The Patient Mental Lyrics
Just as I am,
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,...

Patient just as I am , as always watching the time go by - he's doing the recommended thing patience. As he is patient it's not working waiting for a good outcome. He kills the words before they make a sentence . A sentence that is carefully analyzed by others when it's his significance behind the sentence." judgment "Meaning he rather not talk . Kill the feel before they can consume . Take pain to receive no pain. Meaning hurting yourself so when pain comes at you , you don't feel it. A sence of preparness or readiness.Tired of being judged while he obeys the rules . He's a good person while people question and judge him . A cycle of repeate waiting for a good thing to happen but never comes . The light drivin in me - special , honorable and sad to hear .

In my opinion, or basically, my interpretation...is that he, the singer, felt like he was really going mad or just crazy, because of stress and all. I think that makes sense, he felt like a mental patient, or Patient Mental. This really is a pretty underrated Mudvayne song, in my opinion. The bass is strong in this one.

The orator (The Patient) has gone to such depths of insanity that he knows not why he is in such a place (a mental institution), why they observe him, not understanding that they are trying to cure him.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
