"Madness" as written by Lauri Johannes Yloenen, Pauli Esko Antero Rantasalmi, Eero Aleksi Heinonen, Aki-markus Hakala and Michael Blair....
Too much, too fast maybe.
I don't know where my destiny's taking me.
I'll go where ever it leads me.
Too high, too low baby.
I want know where my destiny's taking me.
So I'll go to make you believe me.

Cry, cry when there's something to cry about.
Cry, cry baby, don't drown in the sadness.

It's madness.
Don't ask me to explain. Don't take away the pain.
It's impossible to save me.
So come on!

Too cheap, too scary.
Too creepy to marry.
Too serious and too mysterious and way to, way too deep.
Cry, cry when there's something to cry about.
Cry, cry baby, don't drown in the sadness.

It's madness.
Don't ask me to explain. Don't take away the pain.
It's impossible to save me.
It's madness.
So easy to complain. Nobody left to blame.
It's impossible to save me.

Crack in the shield. It feels so unreal.
No one to blame for loosing the flame.
Crack in the shield, lost in the fields of sadness.

It's madness...

It's madness.
Don't ask me to explain. Don't take away the pain.
It's impossible to save me.
Save me from madness
Oh its madness
Know that its madness
Wake up its madness
So come on!

    General CommentI can't believe nobody's commented on this song! I think some of the lyrics are missing, though... The chorus is awesome! The chorus and verses seem so different, though. I think the verses are talking about trying to find who or what is right for you...and then you get sad when you can't find that person. So they say cry when there's something to cry about, but this isn't it. The line "don't take away the pain" is really powerful because it makes you realize that you have to live through the pain to be stronger. And I don't think the "it's impossible to save me" is depressing...instead, I think it means "nothing's wrong with me...so don't try to fix me!"

    General CommentUgh! Its those "baby"s in this song that keep throwing me off from the meaning. Everytime he says "baby" it means he's talking to someone. Not about someone, nor is he generally speaking to the audience/readers. That's my input. This is a tough one for me to interpret. It does seem like the stanzas are everywhere. "Too cheap, too scary. Too creepy to marry." Its like he's describing women he finds himself with or describing himself. The meaning could be very simple. I might just be reading far too much into the "baby"s.

    General Commentwhat i think he is trying to say is that sadness will always be there no matter what and there is no use trying to get rid of it forcefully just let it come and what happens happens dont take life so sereously dont dwell on the future dont dwell on the past just focus on the here and now.

    Song MeaningI think Lauri once said that somewhere in this song, The Rasmus' ex-drummer Janne came into the question. "No-one to blame for losing the flame" - Janne lost his passion for the music and the band.
