"Walking Paranoia" as written by Paul Meany, Darren King and Roy Mitchell....
I am a nervous wreck
Jesus is coming back
Gonna catch me at the porno rack
I'm about to have a heart attack

Am I on hell's highway
'Cause I'm walking paranoia
I'm walking paranoia

Preachers are on the prowl
And they got me on the TV dial
Say your prayers or burn and rot
Gotta move fast when you're on the spot

Am I on hell's highway
'Cause I'm walking paranoia
I'm walking paranoia
If I'm on hell's highway
Then I'm going there the right way
'Cause I'm walking paranoia
I'm walking paranoia

Better get right or get left

Don't you forget

    My InterpretationI grew up in a religious home, but I often challenged it growing up. My beliefs were constantly evolving, some odd mishmash of the theology I was taught and my own conclusions, reached after dozens of hours of thought. Eventually I let it all go, which was liberating, but it was a very long process.

    Similarly, Paul Meany sung in a religiously-affiliated band, but Mutemath has sued over being associated with religion at all. I think this song, the whole album really, reflects his and the others' evolving beliefs and how these put them out of place, somewhere between their roots and the mainstream.

    In this song they speak of how some of their beliefs haunt them. They wonder if God is watching their sins. Yet they see "preachers on the prowl", preying on the gullibility of masses as religious leaders have for centuries. Finally they embrace their trajectory, proclaiming that if they are going to hell, they're doing it properly.
