semi-mental lyrics – biffy clyro

i smoke my face in, night after night
to numb the pain and stop the world spinning round and round
but how was i to know that in my mind i’m not so pure
look into my eyes you can see i’m many different people

you shone a light on my life, now i’m just sentimental
you shone a light on my life, now i’m just sentimental

i’m not a drinker, i try it every night
i force it down to throw it up and start all over again
but i will climb a tower to stick my flag on top
and look down on everyone, help me to salute the people

you shone a light on my life, now i’m just sentimental
you shone a light on my life, now i’m just sentimental

you have tried to resist the pain, but you know you’re not alone
i have tried to resist the pain, but now i’m all alone

you shone a light on my life, now i’m just sentimental
you shone a light on my life, now i’m just sentimental
