    I can't get this song out of my head! The lyrics are great... Don't know how to post a video on a thread, so here's the link:

    LOL!! Thanks! I believe I might use this in difficult child's re-evaluation meeting at the school! But, I have to say, when my difficult child is in full-blown mania, I don't think he could stay on that path, I think he'd be plowing all over that mountain!

    Are the lyrics written anywhere or is this all ametuer?

    I can't find the lyrics anywhere. The guy has a Myspace page, though. He's a surfer/musician out here in the Los Angeles area.

    I've tried playing the song and stopping it to write down the lyrics, but I'm stuck in a couple of spots where I can't quite make out exactly what he says. But they are dead-on with describing what it must be like to be manic!

    The song was good, but the video gave me a headache LOL

    I did happen to see the other video's at the side, and was mystified by the "Psychology by Sandy" ones. If she is a Psychologist (or one in training), she so needs to make that skirt just a tad longer. Professional looking/sounding from the waist up isn't cutting it and am glad she left her legs crossed during the video

    I make no claims whatsoever about anything else on that site! :p

    If he has a myspace page, could you write to him and ask for the lyrics? If you don't have a myspace page, I could look for his and ask him (I do have a page.... I play this stupid virtual pet game on there every day)

    Here are the messages between Wesley California and me this evening, and the lyrics to Unipolar Mania. He seems like a really nice guy, and if you have a myspace page, add him!

    Hi Jan!

    As long as I'm credited, post away!!! I wouldn't be mad if you steered people toward my myspace, either. The song's posted in video form:)

    (And just so you know, I wrote the song from a combination of research and personal experience. Show me a genius through history and I'll show you a person who was manic, from Da Vinci to Mozart and beyond.)

    Thank you so much! For the lyrics, and for the congratulations. Is it alright for me to post these on a public BB or would you rather I emailed them to the members that want them?

    Your time is very much appreciated!

    What do I do with all this energy
    I'm overloading on activity
    Much too impatient for this glacial pace
    And to intrusive to know my place

    I'm aggressively irritable
    The speed of my mind is uncontrollable
    Endeavors are always shifting
    My style and themes are always drifting

    Unipolar Mania

    It's too easy to distract me
    Achieving focus is beyond me
    I've got a talent with delusion
    It's just a grandiose illusion

    It'll take an army to bring me ‘round
    I wanna mix sleeping with laying down
    My flight of ideas keep speeding up
    My Mountain Dew flows from a golden cup

    Fantastic! Thanks Woofens for contacting him! :D I'm going to play this for difficult child 2 whenever he wakes up today... Too bad I didn't have this for our psychiatrist appointment yesterday -- would have been a kick to share it with the psychiatrist!
