​Drive Myself Distracted

This song is by Echobelly and appears on the US release of the album Lustra (1997).

Like an ordinary, like an ordinary thought
That drifts into a naked eye
How extraordinary, things are happening
Can't stop myself, I'm sinking into broken ice
I've a head that burns
Can I hold my head up
There's a storm around me
Love its violence, a fever rush
A push, a shove inside
Do I wanna do what I do
I wanna loosen the noose
And take a tumble as I roll the dice
I've a head that burns
And I hold my head up high, because I can
And if I drive myself distracted
That is just the way I am
If it pleases me to waste may time
Then try to understand
If I lose myself in what I do
That's just because I can
Like a tidal wave, I'm coming close
To knowing what I am
Are you turning corners, are you coming closer
Close enough to take you for a ride
Do you ever do what you fear
You ever lived for the thrill
Enough to fill you up inside
I've a head that burns
And I hold my head up high, bacause I can
And if I drive myself distracted
That is just the way I am
If it pleases me to waste may time
Then try to understand
If I lose myself in what I do
That's just because I can
Like a tidal wave, I'm coming close
To knowing what I am
