Sanity Is Threatened To Succumb


Maybe today...
It's better off to be declared crazy.
And allow this to be done.
Maybe today...
It's better off to be declared crazy.
And allow this to be done.
Since sanity is threatened to succumb,
To nonsense.
Sanity is threatened to succumb,
To nonsense.
Since sanity is threatened to succumb,
To nonsense.
Sanity is threatened to succumb.

Maybe today...
It's better off to be declared crazy.
And allow this to be done.
Maybe today...
It's better off to be declared crazy.
And allow this to be done.
Since sanity is threatened to succumb,
To nonsense.
Sanity is threatened to succumb,
To nonsense.
Since sanity is threatened to succumb,
To nonsense.
Sanity is threatened to succumb.

Maybe today...
It's better off to be declared crazy.
Since sanity is threatened to succumb,
To nonsense.
Sanity is threatened to succumb,
To nonsense.
Since sanity is threatened to succumb,
To nonsense.
And everybody left with it is stunned

A sanity is threatened to succumb,
To nonsense.
Our sanity is threatened to succumb,
To nonsense.
All sanity is threatened to succumb,
To nonsense.
And anybody left with it runs.
