This song has themes of forgiveness, self-reflection, personal responsibility, and disallowing the kind of negative thinking that can affect our mental health


Gotta make these bad feelings go away/gotta make these bad feelings go away/do they make stronger?/do they make me smarter?/I don't think so, not today/ gotta get rid of these thoughts in my brain/gotta get rid of these thoughts in my brain/do they give me happiness?/do they give me hope and rest?/I don't think so, not today/but how do I solve my problems?/not by sweeping them under a rug/I know enough psychology not to bottle things up/but who do I tell them to?/just any listening ear?/or should I share a prayer with a god so near and dear?/In theory I have the closest of friends/but at the end of the day I make music instead/found an old letter that you wrote/the words they stung like they did years ago/your point was minuscule/your words were hardly cruel/but I had to find forgiveness all over again/could I say that my heart was broken?/or was I just naive?/was it my ego moping after wearing my heart on my sleeve?/I've always held life with an open hand/at least I intended to/but I think I understand now/that I did everything wrong and so did you/I'm letting go of these bad feelings and I hope you do too
