"Astoria Paranoia" as written by and Christopher John Cheney....
Is there something going on around me
Is there something I should know?
The ghost of paranoia slips into my mind
And the dust it settles in

It's getting harder to remember
Just what it is I need to say
Another shadow in the memory
I'll never be the same again

So tell me where the fire is
And why is everybody running
For all I know I could be losing my mind
And the dust it settles in

Whoa lost inside my mind

Is there something going on around me
Is there something I should know?
Everything just seems to vanish in the haze
And the dust it settles in

Whoa lost inside my mind

In my head long to shed
Now we all are one

Whoa lost inside my mind
Inside my mind

    General Commentwell, i love this song so much i wrote it all down my arms yesterday in black fine liner. basically, it's about this guy who's paraniod, maybe has some kind of mental disease, and it kinda distant from the rest of the world "lost inside his mind". whatever it is, i love this song so much! i love singing it on the roof in the middle of the night!

    General CommentI think it's just a song about someone feeling paranoid about something in general, not necessarily someone who has a mental illness. They're so caught up in their fear and paranoia that they feel as if they've glazed over (maybe that the 'ghost of paranoia' has covered their vision) and can't feel everything as sharply as everyone else does, so they feel isolated.
