The “Lunatics have taken over the asylum”


“The Thinker” by Eriberto Oriol

Have you ever wonder if the “Lunatics have taken over the asylum” and we are now left just dancing with Madmen?

A predator’s mind is full of fear and insecurity. They can find no peace in a state of flux so they thrive on feeding its victims more of the unknown to control and to take away the right to speak.

The uncertainty goes up with every breaking news story and unanswered question. It all adds to the stress and anxiety of our collective mind. Yes, the “Lunatics have taken over the asylum” and we are now left dancing with Madmen.

This photo is called“The Thinker.” It was taken of one of the public restrooms right in the heart of downtown San Diego, Horton Plaza and known as “America’s Finest City.”

The title of the photo was taken from the most important sculptor of the modern era François Auguste René Rodin sculpture, “The Thinker.”

Lyrics of the song below.

Fun Boy Three music group popularize the song The Lunatics Have Taken Over The Asylum from 1981 to 1983 and the attribution to Rowland is reported to have occurred at least as early as 1926, in the work A Million and One Nights by Terry Ramsaye.

“The Lunatics have taken over the asylum” Lyrics

I see a clinic full of cynics
Who wants to twist the peoples’ wrist
They’re watching every move we make
We’re all included on the list

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum

No nuclear the cowboy told us
And who am I to disagree
‘Cause when the madman flips the switch
The nuclear will go for me

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum

I’ve seen the faces of starvation
But I just can not see the point
‘Cause there’s so much food here today
That no one wants to take away

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum, take away my right to choose

The lunatics have taken over the asylum, take away my point of view
The lunatics have taken over the asylum

The lunatics have taken over the asylum, take away my dignity
Take these things away from me

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum, take away my family

Take away the right to speak
The lunatics have taken over the asylum take away my point of view

Take away my right to choose
