  • Waiting down at the end of the corridor
    Don't know this place but I swear I've been here before
    The shadows dance with the pictures that hang up on the walls
    I hear them laughing as I wander the halls
    I can feel my palms sweating now
    Pacing back and forward with nothing to say
    I can see my mind racing now
    The feeling won't go away

    It's like a clock ticking slow in the waiting room
    It's like a doctor calling but he's got no news
    My heart keeps racing, I don't know what to do
    You're giving me anxiety

    Like a message in a bottle that nobody read
    The famous last words that nobody said
    Tell me what is wrong tonight
    You're giving me anxiety

    Anxiety, anxiety

    I'm the patient, with no patience
    This operation has already failed
    It's too late for resuscitation
    Can't take away the pressure you make me feel
    I can feel my chest heavy now
    Weighing down on me, it's harder to breathe
    Look in the mirror, got no color now
    Another fatality

    It's like a clock ticking slow in the waiting room
    It's like a doctor coming but he's got no news
    My heart keeps racing, I don't know what to do
    You're giving me anxiety

    Like a message in a bottle that nobody read
    The famous last words that nobody said
    Tell me what is wrong tonight
    You're giving me anxiety

    And I'm underwater
    And I hate you
    What you're doing to me
    To me, yeah
    Your voice is cold, your eyes look through me
    Like they don't know me
    They're faking now when there was love
    It's empty

    A clock ticks slow in the waiting room
    The doctor calls but he's got no news
    My heart keeps racing, I don't know what to do
    You're giving me anxiety

    This is the message in a bottle that nobody read
    The famous last words that nobody said
    Tell me what is wrong tonight
    You're giving me anxiety

    (I'm underwater)
    You're giving me anxiety
    (I'm underwater)
    You're giving me anxiety
    (And I hate you)
    You're giving me anxiety
    (I'm underwater)
    You're giving me anxiety. Writer/s: BENJI MADDEN, DON GILMORE, JOEL MADDEN
