  • 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 (whoa)
    It's enough to make you mad
    It's enough to make you go crazy (whoa)
    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 (whoa)
    It's enough to make you mad
    It's enough to make you go crazy (whoa)
    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 (whoa)
    It's enough to make you mad
    It's enough to make you go crazy (whoa)
    And I'm amazed I haven't yet

    Na sol them go lock you for prison?
    Na sol them go beat you for prison?
    Them no go call am slavery?
    Na him them make me vex?

    Na sol them go lock you for prison?
    Na sol 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 (whoa)
    It's enough to make you mad
    It's enough to make you go crazy (whoa)
    And I'd be crazy not to care Writer/s: Brett Dennen
