I feel like I wanna smack somebody
Turn around and ***** slap somebody
But I ain't goin' out bro
(No, no, no)
I ain't givin' into it
(No, no, no)
Anxiety bashed my mind in
Terrorizing my soul like Bin Laden
But I ain't fallin' down bro
(No, no, no)
I ain't givin in to it
(No, no, no)
Shackled in chains
My soul feels stained
I can't explain
Got a itch on my brain
Lately my whole brain
Lately my whole aim is to maintain
And regain control of my mainframe
My blood's boilin' it's beatin' out propane
My train of thoughts more like a runaway train
I'm in a fast car drivin' in the fast lane
In the rain and I might just hydroplane

I don't fear none of my enemies
And I don't fear bullets from uzi's
I've been dealin' with somethin' that's worse then these
That'll make ya' fall to your knees
And that's the...

The sane and the insane rivalry
Paranoia's brought me to my knees
Lord please, please, please
Take away my anxiety
The sane and the insane rivalry
Paranoia's brought me to my knees
Lord please, please, please
Take away my anxiety

My head keeps runnin' away my brother
The only thing makin' me stay my brother
But I won't give into it bro (No, no, no)
Gotta get myself back now
God I can't let my mind be trapped by enemies
My own
Got's to find my inner wealth
Grasp a hold of my thoughts
I can't get lost
I can't give into it now (No, no, no)
Emotions are trapped on lock
Got my brain stuck
Going through the motions
Only I know what's up
I'm filled up with pain tryin' to gain my sanity
Everywhere I turn it's embedded in front of me
Nowhere to go gotta shake this anxiety
Got me feelin' strange
Paranoia took over me
And it's weighin' me down
And I can't run any longer
Knees to the ground
