inside of me lyrics – eric clapton

the point on the water, there’s a chill in the air
a vibe in the darkness, but there’s n*body there
i look for the reason but there’s nothing to see
just the hole in my memory where my mind used to be

tell me why
can i find no relief in my heart?
i reside
in a world that is falling apart

out of my mind baby, show me a sign, baby
show me a way, to get back on time
please where do we go, baby, how will i know?
who holds the key, is it hidden inside of me?

but why should i worry and why do i care?
when this road that i walk on is going nowhere
i stand and i study every face in the crowd
see the fear in their eyes, they must be thinking out loud

tell me why
can i find no relief in my heart?
’cause i reside
in a world that is falling apart

out of my mind baby, show me a sign
baby, show me a way, to get back on time
where do we go baby, how will i know?
who holds the key, is it hidden inside of me?

scratching the surface, it all looks the same
a world full of anger with no one to blame
but who can i turn to, who holds the key?
and who has the answer? i think it’s inside of me

tell me why
can i find no relief in my heart?
’cause i reside
to the world that is falling apart

out of my mind, baby, show me a sign, baby
show me a way, to get back on time
where do we go, baby, how will i know?
who holds the key, is it hidden inside of me?

out of my mind baby, show me a sign
show me a way, to get back on time
please where do we go baby, how will i know?
who holds the key, is it hidden inside of me?

{all things considered it looks as though
utopia were far closer to us than anyone
only fifteen years ago, could have imagined}

{then, i projected it six hundred years into the future
today it seems quite possible that the
horror may be upon us within a single century}

{that is, if we refrain from blowing
ourselves to smithereens
in the interval}

{indeed, unless we choose to decentralize
and to use applied science
not as the end to which human beings are to be made the means}

{but as the means to producing a race of free individuals
we have only two alternatives to choose from
either a number of national}
