Mind Maze
Katy Perry Lyrics


I'm losing all direction
Slipping into quicksand
I've shattered the illusion, seen behind the curtain
I'm disenchanted
Dancing on a wire
Juggling desire
Every hit gets harder when you're fighting without armor
I'm disheartened

Do I start over, rediscover?
Submit to the sweet surrender

It's a mind maze
All these head games
Caught in a cage
A complex cage
Am I a car on fire?
Will I be devoured?
I gotta free myself and get out of my own way

I used to be so sparkling, but now it's not so charming
What used to stimulate me now can barely wake me
I'm unresponsive
Will I find salvation, some kind of moderation?
Spinning all these plates is gonna be a challenge
A delicate balance

So do I start over, rediscover?
Submit to the sweet surrender

It's a mind maze
All these head games
Caught in a cage
A complex cage
Am I a car on fire?
Will I be devoured?
I gotta free myself and get out of my own way

Get out of my own way
Get out of my own way
Get out of my own way

Do I start over, rediscover?
I submit to your, your sweet surrender
Your sweet surrender
Your sweet surrender
No

I'm losing all direction
Slipping into quicksand
I've shattered the illusion
Seen behind the curtain
I'm disenchanted

Dancing on a wire
Juggling desire
Every hit gets harder
When you're fighting without armour
I'm disheartened

Do I start over?
Rediscover?
Submit to the sweet surrender

It's a mind maze
All these heart games
Caught in a cage
A complex catch
Am I a common folk?
Will I beat it all?
I'm gonna feed myself and get out of my own way

Used to be so sparkling
But now it's not so charming
What used to stimulate me
Now can barely wake me
I'm unresponsive

Will I find salvation?
Some kind of moderation
Spinning all these plates is
Gonna be a challenge
A delicate balance

So do I start over?
Rediscover?
Submit to the sweet surrender

It's a mind maze
All these heart games
Caught in a cage
A complex catch
Am I a common folk?
Will I beat it all?
I'm gonna feed myself and get out of my own way

Get out of my own way
Get out of my own way
Get out of my own way

So I start over
Re-rediscover
I submit to your, your sweet surrender
Your sweet surrender
Your sweet surrender
No

Do I start over, rediscover?

Will I find salvation, some kind of moderation?
Spinning all these plates is gonna be a challenge
A delicate balance


So do I start over, rediscover?
Submit to the sweet surrender


It's a mind maze, all these hurricanes
Caught in a cage, a complex cage
Am I caught on fire? Will I be devoured?
I'm gonna free myself and get out of my own way


Get out of my own way
Get out of my own way
Get out of my own way


Do I start over, rediscover?
I submit to your, your sweet surrender
Your sweet surrender
Your sweet surrender

"Mind Maze"

I'm losing all direction
Slipping into quicksand
I've shattered the illusion
Seen behind the curtain
I'm disenchanted

Dancing on a wire
Juggling desire
Every hit gets harder
When you're fighting without armour
I'm disheartened

Do I start over?
Rediscover?
Submit to the sweet surrender

It's a mind maze
All these heart games
Caught in a cage
A complex catch
Am I a common folk?
Will I beat it all?
I'm gonna feed myself and get out of my own way

Used to be so sparkling
But now it's not so charming
What used to stimulate me
Now can barely wake me
I'm unresponsive

Will I find salvation?
Some kind of moderation
Spinning all these plates is
Gonna be a challenge
A delicate balance

So do I start over?
Rediscover?
Submit to the sweet surrender

It's a mind maze
All these heart games
Caught in a cage
A complex catch
Am I a common folk?
Will I beat it all?
I'm gonna feed myself and get out of my own way

Get out of my own way
Get out of my own way
Get out of my own way

So I start over
Re-rediscover
I submit to your, your sweet surrender
Your sweet surrender
Your sweet surrender
No

Chanel #6

The lyrics are probably some of her best ever. And the electro arrangement sounds so experimental and amazing. It's a shame a lot of people seem to hate it before giving it much of a chance. It's a masterpiece!

Diego Matamoros

Once I read that this song is the most underrated on the album🙈

Cimmerian

She collaborated on this song with Purity Ring who's music is very experimental and the lyrics deep and poetic. That's where the influence comes from here. Also, Katy toured with Purity Ring as her opening act.

Tulla

I agree. This is one of the tracks, album that I keep coming back to since it's release.

rock girl

@Wudgehe Hdheudheje it's not Katy's fault. I think it was Capitols who chose them. At least most of them.

Dalita Satan

@Inma maybe not for you, but it is for her. Listen to all of her older songs and tell me what song this reminds you of... right, bc she experimented with HER sound.

This album is actually amazing. Why did it get average reviews

The Night Ranger

I think it’s because critics thought it was more of a message album going in (the branding as Purposeful Pop, talking with activists, etc.) and they couldn’t get that idea out of their heads.

They didn’t like her new look. No one was used to her short blonde hair because her signature look is a long black hair

@Tyler Shapiro TRUE THAT
