Mild Neurosis
=========


Mild neurosis is touching my soul
I just want to know, did I turn off the stove?
Could I control my symptoms with only Ambien?
If one is effective then what about ten?

Chorus:
It's time I came out from behind these potted plants.
I count the hours till I'll see you, so I don't have to guess (again).
Obsessive Obsession, Obsession, Obsess,
Mild neurosis is a frustrating mess

Mild neurosis is touching my mind
one hand wash the other, again and again
After 27 tries you would think they were clean
Used to think I was shy, now I try to blend in

I'd rather have a syndrome but it won't [ quite ] qualify
since it barely detracts from my quality of life (overall).
mom liked you best, and I so I self-diagnose:
Mild neurosis. I'll just increase my dose.

Alternate version:

If one is effective, then what's wrong with ten?

From mild neurosis there is no escape
(first) right hand washes left one, then left washes right
after rinse, repeat, then lather, you'd think they'd be clean
Used to think I was shy, now I try to blend in.

I'd rather have a syndrome but it won't [quite] qualify
since it barely detracts from my quality of life.
mom liked you best, so I self-diagnose:
Mild neurosis. I'll just increase my dose.

For you I would step out in front of potted plants.
I count the hours till I'll see you, so I don't have to guess (again).
Obsessive Obsession, Obsession, Obsess,
Mild neurosis is a frustrating mess
