                                    Am
I don't wanna break down but i'm feeling low
       Dm
Let me sink to the bottom
          Am
Air in my lungs keeping me afloat
       E7
Inside i'm still hollow
 
 
[Verse]
  Am
I know i'm not my thoughts
 
But my thoughts don't know that yet
    Dm
Sometimes i try to sneak up
 
On the voice inside my head
     Am
I've tried to meditate
 
Cause they tell me it'll help
        E7
But the last thing i need is more time alone inside myself
  Am
I know i'm not unique
 
We all got broken brains
        Dm
Culture recently decided being crazy is okay
    Am
And now we all can talk about it on our social feeds
         Am                 E7
Having a rough day? hashtag mental health awareness week
 
Am
  i know that's progress, we don't have to hide no more
       Dm
But it leaves me wondering why we ain't said this stuff before
     Am
Like were we always all crazy and we all just kept quiet
       E7
Are we on the same page with what we're identifying?
       Am
And if crazy's the new normal then it's not that crazy, is it?
          Dm
Cause the word by definition means it sits outside the system
        Am
And how can we tell difference between sick and trying to fit in
       Am                      E7
And if everybody's crazy, then who's supposed to fix it?
 
 
[Chorus]
                    Am
I don't wanna break down but i'm feeling low
       Dm
Let me sink to the bottom
          Am
Air in my lungs keeping me afloat
       E7
Inside i'm still hollow
                    Am
I don't wanna break down so where do i go?
           Dm
My screams sink to the bottom
          Am
Top of my lungs, just an echo
       E7
Inside i'm still hollow
 
 
[Verse]
   Am
No one told me it could get this bad, this fast
Dm
Guess we only hear about the struggle after it's passed
Am
Getting easier to open up, share what we've lost
Am                               E7
Good to know i'm not alone but if i'm really being honest
 
Am
I kinda hope there's something wrong with me
        Dm
I kinda hope this isn't how it's supposed to be, supposed to be
Am
I pray to god it's not normal crying on the floor
E7
I don't wanna do this anymore, though
 
 
[Chorus]
                    Am
I don't wanna break down but i'm feeling low
       Dm
Let me sink to the bottom
          Am
Air in my lungs keeping me afloat
       E7
Inside i'm still hollow
                    Am
I don't wanna break down so where do i go?
           Dm
My screams sink to the bottom
          Am
Top of my lungs, just an echo
       E7
Inside i'm still hollow
 
 
[post chorus]
Am
I kinda hope there's something wrong with me
        Dm
I kinda hope this isn't how it's supposed to be, supposed to be
Am
I pray to god it's not normal crying on the floor
E7
I don't wanna do this anymore, though
 
Am
I kinda hope there's something wrong with me

Am
  i don't wanna break down
Dm
  i don't wanna break down
Am
  i don't wanna break down
E7
  i don't wanna break down
 
 
[Chorus]
                    Am
I don't wanna break down but i'm feeling low
       Dm
Let me sink to the bottom
          Am
Air in my lungs keeping me afloat
       E7
Inside i'm still hollow
                    Am
I don't wanna break down so where do i go?
