lyrics

I wash my hands a hundred times
To get rid of the dirt and grime
But even when I know they're clean
I go back and I do it again
Cause I can't get the thought out of my head
That the germs that I touch are gonna strike me down dead
Cause I've got obsessive-compulsive disorder
It makes my life a living hell
Yes I've got obsessive-compulsive disorder
Can't drink my water from a wishing well
Whenever I go out of my house
I lock my door so the in won't go out
I can't be sure if I done it so
I go back and I check it some mo'
Cause I can't get the thought out of my head
That I left the door unlocked and someone's stealing my bread
Cause I've got obsessive-compulsive disorder
I'm never relaxed cause I'm worried all day
That I've got obsessive-compulsive disorder
Nothing I do makes it go away
Pray please pray, pray for me
Cause I'm afraid to use a public toilet seat
Call the doctor, call your best friend
Cause I can see my beginning is reaching the end
I drive my car down the street
I don't allow myself to use my feet
I press the accelerator with my hand
And why I do it people don't understand
Cause I can't get the thought out of my mind
That if I use my feet I'll surely go blind
Cause I've got obsessive-compulsive disorder
It runs my life and it makes me feel blue
Yes I've got obsessive-compulsive disorder
To get rid of it I don't know what to do

about

Douglas Chay Baltimore, Maryland

Influences include Violent Femmes, the Velvet Underground & Talking Heads, but the music of his forebears is filtered through his own distinctive world view & sonic approach, resulting in a creation uniquely his own.

Simple without being simplistic, accessible without being sycophantic, & clever without feeling smug, he achieves a compelling balance between the new & the familiar. - Scott Hollis
