"Afraid of Heights" as written by Nathan Daniel Williams and Stephen Pope....
I breathe in, so deeply
I’m stealing all the air
Unseated, still dizzy
From acting like I care

I think I’m dying
Maybe I’m thirsty
I think I must be drunk
Woke up and found Jesus
I think I must be drunk

I’ll always be on my own
Fucked and alone
I’ll always be on my own
I’ll always be on my own

I’m a creep, you drain me
It’s dripping everywhere
I’m ugly, you’re boring
I can’t act like I care

I think I’m dying
Maybe I’m thirsty
I think I must be drunk
Woke up and found Jesus
I think I must be drunk

I’ll always be on my own
Fucked and alone
I’ll always be on my own
I’ll always be on my own

There’s nothing to prove
There’s nothing to do
There’s nowhere to go
Got nothing to lose

When it comes to being high
Got nothing to do
Got nothing to do
Nothing to prove
Nothing to prove
Nothing to prove

    General CommentThis song contains several references to other songs, including "Creep" by Radiohead, "Drain Me" and "Lithium" by Nirvana, "I Wanna Be Sedated," by the Ramones, and possibly "Say It Ain't So" by Weezer. All of these songs are pessimistic, being about, respectively, self-hatred, co-dependent relationships, depression, mental illness, and alcoholism. The narrator is in a relationship, but feels both inadequate and unloved by his partner. Out of nihilistic despair, he turns to drugs and alcohol.
