Maybe I'm insane
Walking on a wire
Maybe I'm the same
Nothing to take me higher
Tell me where to start
Think I'm at the end
Right now, feeling pain
Make it go away

Maybe I'm to blame
Maybe I'm a liar
Maybe we're the same
Nothing can stop the fire
I can't feel my heart
But I feel the shame
Nothing left to say
Soon I'll fade away

These places,
All I ever think about is lost in time
These faces haunting me
I'm looking back and they are mine

I'm hiding from the things they say
Doing time and lead astray
Thinking back to times of yesterday
I could fly
I'm trying to find a better way
But I'm trapped, can't get away
All I think is about yesterday
I could fly

Maybe I'm insane
Walking on a wire
Maybe I'm the same
Nothing to take me higher
I can't feel my heart
But I feel the shame
Nothing left to say
Soon I'll fade away

These places,
All I ever think about is lost in time
These faces haunting me
I'm looking back and they are mine

I'm hiding from the things they say
Doing time and lead astray
Thinking back to times of yesterday
I could fly
I'm trying to find a better way
But I'm trapped, can't get away
All I think is about yesterday
I could fly
I'm hiding from the things they say
Doing time and lead astray
Thinking back to times of yesterday
I could fly
I'm trying to find a better way
But I'm trapped, can't get away
All I think is about yesterday
I could fly

    General CommentIn my opinion, I didn't think Follow the Leader was that great. It would have to be Korn or Life is Peachy

    General CommentI think there is another way to understand it... Schizophrenia. Like when he says about the faces and the are his, and how he can't get away from the voices.

    General Commentthis song to me is about insanity. It's about crossing he line inbetween the two worlds almost, cause insanity is another world.
    but again, the chorus is strangely optimisitic 'i'm trying to find a better way, but i'm trapped cant get away, all i think is about ysterday, i could fly." this is one of the few times that Jon sounds like he wants to be in a better position in his life. ANother influential song.

    General CommentI agree with Anfer'ss interp on the song only, I think Follow The Leader was good but I can barely use any of it to let out aggresion/anger.

    General CommentNot a lot of people seem to get the feeling behind this song... I'm not really angry ever... Just very depressed... Life is hell and if it wasn't for the real hell I would end it now... But anyway Love this song, reminds me of Kodou, by dir en grey... That song gets me a lot... It has a lot of feeling in it.

    General CommentThis probably isn't right but to me this is a song about trying to get away from reality, trying to escape it to a place where you can truly be happy.
    What makes me think that is this part of the song:
    I'm trying to find a better way
    But I'm trapped, can't get away
    All I think is about yesterday
    I could fly

    To me that's really saying that they [the person] sometimes looks back on times/memories that were better than the situation that they are in now and they just want to escape from it because it isn't enough to make them want to live. The words Maybe I'm insane
    Walking on a wire
    Maybe I'm the same
    Nothing to take me higher
    say to me that they're on the edge but maybe theyre the same as other people because they have nothing to make them happier.
    Well that's what it means to me anyway. Call me an idiot all you like but the meaning will be different to everyone. =]
