Would someone please come help me

I'm trapped in my own mind

Fighting and screaming to get out of this cage

It looks like everyone else has gone blind

To the anguish and anger I display everyday

Would someone please come help me

My thoughts are way to dark

For me to keep on living this way

 

I'm tired and lonely

I'm scared and I'm sick

The voices in my head

Are throwing a screaming fit

 

I'm so tired of being happy one moment and depressed the next

I'm anxious and waiting for things that won't happen

I'll be different tomorrow, just you bet

I lash out at family, I don't know what to do

I'm eventually taken away,

To a room by myself where I'll say

 

I'm tired and lonely

I'm scared and I'm sick

The voices in my head

are throwing a screaming fit

My mood is constantly changing

I'm beginning to lose my mind

I know that I'm not normal 

I just wish I would be fine

 

Everything must be in its place

straight and aligned

Please don't question why I portion my food out

I've had to explain too many times

Make sure everything is even and filled

I know I may seem obsessive to you

But if the things aren't as they should be

It will be my heart that you have killed

 

I'm tired and lonely

I'm scared and I'm sick

The voices in my head

Are throwing a screaming fit

Everything must be perfect

I'm beginning to lose my mind

I know that I'm not normal

I just wish I would be fine

 

Please, just try to understand

That being so unstable

feels like you're being crushed in a can

I have depression, and I am bipolar

Can you believe I have OCD?

I wish someone could answer my question

Which is "Why did this happen to me?"

 

I'm tired and lonely

I'm scared and I'm sick

The voices in my head

Are throwing a screaming fit

I wish my thoughts were stable

I'm beggining to lose me mind

I know that I'm not normal

I just wish I could be fine 


The author's comments:

I wrote this because I was thinking about some mental illnesses that are often seen in today's world... Each verse is a different illness, if you can't figure it out as you read, don't worry, the verse before the last chorus will tell you which ones they are :) oh, and the way I hear it and imagine it, it belongs in the punk/metal genre of music. I hope you enjoy it
