Insanity Lyrics - Oingo Boingo

Review The Song (3)



I'm so sorry, please forgive me
Who do I pray to to straighten out this problem?
Straighten out this problem, straighten out my mind.
Straighten out this crooked toungue...
My mind has wandered, from the straight and narrow.
My mind has wandered from the flock, you see?
My mind has wandered, the man just said so.
My mind has wandered, I heard it on TV.
And the flock has wandered away from me now.

-CHORUS-
All around the world now
Like a big bright cherry cloud
Traveling from home to home
TV sets and telephones
Here it comes just like a storm
Bathe in it and be reborn
sponsored links
Time to let the world know
Welcome madness say hello
Like a wave we cannot see
Washing over you and me
Hiding here and hiding there
Madness hiding everywhere
Such a curiosity
Here it comes to set us free
Plenty left for you and me
Say hello insanity

I am the virus, are you the cure?
I am morally, I'm morally impure
I am a disease and I am unclean
I am not part of God's well oiled machine
Christian nation, assimilate me
Take me in your arms and set me free
I am part of a degenerate elite
Dragging our society into the street yeah
Into the abyss and to the sewer don't you see
The man just told me, he told me on TV

Do you think you're better than me
Do you want to kill me or befriend me

And the alchoholic bastard waved his finger at me
And his voice was filled with evanglical glee now
Sipping down his gin and tonics
While preaching about the evils of narcotics
And the evils of sex, and the wages of sin
While he mental fondles his next of kin
Cause my mind has wandered from the flock you see
And the flock has wandered away from me
And he waved his hypnotizing finger at me

Let's imitate reality
Let's strive for mediocrity
Let's make believe we're all the same
Let's sanitize our little brains

I'd love to take you home with me and tuck you into bed
I'd love to see what makes you tick inside your pretty head
I'd love to hear you laugh tonight, I'd love to hear you weep
I'd love to listen to you while you're screaming in your sleep

Christian sons, christian daughters
Lead me along like a lamb to the slaughter
Purify my brain and hose down my soul
White perfection, perfection is my goal

Do you think you're better than me
Do you want to kill me or befriend me

Christian nation, make us alright
Put us through the filter and make us pure and white
My mind has wandered from the flock you see
And the flock has wandered away from me

Let's talk of family falues while we sit and watch the slaughter
Hypothetical abortions on imaginary daughters
The white folks think they're on the top ask any proud white male
A million years of evolution, we get Danny Quayle

-CHORUS-
All around the world now
Like a big bright cherry cloud
Traveling from home to home
TV sets and telephones
Here it comes just like a storm
Bathe in it and be reborn
Time to let the world know
Welcome madness say hello

I'd love to take you home with me, I'd love to tuck you in
I wish I could protect you from the wages of our sin
I'd love to hear you scream tonight, I'd love to hear you cry
Protect you from the madness that is raining from the sky

Let's imitate reality
Let's strive for mediocrity
Let's make believe we're all the same
Let's sanitize our little brains

I'd love to take you home with me and tuck you into bed
I'd love to see what makes you tick inside your pretty head
I wish that I could keep you in a precious Chinese box
On Sundays I would pray for you so it would never stop
I'd love to hear you laugh tonight, I'd love to hear you weep
I'd love to listen to you while you're screaming in your sleep
I'd love to soothe you with my voice and take your hand in mine
I'd love to take you past the stars and out of reach of time
I'd love to see inside your mind and tear it all apart
To cut you open with a knife and find your sacred heart
I'd love to take your satin dolls and tear them all to shreds
I'd love to mess your pretty hair, I'd love to see you dead.







I'm so sorry, please forgive me
Who do I pray to? to straighten out this problem?
Straighten out this problem, straighten out my mind.
Straighten out (this crooked toungue...)x3
My mind has wandered, from the straight and narrow.
My mind has wandered from the flock, you see?
My mind has wandered, the man just said so.
My mind has wandered, I heard it on TV.
And the flock has wandered away from me now.

Let's imitate reality (insanity)
Let's strive for mediocrity (insanity)
Let's make believe we're all the same (not destiny)
Let's sanitize our little brains (insanity)

I'd love to take you home with me and tuck you into bed

Sadly True | Reviewer: Ava | 2/28/2008

Danny Elfman has a rather funny habit of putting into words what a problem is, in the most controversial package he can manage. I admire his talent, his music and his more realisitc outlook that, while being rather scary in its package, is throughly true and apt to present day society.

I salute you Mr. Elfman



A Cause For Concern | Reviewer: Insanity | 12/28/2007

I'm a purist at heart but not in my mind this strikes me two ways, pulling me apart I hope for better tommrows, seeing this drives further into nillism. Yet to those who aren't aware theres a darkness in the midst I fear for future generations. Is there any love left? thats what you need to be asking yourself.



Danny at his best... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/28/2004

Mr. Elfman is certinly a wacko, but this song says it all about what is wrong with todays society. A Follow up with "Change" caps it off...
