Sanity is an illusion people came up with to make themselves feel better.

I've lost my mind to sanity
As depressing as it is, it's true
The one thing I've been proudest of
Was that I was never as sane as you

But now my mind thinks somewhat straight,
And I'm lost without a clue,
Why did this have to happen?
Why did my nightmare come true?

Every word of this is undeniably true. I'm still somewhat sane (Not for the lack of effort) and it is horribly depressing.
