Depression, it can creep up on you and stab you,
Strip you of your life, dreams and grab you,
Bring you down into a dark pit and drag you,
Then suck your life force out and gag you,
Friends become strangers, moving further apart,
You lose control of your mind and heart,
Isolated in a crowd of people, ever so alone,
Dribbling your rhymes on the phone,
You put up a fake smile, your wear happiness as a guise,
You go to work all day, nights spent sleepless in muted cries,
You sit alone, smoke and drink,
When your close eyes, you think,
What happened, where did it all go wrong,
Where do you fit in, where do you belong.
