Deluded In My Mind - The Streets

Absolutely Dame Judi Dench

My condition is a delusion
Created to escape my brain
And Dave thinks Glaswegian police are superheroes
Which his brain may have created
When the railings rattle in a mad bit of Glasgow
The police make him feel safer
So his condition is a delusion
Based on fear it seems mainly but that's nothing like me

Deluded in my mind
I do good things but never lie
But sometimes our old minds can be the liars
And that's why it wasn't I

But Lydia is nothing like me
She's really unlucky in life, see
She's pranked to getting into a tight squeeze
She's broken 7 bones in her life, see

There's no condition of delusion
When it comes to Lydia at all
I thought I might be deluded cause her tale is
Ruddy unbelievable
A dislocated shoulder and a stolen car
And a whole story of more
Her condition is of no delusion
Lydia is real to the core but that's nothing like me either

Deluded in my mind
I do good things but never lie
But sometimes our old minds can be the liars
And that's why it wasn't I

Steve I think he might just be like me
I felt that his mind might be lying
Something about him didn't quite fit
This is why I really like Steve

Steve's opinion is a conclusion
That a road can curse its drivers
Which initially I figured was either stupid
Or at best his mind was mad
But how can I say it's stupid
When the thing about delusion is that
I wouldn't know I was mad
Steve's only condition is that it's my opinion he's deluded
But maybe I am

So there's no way to tell delusions
From the concrete given facts
Maybe the common consensus
Is actually just madness
Maybe the wacky madman
Is actually not mad
And maybe if i carry on chatting
You'll forget what I do bad

I'm deluded in my mind
I do good things but never lie
But sometimes our old minds can be the liars
And that's why it wasn't I

So..
Dave is nothing like me
Lydia is nothing like me
Steve is nothing like me

And Bigfoot, that's a different story...
