I close my eyes to sleep
But sleep don't come around
I am the one who is never alone
I am the one who is not in control
'Cos

I got the worm
I got the worm
I got the worm

The truth don't mean much to me
Since my mind took a ride
Mummy and Daddy think I'm possessed
But all the kids know I am simply obsessed
'Cos

I got the worm
I got the worm
I got the worm

    General CommentIt's about having OCD.

    David has mentioned in interviews that he used to have obsessive-compulsive tendencies, and that 'the worm' is that constant, nagging need to follow a compulsion.
    He is 'not in control' of his actions, because the worm is always around. His parents think he's possessed, but he just has obsessions.
