"Perfect Insanity" as written by and David/donegan Draiman....
Come inside and be afraid,
Of this impressive mess I’ve made
If you take a look now you will find
I have thrown away my vice
Done away with paradise
See what’s going on inside my mind

Please let me out...
Please let me out...
Please let me...

Branded like an animal
I can still feel the burn in my mind
I do believe that you’ve made your message clear

Deprivating, isolating, all that I feel,
Leaving me with images I know are not real.
Are those words of condemnation that I hear?
I think I'm losing my mind, I think I'm losing my...

Come inside now I implore
Do you think you can restore,
The crucial pieces missing from my brain?
What seems to be the matter dear?
Why do you cry and shake with fear?
I’ve only had the best of me insane

Please let me out...
Please let me out...
Please let me...

Branded like an animal
I can still feel the burn in my mind
I do believe that you’ve made your message clear
I think I'm losing my mind, I think I'm losing my mind

Deprivating, isolating, all that I feel,
Leaving me with images I know are not real,
Are those words of condemnation that I hear?
I think I'm losing my mind, I think I'm losing my...

I don't know how much I can take
The secret thoughts inside me wake
I’ve lost what was within me
Oh sweet insanity...(x2)

Now I try again to find
The thing that was my mind!
Behold the other side!
Who said I've lost my mind (x2)

I've lost my mind! (x8)
I've lost!
Mind
I've lost my mind! (x8)

    General CommentI could be completely wrong here, but I was almost sure that it was "I've only had the best of being sane".

    "I've only had the best of me insane" just doesn't make any grammatical sense. Could someone please clarify this for me?

    General CommentI'll clarify before people start swarming this page with questions: This song was first included on Disturbed's "M.O.L." DVD back in 2002, thought it wasn't officially released. Now it has been reworked with a few new lyrics and will be included on their upcoming album, "Indestructible."

    General CommentLyrics Correction. "Never been enough to really know that I feel"

    He actually says "Depreviating, Isolating, all that I feel."

    It sounds nothing like Never been enough to really know that I feel..
