Straitjacket (A Mandatory Hug.) new song by me

Straitjackets (A Mandatory Hug.)
_______________________________

[Remember the “Lovers”- There’s nowhere I won’t go.]
[Innocent games children play- Hide And- Touch My No-No!]
[Us under the covers- Did it scar me?… I …Don’t know]
[NO!- DON’T TOUCH ME THERE-‘S NOWHERE I WONT GO!!!]

(“You Look Like You Need A Hug…”)

They told me!!! They really, really told me!!! (Red STAINS!!!)
“STOP!!!. PRETENDING!!!. TO!!!. BE!!!. DEPRESSED!!!.”
Now, not even the Straitjacket can hold me!!! (Dead-Pains…)
I hate to say I told you so. BUT YOU KNOW THE REST.

It’s only funny until Brain function gets lost…
“Your Son needs…” SANITY has a High Cost…
“WE need money for the toilets to get plumbed…”
“Um, Why don’t we… Dump him in The Asylum!!!”

Mom an Dad said I had to go ‘cause our property was foreclosed
The men had White Coats!!!… But all I got was a Hospital Gown…
With every Little Breeze… Making me feel SMALL and EXPOSED…
I haven’t been SO HOMESICK… Since I BURNED MY HOUSE DOWN

They told me!!! They really, really told me!!! (Red STAINS!!!)
“STOP!!!. PRETENDING!!!. TO!!!. BE!!!. DEPRESSED!!!.”
Now, not even the Straitjacket can hold me!!! (Dead-Pains…)
I hate to say I told you so. BUT YOU KNOW THE REST.

You’re The-Boy-Who-Cried-Wolf, calling for Red-Riding-Hood
“I’m NOT INSANE!!!” You say… After howling at the moon.
Dear, lay back in bed… Yelling won’t do your head any good…
Our Slogan here’s “If you ain’t NOW… You will be SOON!!!”

(“…You Look Like You Need A Hug”)

They told me!!! They really, really told me!!! (Red STAINS!!!)
“STOP!!!. PRETENDING!!!. TO!!!. BE!!!. DEPRESSED!!!.”
Now, not even the Straitjacket can hold me!!! (Dead-Pains…)
I hate to say I told you so. BUT YOU KNOW THE REST.

While we’re away, outside it’s rainin’
In SANITY- We’re PRAYIN’ to get out
ALL DAY… Us patients stay in…
An we’re NEVER EVER let out!!!

Look out the window, everything’s CHANGED…
How can I live in a world where nothing is deranged
So picture perfect with their purgatory-white smiles
Won’t last one NIGHT?… I won’t last one MILE…

Sick of seeing Caskets being loaned
I’m looking out the window at the rain
Asking, in my Home-Sweet-Home…
Why Happily-Ever-After never came…

“Sorry I’m away, but I’ll be released one of these days…
They can’t keep me forever, not like those Lunatic Clichés
So I’ll stay awake with the help of my imaginary friends…
No… They will NEVER kill me… Until THE VERY END!!!”

Look out the window, everything’s CHANGED…
How can I live in a world where nothing is deranged
So picture perfect with their purgatory-white smiles
Won’t last one NIGHT?… I won’t last one MILE…

Sick of seeing Caskets being loaned
I’m looking out the window at the rain
Asking, in my Home-Sweet-Home…
Why Happily-Ever-After never came…

Let’s play Seven Deadly Sins…
Angel, Angel in a Padded Cell…
TASTE YOUR OWN MEDICINE!!!
LET’S BRING HEAVEN TO HELL!!!

Dumped in here for- “REASONS UNKNOWN.”
But I’ve finally got some keys of my own…
So tonight there’ll be a Mob Of Madness!…
I’m re-opening Pandora’s Box of BADNESS!!!

They told me!!! They really, really told me!!! (Red STAINS!!!)
“STOP!!!. PRETENDING!!!. TO!!!. BE!!!. DEPRESSED!!!.”
Now, not even the Straitjacket can hold me!!! (Dead-Pains…)
I hate to say I told you so. BUT YOU KNOW THE REST.

[Oh you’ve been dead to me, ever since I hit that high note.]
[So I spill my guts an NOW you come with a cup?!]
[Remember you said to me, an I QUOTE-]
[…“SHUT UP!!!”… “SHUT UP!!!”]

(“Hug Me!”)
