What is crazy? It doesn't show up in the DSM
Yet I fear it and believe it, cause I was once called it by them
But what does it mean, if I'm as crazy as it seems
Or worse yet, if I'm as normal as can be
If you want to know what
Then you've gotta know why
Cause what you label crazy may be madness in disguise
So who is it that decides?
Cause supposedly I'm crazy, though I can also tell you why
But why the f*ck would I do that, when it's so much safer to lie
Your stories and accusations, they're all whats without whys
Like the existence of a hell, they represent lies
If I'm talking about my wonders or trying to walk on water
Why don't you just call me an ass hole instead of calling a doctor
Without knowing why someone does what
You're left with assumptions, not data, which are ideas not facts
You've ruined the word crazy, and stamped it on my back
You cast a spell on me that's influenced the way I live and act
My actions might have seemed sudden or maybe suspicious
To observe from the outside what happened so quickly
But was anyone there to see me try
Or did anyone ever ask me why
Or did they just judge from what they could see
And make up the rest inside for me
If I'm talking to myself, why the f*ck would you be scared
It just means that I'm conversing, peacefully, please pretend that I'm not there
If I'm sitting on the ground, I could be left alone
There's nothing crazy about sitting my ground
Though it may be dumb to choose when I have something to lose
Though would it make a difference if I sat alone, or was surrounded by a sizeable crew
Would your judgment change, or would you assume I must be sane just cause we're a few
Sitting or standing alone, or tinkering with electronics in the unknown
Experimenting in hiding, or protesting on stage
I don't see anything crazy 'till your decision's made
You call crazy what you can't explain
And assume its cause I've got some kinda fucked up brain
I could tell you why I act the way I do
It's cause of you, I think we've all been fucked up too
I may believe in dinosaurs, time travel, and aliens
Beliefs are what inspire, give hope, and drive our actions
I believe anything is possible that cannot be proven not
Though that's a double negative, the belief is on the spot
Hardly crazy, though I cannot blame your doubts
If I claimed to go to the 60's, have met ET, and rode a brontosaurus back to the now
Is my imagination a defect or a broken circuitry?
It doesn't seem like I'm broken if I'm still living, can't you see?
But maybe crazy, maybe crazy
Maybe I rode a dirt bike home when I was stuck without a ride
Or paid a friendly cab driver too much for his time
Or believed I could change the world by acting out of line
I haven't lost my mind, please just ask me why
Though depending who you are, I might just have to lie
It must have been too crazy, it must have been my choice
To wake up in a four-point restraint, alone, without a voice
I'd say that shit's crazy too, cause even you don't know why
You do this shit to people and make them want to die
Sorry for the grimness and anger to my tone
These thoughts are just ideas, they can do no harm alone
Yet I've had ideas and ambitions, and a hard to stop drive
That have been called crazy, got me locked up, without a crime
Is that crazy? Or am I?
I've tried to find a diagnostic or a theory for what's inside
But since no one's asked, why, why, why
I can't tell if I'm crazy or if that's just a lie
I struggle to trust myself when every single action
Goes through a filter, Is this crazy or not? I'm always fucking asking
It slows me down, though at times I've lifted the crown
To see past what's been lacking, self-doubt and confidence, my entities attacking
The reality seems, that I'm still here to scream
If I were crazy, I would have already drowned in
A river of randomness, not explainable action
So check your sources for who said crazy
And ask them why they're asking
