"All Messed Up" as written by Deryck Jason Whibley, Dave Baksh and Greig Andrew Nori....
Another day wasted out of time
I can't get out of this
Altered state of mind
I'm going overboard
My conscience meets decline
Into Reality
I know this can't be fine

Cause I'm all messed up
Making prefect nonsense
Drowning in my doubt too well
Cause I'm all messed up
Going nowhere fast but circles in my mind
So blind

Who are these voices in my head
I can't go on like this
Living like the dead
I haven't slept so long
Feeling sad I dread
I'm talking to myself
Forgot what I just said

Cause I'm all messed up
Making prefect nonsense
Drowning in my doubt too well
Cause I'm all messed up
Going nowhere fast but circles in my mind
So blind

Well I hold my only enemy as closely as a friend
And I sold my own reality to further my descent

Self-destruction taking over it's so eay to pretend
Introduction to this nightmare may never end

Can anyone help me drag my heels
I'm running overtime
I can't hold down my meals
My mind is racing by
Staring blankly feels
Like pulling out my teeth
While this engine winds

    General CommentI have panic disorder (or panic attacks if you don't find it by the other name... geez, English is not my mother language), and this are pretty much many of the sympthoms. I've been sick from this since 2006 >_>

    Wouldn't be surprised if the writer didn't do drugs but suffered of this when he write this song, who knows.

    General CommentAlthough drugs may have contributed to his feelings, I think this is more along the lines of anxiety and (as armx phrased it) some sort of panic disorder. I know that he suffers from it off and on, and this really doesn't ring to me as any sort of bad trip or aftershcok of abuse (and I would know) so much as a universal feeling an modern anxiety and day-to-day complications of life.
