"Genius Or Lunatic" lyrics - THE POP GROUP

"Genius Or Lunatic"

If they don't like your views
And they don't like your art
They put you in a mental home
And take your mind apart
And they'll put you in a padded cell
Because you're too creative
And torture you to hell
And you're lucky you're allowed to live

Genius or lunatic
Genius or...

And you're full of anger
And you know you're sane
It's those who put you there
Who are corrupt and insane
They did it to Van Gogh
They did it to Andreas
They said I'd said enough
And now it's away with me


What's the borderline between genius or lunatic
Shut up! and you'll be fine
Dissent and you'll be mentally sick
Let me out of here...
