Yeah he's with me all the time
Someone around me just a step behind
It's kinda scary the shape I'm in
Walls are shakin' and they're closin' in
Too fast or a bit too slow
Paranoid people and it's startin' to show
One guy in the alley I can't shake
Lookin' over my shoulder is a big mistake

Sitting on the bed
Or lying wide awake
There's demons in my head
And it's more than I can take
I think I'm on a roll
But I think it's kinda weak
Saying all I know is
I gotta get away from me

Tell you somethin' just ain't right
My head is all loose but my shoes are tight
But my friends they all bugged
Life is like a riddle and I'm really stumped
There's a reason don't you know
Proper preoccupation is the way you go
You're being followed look around
It's only the shadow creepin' on the ground
See you in your bed lyin' wide awake
This dream is in my head and it's more than I can take
Think I'm on a roll but I think it's gotta wait
Sayin' all I know is I gotta get away from me
Gotta get away from me
Gotta get away from me

See you in your bed lyin' wide awake
This dream is in my head and it's more than I can take
Think I'm on a roll but I think it's gotta wait
Sayin' all I know is I gotta get away from me
Gotta get away from me
Gotta get away from me
Gotta get away from me
