Track Name: Serotonin
well here i go, putting my health back out of reach, forcing myself to blame anxiety for being a shitty friend one more time. one more cigarette won't hurt me i think i'll watch another movie. clearly i am having trouble learning. and i don't know what you're asking for i found your t shirt in my drawer and i miss you. but i know i shouldn't.

mostly i'm just overwhelmed by stress. but i swear to you i've been trying my best.

i am scared of every question you ask, i've been drinking too much water, and i can't seem to hear a word you say. breathing deeply doesn't help i wish that i was somewhere else getting high or feeling alive.

mostly i'm just overwhelmed by stress. but i swear to you i've been trying my best. sorry is the hardest word to say. you're not a painter unless you decide to paint.

i'll go home, tell my friends i feel alone. i hate my job, i miss my family and my dog. and honestly i don't know what to say, cause all of my words are stale anyway. i don't think you should call me back.

mostly i'm just overwhelmed by stress. but i swear to you i've been trying my best. sorry is the hardest word to say. you're not a painter unless you decide to paint.
Track Name: Rad But Not Really
i am emotional and i don't talk that well. small talk with anyone that i don't know is hell. my social tendencies have got me by the throat. it's so bad that all i do is fucking choke.

you don't need to know me to know that i hate your guts.
i think i need to leave i'm having perseverating thoughts.

~(˘▾˘~) some jams, brother (~˘▾˘)~

why do i still talk through movies, when i'm nervous? i just hope you think i'm funny, and are enjoying this. all my friends say i have problems acting how i feel, but i hate being vulnerable.

and i hate being forward but i need you to stay away.
don't act like you're dependent it's not like you need me anyways.

i know you're not sleeping you're just waiting for me to say something i'll regret tomorrow but i'll say it anyways. i hate you, i hate myself i always wish i was someone else, or maybe no one, i'm not sure.
Track Name: I Hope The Cops Don't Call My Mom
there's something about drowning that scares me more than it should. i'm feeling empty. it's not easy to feel helpless and it's hard to understand "we all get sad" but am i too sad? or is this normal? what the hell does normal mean? i think that i should stay in bed all day...

i can't believe i'm fucking crying my eyes out again. it's 9 am and i need a friend, or i need something to keep my mind of getting older just give me a break, or give me some space or leave me alone. i can't be alone without missing your smile or the person i want to be.

my arms are covered in red lines from when i was in handcuffs and i was freaking out. i think i lost some confidence since you went away to stout.

i can see something moving in my peripheral vision, or maybe that's just my bad decision? i'm so tired of doing nothing, but i can't drag myself out of bed. so i think that i'll lay here for longer and hate myself instead.
Track Name: Me Minus Meds
why should it matter if i'm not strong enough to get out of bed every morning? it's my own battle and i shouldn't need a pill to make sure i don't jump off a bridge. i should just need some friendship.

so double take and keep your eyes peeled for signs that i hate myself, cause i don't like to sedate myself. take a minute to appreciate the things that are fine in life, like listening to title fight. stay with me for just an hour please cause when you're hanging out with me i can see the things worth living for. what's living for?
Track Name: Problematic
am i too sad for you or am i just a problem that you refuse to fix? i've tried my hardest but you haven't helped me with any of this. all i've done is cut some corners, but now there's not much left. i kept my patience on the table and you called it a mess.

why would you say that? you know i am not that confident and hiding how i'm feeling with dumb jokes still has its consequences. be less self involved and maybe call me when you're sober. then you'll understand why i can not invite you over.

fuck me up again i promise that i can't handle this. it's not my fault that i have problems. it's my fault i'm problematic. taking zoloft every morning to level out my moods makes me feel like i am weaker.

am i too numb for this? or should i feel emotions that i have never felt, cause right now i'm feeling empty. does anybody else feel this bad every time that they wake up? i'm trying harder to stay conscious

why would you say that? you know i am not that confident and hiding how im feeling with dumb jokes still has its consequences. be less self involved and then ill call you when im sober, then you'll understand why i can not invite you over.

fuck me up again i promise that i can't handle this. it's not my fault that i have problems. it's my fault i'm problematic. taking zoloft every morning to level out my moods makes me feel like i am weaker. but i know that's not true
Track Name: Ten Month Tea Break
clearly i make bad decisions, but i'm probably too young to use my pre frontal cortex. it keeps me having fun while i'm skipping my classes to hang out with my dog, and watch the whole first two seasons of friends and scrubs.

would you pleases come over? i think i'm getting sad again. i'm probably just lonely and missing all my friends.

i don't mind the way you're treating me but i don't like the way you treat my friends like shit. i'm sad. that's it, i'm moving out. by the time i turn 18 i'm free to just do me and maybe then i can try to be happy on my fucking own.

*pit riff (ง'̀-'́)ง*

i suppose that i could try getting drunk instead of getting high. or i could lie awake, clear my head on this ten month tea break.

i despise the way you're treating me, i fucking hate the way you treat my dog like shit. i'm sad, that's it. i'm moving out. by the time i turn 18 im free to just to me and maybe then i can try to be happy on my fucking own.
