Jukebox The Ghost – Schizophrenia lyrics

Yes I can, no I can't,
Yes I can, no I can't,
Yes I can, no I can't,
Yes I can
I swear to it,
That's just how my brain works.

Yes it is, no it isn't,
Yes it is, not it isn't,
Yes it is, no it isn't,
Yes it is
I know that,
I know it sounds absurd but

We first met in the summer of my twenty-second year,
I got scared and they appeared out of thin air.

Here they come, here they come,
Here they come, here they come,
Here they come, here they come,
They're after me.
I don't know anything.

They got guns, they got knives,
They got guns, they got knives,
They got guns, they got knives and spies,
I am no informant.

We first met in the summer of my twenty-second year,
I got scared and they appeared out of thin air...

They knew my name,
They screamed and screamed,
They knew everything.

You could say that I'm well liked
But I'll never be friendless...

You could say that I'm alright
Or you could say schizophrenic...

    Schizophrenia is about an inner battle with one's mind. When someone is diagnosed with schizophrenia, it is usually because they have hallucinations or are hearing voices. In this song, the character says he had his first hallucinations when he was 22. He was scared, mainly because they appeared out of thin air with guns and knives. His hallucinations also knew everything about him; because they were, to put it simply, part of his imagination. He also mentions that he could 'never be friendless', basically saying that his hallucinations will be his friends. Finally nearing the end of the song, he admits that he's schizophrenic.
