When I lived in Buffalo, I remember hearing a story about a guy who thought he was Mick Jagger. He believed he was the lead singer of one of the most famous bands in the world, The Rolling Stones, and living in New York State’s Queen City. Mick was also living in nonviolent managed mental health facility.

One day, he approached the facility supervisor and declared he no longer believed he was Mick. The manager, a little surprised at the revelation, inquired how he had come to this realization. He replied he had been looking at the back cover of an album and didn’t see himself pictured. Just that easy …

Over the years, many artists have written about our minds ability to distort the reality that plainly sits before us.  A reality that can only be warped by the minds desire to find meaning where there is none.  A reality that we want so much, we look for messages where there are none.  A reality that slowly drifts into distorted Friday’s continuation of The Lyric Project 42.0 …

(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)

I, I can’t get these memories out of my mind,
And some kind of madness has started to evolve.
(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)
And I, I tried so hard to let you go,
But some kind of madness is swallowing me whole, yeah
(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)

I have finally seen the light,
And I have finally realized
What you mean.

Ooh oh oh

And now I need to know is this real love,
Or is it just madness keeping us afloat?
(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)
And when I look back at all the crazy fights we had,
Like some kind of madness was taking control, yeah
(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)

And now I have finally seen the light,
And I have finally realized
What you need.

Mmmm…

(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)

But now I have finally seen the end (finally seen the end)
And I’m not expecting you to care (expecting you to care)
But I have finally seen the light (finally seen the light)
I have finally realized (realized)
I need your love
I need your love

Come to me
Just in a dream.
Come on and rescue me.
Yes I know, I can’t be wrong,
And baby, you’re too headstrong.
Our love is
(Ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma…)
