about

Recorded, edited, mixed and mastered by Bage at Studio Gradge, March 14th - April 17th, 2015

"I wrote this song in a time where I felt like everything I stood for and everything I was fighting for was wrong. Although in my heart I knew and still know I can be a good person I just felt defeated by the world. I was sick of feeling like I was wrong and I was sick of feeling like I spent too much energy on things I hated doing. With everything else going on, I started just doubting myself more and more. I felt overpowered by the world and just so worn out. I don't think that the way the world is, is a good way for it to be. I believe we need to be nicer to one anther. We must work together for change, don't put those down who fight for difference, join them. If the cause is positive, support them. On top of mental illness and everything that was going on with me and still is, I just felt exhausted and wanted to snap....

This is a feeling that comes and goes

This song is the pure frustration of feeling helpless in your own skin and against the world."

-McCracken

lyrics

This world wants everything and I can no longer give it anything.
It never stops, these ten thousand fucking thoughts.

but you’ll never see me live a life where I remain silent, I am resistance you’ll never keep me quiet.

Fuck this world

for all the pain that you’ve caused,
for all people you forgot
and the ones you never gave a chance.

From the day that you’re born, they take your voice, Shaped into something that they can control, don’t ask questions, don’t break the mold,

just do your fucking job and do what you’re told.
These expectations, never discussed,

This world has shown me nothing but hate
I wish I could be like most and ignore it,

but I’m overpowered and overloaded.

how long can I do this?
My brain in a rut,
foundations fall apart,
nobody gives a fuck.

How will I get back up?
Who will help me up?

I know it won’t be you, you’re too focused on the shit that doesn't matter.

Fuck that shit, you know it doesn't fucking matter.

We must work together, to make a change
before I lose all hope and blow out my brains.
Or get my rope, cause I just can cope

And I can’t breathe and I can’t hope
and I can't breathe and I can't cope

It's them VS me, it's all just fucked
Fuck this world, I can only take so much

Where do I go from here

Help me
