Nobody likes to talk about Schzophrenia, not even the band. But it strikes 1 in 100 people, and that means you probably know someone who has it. This song is an angry little ditty about the disease.
This song is an alternate to "Jeremy". They share the same music (only the vocal track is different). But that vocal track is so different, it even has different words.
Schzophrenia rarely has anything to do with "split personality", so the next time you can't make up your mind, please don't say that you're being schizophrenic.
Life was great when I was a kid I played with friends and did what they did Now I sit alone on the skid Voices tell me what to do They mostly make more sense than you You talk too fast I get confused I'm schizophrenic, can't think Thoughts wash over me and don't link They got it wrong on your TV Its not a split personality My head keeps buzzing like a bee Who can I turn to in my void When people treat me like a droid Some days, with pills, I feel quite buoyed I'm schizophrenic, can't think Thoughts wash over me and don't link Guitar Solo I'm schizophrenic, can't think Thoughts wash over me and don't link The mental ward is no great prize But in it, calming routine lies But they deinstitutionalize There's no more funds to sickness treat I'll never get back on my feet Suffering millions on the street
