What's wrong with me?
Why do I feel like this?
I'm going crazy now

No more gas, in the red, can't even get it started
Nothing heard, nothing said, can't even speak about it
On my life, on my head, don't wanna think about it
Feels like I'm going insane, yeah

It's a thief in the night to come and grab you
It can creep up inside you and consume you
A disease of the mind, it can control you
It's too close for comfort

Put on your brake lights, you're in the city of wonder
Ain't gon' play nice, watch out you might just go under
Better think twice, your train of thought will be altered
So if you must falter be wise

Your mind's in disturbia, it's like the darkness is light
Disturbia, am I scaring you tonight?
Disturbia, ain't used to what you like
Disturbia, disturbia

Faded pictures on the wall, it's like they talking to me
Disconnecting, no one calls, the phone don't even ring
I gotta get out or figure this sh** out
It's too close for comfort, oh

It's a thief in the night to come and grab you
It can creep up inside you and consume you
A disease of the mind it can control you
I feel like a monster, oh

Put on your pretty lies, you're in the city of wonder
Ain't gon' play nice, watch out you might just go under
Better think twice, your train of thought will be altered
So if you must falter be wise

Your mind's in disturbia, it's like the darkness is light
Disturbia, am I scaring you tonight?
Disturbia, ain't used to what you like
Disturbia, disturbia, disturbia

Release me from this curse I'm in
Trying to maintain but I'm struggling
If you can't go-o-o
I think I'm gonna ah, ah, ah, ah

Put on your pretty lies, you're in the city of wonder
Ain't gon' play nice, watch out you might just go under
Better think twice, your train of thought will be altered
So if you must falter be wise

Disturbia, it's like the darkness is light
Disturbia, am I scaring you tonight?
Disturbia, ain't used to what you like
Disturbia, disturbia

    It deeply explains the feelings you have when something happens and you don't know how to react to the situation. You become in denial of the situation and try to seek the truth but all questions remain unanswered. Thats why nothing makes sense thus leading yourself into confusion and anguish. Which is the theme of the song.

    This is a song about a girl who has insanity problems, probably caused by drugs. She's going mad and this "Disturbia" just came out of her head, a place/disease where she can't escape out of whatever she does. There are a lot of questions she can't find the answers and makes her drown in confusion.

    This song is so amazing. Whoever wrote it was a genius and it was even better 'coz it's Rihanna who's singing it. This song is perfectly written, sung, and played. The tune makes a scary appeal to the listeners and still it makes you wanna party.

    to me, this song means that sometimes you feel like your going crazy. and honestly sometimes that happenes. your life is not always perfect. you, yourself in life has many hard opsticles. i feel that everyone can relate to this song. because eventhough we dont like to admite it we all go crazy sometimes. but for me, admitting how we feel only makes us human

    Well, not that I'm necessarily disagreeing with the whole drug assessment thing, but I have another possible scenario. I know at one point during my life after my father died, I was dealing with very deep grief and depression issues, and felt as though I was losing my sanity at times, and how alluring falling into that darkness of insanity really was. So, possibly depression, grief, or suicidal thinking/beginnings of insanity, or a combination of these could be the meaning of this song. I can so easily see this song about my own past struggles. Just my two cents.
