Mudvayne - The Patient Mental Lyrics




Patient,
Just as I am,
As always,
Watch the time go by,
Nothing left to pass by,
The minutes follow me,
Drunken little people,
Work away in me,

Why won't they leave me, leave me alone
When I don't even want me, want me

I have to, kill the words,
Before they, form my sentence,
The sentence that is me,
Judged by those that carry
The patient sits in cradled arms
That comfort me by strangling

Why won't they leave me, leave me alone
When I don't even want me,

The patient mental sits and stares
An idle mind that's empty, screaming
Staring back
Why won't they leave him, leave him alone
A passive speared ritual
Drive by our war ship...the hate driven envy

They have to kill the meal,
Before they can consume,
Consume my inner peace,
Without the understanding,
Trapped inside the works,
The hands are moving me

The patient mental sits and stares
An idle mind that's empty, screaming
Staring back
Why won't they leave him, leave him alone
A passive speared ritual
Drive by our war ship...the hate driven envy

Release me,
Let me go,
Why do they observe me?
There's nothing here to cure,
I can see the silhouettes,
That sit behind the mirror
I'm just like a clock upon the wall
Always moving, but never going anywhere

The patient mental sits and stares
An idle mind that's empty, screaming
Staring back
Why won't they leave him, leave him alone
A passive speared ritual
Drive by our war ship...the hate driven envy

  1. Gilmar Guimarães

    My favorite album from mudvayne

  2. Alexis Colon

    Mudvayne has alot of cool tracks but this one is my fav. Its hard to believe or except mental condition or admitting you need help. This song sums it up through the prospective of the patient. Love it.

    Kristen Martinez

    Yes! That part of the song is the most beautiful sound I've ever heard! The lyrics, the sound of his voice, the guitars, bass, drums, everything.

    Alexis Colon

    I agree it kind of sooths all madness going on with the instruments and mellows you out.

  12. Donald Trump

    This is poetry

    been the story of my life for the past 13 years

    Jose Martinez

    Dude! That's one of my favorite lines of all time! It takes me back to when I was 13 riding around with my parents to wherever the destination happened to be just sitting in the back looking out the window completely ignoring the scenery listening to my cd player.... I was reading along with the lyric book but stopped once i read "I'm just like a clock up on the wall, always moving but never going anywhere" I thought I understood how profound those lyrics really were back then or at least that they struck at my heartstrings... I was fascinated by the lyrics, the imagery, and later on in life experienced the true manifestation of these symbolic words.... Wasting precious time in ones life is a terrible thing that we can never recover time can be chipped away but never added to and despite the hardships at least one valuable piece of information comes to mind that i'd like to share..... "If you have a problem without a solution why rush to find the solution? If you have a problem that you know the solution to what's the rush to fix it? The only thing in life that has no remedy is death and so long as you're alive realize that time is on your side. Each and everyone of us are but a ripple in time leaving evidence of our existance and no matter how you choose to spend your time you'll find there will always be troubles, concerns, and wasted time. So long as you're still breathing the manifestation of remedy will come to you of this there is no doubt." so tick on clock i live on.

  17. The Faded Line

    Patient,
    Just as I am,
    As always,
    Watch the time go by,
    Nothing left to pass by,
    The minutes follow me,
    Drunken little people, 
    Work away in me,

    Why won't they leave me, leave me alone
    When I don't even want me, want me

    I have to, kill the words,
    Before they, form my sentence,
    The sentence that is me,
    Judged by those that carry
    The patient sits in cradled arms
    That comfort me by strangling

    Why won't they leave me, leave me alone
    When I don't even want me,

    The patient mental sits and stares
    An idle mind that's empty, screaming
    Staring back
    Why won't they leave him, leave him alone
    A passive speared ritual 
    Drive by our war ship...the hate driven envy

    They have to kill the meal,
    Before they can consume,
    Consume my inner peace, 
    Without the understanding,
    Trapped inside the works, 
    The hands are moving me

    The patient mental sits and stares
    An idle mind that's empty, screaming
    Staring back
    Why won't they leave him, leave him alone
    A passive speared ritual 
    Drive by our war ship...the hate driven envy

    Release me,
    Let me go,
    Why do they observe me?
    There's nothing here to cure,
    I can see the silhouettes,
    That sit behind the mirror
    I'm just like a clock upon the wall
    Always moving, but never going anywhere

    The patient mental sits and stares
    An idle mind that's empty, screaming
    Staring back
    Why won't they leave him, leave him alone
    A passive speared ritual 
    Drive by our war ship...the hate driven envy

    Alexis Colon

    I always find good bands and songs from the past way over due. Its sucks that Im late to discovering it but Im lucky because I get to burn them as if it just came out. Thats how I found parient mental.
