Hey Mr. Postman, couldn’t you stay
I’ve got nowhere to go now, no plans today
I mean nothing to no one/ Hey, but that’s nobody’s fault

See the people they pass as I sit in my cage
Yeah, they wanna catch glimpses of life in my brain
But they wouldn’t want to live there, and I wouldn’t blame them at all

No, cuz I’m shooting in the dark/ I’m lying through my teeth
Not following the rules/ you’re a fool to follow me
Into anything at all/ So don’t answer when I call or you’ll see
The underside of me
The underside of me, that nobody is supposed to see

Hey Mr. Postman, let me tell you my dreams
Yeah, I know they sound crazy, but I’ll make you see
I’ve really got somethin, sometimes/ And I’ll be someone someday

Yeah when I stop wastin’ all my time/ stop wastin’ all my tears
I’m putting the past behind/ Chasin’ all my fears
And I’ll bury it below, somewhere that you’ll never know, you’ll never see
The underside of me

Just like the underside of loving is pain
A sunny day, then a cold, steady rain
Just like the underside of that beautiful night was that light when the morning came
Just like the underside of living is fear
When you can’t see, you can’t breathe, you can’t hear
And if you stand still just right, until you just might disappear

So I said Hey Mr. Postman, don’t you care about me
Well you come everyday now, only to leave
And I stare out the window, stare at the scars on my face

And their reflection in the glass/ yeah, I know you see me tryin’
But it bites me in the ass/ Almost every single time
But I’m not crazy, I’m not crazy I’m not crazy it’s only
The underside of me
that nobody is supposed to see
