You wouldn't know me when depression kicks in,
When the panic's attacking and I miss medicine
When my neck can't hold up my head
And I just can't get out of bed
When you see me (see me) uncomfortably chain smoking,
Trying to force up a smile
Then I'm slippin' (slippin') again

And I don't wanna drag no one down with my problem
That's in my head
I'll probably snap out but I just don't know when

Apologies from me
This is nothing that I want you to see
Trying to drown out that ringing voice
Might give it up, give it up
Like a pick in a hollow body
Give it up, give it up, give it up down
Into the sea, tentacles got me by the neck and they're pulling me down

I try to keep in check
Stay on top, teeter tot won't balance I guess
Every time I get one under control the rest start rising and then
I stay shut up in my home
Agoraphobic and alone
'Til with bit lip, fuck it, I gotta try
Hands clenching, sweating,
Don't want no one to see in my mind
It's not a pretty sight
The right half don't work and the screws aren't tight

Apologies from me
This is nothing that I want you to see
Trying to drown out that ringing voice
Might give it up, give it up
Like a pick in a hollow body
Give it up, give it up, give it up down
Into the sea, tentacles got me by the neck and they're pulling me down

    General CommentI LOOOOOOOVE this song. It makes me think of how I feel with the way my mind works. I apologize so much for things I say and do because sometimes my brain is just ridiculous.

    General CommentI love this song too! I'm suprised more people
    haven't commented.I didn't know all the lyrics
    till just now and I never would have guessed
    it was so depressing! It sounds kinda
    cheerful to me.
    Anyways, I think it's about
    a guy who gets anxiety attacks,and depression.
    He tries not to bring other people down with
    his problems so he over apologizes.

    I have a friend who is not this bad, but is
    on meds for his fear of being around the
    public. He doesn't apologize though.
    I think it's really sad...He's a good kid...
