Rhyme & Reason

Oh well oh well so here we stand
But we stand for nothing
My heart calls to me in my sleep
How can I turn to it
‘Cause I ‘m all locked up in this
Dark place –
And I do not know
I ‘m as good as dead
My head aches –
Warped and tied up
I need to kill this pain

My head won ‘t leave my head alone
And I don ‘t believe it will
Until I ‘m dead and gone
My head won ‘t leave my head alone
And I don ‘t believe it will
Until I ‘m six feet underground

How long I ‘m tied up
My mind in knots –
My stomach reels
In concern for what I might do or
What I ‘ve don
It ‘s got me living in fear
Well I know these voices must
Be my soul
I ‘ve had enough I ‘ve had enough of being alone
I ‘ve got no place to go

My head won ‘t leave my head alone
And I don ‘t believe it will
Until I ‘m dead and gone
My head won ‘t leave my head alone
And I don ‘t believe it will
Until I ‘m six feet under ground

Six feet under
In y grave
Lying wired and shut and quiet in my grave
Leave me here
Leave me here to waste here
So young and here I am again
Talking to myself
A T.V. blares
Oh man
Oh how I wish I didn ‘t smoke
Or drink to reason with my head

But sometimes this thick confusion
Grows until I cannot bear it at all
Needle to the vein
Needle to the vein
Take this needle from my vein my friend
I said

My head won ‘t leave my head alone
And I don ‘t believe it will
Until I ‘m dead and gone
My head won ‘t leave my head alone
And I don ‘t believe it will
Until I ‘m dead and gone

In my grave
Lying
Lying cold in my grave
The reason –
My reason
Take my head off this terror
The fearing won ‘t come back
I can ‘t see
My mind ‘s all wiped clean
The needle
Make my great escape
I seem caught in time
My head leaves me behind
Body fall cold
And I see heaven

— Dave Mathews Band
