Naming disorder

 

Schizophrenia,

Paranoia,

Bipolar,

Disassociation disorders.

 

Got these names so that life can be understood.

Got to wonder though, if we should.

 

Got a name for all of manís worried lot,

Got a type, got a box.

 

But we also got individuals to tie these names too,

Names that at any time could apply, to me and to you.

 

Got these names, 'psychiatrics disorders.'

Got a whole lot of 'technical people callers.'
