Mad Hatter Lyrics

My friends don't walk they run.
Skinny dip in rabbit holes for fun.
Poppin', poppin' balloons with guns.
Gettin' high off helium.
We paint white roses red.
Each shade from a different person's head.
This dream, dream is a killer,...

    Here we come to the end of Crybaby's journey. Mad Hatter. She belongs in a wonderland world full of things of her insane imagination. Crybaby is afraid of normal people without mental illneses, and feels comfortable with ones who do. She always knew that she was secretly insane inside from all of the things that happened in her life. The line, 'I'm peeling the skin off my face, cause I really hate being safe,' which is truly terrifying. As for peeling the skin off your face. She adds that she doesn't like to be safe from others. She also has finally found freinds, (big, fuzzy animals as seen in the video) since she's always referring to as 'we.' Overall, Crybaby's identity was always truly, mentally, insane.

    Well, after ALL of the sad/traumatic events that happened throughout Crybaby's life, she drives herself insane. She finally has found comfort in her own little wonderland world. She's free from all of the people that caused her pain and anger.
    She expresses herself as insane. She's with all the other 'crazies' that make her feel normal.
    While the normal people make her feel scared, so she should be secluded from normal people without mental illnesses.
    She makes a lot of Alice in Wonderland references, which adds to the whole mental theme. In all, Crybaby has found a place where she can be psycho self.

    I think it means that crybaby is struggling to find a way to cope with her past and present emotions. According to the song it states that she is "getting high off helium" which means she is struggling too cope with the pain, so she turned to getting high. I like this song very much my favorite line is "so what if I'm crazy the best people are." Overall this song relates to me a lot

    This is based off Alice in Wonderland. As seen by the quotes "we paint white roses red" and "skinny dip in rabbit holes for fun" because alice fell into a rabbit hole. This is about Crybaby being crazy and having her own little wonderland

    Being crazy means being yourself. The normals are the people that are fake, not themselves. She finaly found some crazy friends and accepts her self.

    As someone with a mental illness, her lyrics seem like she's fantasizing mental illnesses.

    It's is about CryBaby being crazy from her family and she is finally expressing it. She finally finds friends that are crazy with her. She is afraid of the normals because she doesn't fit in with them and they think she is weird.

    I think that people think CryBaby is sick so don't hang out with her. It makes sense because she comes from a abusive family as you saw in dollhouse. So she finally fines people who are just like her. When she finally embraces her flaws she does fine friends. She feels insane like when she says the lyric" the crazies make me feel sane" stating she finally belongs somewhere better than her family she comes from.

    Crybaby is finally excepting who she is. She doesn't care if people don't accept her she will just remember she is crazy, insane, and emotional. She was always afraid to tell people things but now she can step out of her comfort zone.
