Maybe, it's the patterns that make me that made me...crazy

from The Roots – Radio Daze Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

As Albert Einstein famously said, insanity is “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”

The mindless routine of modern life, that Blu mentioned earlier, might be driving people insane

The way Blu raps this line is interesting — he pauses before the final word as if to trick the listener into thinking he means that the routines of his life are what defines his personality — when really he means they drive him insane
