Insanity Loves Company

There’s something about you.
You’re insanity
Wrapped up in a pretty package.
The sweetest cup of poison.

There’s something in your eyes.
I know I should be afraid.
But fear doesn’t course through
My veins when I look at you.

Because I know you.
I know the one behind
The pretty smiles
And the fake laughs.
I know the real you.
The one you hide from the world.

I know the little voice
Inside of you,
That cries out from the pain.
The shy little child,
Too alone and too sad to shine.

This dark mask of the
Court jester you wear
Doesn’t frighten me away.
Because I know you.
You’re just like me.

And we’re all mad here.
