Stranger In My Own House

Album: The Oakland Zone (2003)
  • Something's in the air, something I can't see,
    I don't know what it is, but it's affecting me.
    Met a gypsy woman, said she was a voodoo queen,
    She told me things about my life; still don't know just what they mean.

    Maybe I'm just trippin' out,
    It might be all inside my head,
    But lately I'm so filled with doubt,
    There's someone else inside our bed.

    I feel like I'm a stranger in my own house,
    A stranger in my own house,
    Nothing's really different but it's not the same,
    I'm a stranger in my own house.

    Spirit in the darkness just won't let me be,
    Waiting in the shadows; such a mystery.
    Vivid imagination, it's gonna be the end of me,
    When my suspicion begins to warp my perception of reality.

    Maybe I'm just trippin' out,
    It might be all inside my head,
    But lately I'm so filled with doubt,
    There's someone else inside our bed.

    I feel like I'm a stranger in my own house,
    A stranger in my own house,
    Nothing's really different but it's not the same,
    I'm a stranger in my own house, I'm a stranger.

    (A stranger in my own house,) Just a stranger
    (A stranger in my own house,) [There's] somethin' wrong
    Nothing's really different but it's not the same,
    I'm a stranger in my own house, hey-ey

    Maybe I'm just trippin' out,
    It might be all inside my head,
    But lately I'm so filled with doubt,
    There's someone else inside our bed, I feel like I'm...

    (A stranger in my own house,) A stranger
    (A stranger in my own house,) Just a stranger
    Nothing's really different but it's not the same,
    I'm a stranger in my own house, [There's] somethin' wrong, y'all

    (A stranger in my own house,) What's goin' on?
    (A stranger in my own house,) Yeah
    Said, nothing's really different but it's not the same,
    I'm a stranger in my own house, it's in my head, yeah

    (A stranger in my own house,) Am I trippin' now?
    (A stranger in my own house,) I don't know
    Nothing's really different but it's not the same,
    I'm a stranger in my own house.
