Clear Headed

Got clear headed
Got clear headed
You know it ain't nothin half as bad as I'd dreaded
Now I see clearly
And I see right on
Just had to get my ass up and turn the light on

Well I used to get the answers to my homework from TV
And my teachers told me I was hyperactive and lazy
My parents consequently sent me to the local shrink
He told me elephants were gray, but I saw his were pink
And it made me think

ch

Well I used to hate the thought of facing myself in the mirror
And my only real reaction to reality was fear
And if it crept into my life, I just drowned it out with booze
'Cause I figured if I never tried, then I could never lose
Now look who's

ch

Well I used to think that candy was for shovin' up my nose
And I only liked the girls with diamonds on their panty hose
Mischief was the only thing in which I took delight
And if I didn't get to bed, then I stayed up all night
And that ain't right

ch

Remember when I met you I was far away from me
And I suffered from delusions thinking we could never be
When I was around you, Honey, I was lost in space
Then I turned around and something slapped me 'cross my face
Like Amazing Grace

ch

Well I used to think that when I stepped in dogshit was good luck
And I walked away when a vacuum salesman said his products suck
'Cause I thought that meant a name like Hoover wasn't worth a Dam
And I thought you'd never stick with me because your name is Pam
Now here we am

ch

Now I know that crooked smile means that you're in love with me
