"Mental" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
It's like I dressed up in my mamma's clothing
It's like I'm talking to a voice that doesn't exist
It's like I got a wire crossed upstairs
But all I want is just a little truth and that's it

They say I'm mental but I'm just confused
They say I'm mental but I've been abused
They say I'm mental 'cause I'm not amused by it all

Another anchorman is on the TV
He's got that far away and they can't look in his eyes
I turn the channel but nothing is changing
The only truth is that everything's a lie

They say I'm mental but I'm just confused
They say I'm mental but I've been abused
They say I'm mental 'cause I'm not amused by it all

There's truth in everything, there's truth in lies
With all this knowledge well I think I'm gonna be wise

They say I'm mental but I'm just confused
They say I'm mental but I've been abused
They say I'm mental 'cause I'm not amused by it all
Not at all
Not at all
Not at all
Not at all
Not at all
Not at all
Not at all

    General CommentReminds of way back when I was really depressed and very cynical. When you reach the state of mind where everything seems to be a lie and you're simply not "amused by it all". Then again it might be because that's when I first heard the song. *shrug*

    General Commentits about not knowing the truths of life and being deprived of these meanings. he is being really sarcastic and ironic when he says 'with all this knowledge i think im gonna be wise'
