[Intro x2]
“Drives me so insane, drives me so insane
Always drives me so, drives me so insane”


This song is a thank you for the time waste, for the laps that you added on to my race
For the chores that you gave me more helping yourself to create a pile-up on to my plate

For prioritizing your needs over mine wait, to slow the growth of my mindstate
That’s life, when you think you gotta get it right, then ignite, fight put a spike in the crime rate

When being right is what’s wrong, I’ve lived this life for too long
Strange enough, gotta change it up, it’s time for me to move on

Can it be, the meetings for planning the plan to meet are just vanity
Candidly, it’d be better if we could just cancel these, ‘cause they make me want to drink anti-freeze

And spew profanity, making me intolerable to all my huge family
More of that insanity exploring every channel please deplorably a little bit mechanically with

Everybody panicking, manic from the pandering, ruining the truth in the way we view humanity
Breathless and killing and tempting and thrilling and ready and willing 'til I lose my sanity

Choosing for wellness, it’s so confusing, proving my mental health it’s so alluding
Removing the options from humans just rotten gotta talk us off the ledge from the edge of consuming

Somewhere in there’s the terror of health care wrapped inside an insurance quote
Entangled you with burn-out, strangled just to watch your endurance choke

Urine soaked brick top sidewalks piled off with life locked homeless motionless
Like striked off in white chalk that you wanna just wipe off

This unrealistic sadistic complicit has twisted experience into statistics
Not long 'til I’m gone and won’t say that I miss it in making decisions to pray for forgiveness

Scraping by, chasing another day 8 to 5, while I fake alive
Had to get this car just to get me to my job making payments for the car just to make this drive

Living addiction this way of life, if I gotta run it back then I’ll say it twice
Society’s a debt to claim with a price to pay so I pay the price

[Chorus – repeat to fade]
“Drives me so insane, drives me so insane
Always drives me so, drives me so insane”
