Paranoia

When you’re walking down the street
Talking about someone behind their back
Do you look behind you constantly
Just to make sure they’re not there?
When it’s pitch-black at night
And you’re in the kitchen getting a drink
Do you have to sprint past all the windows?
When you’re in a classroom without a teacher
And you want to do something not allowed
Do you have to check the hallway eleven times?
Sure, it’s better to be safe than sorry
But, paranoia will destroy ya.
