Sage Madness

Sage Madness


Some say I’m delusional but I disagree
When it comes to sage-y wisdom I ams have great wealth
Every now and then, I pull out my chessboard
And it never fails, I outsmart myself

(Chorus)
I cannot conform, even if I tried
I have been this insane ever since the night I died
Drink all night, sing all day
Undead Gypsies here to stay
Oh oh we will never fall in line

I care not for gold or silver nor care I for fancy jewels
All that wealth is useless when it can’t buy what you need
Freedom happiness and love, this is what I’m thinking of
And every now and then a throat on which to feed

I cannot conform, even if I tried
I have been this insane ever since the night I died
Drink all night, sing all day
Undead Gypsies here to stay
Oh oh we will never fall in line

Whether male or female slut, in a palace or mud hut
You can be a fool as easily as can be wise
Whether you are Irish boozer or a plain old drunken loser
Freedom can be yours when your dreams are realized

Since the night that I was born, to the night my life was taken
Everybody says Gogu, you are one of a kind
Since I cut my own self loose
From my twisted scratchy noose
I’m doing well considering I lost my mind

I cannot conform, even if I tried
I have been this insane ever since the night I died
Drink all night, sing all day
Undead Gypsies here to stay
Oh oh we will never fall in line

Whether male or female slut, in a palace or mud hut
You can be a fool as easily as can be wise
Whether you are Irish boozer or a plain old drunken loser
Freedom can be yours when your dreams are realized

After every single show, I will read the band’s tarot
Just for making sure that we have not lost our way
Magic, magic, crystal ball, who’s most insane of them all?
“That would be you!” I heard my own voice say

I cannot conform, even if I tried
I have been this insane ever since the night I died
Drink all night, sing all day
Undead Gypsies here to stay
Oh oh we will never fall in line

We cannot conform, even if we tried
We have been this insane ever since the night we died
Drink all night, sing all day
Undead Gypsies here to stay
Oh oh we will never fall in line

Oh oh we will never fall in line!
