PAUSE: Strum the E note (022100)

Intro x1

Verse:

He struggled to get through his day
He was helplessly behind
He poured himself onto the page
Writing for hours at a time

Pre-Chorus:

As a man he was a danger to himself
Fearful and sad most of the time
He was drifting in and out of sanity
But in every other way he was fine

Chorus:

He's a Monday morning lunatic
Disturbed from time to time
Lost within himself
In his solitary shell

(Pre-Chorus):

A momentary maniac
With casual delusions
When will he be let out
Of his solitary shell
