|Gnarls Barkley – Crazy Lyrics||11 years ago|
The song is about someone who is telling people he knows more than he should, but at the same time he thinks he's probably just going insane. The song starts like this, "when your out there yeah, I was out of touch, but it wasn't because I didn't know enough, I just knew too much". Then it looks like he's talking to the people (us), and he says "and I hope that you are having the time of your life, but think twice, that's my only advice", he's talking to normal people, saying your having a great time being ignorant and not understanding what the crazy person understands. Then it's "come on know who do you think you are, hahaha bless your soul, you really think your in control", again talking to the sane person saying who do you think you are, because the crazy person has realized something the sane person hasn't, and that's that he doesn't control himself, but that he's being manipulated by demonic forces, just like the crazy person. then "my heroes are at heart, to the life I want to live, and all I remember is thinking I want to be like them, ever since I was little it looked like fun, and it's no coincidence I've come, and I can die when I'm done", the crazy person wanted to be like these heroes and has now come to be like them, manipulated the entire way, and he wants to keep living "the life", and when he's done living it, he dies.
The entire point of the song is basically saying were either fucking crazy, or were being manipulated and we don't even know it. And when anyone tells us whats actually going on, we brush them off as just another crazy person.
