I'm getting edgy all the time
There's someone around just a step behind
It's kinda scary, the shape I'm in
The walls are shakin' and they're closing in

Too fast or a bit slow
I'm paranoid of people and it's starting to show
There's one guy that I can't shake
Over my shoulder is a big mistake

Sitting on the bed
Or lying wide awake
There's demons in my head
And it's no more than I can take

I think it's kinda weak
Saying all I know is
I gotta get away from me
I tell you something just ain't right

My head is on loose but my shoes are tight
Avoiding my friends cause they all bug
Life is like a riddle and I'm really stumped
If you reason, don't you know

Your own preoccupation is where you'll go
I think I'm being followed, I look around
It's only my shadow creepin' on the ground
