The phrase has its roots in WW2. When a soldier came into a medical facility with a limb or multiple limbs detatched from his body, the nurses would call the patient a "basket case". As in they had to bring the soldier to them in a basket.

Modern day usage is to describe someone that is in need of extreme assistance(mental or physical).

an awesome green day song with a rocking beat and lots of bass; the song is about frontman's billie joe armstrong's paranoia

Sometimes I give myself the creeps,

Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me,

Am I just paranoid?

Or am I just stoned?
