  • In a church, by the face
    He talks about the people going under

    Only child know

    A man decides after seventy years
    That what he goes there for, is to unlock the door
    While those around him criticize and sleep
    And through a fractal on a breaking wall
    I see you my friend, and touch your face again
    Miracles will happen as we trip

    But we're never gonna survive, unless
    We get a little crazy
    No we're never gonna survive, unless
    We are a little crazy

    Crazy yellow people walking through my head
    One of them's got a gun, to shoot the other one
    And yet together they were friends at school
    Ohh, get it, get it, get it, get it no no

    If all were there when we first took the pill
    Then maybe, then maybe, then maybe, then maybe
    Miracles will happen as we speak

    But we're never gonna survive unless
    We get a little crazy
    No we're never gonna survive unless
    We are a little crazy
    No no, never survive, unless we get a little bit

    Oh, a little bit
    Oh, a little bit

    Amanda decides to go along after seventeen years
    Oh darlin'
    In a sky full of people, only some want to fly
    Isn't that crazy
    In a world full of people, only some want to fly
    Isn't that crazy, crazy
    In a heaven of people there's only some want to fly
    Ain't that crazy
    Oh babe, oh darlin'
    In a world full of people there's only some want to fly
    Isn't that crazy, isn't that crazy, isn't that crazy, isn't that crazy

    But were never gonna survive unless, we get a little crazy
    No were never gonna to survive unless we are a little
    But were never gonna survive unless, we get a little crazy
    No were never gonna to survive unless, we are a little, crazy
    No no, never survive unless, we get a little bit

    And then you see things
    The size of which you've never known before

    They'll break it

    Someday, only child know

    Them things
    The size of which you've never known before

    Someday, someway, someway, someway, someday, someday Writer/s: Guy Sigsworth, Henry Olusegun Adeola Samuel

  • Kat from Adelaide, AustraliaYou're right Andy.

    Right up there with "Cocaine" by JJ Cale, it's about as pro-drugs as it gets.
  • Andy from Lake City, Flthis is as boldly pro-drugs as it gets. seal is arguing that violence, aggression, fear, and anxiety are going to undo us all if we don't have that crutch, steam-valve, consciousness enhancer, social lubricant. the real irony is that the craziest people are long-term addicts.
  • Kate from New York, Nymushroomhead also covers this song.
