Just think it away, take some deep breaths

That’s what they’ve tried to tell me

Here, just take these pills, use this oil

These things, they’ve tried to sell me

Feel like I could sleep all day

I don’t remember to drink or eat

It’s easier to give in than fight

But I’m not ready to admit defeat

I try to keep on going

My normal, happy me

I try to be positive and upbeat

It’s what people expect to see

They don’t accept the ugly

It’s hard to hear the truth

But life isn’t pretty all the time

I’m living, breathing proof

I’ve got to get to healing

I know I’ve still got dreams

It has gotten dark sometimes

But it can’t be as dark as it seems
