"Depression" as written by and Marius Mueller-westernhagen....
Right here, all by myself
I ain't got no one else
The situation is bleeding me
There's no relief for a person like me

Depression's got a hold of me
Depression, gotta break free
Depression's got a hold of me
Depression's gonna kill me

I ain't got no friends to call my own
I just sit here all alone
There's no girls that want to touch me
I don't need any of your fucking sympathy

Depression's got a hold of me
Depression, I gotta break free
Depression's got a hold of me
Depression's g-gonna kill me

Everybody just get away
I'm gonna boil over inside today
They say things are gonna get better
All I know is they fuckin' better

Depression's got a hold of me
Depression, gotta break free
Depression's got a hold of me
Depression's gonna kill me

Aah, aah, depression's got a hold of me
Depression, gotta break free
Depression's got a hold of me
Depression's gonna kill me

Aah, aah!

    General CommentObviously about depression, "THEY SAY THINGS ARE GONNA GET BETTER" hits home beause that's so true, people who aren't depressed or have overcome depression forget how hard it is to live with.

    General CommentThis is one hell of a song. I love how it was written. All the punk/hardcore bands of today write songs about depression trying to sound smart and deep. Black Flag did it best. It's not like they kept a thesaurus by them to find some obscure word for being bummed out. It's just straight to the point yelling what's wrong with their life.
