"Young And Depressed" as written by and Michael Herrera....
You've got so many problems
No one else thinks you can solve them
Where did the time go
Everybody wants to know
Life goes on day after day after day
Too much work and no play

When life seems like it can't get any harder
When you feel like a martyr
When you've lost all control
That's when you've let the whole world know

You're young and depressed
With no future in this loneliness
You're young and depressed
But you're pretty well dressed
Yeah you're pretty well dressed

I know that you've been hurting
So much has led up to this
Your eyes are burning
Hard times make the heart agree
That's all that you want is to follow your dreams
They all fall apart at the seams

Discontent turns to anger turning sour every lonely hour
Yeah depression
Failed relations turn over a new leaf will it be a four leaf clover?
Yeah obsession yeah depression yeah

    General CommentI love this freaking song. One of my favourites. Here is what it means from my point of view, since my friend recently tried to commit suicide, and I can relate it.

    You’ve got so many problems
    No one else thinks you can solve them
    Where did the time go
    Everybody wants to know
    Life goes on day after day after day
    Too much work and no play
    -Everything is getting overwhelming. Life is routinary, boring, and difficult.

    When life seems like it can't get any harder
    When you feel like a martyr
    When you’ve lost all control
    That's when you’ve let the whole world know
    -The person feels like nobody cares anymore. She loses control, and attempts suicide ('When you've lost all control. That's when you've let the whole world know')

    You’re young and depressed
    With no future in this loneliness
    You’re young and depressed
    But you’re pretty well dressed
    Yeah you’re pretty well dressed
    -She doesn't feel like there is a future, but she covers it up well and seems like she has a good life.

    I know that you’ve been hurting
    So much has led up to this
    Your eyes are burning
    Hard times make your heart resist
    That's all that you want is to follow your dreams
    They all fall apart at the seams
    -She wants to make something of herself, but she lost hope. Hard times make her think of things another way.

    Discontentment turns to anger turning sour every lonely hour
    Yeah depression
    Failed relations turn over a new leaf will it be a four leaf clover?
    Yeah obsession yeah depression yeah
    -After attempting suicide, people that she didn't get along with turn to her. Instead of being unhappy, she is angry at everything.
