I wrote this song many years ago and it can be relevant to many of you now if you have any experiences with stress.
We pour out our hearts and souls to the dreams in which we wish to achieve and hope that the universe can hand us a little bit of luck... but sometimes it hands us a shit card.
In the second verse, I explain that you need to fight through the silent and resilient depression by talking to someone, whether it be a friend or foe in order to avoid any type of self injury (the violence which is mentioned in the lyrics). One of the biggest factors of depression is falling behind. We all wish we had more time in our days especially when we feel as we are doing everything to the best of our abilities. Sometimes you just need to take a step back and have a “peace of mind” instead of thinking it will be a “piece of cake”. The last verse “living a dream that’s held up for hostage” can be interpreted in many different ways. It could be about the education systems holding your degree hostage until you pay off your debts or it could be the dream life that you’d love to have if you didn’t have credit cards. We can all relate to this race of life in one way or another and say “f*ck this” and drink it all away, but instead... just take the appropriate amount of time (proper pause) to think about how much procrastinating you’ve been doing and just go harder, but with confidence that you WILL succeed (extravaganza). Close out your mind to the negativity that you can’t do something (false propaganda) and prove it to yourself that you deserve better cause you’ve earned it.
Many of your friends, family members, and even enemies are or can be depressed. Reach out and help! #mentalhealthawareness
