Basket Case

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? I'm just stoned 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 And quit my whining cause it's bringing her down Grasping to control So you better hold on


She screams in silence
A silent riot penetrating through her mind
Waiting for a sign to smash the silence with the brick of self-control

Are you locked up in a world that's been planned out for you?
Are you feeling like a social tool without a use?
Scream at me until my ears bleed
I'm taking heed just for you

She's figured out all her doubts were someone else's point of view
Waking up this time to smash the silence with the brick of self-control

When I Come Around

I heard you crying loud All the way across town You been searching for that someone And it's me out on the prowl As you sit around feeling sorry for yourself Well don't get lonely now Dry your whining eyes I'm just roaming for the moment Sleazin my backyard So don't get so uptight you been thinking about ditching me
Chorus: No time to search the world around Cause you know where I'll be found When I come around
I heard it all before So don't knock down my door I'm a loser and a user So I don't need no accuser to try and slag me down Because I know you're right So go do what you'd like Make sure you do it wise You may find out that your self doubt means nothing was ever there You can't go forcing something if it's just not right
(chorus) (instrumental) (chorus)
