Paranoid Insanity

I must be insane
Hear the voices?
Hear them?
Hear them?
Why can I hear them
And you can’t?
They tell me what to do.

I must be insane
See the people?
See them?
See them?
Why can I see them
And you can’t?
They show me the way.

I must be insane
The walls close in
Feel them?
Feel them?
Why can I feel them
And you can’t?
They make me paranoid.

Why must I be the only one
Who hears the Voices
And sees the People
And feels the Walls?
Why can’t I share my paranoia
With you?
