I believe you've rendered me quite insane

It's becoming clear that I cannot flee

Still I try to hide in vain


The wind has swept away the rain

It's queer, this calm and silent sea

I believe you've rendered me quite insane


This ominous quiet I can't explain

The sudden stillness inside of me

Still I try to hide in vain


You lead me down the winding lane

The dangerous path ahead I see

I believe you've rendered me quite insane


Tethered to love with a silver chain

No one can hear my dire plea

Still I try to hide in vain


Under your vile and mirthless reign

I know now I can never run free

I believe you've rendered me quite insane

Still I try to hide in vain
