"Sharks And Danger" as written by and Dallas/ingelevics Green....
St. Catharines Psychiatric Help Line, this is Nancy.

I'm sure this is all gonna sound really ridiculous and uh I don't exactly expect anyone to believe all this.
Uh for the last little while I've been kinda keeping correspondence with my sanity, and uhh I really get the feeling that Iâ??m starting to lose interest in the letter writing process.
The pieces of the letters, they just get progressively shorter and shorter until itâ??s not even a reply.
I uhh the whole thing makes me really nervous.
I just wish I could show you what a huge problem this is.

As life hangs beside me
I gather all that I can
You were never one for confrontation
But now it lies all in your hands

Your hands

I kind of have this really terrible habit of asking myself all these stupid questions, right?
Like what if uh what if there's a spot on my body that I can touch to keep my heart from beating? Or like what if, what if there's this uhh stray bullet out there thatâ??s gonna come through my window and take me out?
Like what if uhh what if there's this huge unstoppable comet thatâ??s just gonna like, destroy the earth and all of us?
Like what what if thatâ??s happening right now?
How can I avoid all these questions if I don't have that?
Like, who is gonna be here?
Why who is gonna be there in the hospital?
Who is gonna tell me that all this is bullshit its a dream? Just a dream.
This is not a joke. And uhh I'll never sleep.

Who will be there to tell
Me how stupid I am? [4x]

Who will keep me from lashing out? (lashing out)
Anxiety chokes me like razor wire (razor wire)
Who will keep me from lashing out? (lashing out)
Anxiety chokes me like razor wire (razor wire)

Now it's all in your hands, in your hands [x4]

(Anxiety chokes me like razor wire)

Anxiety chokes me like razor wire, razor wire

    General CommentIt's the demo version off their "Heart Skull" (ep). It's still incorrect, but close enough.

    General Commenti think the meaning of this song is about suiside like when he says as life hangs beside me like while hes still alive, and then he says u were never 1 for confrontation like hes asking sum1 for help like nancy in the song then he says but now it lies in ur hands saying that his giving up his choice wut to do u to nancy or whoever and thats its in their hands to help him and then when hes done his confession through out the song at the end its the person hes asking for help talking and that person is telling not to and saying who will tell me how stupid i am and that who keep me from lashing out well thats pretty explanitory and then he says axiety chokes him like razor wire like hes saying that the axiety and the thought of it is killing him and he finds it hard to talk to him about and hes saying it feels like its choking him

    General Commenti dont know how much about suicide this is, so much as it is about anxiety. not just because he says so in the last few lines, but because the whole song seems to outline the kind of thought process that might be influenced by anxiety issues.

    "who will keep me from lashing out"
    when you have a panic attack, you just lash out, you lose control.

    "I just wish I could just show you what a huge problem this is. "
    It's hard to explain to people why you freak out over the littlest things. but it does happen, and it is a serious problem!!

    "I keep thinking about, right now, all these awful things, and I don't believe it Where do I have to go so it'll stop? "

    depression is kinda linked with anxiety..
    and throughout either your mind just goes.. wild with a lot of negativity.

    anyways, that's just my perspective.

    General Commentoh and instead of "insane woman", i think it's stray bullet. that will "take him out".. not 'freak him out'..
