Diary of a Madman

Written by Osbourne/Rhoads/Daisley/Kerslake
Screaming at the window
Watch me die another day
Hopeless situation
Endless price I have to pay

        Sanity now it's beyond me
        There's no choice

Diary of a madman
Walk the line again today
Entries of confusion
Dear diary, I'm here to stay

        Manic depression befriends me
        Hear my voice
        Sanity now it's beyond me
        There's no choice

A sickened mind and spirit
The mirror tells me lies
Could I mistake myself for someone
Who lives behind my eyes?
Will he escape my soul
Or will he live in me?
Is he trying to get out
Or trying to enter me?

Voices in the darkness
Scream away my mental health
Can I ask a question
To help me save me from myself?

        Enemies fill up the pages
        Are they me
        Monday 'til Sunday in stages
        Set me free
