messed up head/get ready

Messed up your head

Hey girl your having trouble with reality

You doubt the world at every turn

Can’t cope with your mentality

Everyone has been through some rain

Gotta learn to cope with it

Before it drives you insane

Anger is good in a small dose

But living with you is beyond a joke

Why can’t you let go of your ghosts

You carry them everyday

Refusing to believe the truth

Till you blend in with the decay

Chorus

Who ever messed up your head

Did a great job

For your heart is stone dead

Can’t stand to see you crawl anymore

It just shouldn’t be like this

And your bitterness ain’t what I’m looking for

I saw your best friend the other day

Said she can’t see you for a while

Seems to me like she’s breaking away

I saw that look in your eyes

It haunts my nights and days

As another friendship is in demise

Sometimes all I feel is pity

I just can’t help it ,I know it’s wrong

For you are like a run down inner city

That I long to bring some light

Take your upside down world

And place it upright

Chorus

Who ever messed up your head

Did a great job

For your heart is stone dead

Can’t stand to see you crawl anymore

It just shouldn’t be like this

And your bitterness ain’t what I’m looking for

Get ready

Every day times are grey

Look in your pages what do they say

Do you buy or sell

Do you put someone else in hell

Boss on your back Are you on the right track

Will you miss her when she don’t come back

Little wife left at home

How sure are you she don’t roam

Neglected rejected

When was the last time you connected

Make or break

Fortune or fate

chorus

Get ready a change is on the way

Just like an ocean spray

Gonna hit you smack in the face

If you loose Ain’t no disgrace

The odds are against you

Stubborn as an old tattoo

So get ready hang on be steady

The script is written already

Are you fit are you strong

Do you know where you belong

Seasons come and go

Still have to reap what you sow

Are you up for this

It’s gonna take more than a kiss

Time to rearrange your outlook

Your life is like a dirty old brook

Time to clean your water

Do you see the mess do you see the slaughter

Put on a new face make it brave

You Ain’t got time to shave

chorus

Get ready a change is on the way

Just like an ocean spray

Gonna hit you smack in the face

If you loose Ain’t no disgrace

The odds are against you

Stubborn as an old tattoo

So get ready hang on be steady

The script is written already
