 Common Strange  

From the corner of my ear
I hear laughing and talking 
Feels a little weird  
as I pass by walking 
But my baggage doesn't show 
so I'm safe, I am ignored 
though you never really know 
when you're living by that sword 

too common to be strange 
too strange to be the norm 
when the target's out of range 
and it keeps changing form 

now and then you recognize 
the strangeness in another's eyes 
there is a comfort in the commonness 
but it's not the same  
as feeling blessed 
too common to be strange 
too strange to be the norm 
but there's no one to blame 
it's just living in the storm
