Madhouse

  • I feel a strange sensation taking over from my head to my toes
    I got the shakes body rippling it's enough to shatter my bones

    Is it all a dream? 'Cause I don't wanna stay awake
    But I won't remember a thing
    And now it's running through my veins
    I don't know what's happening, the beats so sick

    Running from the madhouse, they won't take me back
    Got the medicines to give me what I need
    Yes I'm burning up but music is my drug
    Doesn't matter if I shout or if I scream

    They're coming for me
    They're coming for me

    Everywhere I look I'm shook I got bloodshot eyes
    I'm like a fugitive tryna climb the walls but my hands are tied
    In just one touch and I'm infected by the sound crawling all over my skin
    And the sky is falling down, I don't know what's happening, beats so sick

    Running from the madhouse, they won't take me back
    Got the medicines to give me what I need
    Yes I'm burning up but music is my drug
    Doesn't matter if I shout or if I scream

    They're coming for me
    They're coming for me

    They're coming for me, oh oh

    Men in white coats, coats, getting so close, close
    Saying my prayers, don't take me back there
    Men in white coats, coats, getting so close, close
    Saying my prayers don't take me back,
    Take me back, take me back there

    They're coming for me

    Running from the madhouse, they won't take me back
    Got the medicines to give me what I need
    Yes I'm burning up but music is my drug
    Doesn't matter if I shout or if I scream

    They're coming for me
    It's like I'm running but I just can't find my way
    (I don't wanna go back)
    And they can't hear my voice no matter how I scream
    They're coming for me Writer/s: SHERTZ JAMES
