I'm getting edgy all the time
There's someone around me just a step behind 
It's kinda scary, the shape I'm in
The walls are shakin' and they're closing in

Too fast or a bit too slow
I'm paranoid of people and it's starting to show
There's one guy that I can't shake 
Over my shoulder is a big mistake 

 Sitting on the bed
Or lying wide awake 
There's demons in my head
And it's more than I can take

[Chorus]
I think I'm on a roll
But I think it's kinda weak
 Saying all I know is
I gotta get away from me

I tell you something just ain't right 
My head is on loose but my shoes are tight  Avoiding my friends cause they all bug
Life is a riddle and I'm really stumped

If you reason, don't you know
Your own preoccupation is where you'll go
I think I'm being followed, I look around 
It's only my shadow creepin' on the ground 

[Chorus]
