  • Lyrics: I saw a square cloud It was a perfect square I never mentioned it out loud Maybe I wasn’t even really there Everybody is so annoyed Walking around in their peculiar days Either schizophrenic or paranoid Living beneath that purple haze Where the waves of fear are crashing over you It’s a panic in your imagination Next thing you know it’s a phobia Personality skips a generation You’ve been on your own for all these years Living inside your little room Filling up your closets with all your fears Now you’ve got no place to put your broom You walk down the street and people look at you They might think you’re pretty strange Let ‘em walk on by they haven’t got a clue Nasty habits are so hard to change In the spiral decline of a phobia Personality skips a generation Waves of fear crashing over you It’s a panic in your imagination I’m not afraid of cats I’m not afraid of the number thirteen I am afraid of rats, but it’s not a phobia I only care if my hands aren’t always clean Stare into the sun I double dare you Believe it or not living is really fun Even if those little things scare you Toss a stone and watch the ripple Circular logic is to blame Fear just makes you a cripple I bet your Grandma was just the same In the spiral decline of a phobia Personality skips a generation Waves of fear crashing over you It’s a panic in your imagination I saw a square cloud It was a perfect square In the spiral decline of a phobia Personality skips a generation Waves of fear crashing over you It’s a panic in your imagination In the spiral decline of a phobia Personality skips a generation
