about

this song is about mental health.

lyrics

I can’t pretend that I can
Spend all of my time in relationships that bore me
I won’t pretend that I can
Still fall in love with anybody new

And I won’t agree that all I need
Is another day of therapy or a pill to make me clean
But I don’t know what will make me
Stop seeking all the harmful ways to control my head

And I can’t pretend that all I want
Is for someone to love me and not leave in the end
And I can’t pretend that all I need
Is validation, affirmation, empathy, and honesty

I’ll spend all of my days
Locked in a cage
With my heart still beating
My lungs still breathing
But I can’t protect you
From the darkness within me
It’s an empty sign, an empty sign,
An empty sign, an empty sign

But you’re still my favorite
Person to lie with
On quiet nights in playgrounds
That I grew up in
But I’ll slowly poison you
With all of my demons
I’ll arrest myself, arrest myself
Arrest myself, arrest myself

In cardiac arrest
And arrows in my chest
Dissociation, distance
Validation, exits
But you’re still my favorite
Person to lie to
With capital letters, with capital letters

And I’m so sorry
And I’m not sorry

You’re still my favorite
Person of all time
With capital letters, with capital letters
