Panic Attack Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

All wound up on the edge
Terrified
Sleep disturbed restless mind
Petrified

Bouts of fear permeate
All I see
Heightening nervousness
Threatens me

I am paralyzed
So afraid to die

Caught off guard warning signs
Never show
Tension strikes choking me
Worries grow

Why do I feel so numb?
Is it something to do with where I come from?
Should this be fight or flight?
I don't know why I'm constantly so uptight

Rapid heartbeat pounding through my chest
Agitated body in distress
I feel like I'm in danger
Daily life is strangled by my stress

A stifling surge
Shooting through all my veins
Extreme apprehension
Suddenly I'm insane

Lost all hope for redemption
A grave situation desperate at best

Why do I feel so numb?
Is it something to do with where I come from?
Should this be fight or flight?
I don't know why I'm constantly reeling

Helpless hysteria
A false sense of urgency
Trapped in my phobia
Possessed by anxiety

Run
Try to hide
Overwhelmed
By this complex delirium

Helpless hysteria
A false sense of urgency
Trapped in my phobia
Possessed by anxiety

Run
Try to hide
Overwhelmed
By this complex delirium
