Do you have the time,
To listen to me whine.
About nothing and everything,
All at once.
I am one of those,
Melodramatic fools.
Neurotic to the bone,
No doubt about it.

Sometimes I give myself the creeps,
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me.
It all keeps adding up,
I think I'm cracking up.
Am I just paranoid?
Or am I just disturbed.

I went to a shrink,
To analyze my dreams.
She says it's lack of sex,
That's bringing me down.
I went to a whore,
He said my life's a bore.
So quit my whining cause,
It's bringing her down.

Sometimes I give myself the creeps,
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me.
It all keeps adding up,
I think I'm cracking up.
Am I just paranoid?
Or am I stoned?

Grasping to control,
So I better hold on.

Sometimes I give myself the creeps,
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me.
It all keeps adding up,
I think I'm cracking up.
Am I just paranoid?
Or am I stoned?

    The first time I heard the song, it really catches my attention and ignite my interest in punk rock. For me its about an individual suffering from lack of self control, paranoid, maybe lack of self-esteem, mistrust or anything that has to do with self. And the question in the line "do you have a time to listen to me whine? " is a question asking for help that if the 2nd person could listen and maybe give some advice to the I persona. -tikyo.
