lyrics

do you have the time to listen to me whine
about nothing and everything all at once
i am one of those melodramatic fools 
neurotic to the bone no doubt about it
sometimes i give myself the creeps
sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
it all keeps adding up, i think i'm cracking up
am i just paranoid? i'm just stoned
i went to a shrink to analyze my dreams
she says it's lack of sex that's bringing me down
i went to a whore, he said my life's a bore
and quit my whining cause it's bringing her down
grasping to control, so you better hold on
