LyricsEdit

    Hello me, meet the real me
    And my misfit's way of life
    A dark, black past is my
    Most valued possession
    Hindsight is always 20-20
    But looking back, it's still a bit fuzzy
    Speak of mutually assured destruction?
    Nice story, Tell it to Reader's Digest®!
    
    Feeling paranoid
    True enemy or false friend?
    Anxiety's attacking me
    And my air is getting thin
    I'm in trouble for the things
    I haven't got to yet
    I'm chomping at the bit
    And my palms are getting wet
    Sweating bullets
    
    Hello me, it's me again
    You can subdue, but never tame me
    It gives me a migraine headache
    Sinking down to your level
    Yea, just keep on thinking it's my fault
    And stay an inch or two outta kicking distance
    Mankind has got to know
    His limitations
    
    Feeling paranoid
    True enemy or false friend?
    Anxiety's attacking me
    And my air is getting thin
    I'm in trouble for the things
    I haven't got to yet
    I'm chomping at the bit
    And my palms are getting wet
    Sweating bullets
    
    I hear it in hear...
    Blood stains on my...hands
    The big axe...
    Sweating...
    
    Well, me, it's nice talking to myself
    A credit to dementia
    Some day you too will know my pain
    And smile its "black-tooth grin"
    If the war inside my head
    Won't take a day off I'll be dead
    My icy fingers claw your back
    Here I come again
    
    Feeling paranoid
    True enemy or false friend?
    Anxiety's attacking me
    And my air is getting thin
    
    Feeling claustrophobic
    Like the walls are closing in
    Blood stains on my hands
    And I don't know where I've been
    
    Once you committed me
    Now you've acquitted me
    Claiming validity
    For your stupidity
    I'm chomping at the bit
    I'm sharpening the axe
    Here I come again
    Sweating bullets
