Deadboy & The Elephantmen - Waking Up Insane Lyrics




scaring the Ghosts away wake me when i'm sane
on Mardi Gras day the cold of death
it may tear you from my breast
yet I know you are the smoke that is my breath
under the sky to live is to die
raven black the night and I
opel on the highway side
as we pass her a million times this night
don't seem like no sun exists that could eclipse this
scaring the Ghosts away wake me when I'm sane
again you are the smoke that is my breath
this bouquet of regret
under the sky to live is to die
radiation black the night and I
don't seem like no sun exists that could eclipse this
don't seem like no sun exists that could eclipse this
under the sky to live is to die
radiation black the night and I
don't seem like no sun exists that could eclipse this
don't seem like no sun exists that could eclipse this
don't seem like no sun exists that could ever eclipse this
don't seem like no sun exists that could eclipse this
waking up insane on Mardi Gras day
don't seem like no sun exists that could eclipse this
just wake me when I'm sane

    Master Of Fatality

    @stephopal opal haha bathroom is always an inspiring place...
    You and Dax sound like a killer fun duo. I wish I could be there around you two too back then (if I were alive. Im of 1998)... You gave me such a great insight to artists I enjoy and respect. And I was just about asking you for your official FB xD. Also your band is called "My page" right? I'll search them out.
    Thank you again. I wish you stay safe (because I heard NOLA is bit dangerous city... like 4rth in USA) and keep making music and enjoy life!

    rusty houston

    stephopal opal are you still making music?

  11. Andre

    So many years later. How the fuck did this dude not make it huge? All of the bands he’s been in are so bad ass.

  12. Hector Med

    Under the sky... to live... is to die...

  13. gothlizard

    Timeless classic right here

  14. Rachel Shelby

    Makes my soul cry. I love you! 😭

  15. Crystal Lee Hewitt

    shit I just staves myself with a dirty needle. again. fuck. fuck.. fuck

  16. Eddie Supe

    This bocay of reget

  17. Milan Phillips

    I wish I could play with dax if I could play with any band or dax i would chose dax. He is my favorite. Musican

  18. Kelli White

    The cold of death/It may tear you from my breast/Yet I know you are the smoke that is my breath... this bouquet of regret

    This is one of the last songs my husband and I listened to together before he died last Tuesday. The lyrics were already slightly depressing; now they're devastatingly close to home. Those lines would make a perfect tribute tattoo. :'(

    Daniel Moore

    Kelli White im very sorrt for your loss. My girlfriend passed away 4 days ago and this is one of the only things getting me through everything.

    stephopal opal

    Kelli White Very sorry for your loss🥀🌻..Music& Peace...Opal

    stephopal opal

    Daniel Moore Sorry for your loss...🍃🍁🍂🥀Just read the comment above & yours...My heart goes out to All😏💕Opal

  19. Kelli White

    One of the best

  20. Gayla McDonald Adkins

    Still feeling you Dax here in this boot, LA

    Gayla McDonald Adkins

    In memory of John Louis Segars II

  21. The Workshop

    I think this song is a tribute to Audie Pitre the bass player for acid bath. The line 'opel on the highway side' seems to relate to this also the line 'scaring the ghosts away' and 'you are the smoke that is my breath' seem to relate to a ghostly presence. - just a thought

    stephopal opal

    The Workshop..I was with Dax the night our friend..loved one passed..We drove up to Zepplins [Dax & I].& Well...will never forget...Audie& family on the two way highway..It was & is the most dangerous highways..Dax & I when going bk to Houma from New Orleans Louisiana [ where Dax would stay & write music in my bathtub]good acoustics..Hmmm..this makes me sad to write..maybe anothet time..Music & Peace☆♡☆Opal♡☆♡aka Venus Opal..Opal Enthroned..Stephanie Opal..Dax & the band just called me Mama or my name OpaL ..Audie Pitre RIP

    bethany2155

    stephopal opal listen to this crazy shit!! I too used to go to Zepplins almost every weekend back in the day. We both know that it was spelled Zepplins!! Rite?! Well look up the Mandela effect.. It was never spelled that way.. But we know it was in big ass letters behind the band as they played.. I looked at some old pics of shanny sane playing and it was spelled ZeppElins!!! Tripped me the fuck out!

    Booyakasha442

    +stephopal opal How about telling us now? What will you never forget Opal? One of my favorite Dax songs, such poetry. Are you Opal on the highway side!? You were married to Phil weren't you. I would love to visit New Orleans sometime and catch Dax perform live. I'll have to check out some of your music. Thanks for the perspective! Rest in peace Audie - Rest in peace Darrell - Some of the best to ever do it.

    stephopal opal

    @bethany2155 oooh..Just saw this will check out..after get out of hospital..love you beautiful!! Most def!! Much Respect from New Orleans Louisiana ☆ StephopalOpal aka Big Mama of music and Peace~

    Riveting

  23. R N

    This is as good as it gets for music. I've always wondered why certain bands are hugely successful, but it also makes me keep up the search for good bands knowing that the cream doesn't always rise to the top.

    Jason Thacker

    Yh, you're a Dead Girl kind of guy. Totally understandable.

    mnbc989

    +Jason Thacker Which one though? Agents or PTT?

  24. zlickDude

    I want to have sex to this song

    Ryan Meadows

    i've got a "to bone to" playlist on here i add songs to. this is on it. and a lot of "the black queen"...you should check them out too

    Bunnii Honey

    Ryan Meadows it should be named “a bone to pick with you” hah. Like that sayin? Get it? Yeah, I went there

  25. ShannonChanda Nicholas

    its hard to find some of the albums. i only know one person who does an he knows Dax hes got every song!!! it is in its own genre and it is awesome

    keep core out of metal.

    death folk.

  26. Sam McPherson

    does anyone know where to find a high quality version of this album cover? I cant seem to find it and when I search for this album it comes up with a completely different cover..

  27. Junkhead in purpleland

    Kind of Chris Cornell,Soundgarden songs.. Liked it ! I found them by iZombie :)

  28. portat guevara

    that song remins me a running to the edge of the world of marilyn manson

  29. Zoe Abarnathy

    Scaring the ghosts away.... wake me when I'm sane on Mardi Gras day.

    Honestly, this song always makes me just want to run away... & I don't mean that negatively, actually just to feel free... in general.

    Gallup Fights

    Exactly :)

    Ryan Meadows

    what's your IG? love meeting fellow dax fans

    Eric Undertaker

    I've done it, to NYC w 20 bucks in my pocket, made it 2 years

    RJ Ryder

    Just Run by DevilDriver is like that for me. It's way heavy and fast but at the same time (in the literal sense) it makes me want to run.

  30. Chris LeMay

    love this song!  lucky enuff to see them live, among other killer shows, such as Acid Bath, Agents of Oblivion and his acoustic sets...definitely one of the greatest singers of all time...and the music is in a league of its own! F**K I love this stuff!!!!

  31. bigd0112

    I remember being on the beach. On mushrooms with this song playing. It was beautiful

    Nick Johnson

    bigd0112 you sir know what life is all about. Many don’t understand the beauty of music and psychedelics. I feel sorry for those people.

    Sygg K Nielsen

    The Boundary Waters in the dead of winter, watching the Northern Lights.

  32. jean Mac

    lol get all the albums and listen to them,so u can die in peace! I agree, he comes to my city once a year, and I miss it every time. This year, because I had the dat wrong, by a few days. So in all fairness, he must return. Everyone anywhere within earshot, or sight of my facebook, KNOWS, without a doubt, Who Dax Riggs. Is. He is a genius, no 2 albums sound the same,and no two songs. His voice blows me away,no matter how many times I have heard a song. I actually found him, because of Nick Drake, who is the other half of my facebook postings! Yup, No one else out there Like Dax.

  33. Kaay Vicious

    Ahh, Dax. ❤️

  34. PageZ Z

    This song makes my heart bleed contentment, For about 1:55 Then Dax wakes me and reminds me "It dont seem like no sun exists that could eclipse this. To live is to die..... Waking up insane......", Cuz common? Who in their right mind? Truely is sane?

  35. Lokis Joke

    song reminds me of Albuquerque

  36. AdoreYouInAshXI

    Hard to believe I left a comment on this song 4 years ago and I'm still coming back to listen to it. Time flys by. 

    Kind of depressing. 

    Kelly Ganley

    woiw you comment this song 7 years ago and you put another comment 4 years ago and another now !

    Ryan Hale

    Ha! I feel that!...I love coming across shit like that. Forgot I commented on something in the past. Anyways, lol...Kinda depressing u say? Yeah I guess it kinda is.

    Gore Smasher

    This music is timeless

  37. CKA SKYNATYC

    So tragically fucking beautiful..

  38. Jordan May

    "Don't seem like no Sun exists that could eclipse this!"

  39. Jordan May

    Greatest indy album of all time IMO. Every song is a masterpiece! My band almost opened up for them right after this album was completed! Still pissed about that. I just saw and spoke to Dax the other day when he was doing an acoustic show in my town. 

  40. Gross Negligence

    Definitely want this song to be the first dance with my future bride @ the wedding <3 <3 <3  If she disagrees she don't deserve to be my bride

    Renee Schmidt

    Lemme know if you've found her yet... because I am that girl!
    Hell yes to this being a wedding song.

    Michael Stewart

    Gross Negligence your not the first to think that I actually asked Dax to perform at my wedding he said he doesn’t do that type of thing lol

    Chealz B

    Gross Negligence damn that would be the most romantic fucking thing ever. 🥰

  41. amber sanders

    Come on dax,we want to buy your music so we can listen to it wherever n whenever we need it.I know u look at YouTube.coment

    bridget oubre

    amber sanders you can get it on amazon prime music nowadays

  42. CID

    Can't buy it? No excuse not to download then.

    I've had 'old rock' cats thank me profusely for turning them onto is If This Is Hell, so trust me, worth the trip to the pirate bay.

  43. Gina Jordan

    This is so beautiful I am not sure my heart can stand it. His vocals are always stunning. Why aren't any of the videos with Dax singing linked to albums I can buy? :-/

  44. DrPerki

    Hell yeah, man.

  45. uncle jay

    acid bath........dax you rule

  46. Raven Feathers

    The lyrics are brilliant... So dark and powerful

  47. AdoreYouInAshXI

    Actually here I am STILL coming back to this song.

  48. WinterIsComingXII

    Wow, it's been two years since I left this comment and here I am still coming back to this song.

  49. wronkle

    Dax continues Dominate

  50. Dee Taylor

    Hooked another one.

  51. Dark Christian

    grunge lives!

  52. Dark Christian

    nice song,sweet voice.rock & roll never lies, amen

  53. Some Guy

    @ninjajohnw89 i was so thinking of that man. i just heard dax for the first time today and he reminded me of layne with the sincerity in his vocals.

  54. DrPerki

    @DrPerki Correction, ten years old.

  55. DrPerki

    Holy crap, I didn't know this was on youtube. I own the demo version of this album. It's incredible. I've been listening to it since it came out, at which time I was eight years old.

  56. LivashSB

    Story of my life.

  57. Adam Cochran

    I still like the demo version of this a whole lot more, but the production value of the album is pretty fucking amazing. Got an old school vibe to it. Dax Riggs is the fucking MAN!!!!!

  58. John Watson

    Songs like this don't require a video. The emotional lyrics paint a picture all by themselves. Similar to the music of Alice in Chains.

  59. Kelsey Evans

    POWERFUL, goose bumbs everytime , PURE POETIC LYRICAL GENIOUS, I am THE biggest fan perticularly of the first album "if this is hell then im lucky",the second album was somewhat dissapointing but grew on me just the same, no one i know will listen to this with me but I absolutely love it and always will.This album helped me threw some hard times, i'd play the whole album all the way through and then feel spiritually lifted,"touched" some might say. SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL.

  60. MrGrateful1000

    powerful.......thats all i got to say

  61. 420doby

    @disasterbydesign Good song the morticians flames... Acidbath...

  62. Dave Mundorff

    i still have all fingers but somewhere i lost my mind.?.?.?....

  63. AdoreYouInAshXI

    I listen to this song daily, it keeps me sane ;)
