Panic Attack

Lyrics by: John Petrucci
Music by: Dream Theater
Notes: Pretty self-explanitory. A song about having a panic attack.

All wound up
On the edge
Terrified
Sleep disturbed
Restless mind
Petrified
Bouds of fear
Permeate
All I see
Heightening
Nervousness
Theatens me

I am paralyzed
So afraid to die

Caught off guard
Warning signs
Never show
Tension strikes
Jokingly
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 dont know why i'm constantly so uptight

rapid heartbeat pounding through my chest
agitated body in distress
i feel like im in danger
daily life is strangled by my stress
a stifling surge shooting through all my veins
extreme aprehension and 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 dont 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
conflicts delerium

helpless hysteria
a false sense of urgency
trapped in my phobia
possessed by anxiety

run, try to hide
overwhelmed by this
conflicts delerium
