James Songbook - 15. Absentia

Absentia

 

 

Inside my headphones,

I can block it all away,

Not listen to what they say.

 

Inside my headphones,

It doesn’t matter anyway,

No one can shit on my day.

 

 

Cool jazz, classic rock, metal or house,

I listen to my own beat, quiet as a mouse,

I can’t care for life’s random shit,

I have had enough of it.

 

 

Inside my headphones,

Things finally make sense,

It is my only defense.

 

Inside my headphones,

I can find some peace,

All the random noises cease.

 

 

Cool jazz, classic rock, metal or house,

I listen to my own beat, quiet as a mouse,

I can’t care for life’s random shit,

I have had enough of it.

 

 

Inside my headphones,

In my own little world,

With my own soundtrack unfurled.

 

 

Cool jazz, classic rock, metal or house,

I listen to my own beat, quiet as a mouse,

I can’t care for life’s random shit,

I have had enough of it.

 

 

Don’t ask me to take them off unless you want to hear,

What I think, what I feel, and what I fear.

I’m happy just to fade into the background,

With my own thoughts and my own sounds.
