That's a hella of a headache that you're nursing
Now that the bottle is empty you can stop cursing
I'm loud and angry and I can feel your mood worsening
Yesterday was a new low and I've just began the torturing
Take a seat across I feel like we need a long talk
And really discuss this new life and who's at fault
I think we got off on the wrong foot Shawn
Now that life has changed I can see a new dawn
And I'm back in control so you're just my pawn
You're attempts to fight me again simply make me yawn
Everything I tell you can't be wrong
After all, I've known you for oh so long
I've watched you grow from a child, to a teen, to a young man
You locked me in a cage for five years, took the keys and ran
But you returned back to me once you were alone
Because without me how could you ever really say you're home?
Raeshawn with depression isn't even really a person
Because is there really a Raeshawn when you're not hurting?
Without me where is you personality?
Without me where is your reality?
Where is the mystic and sympathy?
I'm the music to your life, I'm the soundtrack, the symphony!
I'm what makes you different and makes you unique
I'm the one that makes anyone want to take a peak!
I drive you to write
Make you love the nights
Make friends say it's gonna be alright
Gives you that narrow vision of sight?
Think you'll live without me?
You should do stand up because that's pretty funny!
The style of clothes you where? That's my design
"I wear a hood to hide my face" That's my line!
That dark sense of humor is my creation
Anything you think is original from you has no relation
And all of this "I'm my own man" stuff is testing my patience
Time is ticking on your control is making your heart racing!
Whoa...things are getting a little tense
But it's your stubborn attitude keeping us in suspense
You keep trying to bring my body to slaughter
Trying to silence me by keeping my head below water
But when I rise from below you see your worst fears
You see me with apart of your face looking at you with a sneer
And I rip another part away from you and add it to me
That's when the truth sets in tragically
You've lost yourself to me but I love you so it's okay
I'll steal a little bit from you every minute of everyday
Maybe you'll fall in love again but I'll drive her away
Because you're too weak to every run free
You always come running back like a battered wife
When was the last time you could ever say you owned your life?
Let me syphon that fear you hold in your heart
You're much too weak and wounded to rip us apart
I'm taking it all in time Shawn!
You shot the first shot, don't blame me now that the war is on!
I'm taking your love of cartoons and games
I'm taking your identity and all your cute nicknames
Let me consume your stupid grin and hallow laugh
Give up that will of yours, maybe I'll leave you half
I'm taking it all...except that one thing
I've taken the chance at kids, a house, and a ring
You always fought me so hard on this but I'm finally winning
Except this time it's you to the wall that I'm pinning
Breaking you down was to easy, I just needed to know where to start
Last things last Shawn, I'm coming for your heart!
I love you Raeshawn- Depression
