"I feel scared, trembling, shaking,
Flooded with thoughts, heart-breaking.
Outside there is nothing wrong,
Inside we all aren't getting along.
Everything is worst-case-scenario,
Drown it out, turn up the stereo.
Seems like no matter how many distractions,
I can't stop these over-reactions.
So I light up another cigarette,
To try to sort out my mindset.
Logic doesn't work with me, I can't reason,
My serotonin is in depletion,
Clouding my mind and my judgement,
Trying to get back is such an adjustment.
I lost the remote control to my mind,
Channels flipping rapidly, my spirit declines.
Seemingly to last forever,
These thoughts trick me, they are clever.
No they come to an end, they never do last.
They will come and they will pass.
So I hold on tight for the ride,
I have self-expression on my side.
Getting out all this extra energy,
Pour it on a page, examine what I see,
Helps me to regain a little sanity."
