"Make You Crazy"
Brett Dennen

The Album is called
Hope for the Hopeless

"You Know, It's hard to be Yourself,
Free Yourself, To see Yourself,
When all around You there are Lies just to get You,
Spies just to get You, To Buy so they can get You?

There are Cameras in the sky, Lasers in our Living rooms,
There are Wolves watching wearing Sheep's Costumes?

It's Enough to make You go crazy (woah)
It's Enough to make You Mad?
It's Enough to make You go crazy (woah)
And, I'm amazed I Haven't yet?

Isn't It, A Shame The way We cheat Each other,
Treat Each other, Beat Each other?

It's, A Shame The way We use One other, Abuse One another?

And, Screw One another, It's true.

They will Lock You up in Prison,
But They won't call it slavery,
There are stolen Children raised and Trained in Armies?

It's Enough to make You go crazy (woah)
It's Enough to make You Mad?
It's Enough to make You go crazy (woah)
And I'm amazed I haven't yet?

Don't hesitate to speak Your Mind? (speak Your Mind)
Never hesitate to speak Your Heart? (speak Your Heart)
They'll call You crazy, When You speak Your Mind? (When You speak Your Mind)
So never, Never hesitate? (never hesitate)

'Cause It's Enough to make You go crazy? (woah)
It's Enough to make You Mad?
It's Enough to make You go crazy (woah)
And, I'm amazed I haven't yet?

Na so Them go lock You for Prison
Na so Them go beat You for Prison?
Them no go call am slavery?
Na him dey make me vex?

Na so Them go lock You for Prison?
Na so Them go beat You for Prison?
Na him they make Me vex?
Na him they make Me craze?

It's Enough to make You go crazy? (woah)
It's Enough to make You Mad?
It's Enough to make You go crazy? (woah)
And, I'd be crazy Not to Care?"

The tune is actually upbeat...
