"Mind Maze" is the title of a song by Katy Perry from her fifth studio album, Witness. The song was written by Katy Perry, Ali Payami, and Corin Roddick and Megan James of the electronic group, Purity Ring. It was played for the first time during an exclusive album listening party in Berlin, Germany.

Background

Perry explained the meaning of the song during the therapy session of Witness World Wide livestream:[1]

"Sometimes it's hard to navigate this world and I wonder if I just push the reset button and surrender to love and surrender to loving myself that like I would still be able to have all the things that I dream I could have as Katheryn Hudson and I knew it could be a delicate balance that even talks about that in the lyrics like spending all these plates is a delicate balance because it's a thousand of them."

Lyrics

I'm losing all direction
Slipping into quicksand
I've shattered the illusion
Seen behind the curtain
I'm disenchanted

Dancing on a wire
Juggling desire
Every hit gets harder
When you're fighting without armor
I'm disheartened
Do I start over
Rediscover
Submit to the sweet surrender

(Chorus)
It's a mind maze
All these head games
Caught in a complex cage
Am I a car on fire
Will I be devoured
I gotta free myself and get out of my own way

Used to be so sparkling
But now it's not so charming
What used to stimulate me
Now can barely wake me
I'm unresponsive

Will I find salvation
Some kind of moderation
Spinning all these plates is
Gonna be a challenge
A delicate balance

So do I start over
Rediscover
Submit to the sweet surrender

(Chorus)
It's a mind maze
All these head games
Caught in a complex cage
Am I a car on fire
Will I be devoured
I gotta free myself and get out of my own way

Get out of my own way
Get out of my own way
Get out of my own way

Do I start over
Rediscover
I submit to your, your sweet surrender
Your sweet surrender
Your sweet surrender
