Lyrics
Do you have the time
To listen to me whine
About nothing and everything
All at once
(Verse 1)
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 (Chorus)
I think I'm crackin up
Am I just parananoid
Am I just stoned
(Bridge)
I went to a shrink
To analyse my dreams
He said it's lack of sex
That's bringin me down
(Verse 2)
I went to a whore
He said my life's a bore
So quit my whinin
Cuz it's bringin her down
(Chorus)
(Bridge)
(Interlude)
(Chorus)
