Not Yourself



He finds that his friends and family have changed considerably in his absence, and is distraught both by their reactions towards him as well as his own feelings towards them





Well if you’re not yourself

then you must be someone else

And if you lose control

you can know you’ll wake up at home


But seeing you was something I was not prepared for

In fifteen minutes I could lose myself


If you’re not asleep

then there’s something on your mind

Not a word to speak

to the one beside your side


And maybe I cannot account for my own actions

But it seems that you’ve found a way out
