Lyrics:

Yeah I get it you’re an outcast
Always under attack
Always coming in last
Bringing up the past
No one owes you anything
I think you need a shotgun blast
A kick in the ass
So paranoid
Watch your back!

Oh my here we go
Another loose cannon gone bi-polar
Slipped down couldn’t get much lower
Quicksand’s got no sense of humor
I’m still laughing like hell

You think that by crying to me
Feeling so sorry
That I’m gonna believe
You’ve been a affected by a social disease
Well then take your medicine

CHORUS
I crated the sound of madness
Wrote the book on pain
Somehow I’m still here to explain
That the darkest hour never comes in the night
You sleep with a gun
But when you gonna wake up and fight
For yourself

I’m so sick of this tombstone mentality
If there’s an afterlife, then it’ll set you free
But I’m not gonna part the seas
You’re a self fulfilling prophecy

You think that by crying to me
Feeling so sorry
That I’m gonna believe
You’ve been a affected by a social disease
Well then take your medicine

CHORUS
When you gonna wake up and fight
For yourself

Genius lyrics, absolute simplicity of optimism is becoming an oxymoron for too many young people, soooo sad. This song hit me like a comet - it SHOULD be a theme for required learning in Middle school. Life is not that hard (unless you make it that way) for most people Western civilization has become sooo spoiled. There IS so much beauty and amazing miracles all around us, lighten up, or maybe, light up? Get off the synthetic drugs....nature is a part of you, nuture it and yourself...

Hey there, was looking over the lyrics on SOM & noticed this word in this line and wondered if it was a typo? (I "crated" the sound of madness)
Thanks for your time!
