My Mental Collapse

[Verse 1]

Let me tell you a story

About my mental collapse

It started on the streets of Dublin

The part with dumpy flats

I would look outside my window

To the streets below

And I would see the people

All the ones I’d never know
[Chorus]

But I’d give all my money

Just for someone to look up

[Verse 2]

That was the beginning

But in several years to come

I began to stay upstairs

And only go out some

I saw outside the kids are playing

Looks like so much fun

But they ignored the weird old boy

And from me they would run[Chorus]

But I’d give all my money

Just for somеone not to run[Verse 3]

More and more I saw thеm there

They must have had a gas

But there I was just watching them

And counting the time pass

Nobody should think to knock

Or invite me outside

And if I called they just hang up

And then they’d go and hide[Chorus]

But I’d give all my money

Just for someone to stay and chat

[Verse 4]

And after several years of this

My brain was going mad

I’d become filled with anger

But it only made me sad

Every thought I thought

Was just about one special girl

I tried to block her out

But she grew bigger than the world[Chorus]

But I’d give all my money

Just for someone like that girl[Verse 5]

I would sit on park benches

As the rain came down

And think about the bloody mess

And how it’ll come around

It’s always inconclusive

I’ve got cancer of the brain

My mind is gone, my money’s gone

And they’ve labeled me insane[Chorus]

But I’d give all my money

To anyone who’d make me sane

[Bridge]

Whoa-ho, oh-ho, oh-ho, oh

Oh-ho, oh-ho, oh-ho-oh

Oh-ho, oh-ho, oh-ho, oh

Oh-ho, oh-ho, oh-ho-oh

Oh-ho, oh-ho, oh-ho, oh

Oh-ho, oh-ho, oh-ho-oh[Verse 6]

They’ve taken all of my affects

They’ve taken all my cash

They’ve taken all my clothing

Now I have to bare my ass

I’ve become the second rate

And no one seems to care

I wish I had someone to notice

Someone who’s always there[Chorus]

But I’d give all my money

To anyone who would care
