Lyrics:
the ones that make me happy
make me gain the weight
the ones that make me numb
push everyone away
the ones that trigger anger
make me feel unsafe
and i can’t help but wonder
if i’ll ever fix my brain

papa points to constellations
mama says take more vacations
living in this broken nation
how have you not lost sensation?

i keep taking pills
to get me through the day
pills
to make me feel okay
pills
i pray it’s just a phase
but i keep taking
pills
to make life less mundane
pills
to see it in a different way
pills
to take away the pain
can’t stop taking

i tried the meditation
but mantras always die
i killed my expectations
but they came back to life

and people love to say
be happier just smile
but it’s not all a mindset
when your chemicals run dry

papa points to constellations
mama says take more vacations
am i in a simulation
all i hear are palpitations

here come the side effects
feeling like a heart attack
and if you lose your breath
it’s just the side effects
