* "The Mind Electric" by Joe Hawley. See how the brain plays around...

** Music/TheWho did this long before ''Quadrophenia'' with the John-Entwistle-penned "Whiskey Man." It's all about a guy who has an imaginary friend and ends up locked in a mental hospital for it.

Added DiffLines:

* The very track "Electra Heart" itself is an entire Sanity Slippage song, which makes sense when you consider how it's the song that leads up to the moment when Electra breaks down and proceeds to commit suicide.

* {{Music/MarinaAndTheDiamonds}}'s "The Family Jewels" album contains a lot of these.
** "Mowgli's Road" is perhaps the most notorious, along with "Oh No!" and "Guilty".

** Finn's song "Baby's Building A Tower Into Space", which he sings as he [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin builds a tower to space]] so he can find his father and rip his arm off.

* "[[https://youtu.be/QF7g3rCnD-w?t=44m28s Running the Whole Machine]]" from ''Theatre/Portal2TheUnauthorizedMusical'' is the song [[spoiler: Wheatley]] sings after [[spoiler: taking control of Aperture]]. He's already DrunkWithPower from the start of the song, but when he [[spoiler: reveals he wants to keep Chell inside to preform tests for him]], he goes of the deep end ''fast''. And when [=GLaDOS=] insults him one final time at the end of the song, his last shred of sanity disppears as well.

* ''Soul Inside'' by Music/SoftCell:
-->And the beat of my heart
-->Marks the passing of time
-->And I just wanna scream to the sky
-->There are times when my mind is an explosion of feelings
-->I'm trying to hold on to the soul inside

* "No Good Deed" from Theatre/{{Wicked}} could be a prime example as it is a song about Elphaba rocketing through the 7 stages of grief before her sanity shatters like glass around 3/4 of the way through, ending with her succumbing to the title and guise of "[[TheWizardOfOz Wicked Witch of the West]]."

* "Off to the Henhouse" from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RT4d7CeQmfQ Episode Three]] of ''WebAnimation/OfWeaselsAndChickens''. In this song, Prima, a psychotic weasel, sings about the wonders of killing chickens.
-->''We’re off to the henhouse, Marcus! That’s where we’ll get our food.\\
It’s a long process, fun, regardless – and the killing feels so good!\\
Screams filling all my senses, chickens helpless, defenseless,\\
Why, it really sends a thrill when innocent blood I spill!''

* JD in ''Theatre/{{Heathers}}'' has "Meant To Be Yours". We know before this that he's not entirely sane, but there was always a little bit of hope holding out, in songs like "Seventeen". This song, with its violent outbursts, terrifying lyrics, and crazy time signature changes makes sure it's painfully obvious just how far gone JD is.
