Ark — It Takes A Fool To Remain Sane lyrics

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

And if you think Iґm corny
Then it will not make me sorry
Itґs your right to laugh at me
And in turn, thatґs my oppurtunity
To feel brave
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

Every morning I would see her getting off the bus the picture never drops
Itґs 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?
ґCause theyґve forgotten how to play
Maybe theyґre 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 it jackpot, 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, Donґt think twice, do what you have to do,
Do, Do, Do, let your heart decide what you have to do thatґs all 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.
