The mirror's stained with dirty looks;
At least it never lies.
The muse is calling down the hall,
Come on, let's get high.

The high price of inspiration
Always leaves me broken.
But I keep coming back for more,
Still I take no caution.

Inspiration with some wings
Is what I'm looking for.
Inspiration with no strings
I'd like that even more.

I'll fly me to a better place
Plan this safe and sound.
Don't you worry, I'll be back
If I ever become tense.

Pretty sure I'll make it,
If I get through today.
Or I'll see tomorrow,
There is always hell to pay.

Inspiration with some wings
Is what I'm looking for.
Inspiration with no strings
I'd like that even more.

Inspiration with some wings
Is what I'm looking for.
Inspiration with no strings
I'd like that even more.
I'd like that even more.
I'd like that even more.
