Das Album “Death of an Optimist” von Grandson hat einige schöne Stücke zu bieten. Das Schöne an seinen Liedern ist, dass diese mehr oder weniger kleine Geschichten erzählen. Erst kürzlich habe ich mit euch Musikvideo und Lyrics von “Dirty” geteilt, in dem es um das Ringen mit sich selbst und den eigenen verschiedenen Persönlichkeiten geht. “In Over My Head” beschreibt in Kurzfassung Grandsons (mit bürgerlichem Namen Jordan Edward Benjamin) Gefühl anders zu sein, als er aufgewachsen ist.

LYRICS

When I was nine I’d make believe
The good guy always caught the thief
The room went dark and I couldn’t sleep
I was in over my head
At 15 I would look around
And all my friends had it figured out
They all thought it but they never said out loud
I was in over my head

Oh I feel this vertigo
Sick of being an optimist
I’m trying, I’m trying

But I’m in over my head
I’m in over my head
Ohhh x2
Woo!

Cuz I’m in over my head!

I thought I’d make change happen overnight
I was 20 thought I had a good hold on life
Didn’t know it at the time I was not alright
I was in over my head
Now I’m pretty sure at 26
That it isn’t gonna be some little fix
The game wasn’t rigged by accident
I’m in over my head

Oh I feel this vertigo
Sick of being an optimist
I’m trying, I’m trying
Deep down it hurts to know
How bad I wanna call it quits
I’m trying, I’m trying

But I’m in over my head
I’m in over my head
Ohhh x2
Woo!

Cuz I’m in over my head!
Woo!!!
Yeah yeah yeah…
Cuz I’m in over my head

Oh I feel this vertigo
Sick of being an optimist
I’m trying, I’m trying
Deep down it hurts to know
How bad I wanna call it quits
I’m trying, I’m trying
But I..

I can’t hear myself though.
I CAN’T HEAR MYSELF THOUGH.
I CAN’T HEAR SHIT!
It’s cuz my headphones aren’t plugged in!
I’ll do it live!
Waaaaaooooooo

Cuz I’m in over my head!
Woo!
