Back when I was living in Philly, where my music career started for a Hardcore band before I knew how to play any instruments, I was really into the “Hardcore Punk” (better known as ‘Hardcore’) scene there. At the time, one of my favorite Hardcore bands was a band called “Expire” and they have a song titled “Anxiety” that goes like this:
Note to self
Do you remember just how it felt?
Bit your tongue and you just dealt
Until it all boils over
That was your first mistake
Need I remind you
What got us here in the first place?
Won’t let me go, won’t let me go
So am I crazy?
Well I don’t know, well I don’t know
I can’t think straight
Anxiety gets the best of me
I take it all on the chin
Trying to figure out where the f*** it all went
Looking up from my back again
I don’t really listen to a lot of heavy metal but I really like those lyrics. They are really relatable.
