be what everybody needs,
what everybody thinks you are supposed to be -
cuz they know you better than you do.
their solutions all will work
because they know how bad you hurt,
and they can see inside your head,
can tell what your problems really are.

give up, phone a friend,
tell your friend you were wrong.
how could you see it more clearly than they can?
you are not really mentally ill.
you're just not trying hard enough.
depression's just another word for lazy motherfucker,
so just change your mind and smile.

if you cared just a little more,
the world would open every door for you.
never mind the relentless pain inside.
everyone's exactly the same,
why should you be any different?
and your bleak hallucinations are just caused
by not getting out enough.
your unspeakable rage is probably just something you ate.

so give up,
ask around,
and admit to yourself
that you just choose to feel like nothing will ever get better again,
that you prefer to feel totally worthless,
wasting every day.
so why don't you just stop complaining
and smile.
