What it's about: schizophrenia


And then it hit me with the side of shovel
Those whispers, the first sign of a struggle
Little men from outer space
Walkin’ out to scroll the trolls to see who knows
They’re out to get me
It’s out to get me
They really get me
Don’t forget me

Make me make me make me sick
Make me make me make me itch
Make me make me make me
Hit me
Make it go away

And I’m twisted and I’m spinning out
There’s too many of you to please
And I play dead because they know I’m alive
Shove me shake me slap me twice
And then it hit me, and then it hit me
They’re out to get me


They come they come they come
they come and they go
Yell yell yell it’s no use
This is some kind of verbal abuse
And I’m hungry for the pain to go
Cuz it’s eating me eating me slow
Too many of you can’t see
Argue all alone and the losers are me
And then hit me
And then hit me


Shut it off
Make it stop
Shut it off
I’m done I’m done I’m done I’m spun
I’m dumb

A punk blues pulpiteer whose holy trinity is Strummer, Ramone, and Thunders. A mysterious stickman with a hardcore soul and a trash can beat. Put 'em together and what do you get? Critical Response. Sound the alarm! ... more
