Type O Negative – Who Will Save The Sane? lyrics

Periodic tableware
Psychotropic science fare

But who will - save the sane
Some beings - just can't change
Now - crawl on by - a fake - tear in your eye
And think - isn't he strange

Pseudogasmic chemistry
Necromorphic apathy

But who will - save the sane
Some beings - just can't change
Now - crawl on by - a fake - tear in your eye
And think - isn't he strange

Physical laws unapplied - hamper my - quest
Unsurreal world of unfailed - HIV - tests
Der ubermensch warning of pi techno junkies - 3.141592653
Come on boy - tell me - tell me

Tentative ambulance date - bound for G - ward
Beartrap psychiatrist bait - chew my paw - off
Unmercilessly we will take you away to slumber
But only if you can recite avogadro's number
Come on boy - tell me - tell me

But who will - save the sane
Some beings - just can't change
Now - crawl on by - a fake - tear in your eye
And think - isn't he strange

Now - crawl on by - a fake tear in your eye
And think - wasn't he strange

    This song by Type O Negatives is multifaceted and highly personal. It gives the listener an impression of fatalism (Who will save the sane? Some beings just can't change)

    It alludes to Peter Steele's interest in scientific and mathematical concepts, for example, the recitation of Pi, and Avogadro's Number (which is the amount of atoms or molecules in one mole [10 to the 23rd power] of a particular substance). It also makes references to hospitalization, the feelings of anxiety and fear while waiting for mental health treatment, unwelcome medication that leaves the individual drowsy. It also suggests that those in charge of treatment (Ubermensch) have complicated and irrelevant expectations of what needs to be done in order to improve the condition in question.
