My Separate Reality
by Gov't Mule



Children in the playground, laughing and dancing in the street
All the colors of the rainbow, wrapped in childlike harmony
Me, I'm not laughing, I see things only as they were
When I first needed you, yeah, when I first needed you

Cars passing by, representing my life
I ain't old but I ain't young enough to cry like a baby
And I'm so scared but I won't tell you for fear you'll hate me more
Tough on the outside, tough on the outside, yeah, tough all over

Coulds go rollin' by as I lay floatin' in a stream of semi-consciousness
I'll follow it 'til the end or at least 'til I drown in my separate reality
Sorry there's only room for me

I used to have an angel, she took care of everything
Yeah, so sometimes we cried, maybe more than most, but so what
We shared everything, even some things we should not have shared
Like my separate reality, now there's only room for me

I walk among the criminals and I pray among the saints
And somewhere in between I try to scrape off this war paint
It's cold in here in the corner of my soul, so dark and lonely
Oh but I ain't never gonna let go

Children in the playground, laughing and dancing in the street
All the colors of the rainbow, wrapped in childlike harmony
Me, I'm not laughing or dancing, I see things only as they were
When I first needed you, yeah, when I first needed you

I used to have everything, now you won't even talk to me, but that's alright
'Cause I've got a new friend and her name is tattooed across my chest
And she won't let me down, 'cause I ain't never, never gonna let her in
Tough on the outside, tough on the outside, and it's surely tough
In my separate reality, sorry there's only room for me
In my separate reality, sorry there's only room for me, for me
Sorry there's only room for me
