More Weird Cabaret research...also been digging through my old art folder for a 'madness' project I did some time ago...too big to scan unfortunately...all on A1-ish paper!!

Index of English and Welsh Lunatic Asylums and Mental Hospitals
Based on a comprehensive survey in 1844, and extended to other asylums.

The Lunatics Have Taken Over The Asylum
Fun Boy Three

i see a clinic full of cynics
who want 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
'cos 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 points
'cos 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 awaythe right to speak
the lunatics have taken over the asylum take away my point of view, takeaway my right to choose

Re:

You're welcome. Theatre and film were my first loves, aside from reading. It's always nice when somebody else has those interests too. I never have been one for acting on stage, but I do enjoy the technical side of the work. :)

Freaky freaky stuff! I've just dug this one out recently whilst compliling a CD of 'inspirational' stuff to listen to while I work.

Brilliant song!
