Lyrics

I WAS THINKING LATE LAST NIGHT
BOUT ALL THE THINGS INSIDE MY LIFE
THAT DRIVE ME HALF INSANE FROM TIME TO TIME
UPS AND DOWNS, LEFTS AND RIGHTS
POLITICS AND TRAFFIC LIGHTS
THE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS I CANT FIND

LIFE'S A STATE OF MIND

LOOKING FOR A JOB AGAIN
MY BANK ACCOUNT IS WEARING THIN
MY OVERHEAD TAKES EACH AND EVERY DIME
THE INTERVIEWER SHOOK HIS HEAD
'YOU'RE OVER QUALIFIED' HE SAID
AND BLOWIN' UP WAS JUST A WASTE OF TIME

LIFE'S A STATE OF MIND

YOU CAN TAKE THE FALL
OR BEAT YOUR HEAD AGAINST THE WALL
STIFFIN' UP LIKE FRANKENSTEIN
OR REALIZE LIFE'S A STATE OF MIND
CAUSE SOME DAYS WE LOSE,
SOME DAYS WE WIN,
IT'S UP TO US TO SINK OR SWIM,
ME I FIND THAT FLOATING WORKS JUST FINE
CAUSE LIFE'S A STATE OF MIND

ANOTHER MOOD, ANOTHER DAY,
& I CAN SEE IT GO MY WAY
CAUSE I'M THE ONE THAT'S MAKING UP THIS RHYME
I'M GONNA LAUGH AT TWISTS OF FATE,
NO MATTER WHAT, I FEEL GREAT,
MY ATTITUDES IN STEP ALONG THE LINE

CAUSE LIFE'S A STATE OF MIND

UP CAN TAKE THE FALL
OR BEAT YOUR HEAD AGAINST THE WALL
STIFFIN' UP LIKE FRANKENSTEIN
OR REALIZE LIFE'S A STATE OF MIND
CAUSE SOME DAYS WE LOSE,
SOME DAYS WE WIN,
IT'S UP TO US TO SINK OR SWIM,
ME I FIND THAT FLOATING WORKS JUST FINE
CAUSE LIFE'S A STATE OF MIND
A STATE OF MIND
