Lyrics: Madmen Only

Try to cover up the mess you made with all that you can find.
But the problem is: you’re surrounded by yourself.
Take a worn-out pack of matches, a brand new silver dime,
And a dusty fifth of whiskey off the shelf.
You flip the coin, it sparkles as it tumbles through the air.
You catch it and hold it in dismay.
You tremble as you turn your hand to see what’s really there.
You take a swig, the coin has had its say.

You’ll soon 
Know just exactly who you are.

As you walk along the darkened streets the rain starts pouring down,
But you know the place it’s not very far.
Just a couple blocks on passed the church right outside of town,
And a left before your favorite local bar.
The letters they are glowing a little gold, a little red,
A voice it comes From right inside the wall:
“This place is not for everyone, are you sure you want to stay?”
You nod your head. The voice it comes again,

Saying: “You’ll soon 
Know just exactly who you are”

You take the match and whiskey and plan to burn the whole place down 
But as you step inside, open your eyes, and start to look around. 
People you thought did not exist speak to ones you thought were dead
You think you are a madman. You think you’ve lost your head
You thought it all was black and white and there were no shades of grey 
Thought only there was day and night and no dawn before the day  
You take a look at what you call your life and forget just what you have said 
You found there’s more than one way out and to take that way instead 

Cause you 
Know just exactly who you are
