  1. I cant possibly bring words to my brain in the english language to describe the unfathomable context of relation i have to this sound to perfectly describe how i feel

  2. [Verse 1: atlas]
    I haven't been able to cry since the sixth grade

    I thought I found myself in the music
    But all I found was more evidence that I'm useless
    There's nothin' in my mind left to do with
    The person I can see when I look in my mirror
    I started to create when it got worse
    Wanted so badly to sing that I forgot to learn to talk first
    Created a persona where I locked words
    Into phrases so that they could get a little bit clearer
    Over time I started changing, rearranging
    My mind into the lowest fruit hanging, dangling
    And picked it like a flower to pretend that it was me
    And let it take me over it was all that i could see
    And my true self faded into context
    I started seeing all the evil in the world, quantified time and bomb threats
    Honestly drifted to something out of movie scene
    I no longer remember who it is I truly used to be

    [Chorus: atlas and limbo]
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    With an aching neck
    Cause I can't stop looking back
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Takin' shaken steps
    Hopin' I'll get off this path

    [Verse 2: limbo]
    I can try to act like it doesn't effect me at all but, I'm really scared of the future

    I used to stand so tall
    They used to be so proud
    I couldn't even hide
    Myself in the crowd
    But somehow it's now when everything's changed
    I'm wondering why every day feels the same
    I'm searching and looking for something to say
    But really it should be "no I'm not okay"
    I've been trying so hard to find my escape
    But really I don't know how long that will take
    Today or tomorrow
    I'll swim in my sorrow
    That I could use a smile
    That I could share or borrow
    But secretly I'll keep it just for myself
    And please don't come closer I don't want your help
    I'll figure this out, on my own
    I'll stay with these feelings at home and alone

    [Chorus: atlas and limbo]
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    With an aching neck
    Cause I can't stop looking back
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Takin' shaken steps
    Hopin' I'll get off this path

    [Chorus: atlas and limbo]
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    With an aching neck
    Cause I can't stop looking back
    Now I'm just an anxious mess
    Takin' shaken steps
    Hopin' I'll get off this path

    let it take me over, it was all that i could see,
    my true self faded into context,
    i started seeing all the evil in the world,
    quantified time and bomb threats,
    on ice i drifted, like something out a movie scene,
    i no longer remember who it was i truly used to be.

    Now im just an anxious mess,
    with an aching neck,
    cause i cant stop looking back.
    Now im just an anxious mess
    taking shaking steps
    hoping i'll get off this path.
