The Lyrics

To be sung by 1 person
I’m this and that, my head's both so mic it
I feel I’m 2 people and we’re sure to like it
Feel really hot while still feelin' cool
I’m really wise, but I’m a fool

Oh no seems I never agree with me
Can't decide between movies and TV
Sometimes get serious while taking things light
I hit the bed early but still party all night

My friends are sayin’ that I just can't last
I go slowly and suddenly move fast
I can be silent, and then I might shout
And I’m always together my head just bursts out

I take 10 jumps forward, then I run right back
I don’t get anywhere but get back on track
And I know I just can’t even start explaining me
You know I got a split personality

Whod’ve thought that I could be sane
I mess things up and I clean it that day
Hide things from myself, find them again
I take it easy and then I start to fret

Can’t find my money, so it’s like I’m broke
Don’t like cigarettes but like cooking smoke
Oh my head can just never agree
But all these things are just a composite of me

I run two miles forward, then walk back
I don’t know where I am but I find the track
I don’t know if it’s fiction or factually
That I have got a split personality
I know it, or do I?

Nothing in common with myself
Put stuff in basements then up on shelves
I walk up stairs then I go down
I jump in the air, don’t like the ground
When my head’s gone it’s got directions
Then it returns and makes its connections
Try to fight it but my head disagrees
Got a split personality

I don’t even know how I have lasted this long
I get things right then I get things wrong
Don’t think I’ll ever get my head quite resolved
I won’t unravel it, mystery unsolved

I swim two laps forward then I go right back
Don’t know where I’m going and head feels attacked
And I don’t think you’ll ever even comprehend me
It’s all ‘cause I got split personalities

9 miles forward, 10 miles back
I end up somewhere, don’t know where I’m at
And you know I read fiction and fact equally
It’s cause I got a split personality

3 laps forward, 4 laps back
I swim in circles but stay somewhat intact
Contradictions I can’t understand me
It’s cause I got a split personality

5 steps upward, 6 steps back
I walk back and forth to keep my mind on track
Don’t know if I’m coming or going
I’ve got a split, a split, personality
