  1. Caught Inside

‘Caught Inside’ is a surfing term. The literal meaning is when one is paddling through a set of waves that is breaking before them and they have no choice but to eat it. The song is a basic metaphor for being in the trappings of one’s own mind set with a sense of having no way out. It is also a question: do we unconsciously set ourselves up to fall to see if the Universe is watching and wants us to learn something?

Lyrics

Caught Inside
-Words and Music by John Zay

Guess I wanted to fall right down
Eyes that see
And I wanted to know somehow
Where I’d be
If you know, could you say?
Would you show me which way to go?
I don’t know
I’m losing control

Faded
Torn and Frayed so
Jaded
Sets and lulls

I am caught inside
Lost my window
Nowhere I can hide

I am caught inside
Flying solo
Is there any light?
I’ve lost my way back home

Even though you are gone right now
I can’t leave
Even though that I won somehow
I still grieve
In my heart, in my dreams
From the things that you said to me
No reprieve
Been lost at sea

Naked
Ripped and torn so
Faded
Down below

I am caught inside
Lost my window
Nowhere I can hide

I am caught inside
Flying solo
Is there any light?
I’ve lost my way back home
