I wage war
That's never been seen before
Is sanity worth fighting for?
I'm not really sure
I call it individuality!
Who is Society
To create this hypocrisy?!?
It seems like such a tragedy
To waste such ingenuity
To dull the creativity
I wake as your friend You wake as my lover
I speak as your lover You speak as my friend
I act as your possession You are my possesion
I rebel as your cover A means to an end
I hurt for your compassion You live for my acceptance
I injure for your respect Though it's never been withheld
I confide for your emotion You crave my direction
I give and you collect Never will you rebel
This is madness This is Sparta
This is insanity This is the price of exellence
I can't be everything for you I am your everything
You can't be everything for me I am magnificence
You treat everyone the same I am fair and righteous
As a friend, yet as a lover And yet you seek more
And it's a cruel, cruel game Dare you grow capricious
From your twisted love, no one recovers You'll become one I abhor
I am done You are confused
(I am never done) And I will not calm you
I am sick As I am amused
(But I'm not tired) As I drop little clues
I will run You'll never leave me
(I won't run) But I'll abandon you
Because I love you You'll always need me
(A better word is 'desire') And I'll never need you
Let me go! My grip is vice-like
(But you're not holding me) I'm not ready to let you go
Bring me back! If I lose you, 'my dear'
(But I never left) I must find yet another 'beau'
Love me only! And I've not the time to put effort
(But you love equally) In little minions like you
Push me away! I've not a care to give for
(Or bridge this rift) You insects I never knew
Please, disappear I am your torture
One day you'll understand But I am your salvation
That the twisted way you love I am your executioner
Could coax death from any human And I am your redemption
Please, disappear! You'll wish me dead forever
Though I'll weep when you're gone You'll wish me dead I know
I know sanity will return And you'll wish yourself deader
And I'll eventually move on. When away I finally go
with hearts and flowers
but, then took a sinister twist
his cruelty knew no bounds
as he chipped away
at her self-confidence
insidiously planting seeds of doubt
she lost sense of self
destroying her sanity
while she slowly faded away

The hospital lights flicker across the street
The room is foggy but if I close my eyes I can feel you here with me
I try to stay awake because reality has become my dream
It took me years to realize things are what they seem
Put your face close to mine and I'll help you see
This worlds insanity
I DONT THINK I CAN GO ANOTHER DAY WITHOUT YOUR VOICE AND YOUR SMILE AND THAT TWINKLE IN YOUR EYE. YOUR ARMS WERE HOME AND IM SO FUCKING HOMESICK AND I STILL LOVE YOU I THINK. EVERYTHING YOU SAID TO ME LINGERS IN MY THOUGHTS EVERY MORNING AND EVERY NIGHT AND OH GOD I JUST HOPE ILL BE ALRIGHT.
and I know
I said I’d be better
and I would
and I have no
to catch the
I don’t have
to tend to the cuts
on my hands
of my broken
losing pieces of
I’m so scared;
nothing makes sense
and I don’t even
want to be here
tattooed across my hand
it's a reminder.
now you're probably thinking,
"a reminder to what?"
you probably think it's something common like,
"INSANITY to remind you to be insane."
the profound few might think,
"INSANITY as a reminder that everyone else is insane."
really INSANITY's a reminder of the fact that
everyone else might be crazy,
and that's even worse.
everyone else might be insane.
you'll never really know.
but the insane ones are the ones
that can trick you,
and damage you,
and break you,
but you never notice until
it's too late.
You see, darling,
I've been tricked,
and so unbelievably, damaged.
That I need the reminder,
tattooed across my hand,
to remind me
and I have good reasons
to be paranoid.
Trust no body.
Everybody's up to something.
They speak silently
on troubled nights
whispering through the crowds
nothing else can be heard
through blaring deafness
in the loneliness of your mind
Remembering each word
and speaking up for all to hear
because you will reply to them
you will reply
