"I'm Shakin'" as written by and Robert Schwartzman....
I've forgotten what it feels like to feel normal
To be normal
And I've forgotten what food tastes like
The way it tastes right

The taste buds taste right
Well I wake up in so much spit and sweat
It is not normal
What is normal

I go to bed
When I wake up
After cleaning all
All the spit and sweat

Now I'm now I'm sh sh shakin' sh shakin' I'm
Sh sh shakin' sh shakin' now

I tossed and turned all night
'Cause I, cause I was looking for, for an ending
This was so because, because I watched all day
The "Neverending story" with Atreyu

The next day came but not a beam of light
Because the blinds were shut
Sh sh sh shut so tight
I fell out of bed laced in spit and sweat

It made me very cold
Now I'm now I'm sh sh shakin' sh shakin'
I'm sh sh shakin' sh shakin' now

I'm supposed to feel better
This nightmare supposed to end
I am holding on
I'm shakin' now

    General CommentI first heard this song right after reading an article about someone with an addiction to crystal meth and was like, wow this song describes all of the symptoms that were in the article (trouble sleeping, shaking, food doesn't have taste). So yeah, my thoughts are that it's about drug addiction.

    General CommentI always thought it was about having an extended flu or some similar illness, and just feeling "out of it." Several months ago I had a bad winter flu, and this song pretty much summed up how I felt.

    General Commentatreyu?? i dont get it what is he referring to?
    and i most definitley think he is referring to withdrawls cuz of a drug addiction. It fits all too well. . its crazy how the song seems to have such a light and happy sound yet it seems to be about a subject so intense and not-happy as drug addiction.
