Paranoid (Live)


Finished with my woman ‘cause she couldn’t help me with my mind.
People think I’m insane because I am frowning all the time.

All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy.
Think I’ll lose my mind if I don’t find something to pacify.
Can you help me? Are you for my brain, Oh, yeah.

I need someone to show me the things in life that I can’t find.
I can’t see the things that make true happiness, I must be blind.

Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry.
Happiness I cannot feel so love to me is so unreal.

And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state,
I tell you to enjoy life. I wish I could but it’s too late.
