The Lyrics

The plot of the song is a little hard to follow: About a guy who is released from the funny farm after being pronounced legally insane. He gets his 15 minutes of fame, someone dies in the same asylum and he loses all the fame and popularity he had. but, he was still not insane after that.
You took a trip
Down to the farm
The funny farm is where you were held
And there you stayed
Till someone came
You were not insane after that
You quit your life
Of grief and strife
And after your jacket came off
You came down
You looked around
You were not insane after that
(Ahh) You were not insane after that
(Ahh) You were not insane after that

You see I'm tryin' real hard not too look in your eyes
Everytime that I do I can see your disguise
You got one good trick and your hanging on your sanity
Tonight

You took the word
It was absurd
To think that medication could help
You were idolized
Immortalized
You succeeded without self-help
Walking tall
You'd done it all
You were not insane after that
Till someone tried
The same thing and died
You were not insane after that

You see I'm tryin' real hard not too look in your eyes
Everytime that I do I can see your disguise
You got one good trick and your hanging on your sanity
Tonight

(Oooh) You were not the same!*
(Oooh)

You see I'm tryin' real hard not too look in your eyes
Everytime that I do I can see your disguise
You got one good trick and your hanging on your sanity
Tonight

Your hanging on...
Your hanging on...
