The thoughts from my mind Command my lips say I hate you The thoughts from my mind Command my hands to cut your silken flesh The thoughts from my mind Command my feet to stomp your head The thoughts from my mind have one question When will this ever end?
[chorus] Not much to the life I live Same four walls I have nothing left to give Please take it all away Same four walls
The thoughts from my mind Feel the pain as rats claw at my flesh
The thoughts from my mind Feels the joy as the needles hits my vein The thoughts from my mind Smells the stench as shit runs down my leg The thoughts from my mind ask for sanity Now for this I beg
The thoughts from my mind Command my lips say I hate you The thoughts from my mind Command my hands to cut your silken flesh The thoughts from my mind Command my feet to stomp your head The thoughts from my mind have one question When will I be dead?

Joann from Portsmouth, VaHearing this song and if it is really about the end result of suicide, it really brings back memories to me, but I listened to it anyway, it does not bring closure to a son lost, but I know I live with the finality of what suicide is everyday in my memories of days lost and days gone by, 21 years later, I LOVE YOU RONNIE
Cj from Wasilla, AkJust to let everyone know: the dialogue that is mentioned actually happens at the beginning of the album, and more is said throughout. At the end, he says, "There's nothing left for me", and then the gunshot. There is then a hidden track called "The Funeral", making Tormented a concept album about a suicidal individual.
Pete Townshend never had a #1 UK hit with The Who or as a solo artist, but he did produce and play on a song that hit the top spot there: "Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman, a group he assembled.
The third verse of "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm" by Crash Test Dummies ("they shook and lurched all over the church floor...") was inspired by girl whose parents would speak in tongues at their Pentecostal service.
The seemingly inoffensive song, "Deep In The Heart Of Texas," was banned by the BBC when it was released in 1942. They deemed the song too catchy, with authorities in wartime Britain concerned that factory workers would be distracted if they heard it during a shift.
