The Great Depression - Lyrics

The sun has started to set in my heart
It's like this whole world is falling apart
I still don't know just quite how to explain it

They think I like to wallow in sadness
I'm sailing on a riptide of madness
They say I've got a chip that's on my shoulder
And it holds me back
They're living with the force of a river
While my father tries to poison his liver
And I'm standing here just waiting for God
To take away my agonizing pain

These people they don't ever see
What's going on inside of me
They tell me just to let it be
They deny The Great Depression
My Great Depression

My heart has a beat like a motor engine's roar
I've asked for help, but they still don't want to pour
Any of their energy into my life or into my mind

I've failed at figuring this out
On my own
While the records spin
I'm cutting loose and letting go
I'm trying to forget about the pain
That I have buried down
In my deepest self

These people will they ever see
What's going on inside of me
I'm filled with fear, anxiety
Do you feel The Great Depression
My Great Depression

Do you see my Great Depression

You don't know how it feels
And you haven't seen all of my tears
As they fell from my eyes
Yesterday, tonight

You don't see my Great Depression

These people they don't ever see
What's going on inside of me
They tell me just to let it be
They deny The Great Depression
My Great Depression
These people will they ever see
What's going on inside of me
I'm filled with fear, anxiety
Do you feel The Great Depression
My Great Depression
