Song Lyrics

Met a girl called Lola and I took her back to my place

Feelin` guilty, feelin` scared, hidden cameras everywhere

Stop! Hold on. Stay in control

Girl, I want you here with me

But I`m really not as cool as I`d like to be

`Cause there`s a red, under my bed

And there`s a little yellow man in my head

And there`s a true blue inside of me

That keeps stoppin` me, touchin` ya, watchin` ya, lovin` ya

Paranoia, the destroyer.

Paranoia, the destroyer.

Well I fell asleep, then I woke feelin` kinda` queer

Lola looked at me and said, "ooh you look so weird."

She said, "man, there`s really something wrong with you.

One day you`re gonna` self-destruct.

You`re up, you`re down, I can`t work you out

You get a good thing goin` then you blow yourself out."

Silly boy ya` self-destroyer. Silly boy ya` self-destroyer

Silly boy you got so much to live for

So much to aim for, so much to try for

You blowing it all with paranoia

You`re so insecure you self-destroyer

(And it goes like this, here it goes)

Paranoia, the destroyer

(Here it goes again)

Paranoia, the destroyer

Dr. Dr. help me please, I know you`ll understand

There`s a time device inside of me, I`m a self-destructin` man

There`s a red, under my bed

And there`s a little green man in my head

And he said, "you`re not goin` crazy, you`re just a bit sad

`Cause there`s a man in ya, knawin` ya, tearin` ya into two."

Silly boy ya` self-destroyer.

Paranoia, the destroyer

Self-destroyer, wreck your health

Destroy your friends, destroy yourself

The time device of self-destruction

Light the fuse and start eruptin`

(Yea, it goes like this, here it goes)

Paranoia, the destroyer

(Here`s to paranoia)

Paranoia, the destroyer

(Hey hey, here it goes)

Paranoia, the destroyer

(And it goes like this)

Paranoia, the destroyer

(And it goes like this.)
