Gotta Get Away

I’m gettin Edgy
All the time.
There’s someone around me
Just a step behind.
It’s kinda scary,
The shape I’m in.
The walls are shakin’
And they’re closing in.
Too fast or
A bit too slow
I’m paranoid of people
And it’s starting to show.
There’s one guy that
I just can’t shake
Over my shoulder
Is a big mistake.

Sitting on the bed
or lying wide awake.
There’s demons in my head
And it’s more than I can take.
I think I’m on a roll
But I think it’s kinda weak.
Saying all I know is
I gotta get away from me

I tell you something
Just ain’t right.
My head is on loose
But my shoes are tight.
Avoiding friends ’cause
They all bug.
Life is like a riddle
And I’m really stumped.
If you reason,
Don’t you know
Your own preoccupation
Is where you’ll go.
I think I’m being followed,
I look around
It’s only my shadow
Creeping on the ground.
