The Lyrics

They came and took me away, ha-haa
Hello doctor, my old friend
you came to visit me again
I have that ill feeling softly creeping,
Please give me pills to put me sleeping,
This disorder that is looming in my brain
Still remains
Within the cell of asylum.

In restless frenzy I was caught
by the cops who me here brought
They whacked and beat me up me with their nightsticks
handcuffed me and gave me several kicks
And they stuck a needle in my butt
- that i got
I woke in cell of asylum

And in fluorescent light I saw
White-coated people, five or more.
I saw a straightjacket I was wearing
Some medspeak I was hearing
I was hearing words of voices inside my head
and then they dared
To lock me in cell of asylum.

Fools said I, you do not know
see my maniac strength to grow.
I wanna burn this whole asylum down
see the flames rising from the ground
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
they rang the bell
In the cell of asylum

Those visions I see every day -
Voices in in my head they say
Gotta keep all those fires burning,
And the flames that they are forming.
Are the signs of orgastic joy only fire can bring
I now sing
Here in the cell of asylum....

Title caught my eye. Now it's stuck in my head driving me crazy =)

Was going 455 on this but perhaps you pronounce " Asylum " with 2 syllables vs 3 ( and a few other minor pacing problems ). Besides, after huffing gas and being in an asylum it is excusable ( and funny ) so 555.
