the psychotic dress the senseless feature
it terrifies every living creature
predictability is wearing thin
groundbreaking practice for the preacher

clowns mortified by my expression
breathing new life into invention
and gagging the maggots with a weary hand
has failed to leave any impression

the shock and terror keeps me sane
the shock and terror keeps me sane
does anybody feel the same?
the shock and terror keeps me sane

up now for seven days and wired
the concept of sleep is way too tired
and i've dialed in a plan to reinstate
your sense of humor has expired

the shock and terror keeps me sane
the shock and terror keeps me sane
does anybody feel the same?
the shock and terror keeps me sane

    General Commentthis song is about why they do all the crazy shit they do, and also about the whole heavy metal scene and all the crazy "satanic" shit they do, and doing speed.

    General CommentI cant believe knowone has hardly spoke bout this song its easily in da top 5 cky songs. Its about how people crave for the need to be shocked in some way this may be media related e.g. 9/11 but not directly, people need a change people are tired with there boring lives there fucked up boring routine every fuckin day, people need shocking in order to stay sane and to not go mad cos there bored basically

    General CommentYeah, I think parabola's hit the nail on the head with this song. Does anyone else hear like a cell phone ringing at around the 2:57 mark of this track? Listen very closely at around 2:57-3:00. Maybe I'm hearing things, though...
