Try decreasing your font size to something like 90 or so, then create a new text box and type in your text. Or you could press shift+cntl+alt+t to make a text layer and start typing, that doesn't have the bounding box properties that creating with the text tool has.

...and if Johnny's trick doesn't work, try setting the distance between lines of text to Auto. Currently, it's something like 320.

Kind of an embarassing error: had the Horizontal Scale at 0%... sorry for wasting everyone's time.
