Madness! That's All It Is

Madness!
That's all it is.
Sheer madness.
To accept and/or forgive.

But who benefits,
From tits for tats...
And those chats overhead to deceive?
To ignore and pretend...
What's overwhelming should be disbelieved.

It's all madness.
And more of it seems to come.
This madness.
No one is immuned,
From the madness done.

And those who wish to defend,
A sanity to protect...
Are left abandoned to leave,
A respect they keep in check.
To save themselves from the craze.
But where will they go to be saved.

It's all madness.
And more of it seems to come.
This madness.
No one is immuned,
From the madness done.

And those who wish to defend,
A sanity to protect...
Know it is in their best interest,
To get and do a fast step away...
From the madness.

No one is kept immuned,
From the madness.

Even if they lock up in their own padded rooms,
MADNESS...
Would still be there.
A madness...
Would still be shared,
In a madness...
Everywhere.
With people unaware that their minds are gone.
And people unconvinced there is something wrong.

Even if they lock up in their own padded rooms,
MADNESS...
Would still be there.
A madness...
Would still be shared,
In a madness...
Everywhere.
With people unaware that their minds are gone.
And people unconvinced there is something wrong.

Madness!
That's all it is.
Sheer madness.
To accept,
And/or forgive.

Even if they lock up in their own padded rooms,
MADNESS...
Would still be there.
A madness...
Would still be shared.
Even if they lock up in their own padded rooms,
MADNESS...
Would still be there.
A madness...
Would still be shared.
In a madness...
Everywhere.
With people unaware that their minds are gone.
And people unconvinced there is something wrong.

It's all madness.
That's all it is.
Sheer madness.
To accept,
And/or forgive.
With people unaware that their minds are gone.
And people unconvinced there is something wrong.
It's all madness!
That's all it is.
Sheer madness,
To accept and/or forgive.
It's all madness!
