Do you have the time
To listen to whine
About nothing and everything
All at once
I am one of those
Melodramatic fools
Nurotic to the bone no doubt about it

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks one me
And it all keeps adding up
I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid or am I just stoned?

I went to a shrink to analize my dreams
She said it's lack of sex that's bringing me down
I went to a whore she said my lifes a bore
So quite my whinning cause it's bringing her down

Sometimes I give my self the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
And it all keeps adding up
I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Hu hu

Grasping to control!
So I better hold onnnnnnnnnnn!

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
And it all keeps adding up
I think I'm cracking up...
Am I just paranoid or am I just stoooned?

    ps. you missed out the word 'me' in the second line.. the correct phrase would be 'to listen to me whine' - more evidence to prove in my court case that avril lavigne is a mess (and her songs and fans)
