about

This song is about the non-apparancy of mental illness and how that is a challenge in a society that diminishes or stigmatizes.

lyrics

You and I are designed to bend
flex our mendable muscles
slings to hold us when we're broken
we have our bodies and our modern medicines
scrapes and bruises designed to mend
but behind our smiles
all we can do is hide
all we can do is:

Sanity, will you remember me when I am gone.
Gone away.

All we are is cages of atoms
behind the bars of bones
sequestered secrets in the solitary silence of our souls
subtle stirring and we keep silent
and our secrets sound like SIRENS in the depths of our minds
all we can do is hide
all we can do is:

Sanity, will you remember me when I am gone.
Gone away.

I know what you've been thinking
sneaky yearnings you hold dear to your diaries
don't let them leave
your brain to paper
'cause suppose someone finds them
and they think your crazy
we all follow a code of confidentiality
in the depths of our lives
all we can do is hide
all we can do is:

Sanity, will you remember me when I am gone.
Gone away.
