      Insanity
      by
      Oingo Boingo

      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 tongue...

      My mind has wondered
      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

      All around the world now
      Like a big bright cherry cloud
      Traveling form 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 helllo...

      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 oiled machine
      Christian nation, assimilate me
      Take me in you arms and set me free
      I am part of a degenerate elite
      Dragging our society into the street
      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 then me
      Do you want to kill me or befriend me
      And the alcoholic waved his finger at me
      His voice was filled with evangelical glee

      Sipping down his gin & tonics
      While preaching about the evils of narcotics
      And the evils of sex
      And the wages of sin
      While he mentally fondles
      His next of kin
      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 (insanity)
      Let's strive for mediocrity (insanity)
      Let's make believe we're all the same (insanity)
      Let's sanitize our little brains (insanity)

      I 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 then 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 values
      While we sit and watch the sloughter
      Hypothetical abortions on imaginary daughters
      The white folks think they're at the top
      ask any proud white male
      A MILLION YEARS OF EVOLUTION
      WE GET DANNY QUAYLE!!!!

      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 your scream tonight
      I'd love to hear you cry
      Protect you from the madness that is raining from the sky

      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 your'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 the reach of time
      I'd love to see inside you mind
      to 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 shreads
      I'd love to mess your pretty hair
      I'd love to see you DEAD!!!!!!!!

        I am a proud lover of cheesy lyrics. The first thing that came to me was "Shimmer"

        She dreams a champagne dream
        Strawberry surprise, pink linen on white paper
        Lavender and cream, fields of butterflies
        Reality escapes her
        ~Fuel~

        Plus the majority of Phantom of the Opera, but I needn't go into that...

          There's gotta be something better than this
          There's gotta be something better to do
          And when I find me something better to do
          I'm gonna get up, I'm gonna get out,
          I'm gonna get up, get out, and do it!

            Yesterday a child came out to wonder
            Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
            Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
            And tearful at the falling of a star
            Then the child moved ten times round the seasons
            Skated over ten clear frozen streams
            Words like, when you're older, must appease him
            And promises of someday make his dreams
            And the seasons they go round and round
            And the painted ponies go up and down
            We're captive on the carousel of time
            We can't return we can only look behind
            From where we came
            And go round and round and round
            In the circle game.

            Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
            Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town
            And they tell him,
            Take your time, it won't be long now
            Till you drag your feet to slow the circles down
            And the seasons they go round and round
            And the painted ponies go up and down
            We're captive on the carousel of time
            We can't return we can only look behind
            From where we came
            And go round and round and round
            In the circle game

            So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
            Though his dreams have lost some grandeur
            coming true
            There'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
            Before the last revolving year is through.
            And the seasons they go round and round
            And the painted ponies go up and down
            We're captive on the carousel of time
            We can't return, we can only look behind
            From where we came
            And go round and round and round
            In the circle game

              My heart has wings,
              and I can fly.
              I'll touch every star in the sky.
              So this is the miracle
              that I've been dreaming of...
              So this is love...
              -So This is Love, Cinderella

              I had to post these lyrics because I love the commercial they've been showing with the dogs! So cute!! I love the song too
              Do you remember your imagination?
              When Neverland was your destination.
              Your magical adventure isn't over yet,
              Just hold on tight and don't forget...

                When I was very young
                Nothing really mattered to me
                But making myself happy
                I was the only one
                Now that I am grown
                Everything's changed
                I'll never be the same
                Because of you

                Looking at my life
                It's very clear to me
                I live so selfishly
                I was the only one
                I realize
                That nobody wins
                Something is ending
                And something begins

                Nothing takes the past away
                Like the future
                Nothing makes the darkness go
                Like the light
                You're shelter from the storm
                Give me comfort in your arms

                Nothing really matters
                Love is all we need
                Everything I give you
                All comes back to me

                    "If I never knew you
                    If I never felt this love
                    I would have no inkling of
                    how precious life can be

                    If I never held you
                    I would never have a clue
                    how at last I'd find in you
                    the missing part in me

                    In this world so full of fear
                    full of rage and lies
                    I can see the truth so clear in your eyes
                    so dry your eyes

                    And I'm so grateful to you
                    I'd have lived my whole life through
                    lost forever
                    if I never knew you"

                      I saw the musical "Avenue Q" for the first time about a year and half ago as I was in the beginning stages of leaving my partner of 6 years. Doesn't quite impact me the same way now, but when I think back on a song that really grabbed me emotionally... this one is it....



                      "There's a Fine, Fine Line"
                      Music and Lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx
                      from the musical "Avenue Q"


                      "There's a fine, fine line between a lover and a friend;
                      There's a fine, fine line between reality and pretend;
                      And you never know 'til you reach the top if it was worth the uphilll climb.

                      There's a fine, fine line between love and a waste of time.

                      There's a fine, fine line between a fairy tale and a lie;
                      And there's a fine, fine line between "you're wonderful" and "goodbye."
                      I guess if someone doesn't love you back it isn't such a crime,
                      But there's a a fine, fine line between love and a waste of your time.

                      And I don't have the time to waste on you anymore.
                      I don't think that you even know what you're looking for.
                      For my own sanity I have to close the door and walk away....
                      Oh....

                      There's a fine, fine line between together and not.
                      And there's a fine, fine line between what you wanted and what you got.
                      You gotta go after the things you want while you're still in your prime....

                      There's a fine, fine line between love and a waste of time."

                        Time after time we
                        Walk pass the window
                        But never see the ashes on the ground

                        Night after night
                        Watching the sky move
                        Never feel the earth spinning 'round

                        I didn't see you fallin'
                        I couldn't hear you callin'
                        Born with eyes wide open, never learned to see

                        I never meant to hurt you
                        Was right there crying with you
                        Why do we harm the only thing we want to be?

                        Trying to follow
                        Every footstep
                        I feel so lost along the way

                        Reading the scripture
                        Straight from the gospel
                        Never understanding what they say

                        I didn't see you fallin'
                        I never heard you' callin'
                        I've got my eyes wide open
                        but haven't learned to see
                        "The old man's gonna knock on the sky. Listen to the sound."

                        AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

                          You see there's always another dream around the bend
                          If I can't play for keeps, I guess I'll play pretend
                          Carry on 'til that next dream comes around the bend
                          Listenin' for the love song I can sing unto the end
                          As this old car careens,
                          headin' for those sweet dreams around the bend

                          You see it's one more night,
                          another shot might make things all right
                          Play one more song and I'll be feelin' fine
                          And I'm headin' for the back door, knowing I could have given so much more
                          Then someone whispers "Hey, you'll get 'em next time"
                          There's always next time.
                          See, there's always another dream around the bend...


                          "Around the Bend" by Tony Lucca
                          Good morning, son
                          In twenty years from now
                          Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                          And I can tell you 'bout today
                          And how I picked you up and everything changed
                          It was pain
                          Sunny days and rain
                          I knew you'd feel the same things...

                            I am going to college in the fall.. and dont know what i am going to do....
                            (I would sucks to be me.. but got yelled at before...)

                            Avenue Q....
                            What do you do with a B.A. in English,
                            What is my life going to be?
                            Four years of college and plenty of knowledge,
                            Have earned me this useless degree.

                            I can't pay the bills yet,
                            'Cause I have no skills yet,
                            The world is a big scary place.

                            But somehow I can't shake,
                            The feeling I might make,
                            A difference,
                            To the human race.

                                I look into the window of my mind
                                Reflections of the fears I know I've left behind
                                I step out of the ordinary
                                I can feel my soul ascending
                                I am on my way
                                Can't stop me now
                                And you can do the same

                                What have you done today to make you feel proud?
                                It's never too late to try
                                What have you done today to make you feel proud?
                                You could be so many people
                                If you make that break for freedom
                                What have you done today to make you feel proud?

                                Still so many answers I don't know
                                Realise that to question is how we grow
                                So I step out of the ordinary
                                I can feel my soul ascending
                                I am on my way
                                Can't stop me now
                                And you can do the same

                                What have you done today to make you feel proud?
                                It's never too late to try

                                What have you done today to make you feel proud?

                                We need a change
                                Do it today
                                I can feel my spirit rising
                                We need a change
                                So do it today
                                'Cause I can see a clear horizon

                                So what have you done today to make you feel proud?

                                BRINGING SOMETHING WE MUST LEARN
                                AND WE ARE LED
                                TO THOSE WHO HELP US MOST TO GROW

                                There's a time and place, for everything.
                                There's a reason why, certain people meet.
                                There's a destination, for everyone.
                                What's the explanation, when we're done?

                                All the summer nights spent wondering;
                                So many questions asked, but no one's answering.
                                Would it be okay if I left today?
                                Took my chances on what you said was wrong?

                                I'm jaded, stupid, and wreckless.
                                Not sorry, and I'll never regret.
                                These years spent, so faded and wreckless.
                                Not sorry, and I'll never regret these years.
                                I'll never regret these years.

                                Now here i sit, so far away.
                                Remembering all our memories.
                                Its times like these that I miss you most,
                                Remembering when we were so close.

                                I'm jaded, stupid, and wreckless.
                                Not sorry, we'll never regret.
                                These years spent, so faded and wreckless.
                                Not sorry, and I'll never regret these years.

                                We'll never forget the places we've been, you and i.
                                Our lives are slipping away.
                                Don't want to let time pass us by, by...

                                    Underneath the African sky
                                    A great heart to stand me by
                                    It's like i'm talking to a monkey, a really really big stupid monkey named Kronk.

                                        Thinking that its finally my turn
                                        like a fool believing every word
                                        You tell me that it's over
                                        But that's not what I heard
                                        'Cause the heart just never seems to learn.

                                          You've got to be taught before it's too late
                                          Before you are six, or seven or eight
                                          To hate all the people your relatives hate
                                          You've got to be carefully taught.
                                          -Rogers & Hammerstein, "You've Got to be Carefully Taught," from South Pacific


                                          For now we're healthy, for now we're employed.
                                          For now we're happy, if not overjoyed.
                                          And we'll accept the things we cannot avoid for now,
                                          But only for now.

                                          I don't get many things right the first time,
                                          in fact I am told that a lot.
                                          Now I know that the wrong turns,
                                          the stumbles and falls brought me here.
                                          And where was I before the day that I first saw your lovely face?
                                          Now I see it every day,
                                          And I know that I am the luckiest.
