"Crazy" as written by Orville Rorey Baker, W. Riley, M. Sterling and L. Roberts....
I climb the walls of my mind just like I'm climbing on a jungle gym
I am more than content with the state of mind I am in
'Cause I am crazy (crazy, crazy) just like you
I am crazy (crazy, crazy) just like you

I don't think I need a rubber room, but that might be nice
I'm not a manic depressive, paranoid or schizophrenic so I don't need your advice
'Cause I'm just crazy (crazy, crazy) just like you
I am crazy (crazy, crazy) just like you

The lights are on but nobody's home
My elevator doesn't go to the top
I'm not playing with a full deck
I've lost my marbles
The lights are on but nobody's home
My elevator doesn't go to the top
I'm not playing with a full deck
I've lost my marbles (oh, oh oh)

I'm a few bricks short of a load, but a full load always hurt my back
I flew over the cuckoo's nest and I'm never ever coming back
'Cause I am crazy (crazy, crazy) just like you
I am crazy (crazy, crazy) just like you
I am crazy (crazy, crazy) just like you
I am crazy (crazy)

    General CommentThis is the last song on the Gordon Album so they probably just went into a ramble during the second part.

    General CommentHow about it's about one band member knowing another band member struggles with depression, aka is described as "Crazy" and he uses all the stereotypes, all the stigma-inducing-crazymaking phrases that are out there to say, Hey - it's OK, cuz I'm crazy just like you.

    Steven Page has been open about his experiences with depression. I don't know if other band members have been - but combined with alot of the other lyrics (as obvious as Brian Wilson that describes depression and bipolar disorder), it almost feels like an 'I'm ok, you're ok' from one band mate who might not have the degree of difficulty of another but nevertheless can empathize in a big way.

    All those secret lyrics and gibberish? The illusion of mental illness, the inate wackiness and everyday-kinda of guys of the BNL. One guy has the language .... i.e. who use manic depressive anymore? Only those who don't know or ... (machiavellian chuckle ...) those whe try to rhyme!

    Did I just make you say 'Underwear?" (Don't worry, it's a lyric from them ... I'm not quite that wacky. Yet.)

    Oh man, they are BLAM.

    General CommentI think this song is saying "We're all crazy, different, and quirky to some degree, that just part of who we are and of being human." The speaker is "crazy" but so is the listener and it's nothing clinical (I'm not a manic depressive, paranoid or schizophrenic so I don't need your advice.) so it's something completely normal and natural. It's saying that this kind of crazy is just being different from others and that's completely fine.

    General CommentTitian: You're crazy ^^

    It's about comfort and respect of one's ways.
    Personally, their best meaningful "pick-you-up" song they have.
    The "SECRET BIT" as not so secret as being on their Gordon album is a bit funky and multi-interpretable.
    I'm not touching that wacko jacko bit with a 10-feet pole...
