American singer and songwriter Alec Benjamin is growing and you can see it in his new single “Mind is a prison”.
The track, written by Alec himself, is a personal emotional song where the “Let me down slowly” hitmaker sings about being stuck in his head with his thoughts.
“This song is just about how I overthink everything. Especially all this new music and all these new decisions that I’ve had to make” said the platinum-certified artist. “I think a lot and sometimes I feel like I’m stuck inside my head. People are like, “don’t overthink it, just go with it,” but sometimes I feel like I don’t have the option to get out! So that’s what the song is about — feeling like you’re trapped inside your own mind. You can be your own worst enemy”.
“Mind is a prison” follows the singles “Jesus in LA” and “Must have been the wind”.

Lyrics:

I don’t live in California, I’ll inform you, that’s not where I reside
I’m just a tenant, paying rent inside this body and I
Got two windows, and those windows, well, I call them my eyes
I’m just going where the wind blows, I don’t get to decide

Sometimes, I think too much, yeah, I get so caught up
I’m always stuck in my head
I wish I could escape, I tried to yesterday
Took all the sheets off my bed

Then I tied up my linen with five strips of ribbon I found
Scaled the side of the building, I ran to the hills ’til they found me
And they put me back in my cell, all by myself
Alone with my thoughts again
Guess my mind is a prison and I’m never gonna get out

So they tranquilized me, analyzed me, threw me back in my cage
Then they tied me to an IV, told me I was insane
I’m a prisoner, a visitor inside of my brain
And no matter what I do, they try to keep me in chains

Sometimes, I think to much, yeah, I get so caught up
I’m always stuck in my head
I wish I could escape, I tried to yesterday
Took all the sheets off my bed

Then I tied up my linen with five strips of ribbon I found
Scaled the side of the building, I ran to the hills ’til they found me
And they put me back in my cell, all by myself
Alone with my thoughts again
Guess my mind is a prison and I’m never gonna get out

Said even if it’s true, no matter what I do
I’m never gonna escape
I won’t give up on hope, secure another rope
And try for another day
Said even if it’s true, no matter what I do
I’m never gonna escape
I won’t give up on hope, secure another rope
And try for another day

Then I tied up my linen with five strips of ribbon I found
Scaled the side of the building, I ran to the hills ’til they found me
And they put me back in my cell, all by myself
Alone with my thoughts again
Guess my mind is a prison and I’m never gonna get out
