Hey I am back but never have I left you
Creeping around the corner when joy hits you first
I will be the painful release of the joy
You say you will be okay and tomorrow’s another day
I will remind you that everything is hopeless and can get taken away
You plead you don’t want me here it’s clear but I won’t leave that easy
I don’t compare to the physical pain in your back because it’s in your brain
Making you seem like your going insane to other people
Mental illnesses can make you famous
Be on the news running naked in the streets
Fighting the bartender because you got cut off bruh
Screaming at your boyfriend for something so little
They say you are so inconsiderate of other people's thoughts and feelings
You are trying to get yourself together just to be able to talk to them
But instead you yell, why the hell are you yelling at them when they trying to help you out
Just get out you don’t know who I really am
Man mental health isn’t me myself and I
I am who I make myself up to be please I am not a horrible human being
Just lost in my mind every day
Getting those demons away
Sometimes I gotta have that time
I may be silent that is when it’s the loudest
Here and there can’t compare
I am sorry for all that I have done
But my end is not yet to come
