"Die Laughing" as written by Andrew Cairns, Fyfe Ewing and Michael Robert Mckeegan....
Gimme something to breath
Give me a reason to live
Close your eyes and see... what you have inside
I think I've gone insane
I can't remember my own name
I think I've gone insane

Another dream has gone (?)
And your friends just tell you lies
Then you realize... you gonna die anyway
I think I've gone insane
I can't remember my own name
I think I've gone insane
I can't remember my own name
I think I've gone insane
I can't remember my own name
I think I've gone insane

Lost in a world without reality
I'm frightened to move
I'm frightened to speak
And I will kill for a good nights sleep
I'm feeling
I'm feeling dead
Dead
Dead
Dead
I think I've gone insane
I can't remember my own name
I think I've gone insane
I can't remember my own name
I think I've gone insane
I can't remember my own name
I think I've gone insane
I can't remember
I can't remember
I can't remember
I can't remember

    General CommentI believe its about not enjoying life on the road. With lines like "I would kill for a good night's sleep". I remember when Troublegum was released Andy Cairns on the evening session saying it was based on an old irish story:
    "A man goes into the doctors with depression after trying every pill and therapy the doctor says the only thing left to suggest is for his patient to see a clown who makes everyone in the town laugh. Then the patient says I am that clown." I guess this was related to Andy being exhausted on the road and getting use to stardom (and your friends just tell you lies). Despite this he was making lots of people happy. I also remember at the time Steve Lamacq saying it ounded like hardcore REM which Andy took as a huge compliment .

    General CommentIts the description of a scary mushroom/LSD trip where its terrifying, reality is no more and there is a possibility of dying from laughing so hard. Maybe?
