Alec Benjamin is een singer-songwriter out Phoenix, Arizona en al sinds 2013 brengt hij nummers uit. Hij noemt Eminem als een van zijn belangrijkste inspiratiebronnen en The Eminem Show was het eerste album dat hij van zijn eigen geld kocht. In 2014 is Paper Crown zijn eerste release bij een groot platenlabel. Ondanks dat er verschillende nummers volgen duurt het tot 2018 tot zijn populariteit groeit. Dat gebeurt met de release van zijn album Narrated For You. Van dat album weet hij via Let Me Down Slowly succes te scoren in de Scandinavische hitlijsten. Begin 2019 verschijnt er van die track ook een tweede versie waarop Alessia Cara te horen is.

Songtekst

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'll call them my eyes
I'm just going where the wind blows
I don't get to decide

Sometimes I think too much
Ya, 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 till they found me
And they put me back in my cell
All by myself, alone with my thoughts again
I 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 too much
Ya, 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 till they found me
And they put me back in my cell
All by myself, alone with my thoughts again
I 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 till they found me
And they put me back in my cell
All by myself, alone with my thoughts again
I guess my mind is a prison
And I'm never gonna get out
