Lyrics

Liberate my madness!
Liberate my madness!
I just want to liberate my madness!
Liberate my madness!

Section off myself
Put a wall up what the hell have I done?
Keep the dog at bay
Survive by saving me
Values and the game
Not a fuck-up, not a part of your lie
I am one, I am all
I'm above and beyond
Stand off of the shit!
Back off or I'll spit!
So soft, you forget!
Your garbage in is garbage out!
You don't give a shit!
I won't play the fit!
Get off, get on this!
Your garbage in is garbage out!
Liberate my madness

Liberate my madness!
Liberate my madness!
I just want to liberate my madness!
Liberate my madness!

I am not ashamed
What is vital isn't always humane
You can break in vain
But you can't break away
Even in my face
A lot of bullshit, not a lot of the truth
I can't see from here
But I can smell your fear
Stand off of the shit!
Back off or I'll spit!
So soft, you forget!
Your garbage in is garbage out!
You don't give a shit!
I won't play the fit!
Get off, get on this!
Your garbage in is garbage out!

Saved, you're such a slave
I don't expect a name
You don't care, I wasn't witnessing
I can't be a part of a system such as this
Hard eyes glow right in my darkness again
With the sickness, renegade sisters, blisters
Salivate, litigate, liberate, madness, sadness
Fuck this, how long have I had this?
I don't need this, out of my business
Insert, engage, betray, my God!
Fraud!
Fraud!
Fraud!

Liberate my madness!
Liberate my madness!
I just want to liberate my madness!
Liberate my madness!

Song Meaning

As the song kicks off, Corey talks about "sectioning off himself", "putting a wall up", he's trying to protect himself and "survive". He's furious at what's going on in his life. He's being persecuted by the people around him, and he doesn't like it one fucking bit. Towards the end, Corey seems to go crazy.
