A Well​-​Distracted Mind

lyrics

Gotta keep myself busy, so everything don’t fall apart
Gotta keep myself moving, even if I’m moving back to the start.
Coz if I ain't got nothing, nothing in my head,
My mind gets messy, wandering instead.
If I ain't got nothing, nothing else will keep the thoughts at bay

Because we’re scared of what’s ahead of us,
We run from what’s behind.
It all comes down, eventually,
To a well distracted mind.

Gotta keep myself busy, please put something in my hands.
Gotta keep my mind free of, all these feelings I don't understand.
Coz when I ain’t got nothing, nothing left to do,
My mind gets hazy, it's hard to push through.
When I ain't got nothing, nothing else will keep the thoughts at bay.

Because we’re scared of what’s ahead of us,
We run from what’s behind.
It all comes down, eventually,
To a well distracted mind.

Yes we’re scared of what’s ahead of us,
We run from what’s behind.
It all comes down, eventually,
To a well distracted mind.
