  • In your head
    Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie
    What's in your head, in your head
    Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie, oh

    I'm packin' up my shit, as much shit in the car as I can fit
    And I'm just drivin' as far as I can get
    Away from these problems 'til all of my sorrows I forget
    What's tomorrow like? 'Cause tonight I'm startin' life again
    Get to the corner and stop, fuck am I goin'?
    Besides psycho when I fantasize startin' my whole life over
    Yeah right, oh and I might go and
    Get hypnotized so I don't even recognize no one
    I try to look alive but there's nothin' like holdin' your head up high
    When you're dead inside and I just hide, so in
    Case you're wonderin' why my insides showin'
    'Cause I done spilled all my guts and those are mine so I'm
    Pickin' them up and stuffin' them back
    Fuck it, I've done enough in this rap shit
    Recovery brought me nothin' but back
    To right where I was and perhaps
    This coulda been my victory lap, if I wasn't on the verge of relapse

    What's in your head, in your head
    Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie
    What's in your head, in your head
    Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie, oh

    It seems to be the reoccurring main theme
    The shit I would daydream as a kid, I was eighteen
    I went from an irate teenager to still raging
    Isn't it though amazing, back then I put anything
    Into the rhyme, whether it was sad, mad, happy or angry
    I spit it, the mainstream, I hit it
    Yay me, I did it, did what?
    Hailie, baby, I didn't mean to make you eighty
    Percent of what I rapped about
    Maybe I shoulda did a better job at separating
    Shady and entertaining from real life
    But this fame thing is still the hardest thing to explain
    It's the craziest shit I ever seen
    And back then it was like I ain't even
    Bothered taking into consideration
    You one day being older and may hear me say things
    I didn't (A) mean and (B) just ain't me
    Okay, so ladies and gentlemen
    Let's strip away everything and see the main reason that I
    Feel like a lame piece of shit, I sound cranky and bitter
    Complain, beef and bicker 'bout the same things
    'Cause when I look at me, I don't see what they see
    I feel ashamed, greedy and lately I've been contemplating
    Escaping to get away and go wherever this road takes me
    It's making me crazy, what's in my

    What's in your head, in your head
    Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie
    What's in your head, in your head
    Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie, oh Writer/s: Dolores Mary O'Riordan, Marc Shemer, Marshall Mathers
