"Go Insane" as written by and Lindsey Buckingham....
Two kinds of people in this world
Winners, losers
I lost my power in this world
'Cause I did not use it

So I go insane
Like I always do
And I call your name
She's a lot like you

Two kinds of trouble in this world
Living, dying
I lost my power in this world
And the rumors are flying

So I go insane
Like I always do
And I call your name
She's a lot like you

So I go insane
Like I always do
And I call your name
She's a lot like you

    General CommentThere's been speculation that this song is about Carol Ann Harris, Lindsey's girlfriend from the end of the Rumours recording sessions in 1976 all the way through 1984.

    awellwrittensong said it all-- this song IS a masterpiece. It emcompasses a much darker side of the human psyche while also seeming helpless. I think it is about losing the woman he loved due to his anger management issues and, consequently, he had to look at himself in light of the cause behind the breakup.

    "I call your name... she's a lot like you."

    Haunted by the previous relationships (Stevie, Carol Ann).

    General CommentI heard him on a radio show recently say that this was about the break up with Stevie nicks; having to compartmentalize his feelings while working with her.. and that every time he let his guard down and faced those feelings he started to feel like he was going crazy.
