Looking up I saw nothing 
But blue in the bluest sky
And now it's creeping across my eye
 Going down in my mind, down in my mind
I'm high and I'm hopeless 
So help me to get untied 
Fast asleep now I'm going blind
 Falling down in my mind, down in my mind
Just fine
 Emulate the style 
A competition smile
Now I'm running, not looking 
And opening up my brain  Where it's easy to lose my name
 Looking dumb in the rain, dumb in the rain
I'm hoping you'll notice 
That no one else helps me grow
Oh, it's not easy to let you know
What I'm dying to show
 Dying until you know
 Pretending all the while 
A competition smile
Now I've thrown something far
And it haunts me like a curse 
I'm like a stone  Falling hard
And I'm only getting worse
 Looking up I saw nothing 
But blue in the bluest sky
And now it's creeping across my eye
And going down in my mind, down in my mind
I'm high and I'm hopeless 
So help me to get untied 
Fast asleep now I'm going blind
 Falling down in my mind, down in my mind
Just fine
 Pretending all the while 
A competition smile
I'm hiding high.
