"Anxiety" as written by and Dave Buckner Will Adams....
I feel like I wanna smack somebody
Turn around and bitch slap somebody
But I ain't goin' out bro
(No, no, no)
I ain't givin' into it
(No, no, no)
Anxiety bashed my mind in
Terrorizing my soul like Bin Laden
But I ain't fallin' down bro
(No, no, no)
I ain't givin in to it
(No, no, no)
Shackled in chains
My soul feels stained
I can't explain
Got a itch on my brain
Lately my whole brain
Lately my whole aim is to maintain
And regain control of my mainframe
My blood's boilin' it's beatin' out propane
My train of thoughts more like a runaway train
I'm in a fast car drivin' in the fast lane
In the rain and I might just hydroplane

[Chorus:]
I don't fear none of my enemies
And I don't fear bullets from uzi's
I've been dealin' with somethin' that's worse then these
That'll make ya' fall to your knees
And that's the...

Anxiety
The sane and the insane rivalry
Paranoia's brought me to my knees
Lord please, please, please
Take away my anxiety
The sane and the insane rivalry
Paranoia's brought me to my knees
Lord please, please, please
Take away my anxiety

My head keeps runnin' away my brother
The only thing makin' me stay my brother
But I won't give into it bro (No, no, no)
Gotta get myself back now
God I can't let my mind be trapped by enemies
My own
Got's to find my inner wealth
Grasp a hold of my thoughts
I can't get lost
I can't give into it now (No, no, no)
Emotions are trapped on lock
Got my brain stuck
Going through the motions
Only I know what's up
I'm filled up with pain tryin' to gain my sanity
Everywhere I turn it's embedded in front of me
Nowhere to go gotta shake this anxiety
Got me feelin' strange
Paranoia took over me
And it's weighin' me down
And I can't run any longer
Knees to the ground

[Chorus]

    General CommentGO SKA!!!!! I like all kinda of music exept country, and i love the black eyed peas. When i'm all paranoid, and what not, this song seems to expakin exactly what i'm feeling.
    I think in this song, they're telling about how freaky the world is now-a-days. Like when he says "Terrorizing my soul like Bin Laden" and "And I don't fear bullets from Uzi's". I just think the meaning to this whole song is to just "bitch slap" someone into seeing how scary the world can be.

    "My bloods boiling its beatin' out propaine
    My train of thought's more like a runaway train
    I'm in a fast car drivin' in a fast lane
    In the rain and I'm might just hydroplane"

    Then i think he's trying to be brave by saying
    "I don't fear none of my enemies
    And I don't fear bullets", but then contridicting himself by saying
    Paranoias brought me to my knees
    Lord please please please
    Take away my anxiety
    The sane and the insane rivalry
    Paranoias brought me to my knees
    Lord please please please
    Take away my anxiety"

    So my conclusion is that he's trying to get people to see how freaky the world is now, and sometimes we dont realize how scary it really can be. The eerie-ness of it seems to call out a warning. We're living in a weird world, and things like "1000 people dead" that are on the news have become almost normal. These things aren't normal and are signs that are world is changing possible for the worse.

    This is just how i picture the song, espeically after i read the lyrics carefully.

    General CommentTo me, this song is talking about anxiety and just the feeling of having really bad anxiety for whatever reason. I don't know if anyone can relate, but I'm dealing with some anxiety problems now, and the lyrics say exactly how I feel. I love this song.

    General CommentYeah, it's obviously about having some kind of anxiety disorder. It's a frickin awful feeling, like being jacked up on caffeine for hours on end. There's nothing worse than getting 'the fear', and that's what the song is about.

    Hope you feel better soon, fivergirl.

    General Commenti love this song! i reckon they're basically saying that the thing that they fear most and the thing that can ruin you is coming from the inside (ie. anxiety) rather than from external sources such as uzi's or terrorists. awesome awesome song...papa roach was an excellent choice i reckon ;) =P

    General CommentThis song to me is about anxiety consuming you. anxiety controls you from he inside.. one of the worst feelins in the world. Factors from the outside world can influence you to I.E bin laden
