PARANOID Lyrics

by Rehab

Come on, come on, come on, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You turn away when I come around
I ain't even looked at you
when I look at you , you look down
look crazy, tell me who are you?
I get this shit 'cause when I hear a sound
Brooks, "Kill everybody"
people talkin' in my head, I hear 'em screamin', want to shut 'em down
and everyday I run away
but I don't know where I'm goin'
end up back where I stay
givin' up, brain overflowin'
disarray, pain, dismay
I'm in a lot of pain, for sure
I call my momma but she told me take a Tegritol and go away
I write shit on the wall
but it doesn't make any sense
God's gonna kill you all
If you are, no he isn't
pop another Rispidol
or maybe I should take four
I put my head through a mirror and nobody seemed to care at all
back from another bender
but I don't know when I'm comin' off
threw the T.V. through the window
honey, can you turn it off?
ask my girl, "where's my fuckin' dinner?"
lucky I'm even here
she told me, "make it for yourself!"
and then she hit me with a blender
Just because you're paranoid does not mean the whole world ain't against you
if you had to stand alone I'd bet you'd bring a friend to keep you
company, and I understand
I'm scared as you are and
I swear to god my mind's workin' against me
killin' me, killin' me, killin' me, killin' me
Chest tight, shallow breath, scared to death, cottonmouth
nervous, takin' sweaters and devils' inside me kickin' his way outta me
lie to me, tell me I'm normal and beggin' me
and now could it be the way I'm livin'
I got me thinkin' everybody's after me, so casually
these strangers be starin' when they passin' me
and I get the feeling they know I only work half the week
and I'm just waitin' for one of these sorry son of a bitches to laugh at me
so I can let the demon preceed and bleed
I've been geekin' 3 weeks and I need some peace
this razzamatazz and pizzazz, has like I'm Alcatraz
dire for getting me higher, shows like the wires on my tires
having a panic attack in the back of a Cadillac on crack
what's the fact, what the fuck, how to act
I'm feelin' stuck, what if it fades to black
Just because you're paranoid does not mean the whole world ain't against you
if you had to stand alone I'd bet you'd bring a friend to keep you
company, and I understand
I'm scared as you are and
I swear to god my mind's workin' against me
killin' me, killin' me, killin' me, killin' me
But I really gotta wonder why
your head is in the way
no matter what I do I can't die
I'll try it anyway
no matter what I do I ain't high
speed, Special-K
so I'm coppin' me a bird and stick it in my mouthâ?¦bye, bye
Brookie, don't do that
that's what I'm shootin' for
or at least get it on that
record label whore
before you do that
just release the album
so we can make a million dollars off you just to buy a Cadillac
Just because you're paranoid does not mean the whole world ain't against you
if you had to stand alone I'd bet you'd bring a friend to keep you
company, and I understand
I'm scared as you are and
I swear to god my mind's workin' against me
killin' me, killin' me, killin' me, killin' me
Just because you're paranoid does not mean the whole world ain't against you
if you had to stand alone I'd bet you'd bring a friend to keep you
company, and I understand
I'm scared as you are man
I swear to god my mind's workin' against me
killin' me, killin' me, killin' me, killin' me
Please release this fear from me
wherefore art thou sanity?
bleeding joy, I have no skin
turn off the noise, I'm cavin' in
I cry and pray, I lay awake
could someone please just make it go away
Just because you're paranoid does not mean the whole world ain't against you
if you had to stand alone I'd bet you'd bring a friend to keep you
company, and I understand
I'm scared as you are and
I swear to god my mind's workin' against me
killin' me, killin' me, killin' me, illin' me

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
