    !---- spoiler ----!

    day after day
    they send my friends away
    to mansions cold and grey
    to the far side of town
    where the thin men stalk the streets
    while the sane stay underground

    day after day
    they tell me i can go
    they tell me i can blow
    to the far side of town
    where it's pointless to be high
    'cause it's such a long way down
    so i tell them that
    i can fly, i will scream, i will break my arm

    i will do me harm
    here i stand, foot in hand, talking to my wall
    i'm not quite right at all...am i?

    don't set me free, i'm as heavy as can be
    just my librium and me
    and my e.s.t. makes three

    cause i'd rather stay here
    with all the madmen
    than perish with the sadmen roaming free

    and i'd rather play here
    with all the madmen
    for i'm quite content they're all as sane as me

    (where can the horizon lie
    when a nation hides
    its organic minds in a cellar...dark and grim
    they must be very dim)

    day after day
    they take some brain away
    then turn my face around
    to the far side of town
    and tell me that it's real
    then ask me how i feel

    here i stand, foot in hand, talking to my wall
    i'm not quite right at all
    don't set me free, i'm as helpless as can be
    my libido's split on me
    gimme some good 'ole lobotomy

    cause i'd rather stay here
    with all the madmen
    than perish with the sadmen
    roaming free and i'd rather play here
    with all the madmen
    for i'm quite content
    they're all as sane as me
    zane, zane, zane ouvre le chien
