"Insane" as written by Alexandra Amelia Ward and Harley Edward Streten....
Everyone around you suffocates, think I don't believe in God
Every little pill that helps you think, makes my mind a social fault
I can take a million fucking freaks, blow 'em up and make you pay
All the plastic clowns have taken me, to the moon that wasn't grey
I have gone insane and I'm the one to blame
There's no one left but me and I'm not here
All the plastic people live for me, but their hearts were made for doom
Everyone around thinks I'm insane, but the path I chose was sore
I can take a million fucking freaks, blow 'em up and make you pay
All the plastic clowns have taken me, to the moon that wasn't grey
Can you give back to God what brought you here
Everyone around you suffocates, think I don't believe in God
Everyone around you thinks I'm insane, but the drugs have made me grey

    General CommentNow that I re-read and re-heard the song, if you think about it, he's actually, kinda, somewhat "thanking" the drugs for his position.

    "everyone suffocates", meaning everybody does it.

    "can you give back to God what brought you here?", which means, how can you make it up to God for doing all this b.s.?

    "all the plastic people live for me, but their hearts were made for doom" - meaning that this whole thing isn't worth it, because all these people, the "drug-buddies", really don't care about you.

    Antisocialism may be part of the meaning, but I forgot to mention the drugs.

    General Commentdrugs and insanity is the meaning of this song
    I deciphered some of the line
    as being an anti- socialism
    drugs on the other part
    makes you really insane
    sometimes you see death
    as a refuge when all of these
    sick bastards awful people
    are bringing us down

    General CommentI'm not to sure what it's about. Antisocial sounds good enough for me. I just know this is by far my favorite Cold song. It's so full of feeling.

    General CommentYou think it has to do with war and why he wouldn't believe in God? Or on how the view of others how they judge him and think that he doesn't?
