Iím feeling madness
Like an unwanted guest in my home
Youíre cramping my style
And all the while
You said that youíd leave me alone
You dropped your sadness
With a clatter and clang on my floor
Youíre raising the dead 
With the tears that youíve shed
And you always come asking for more

Oh, I can look after you
Like I always do.

Iíll build a fortress
Like the old fashioned fairy tale kind
With high tower walls
To make you feel small
And to keep all my madness inside

Under my mattress
I keep boxes of beautiful dreams
And late at night
When no oneís in sight 
They come out and whisper to me

Oh, I can look after you
Like I always do
