Album: Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager (2010)
  • I swear to tell the truth
    The whole truth and nothing but
    I am the maniac
    I am the ghoul
    I'm in the shadows in the corner of my room
    This my new hideaway
    This is my tomb
    This is my coffin
    This is my place for unruliness, no worries
    I love the darkness yeah
    I like to marry it
    It is my cloak, it is my shield, it is my cape
    I love the dark, maybe we can make it darker
    Give me a marker

    I am the maniac
    I am the maniac
    I am the maniac

    I am the maniac, I am the fool
    I found a monster in me when I lost my cool
    It lives inside of me eating what's in its web
    Put black spray paint on my windows during the day
    Wanna spend time with it, I think I'm losing it
    Or I found it and I'm using it
    I wear my shades at night so I can look in the abyss
    I see something in nothingness if you could picture this
    Put black holes in my jar lid
    I climb the wall, I'm too high and now I'd die from the fall
    Before the waters to our knees
    We can't climb on the tree's wash away
    And you and I are the disease

    I am the maniac
    I am the maniac
    I am the maniac

    I am the mani-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-maniac (I am the maniac)
    I think I'm losing it (I am the maniac)
    I am the mani-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-maniac (I am the maniac)
    I think I'm lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-lo-sing it (I am the maniac) Writer/s: ANNE ERIN CLARK, ANTHONY KILHOFFER, SCOTT RAMON SEGURO MESCUDI, CHRISTOPHER PALKO
