"Back At The Funny Farm" as written by Ian Kilmister, Brian Robertson and Philip John Taylor....
Hammer pounding in my heart, I think it's gonna burst,
Spring unwinding in my head, I don't know which is worse,
I hear you talking but the words are kinda strange,
One of us is crazy and the other one's insane

Stay calm, don't be alarmed, it's just a holiday,
Back at the funny farm

Nothing in this cold white room to help me recognize,
I don't understand why everyone is in disguise,
I gotta leave right now, I can't stay here no more,
But I'm afraid to try in case they lock the door

Can't find no windows but I gotta get outside,
Can you help me stand it feels like both my legs have died,
What was that injection 'cos I think it's going wrong,
I really like this jacket but the sleeves are much too long

    General CommentThe song is about a guy in a mental institution. " One of us is crazy and the other on's insane" indicates he may be schizophrenic. he also states, that someone has locked the door on his cold white room. In the final verse he seems to be sadated so he can't move his legs and being put into a straight jacket (" really like this jacket but the sleeves are much too long")

    General CommentIt's about the psychosis of a speed binge, the paranoia and hearing voices
