[Lyrics]
        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 im cracking up
        am i just paranoid?, im just stoned
                
        i went to a shrink to anylise my dreams
        she said its lack of sex thats bringing me down
        i went to a whore he said my lifes a bore
        and quit my whining cos its bringing her down

        sometimes i give myself the creeps
        sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
        it all keeps adding up 
        i think im cracking up
        am i just paranoid? well i dont know

        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 im cracking up
        am i just paranoid? well i dont know

Or you could leave it on standard tuning and maybe play the chords half a step down. Did you ever think of it that way? Nice job dude and I'm sorry the dumbass who posted before me is sorry
