Basket Case, a perfect song for me as I have often asked people to listen to me whine.  Green Day, you’re good.

Basket Case was a song I first heard when I was driving to a job that I hated.  It was funny, I had just finished up a phone conversation with a friend at that time, whining about my job, my lack of girl friend and my overall life.  I hung up, got in my car, turned on 98.9 THE ROCK and this song was the first thing I heard.  It sort of has a way of putting things into perspective.

Only 71 days left…

Lyrics:

Do you have the time
To listen to me whine
About nothing and everything
All at once
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
It all keeps adding up
I think I’m cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
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?
Uh, yuh, yuh, 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?
Am I just stoned?
