I lay down every night
but I can’t get no rest
cos it starts spinning in my brain
and then it’s pounding in my chest

What if I wasted all my youth
What if I wasted growing up
What if I wasted my whole life
oh man
I’d feel like throwing up it’s an
Anxiety attack
An anxiety attack
I’ve got a bad case of the horrors and at night it comes back

Cos first I look back at my week
and then I look back at my year
and then I’m terrified to speak
and then I’m paralysed with fear

And I’m tossing and I’m turning
and I’m going round the bend
all I see is all my failings
downward spirals without end

and I see horror in the in the future
and I see horror in the past
and its 4 am and 5 am and 6 am at last

Cos what if I never feel grown up
and I end in a car accident
and what if I go crazy
and what if this time it’s permanent

And what if I go broke
and have to move back with my parents
and then what if I get cancer
and I ain’t got no insurance

All my days are moving faster
and it’s making me feel dizzy
how come I get nothing done
but always feel so busy

And I used to feel so smart you know
I used to feel so strong
but this just can’t be how to live
I must be doing something wrong

Because everything I might do
feels like something else I can’t
and then another day is gone
and I just don’t know where it went

I try not to hang too much try not to watch too much television
But still everything I do just seems to be the wrong decision

And I lay down every night
but still I can’t get no rest
cos it starts spinning in my brain
and then it’s pounding in my chest
it’s an
Anxiety attack
an Anxiety attack
I ’ve got a bad case of the horrors
and at night it comes back...




whatever kind of day you might be having, take comfort in the fact that it is probably not as bad as Jeffrey Lewis's...
