Your low-grade depression Is because you care about things And you don't wanna do your work Your low-grade depression Is because you get hurt Because you have a human heart And you don't wanna do your work Your low-grade depression Is your need for meditation Is your need for boundaries I know that she scares you I know that it hurts But God loves you more and God gave you all of the words Get up darling, get out of bed You're gonna die but you're gonna live through the whole day today Get up darling, you beautiful thing And do your work Get up darling, open your door and look around Get up my sweet friend, take your heart Get up and go do your work

Settle Down 04:42
The rich people in the airplane Talk about the things they want to change On their bodies Which people are the most privileged at the end of the day If it's higher than us, where are they What's the difference between a burden and a dream come true? Asking for a friend 'Cause you helped me lighten up You helped me settle down Lost in reason, lost without it I hope you come around You're a child being pulled along by a string In a sled in Central Park That's who you are I'm a child staring out of a window of a car Longing to get away from what I'd seen so far What's the difference between a burden and a dream come true Asking for a friend 'Cause you helped me lighten up You helped me settle down Lost in reason lost without it I hope you come around Why would you take a knife to yourself? Why would you let someone else take a knife to you? I know we struggle for repentance, but what if we were sold our sentence? I don't know But you helped me lighten up You helped me settle down Lost in reason, lost without it I hope you come around

Grandfathers 04:34
I let a lot of things slide for a long time I don't even know if I trust my mind anymore My feelings come to haunt me I just don't have that kind of self-control Oh no, of course not, nobody does Oh no, of course not, nobody does I don't have grandfathers anymore It happens however it happens Your life story is all over your body I'm ready to forget it if you're ready to forget it I'm ready to forget it if you're ready to forget it Maybe there's a world where we are friends Maybe there's a world where we had it under control And instead of this mess we helped each other We were strong enough, we were friends What does it say that all my friends are scared of me What does it say that all my friends are scared of me Everyone has their tragedy of wasted time I wasted so much time but I stayed alive I'm doing what my mother did I'm doing what my grandmother did When one is with you at your table the other is asleep on your bed When one is with you at your table the other is asleep on your bed When one is with you at your table the other is asleep on your bed When one is with you at your table the other is asleep on your bed
