Oh sweet insanity
You take my hand and walk me out into the dark
We walk this road for hours and hours
To the white hills, and the oceans

On a collision course, to hell we march
We're doomed to this now
Oh the irony
If I'm going down I won't go down alone
You're doomed to this one
You're doomed to this now
Hold your breath my dear
We're going under

I've walk this road for hours
To the white hills, and the oceans
I search for solace in this toxic land of sin
Just let me in
Don't wake me up, their songs are soothing
Their wine subdues me
Hold your breath my dear
We're going under

Dreams, my mind won't lift me from my dreams
And though I try I can't escape my mind
Dreams, my mind won't lift me from my dreams
And though you try you can't escape me

Now you've seen what I've become
Now you've seen what I can do
Now you've seen what I'm capable of

I've walk this road for hours to the white hills, and the oceans
I search for solace in this toxic land of sin
Just let me in
Don't wake me up, their songs are soothing
Their wine subdues me

Welcome to the diary of a man that lost his mind so long ago
welcome to the shell of a man with a heart so black and cold

Over and over in my head

    General CommentI personally think it's about how he is a different man/insane man when he is drinking or on drugs...kinda like the rest of the album, and how it's hard for him to get back from those ways "Don't wake me up, their songs are soothing, Their wine subdues me"

    General CommentIf you have watched the music videos, then you will get it. But let me explain. This song is in 3 parts. Reckless and Relentless, To the Stage, and Dear Insanity. Reckless and Relentless is pretty much about how drinking is tearing their carrier apart, To The Stage is about Danny picking up some girl and having sex with her. The girl ends up giving him some drug/poisen and ends up 'killing him'. At the end of the video, Ben finds him in a room with his eyes open, and his mouth foaming. He wasnt responding to anything. Dear Insanity, Danny is put in an ambulance truck, and ben gets a call from his tour manager saying that they are an hour late for their show, and that the stage is empty ect. Doctors are trying to revive Danny, and Ben ends up stabbing him with a needle with some drug that brings him back to life. Memories come back to Danny about the previous night, and he regrets what he did. The band takes Danny from the ambulance to the stage. Still recovering from what happened, the rest of the band tries to give him alcohol and girls are trying to flirt with him on the way to the stage. He denies all this because of what happened to him, which was the right choice in the first place. Reliazation is right. Its pretty much about him trying to become sober and direct himself from those ways, so his carrier wont wither away.
