PANXIETY

 

I was looking out my window

At the things I’d looked at every day

Though it all seemed familiar

I couldn’t look at anything in the same way

I tried and I tried but I couldn’t get by

The safest I felt was further inside

I was looking out at things I’d never seen

 

And I said I couldn’t last too long

And I knew I wouldn’t last too long

 

All the little things seem bigger

All the bigger things seem larger than before

Things that used to be so simple

Feel like they’re not worth the trouble of doing anymore

Fortunes were made with the passing of time

Others were left searching couches for dimes

I stopped looking out my window

 

And I said I couldn’t last too long

And I knew I wouldn’t last too long

 

And here we are for the second time

Why do I think things will change?

It’s all in my mind

 

Everything is back to normal

And everything is back to the way it used to be

But nothing feels like its normal

And nothing feels like the way it used to be

I guess over time I will acclimatize

To all of these things that are blind to my eyes

I’m not sure if this is me or someone else

 

And I said I couldn’t last too long

And I knew I wouldn’t last too long

And I said I couldn’t last too long

And I knew I wouldn’t last too long
