I feel insane every single time
I'm asked to compromise
Cause I'm afraid and stuck in my ways
And that's the way it stays
So how long did I expect love to outweigh ignorance
By that look on your face I may have forced the scale to tip

I'm not insane, I'm not insane
I'm not insane, I'm not - not insane

(Mother)
Come back to me, it's almost easy
(Said it all)
Come back again, it's almost easy

Shame pulses through my heart
From the things I've done to you
It's hard to face, but the fact remains
That this is nothing new

I left you bound and tied with suicidal memories
Selfish beneath the skin
But deep inside I'm not insane.

I'm not insane, I'm not insane.
I'm not insane, I'm not - not insane.

(Mother)
Come back to me, it's almost easy
(Said it all)
Come back again, it's almost easy
(You learned your lesson)
Come back to me, it's almost easy
(But first you'll fall)
Come back again, it's almost easy

Now that I've lost you it kills me to say
(Hurts to say)
I tried to hold on as you slowly slipped away. (Slowly slipped away)
I'm losing the fight.
I treated you so wrong, now let me make it right.
(Make it all right)

I'm not insane, I'm not insane. Ha Ha Ha Ha
I'm not insane, I'm not - not insane.

(Mother)
Come back to me, it's almost easy
(Said it all)
Come back again, it's almost easy
(You learned your lesson)
Come back to me, it's almost easy
(But still you fall)
Come back again, it's almost easy

    I didn't see it as a boyfriend girlfriend relationship, but as a mother child relationship. Thinking of it like that it really hits home with me because me and my mother have a lot of problems, I feel exactly like the lyrics, sometimes it is easy to just go around forcing your way of doing things. But easier or not it's the wrong thing to do no matter how you look at it.

    Elceeserious-.
    If you knew anything about this band, or the Rev, you would know that he was Catholic. He wasn't depressed - again, if you knew anything about him, you'd know he was a happy person most of the time.
    If you can interperate the lyrics at all, the song is about losing someone close to you, and begging for them to come back. It's about treating someone close to you badly and wanting them to come back, feeling horrible and 'insane' at what you did.
    Get your facts straight before you go posting things like that. If you've heard any song by this band, you'd know they were not 'devil worshippers'.

    The way I see it is a plea from the rev to his mother to come back. I heard somewhere that the rev wrote this song, and I did a little research and found out that the revs behaviour as a child and a teenager were rather. "abnormal". I feel that hes admitting his guilt and begging her to come back. That's just me haha.
    And if the information I heard is false, then I'm sorry for sounding like a complete idiot: P

    I disagree; I think it's more along the lines of they broke up and they were relying on love completely, ignoring the problems that came up, so eventually they fell apart "so how long did i expect love to outweigh ignorance, by that look on your face i may have forced the scale to tip" so now he's asking her to come back to him, and it's almost easy because they loved each other so much, but it's still hard because they were torn apart by it as well
    by the way, I think I heard somewhere that this song was about shadows and his girlfriend breaking up, but again it was probably just a rumor, so I'm not saying my interpretation was correct, I'm simply saying that's what I got out of it.

    To me this is a reflection of how society deals with religion (christianity mainly) religion is passed down by mothers and fathers and it results in a lot of people having difficulty dealing with the insanity of some religions or absence of fact when following traditions like this. It almost seems to me like christ was suicidal in the choices he made and it is ironic in this song that the singer would reflect that on the mother as a bitter reminder of the truth. Its almost easy to give yourself blindly to a cause which commits you to leapa of faith to do what is popular within but not always moral or ethical.
