  • I, I can't get these memories out of my mind
    And some kind of madness has started to evolve
    I, I tried so hard to let you go
    But some kind of madness is swallowing me whole, yeah

    I have finally seen the light
    And I have finally realized
    What you mean
    Oh oh oh

    And now, I need to know is this real love
    Or is it just madness keeping us afloat?
    And when I look back at all the crazy fights we had
    Like some kind of madness
    Was taking control
    Yeah

    And now I have finally seen the light
    And I have finally realized
    What you need
    Mm

    And now I have finally seen the end (Finally seen the end)
    And I'm not expecting you to care (Expecting you to care)
    But I have finally seen the light (Finally seen the light)
    I have finally realized (Realized)
    I need to love
    I need to love

    Come to me,
    Trust in your dream
    Come on and rescue me
    Yes I have known, I can be wrong
    Maybe I'm too headstrong
    Our love is

  • Debbie from New JerseyLeelo I'm glad you are doing good! I wish there were more success stories.
  • Leelo from ArkansasThis song came out in a time in my life that really was madness. The people in my life & the time & energy we spent around the madness of methamphetamine & the hell it drags you down too can only be defined as just that, madness. The madness sent me straight to prison. I was given a ten year sentence but the prison had a "boot camp" program that got me home in 9 months versus 30 months. I endured some hard (for me) quiet times (I sat for 6-8 hrs staring at a wall & speaking only when spoken too). I would play Madness over & over in my head & it literally saved me from going mad. I've never personally had 1 song come to mean so many different things in my personal thoughts & emotions. Now it seems Dig Down is gonna have the same affect. I love you Muse!! Ty for the great music!!
