#Lyrics Basket Case-Green Day

 

Do you have the time to listen to me whine
About nothing and everything all at once  (Anxiety makes things seem like everything is going on all at once but it comes out like nothing)
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 (Your mind will play tricks on you and make think things are extremely bad)
It all keeps adding up
I think I’m cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
Or am I just stoned
I went to a shrink
To analyze my dreams
She says it’s lack of sex that’s bringing me down
I went to a whore
He said my life’s a bore
So quit my whining cause it’s bringing her down
Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I’m cracking up
Am I just paranoid? (To me the media, the world, even your family wants you to think that you are paranoid, that you’re going crazy. Because having anything wrong with you is not normal…don’t listen to them)
A ya-ya-ya
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 I’m cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
Or am I just stoned?
I don’t remember when this song came out exactly. Of course I can look up the release date. But I mean when it actually came out. I don’t remember it coming on MTV I think I was only like 3. But it is green day
Billie Joe is my spirit animal. Or at least who I would want my spirit animal to be. Hes crazily hot. Hes amazing vocalist. He’s unbelievably talented. And then there are his eyes His beautiful green eyes. They are so damn amazing.
This song was written in regard to panic attacks. Billie Joe suffered them when he was younger. He would walk around his neighbor to calm himself down. The song also compares these types of attacks to being stoned.
It is an upbeat song about what it feels like to have your mind playing tricks on you. It is over 20 years old and this song is still on my playlists. There are just some songs that never get old. And a lot of them are Green Day songs. Yes, I am a huge fan girl of Green day
