Basket Case – Green Day!

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 stoned?

I went to a shrink, to analyze my dreams
She said 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? Ah, yeah, yeah, yeah

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 just stoned?
