Depression is a silent film A monologue shot underwater depression Is sulking because i won't talk to it Anymore by which i mean about it there Are some days when i am so sad i don't Remember what it's like not to be like When you have a bad cold and you forget How to breathe through your nose and You're so sure you'll never breathe Through your nose again And i'm so sure i will never feel joy Again Except when you have a cold you can call In sick to work and people tell you to Get well soon and there's a whole soup Genre dedicated to your well-being I can't call in sad to work Can't go to the grocery store and go to The sad aisle which would only have like Already stale popcorn and tea your best Friend swears is good for you so Sometimes All i can do is laugh If i don't there might be nothing left
