GETO BOYS - My Mind Playin' Tricks On Me lyrics

rate me

I sit alone in my four-cornered room staring at candles

"Cool out man, we in the Radio dukes"

We're in the Radio dukes


Ooh, alright, check this here

At night I can't sleep, I toss and turn

Candlesticks in the dark, visions of bodies bein' burned

Four walls closin' in gettin' bigger

I'm paranoid, sleepin' with my finger on the trigger

My mother's always stressin' I ain't livin' right

But I ain't going out without a fight

See, everytime my eyes close

I start sweatin' and blood starts comin' out my nose

There's somebody watchin' the Ack'

But I don't know who it is, so I'm watchin' my back

I can see him when I'm deep in the covers

When I awake I hear a call burnin' rubber

He owns a black hat like I own

A black suit and a cane like my own

Some might say, "Take a chill, B"

But I can't G, cause there's somebody trying to kill me

I'm poppin' in the clip when the wind blows

Every twenty seconds got me peepin' out my window

Investigatin' the joint for traps

Checkin' my telephone for taps

I'm starin' at the woman on the corner

It's messed up, when your mind is playin' tricks on you

I make big money, I drive big cars

Everybody know me, it's like I'm a movie star

But late at night, somethin' ain't right

I feel I'm being tailed by the same sucker's head lights

Is it that fool that I ran off the block?

Or is it that clown last week that I shot?

Or is it the one I beat for five thousand dollars

Thought he had caine but it was Gold Medal Flour

Reach under my seat, grabbed my popper for the suckers

Ain't no use to me lyin, I was scareder than a mother*****

Hooked a left into Pop eye's and bailed out quick

If it's goin' down, let's get this shit over with

Here they come, just like I figured

I got my hand on the chrome play the trigger

What I saw'll make your ass start gigglin'

Three black crippled and crazy senior citizens

I live by the sword

I take my boys everywhere I go, because I'm paranoid

I keep lookin' over my shoulder and peepin' around corners

My mind is playin' tricks on me

Day by day it's more impossible to cope

I feel like I'm the one that's doing dope

Can't keep a steady hand because I'm nervous

Every Sunday mornin' I'm in service

Prayin' for forgiveness

And tryin' to find an exit out the business

I know the Lord is lookin' at me

But yet and still it's hard for me to feel happy

I often drift while I drive

Havin' fatal thoughts of suicide

BANG and get it over with

And then I'm worry-free, but that's nonsense

I got a little boy to look after

And if I died then my child would be a bastard

I had a woman down with me

But to me it seems like she was down to get me

She helped me out in this

But to me she was just another chick

Now she's back with her mother

Now I'm realizing that I love her

Now I'm feelin' lonely

My mind is playin' tricks on me

This year Halloween fell on a weekend

Me and Geto Boys are trick-or-treatin'

Robbin' little kids for bags

Till an old man got behind our rags

So we speeded up the pace

Took a look back, and he was right before our face

He'd be in for a squabble no doubt

So I swung and and tried to take him out

He was goin' down, we planned

But this wasn't no ordinary man

He stood about six or seven feet

Now, that's the creep I'd be seein' in my sleep

So we triple-teamed on him

Droppin' them 5th ward B's on him

The more I swung the more blood flew

Then he disappeared and my boys disappeared too

Then I felt just like a fiend

It wasn't even close to Halloween

It was dark as death on the streets

My hands were all bloody from punchings on the concrete

God damn, homie

My mind is playin' tricks on me
