"Madness In Me" as written by David Hall Hodges, John Cooper and Brian Howes....
The madness in me
The madness in me
The madness in me
The madness in me
The madness in me

Just once more is all it takes
I tried so hard but all goes up in flames
This is not the way that I thought
I would turn out to be
Tried to get but all that I got
Was more insanity
Broken everything that I touched
Just gone against me

I can’t get away

From the fire that burns inside, consuming
I fight to stand up but I can’t breathe
The voices scream, the enemy takes over everything
This is the madness in me

Madness in me
The madness in me
Madness in me
Madness in me

Just one chance is all it takes
Can’t change the past but I can fight to change today
This is not the way that I thought
I would turn out to be
Tried to get but all that I got
Was more insanity
Broken everything that I touched
Just gone against me

Got to get away

From the fire that burns inside, consuming
I fight to stand up but I can’t breathe
The voices scream, the enemy takes over everything
This is the madness in me

Madness in me
The madness in me
Madness in me
Just one spark it’s all it takes

From the fire that burns inside, consuming
I fight to stand up but I can’t breathe
The voices scream, the enemy takes over everything
This is the madness in me

From the fire that burns inside, consuming
I fight to stand up but I can’t breathe
The voices scream, the enemy takes over everything
This is the madness in me

The madness in me
This is the madness in me
The madness in me

    General CommentThis song resonates with me because it reminds me of life with dissociative identity disorder.

    "Just one spark is all it takes / I tried so hard but all goes up in flames"
    I can't always choose when I switch or what triggers me.

    "This is not the way that I thought / I would turn out to be"
    When I pictured myself as an adult, I distinctly pictured someone taller, more academically accomplished, and not hampered by a serious disorder.

    "Tried to get but all that I got / Was more insanity / Broken everything that I touched / Just gone against me"
    Trying to work with the alters and accomplish some healing, but often making things worse.

    "I can’t get away"
    That speaks for itself. Alters are never truly free from each other.

    "From the fire that burns inside, consuming"
    Unexplained feelings of anger.

    "I fight to stand up but I can’t breathe"
    Panic attacks.

    "The voices scream, the enemy takes over everything / This is the madness in me"
    My alters aren't my enemies, but the feeling of chaos and loss of control are still there.

    "Just one chance is all it takes / Can’t change the past but I can fight to change today"
    I honestly don't know what caused my condition, but I do my best to make it bearable for everyone.

    My InterpretationI used to listen to this song all the time when the album first came out.

    I sufered from major panic attacks back then. And this song really helped me understand what was going on inside me and knowing that I wasnt really the only person who went through this.
