Sometimes I Laugh to Keep From Screaming


Sometimes I have to laugh just to keep from screaming
Sometimes I have to stay awake to keep from dreaming
Sometimes I need to get away just to keep from being stuck
Sometimes I have to roll the dice just to test my luck
Sometimes I have to speak just to break the silence
Sometimes I have to rebel just to break from the compliance
