack before I could move forward
Like quadruple
Uh, I been goin’ insane, ask Jhen√©
I may be way too high, the sky is in my way
My judgement’s cloudy because of it
Still staying grounded like a child on punishment
Runnin’ and tumblin’, stumblin’, hidin’ from idle time (time)
It isn’t in my design to deny the signs (signs)
Always remember the fallen when on the rise (rise)
And when you find your calling, don’t hit decline (hello)
They want me with my back against the wall
I bounce back, that’s a echo, f*ck ’em all
Not sexually, disrespectfully
Instead of catching me, all that’s left of me is tire marks

Yeah (I’m gone)
Melancholy, mediocre mess
Maybe I should just give it a rest now
I just gotta get this off my chest (yeah)
Lately I have been so fuckin’ stressed out
Flippin’-floppy, wishy-washy, never twice the same
Found her calling, now they’re calling her another name
“This bitch crazy, or just maybe so sane she’s insane”
Hard to say, well, who’s to say which way is the wrong way?
Wait, wait

(Yeah, I f*ck with that)

You’re my friend, okay, bye

I am an avid Mac-user, nerd, musician, freelancer, and gamer. Ask me about my collection of M:TG cards! I've also got a horrible habit of needing the absolute newest technological wonder, whether it's stable or not. If they made a home-version of the LHC, I'd have 2. Additionally, I've been playing music for the better part of 14 years. I'm self-taught on piano, guitar, trumpet, trombone, sax, clarinet, bass, drums and other percussion, and around 10 other instruments. I also spend quite a bit of time dabbling in synthesizers, sequencers, and samplers. I'm also founder of Quotelicious where I collect and share the quotes I love.
