"I'm A Panic Bomb, Baby!" as written by and Jeffrey Ernest Rosenstock....
Mom, please wake up.
I can't sleep. My head's fucked.
I need a hug or a drug.
Please decide.

What's up doc?
Do I think of suicide?
In this room, yes I do.
Where's my form?

Now question 38: do you have trouble sleeping late?
Sure, I've got probs sleeping in.
Please pump me full of Klonopin
Mom, doc, stop taking bets
on whether I smoke cigarettes.

Prescribe goggles.
Make it dark all the time.
Go to school. Get beat up.
Go to sleep.

You're so bald.
You don't know about my
Life with hair.
Stop the interrogation.

I'm a panic bomb.
Please step away from me.
Panic bomb. Panic bomb.

Hey, Anne, I really think
You shouldn't tell me I can't drink.
Sorry, John. You're my best friend
I didn't mean to try and kick your ass in the van.
I can't do weekly visits.
Three to six months for results?
Fuck that shit.

I'm a panic bomb.
Please step away from me.
Panic bomb. Panic bomb.

And I know that you're all just trying to help
But I really think you're all just trying to get rich.
I don't need to be addicted to anything else.
I don't need to be addicted to anything else.

    General CommentJeff: Written in a car on a drive home from upstate New York after a blizzard. I initially wanted it to be a part of some other thing I'm writing called "John Starks: Motherfucker" but when I got home, I added it in with some other thing I wrote and recorded on my cell phone and it seemed to work. This song is about my many trips to many doctors, mainly this one bald dude who told me that the best solution for being able to fall asleep at night would be to wear these goggles that look like those huge black sunglasses for old people, the ones that go around your entire head. He told me I should wear them all day through school and they cost like $500. He was also asking really intrusive questions for a dude I just met like "DO YOU LIKE PAIN? DO YOU THINK OF KILLING YOURSELF? HAVE YOU EVER CUT YOURSELF? DO YOU SMOKE? YOUR MOM WANTS TO KNOW IF YOU SMOKE?" I later assumed he was a goggle salesman in a fake office.
