#MentalHealth – Songs About Depression

Jimi Hendrix ~ Manic Depression

Manic depression is touching my soul 
I know what I want but I just don’t know 
How to, go about gettin’ it 
Feeling sweet feeling, 
Drops from my fingers, fingers 
Manic depression is catchin’ my soul 

Woman so weary, the sweet cause in vain 
You make love, you break love 
It’s all the same 
When it’s, when it’s over, mama 
Music, sweet music 
I wish I could caress, caress, caress 
Manic depression is a frustrating mess 

Well, I think I’ll go turn myself off, 
And go on down 
All the way down 
Really ain’t no use in me hanging around 
In your kinda scene 

Music, sweet music 
I wish I could caress, caress, caress 
Manic depression is a frustrating mess

Uncle Tupelo ~ No Depression

Fear the hearts of men are failing
These our latter days we know
The great depression now is spreading
God’s word declared it would be so

I’m going where there’s no depression
To a better land that’s free from care
I’ll leave this world of toil and trouble
My home’s in heaven
I’m going there

In this dark hour, midnight nearing
The tribulation time will come
The storms will hurl the midnight fear
And sweep lost millions to their doom

I’m going where there’s no depression
To a better land that’s free from care
I’ll leave this world of toil and trouble
My home’s in heaven
I’m going there

I’m going where there’s no depression
To a better land that’s free from care
I’ll leave this world of toil and trouble
My home’s in heaven
I’m going there

Bruce Springsteen ~ This Depression

Baby, I’ve been down
But never this down
I’ve been lost
But never this lost

This is my confession
I need your heart
In this depression
I need your heart

Baby, I’ve been low
But never this low
I’ve had my faith shaken
But never hopeless

This is my confession
I need your heart
In this depression
I need your heart

And I’ve always been strong
But I’ve never felt so weak
And all my prayers have gone for nothing
I’ve been without love
But never forsaken
Now the morning sun
The morning sun is breaking

This is my confession
I need your heart
In this depression
I need your heart

This is my confession
I need your heart
In this depression
I need your heart

This is my confession
I need your heart
In this depression
I need your heart

The Vamps ~ Vampire Depression

I’m walking through your world
Enduring several thousand years
I sustained
Life from my immortality
Watching you
The folly of the human
Indiscriminately kill
Justifying endless wars
I have traded the light
In exchange for this life from the dark
Just blind me
Set me free
Just blind me
Set me free
Just blind me!
The height of absurdity
You people calling me the devil
But I can’t
Carry out your self destruction
There is never meaning
History goes on repeating
I can’t look
Just blind me
Set me free
Just blind me
Set me free
Just blind me!
There is never meaning
History goes on repeating
I can’t look
Anymore
Anymore
Just blind me
Set me free
Just blind me
Set me free
Just blind me!

Songwriters: Hyde / K.A.Z

Twenty One Pilots ~ Car Radio

I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire, exhale desire
I know it’s dire my time today

I have these thoughts, so often I ought
To replace that slot with what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole my car radio
And now I just sit in silence

Sometimes quiet is violent
I find it hard to hide it
My pride is no longer inside
It’s on my sleeve
My skin will scream reminding me of
Who I killed inside my dream
I hate this car that I’m driving
There’s no hiding for me
I’m forced to deal with what I feel
There is no distraction to mask what is real
I could pull the steering wheel

I have these thoughts, so often I ought
To replace that slot with what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole my car radio
And now I just sit in silence

I ponder of something terrifying
‘Cause this time there’s no sound to hide behind
I find over the course of our human existence
One thing consists of consistence
And it’s that we’re all battling fear
Oh dear, I don’t know if we know why we’re here
Oh my, too deep, please stop thinking
I liked it better when my car had sound

There are things we can do
But from the things that work there are only two
And from the two that we choose to do
Peace will win and fear will lose
It is faith and there’s sleep
We need to pick one please because
Faith is to be awake
And to be awake is for us to think
And for us to think is to be alive
And I will try with every rhyme
To come across like I am dying
To let you know you need to try to think

I have these thoughts, so often I ought
To replace that slot with what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole my car radio
And now I just sit in silence

And now I just sit in silence
And now I just sit
And now I just sit in silence
And now I just sit in silence
And now I just sit in silence
And now I just sit

I ponder of something great
My lungs will fill and then deflate
They fill with fire, exhale desire
I know it’s dire my time today

I have these thoughts, so often I ought
To replace that slot with what I once bought
‘Cause somebody stole my car radio
And now I just sit in silence
