It Takes a Fool To Remain Sane

Ark, The


Whatever happened to the funky race?
A generation lost in pace
Wasn't life supposed to be more than this?
In this kiss I'll change your bore for my bliss
But let go of my hand and it will slip out in the sand if youdon't give me the chance
To break down the walls of attitude
I ask nothing of you
Not even your gratitude

And if you think I'm corny
Then it will not make me sorry
It's your right to laugh at me
And in turn, that's my oppurtunity
To feel brave
Because ridicule is no shame
It's just a way to eclipse hate
It's just a way to put my back straight
It's just a way to remain sane

Every morning I would see her getting off the bus the picturenever drops
It's like a multicoloured snapshot stuck in my brain
It kept me sane for a couple of years
As it drenched my fears
Of becoming like the others
Who become unhappy mothers
And fathers of unhappy kids
And why is that?
'Cause they've forgotten how to play
Maybe they´re afraid to feel ashamed
To seem strange
To seem insane
To gain weight
To seem gay
I tell you this

That it takes a fool to remain sane
It takes a fool to remain sane
It takes a fool to remain sane
In this world all covered up in shame
(Oh, take it to the stage!)

So, take it to the stage in a multicoloured jacket take itjackpot, crackpot
Strutting like a peacock
Nailvarnish Arkansas
Shimmy-shammy featherboah crackpot haircut
Dye your hair in glowing red and blue

Do, do, do! What you wanna do, don't think twice, do what you have to do
Do, do, do,do, let your heart decide what you have to do that´sall there is to find
'Cause it takes a fool to remain sane
Oh, it takes a fool to remain sane
It takes a fool to remain sane
In this world all covered up in shame
It takes a fool to remain sane
It takes a fool to remain sane
It takes a fool to remain sane
In this world all covered up in shame
Oh, it takes a fool!
