My Anxiety 03:16
I wish the world wasn’t so awful I wish that people didn’t suck I’m always worried about everything I wish that things would start looking up My thoughts are always driving me crazy I’m scared that things might get worse I’m always worried about everything Sometimes I think that I’m just cursed My anxiety is dragging me down I just want to feel safe and sound But my anxiety is giving me a nervous breakdown I don’t want to see the doctor The doctor might tell me I’m sick He told me I should try some hippie stuff But it didn’t seem to stick I don’t want to call my mother My mother always tells me I’m wrong She thinks she’s right about everything She tells me to be big and strong My anxiety is dragging me down I just want to feel safe and sound But my anxiety is giving me a nervous breakdown I stay away from everyone I stay inside and I don’t have fun Because I’m up my ears in unfounded fears And I seem to find more year after year after year after year My anxiety is dragging me down I just want to feel safe and sound But my anxiety is giving me a nervous breakdown

The facade has fallen, daggers are out, you’re antagonized All you’re left with is resentment, and a pair of scornful eyes It’s a bankrupt duet Full of malicious intent Being held down by Toxic contempt You make your case, you try to reason, but there’s never compromise Trying to make pleasant conversation, will only gets you criticized It’s a bankrupt duet Full of malicious intent Being held down by Toxic contempt Anxiety’s rising and the past is calling, and you always get chastised There will never be reconciliation, everything is too polarized It’s a bankrupt duet Full of malicious intent Being held down by Toxic contempt

Boring Day 02:54
I didn’t hear from my friends They must be too busy for me Busier than I’ll ever be I don’t have money to spend Because I blew it on fancy shoes All I have is time to lose I’m so bored I’m fading away All alone on this boring day So I’m stuck at home Drenched in Tom Ford cologne Guess I’ll just stare at my phone … Nothing interesting I’m so bored I’m fading away All alone on this boring day I’m so bored I’m fading away All alone on this boring day This boring day This boring day

You say nothing’s working Inside you’re hurting I wish there was something that I could do Cause I hate to see you crying I wish I could take all the pain away I wish you knew that everything will be okay On the other side of sadness You put on your brave face You act like you’re not phased But you still will give yourself away No matter what you try to say I wish I could take all the pain away I wish you knew that everything will be okay On the other side of sadness Try to see it from a different point of view There are brighter days ahead for you On the other side of sadness Close your eyes and Try breathing deeply Don’t let your darkest feelings get you down There is beauty all around you Try to see it from a different point of view There are brighter days ahead for you On the other side of sadness
