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
