Track Name: Neurodivergent
They say you don’t know the struggle
But you do when your parents bury
All their hopes and dreams for you, Ohhhh
They try to set the obstacles
But you got to rise above it all
Seems like you live in a place where they don’t understand you

Hook 1:
If they knew
Your mind inside
They would understand
What lies inside
I said if they knew
What you didn’t hide
You wouldn’t have to lie
Inside
Don’t lie tonight

Chorus 1:
You’re not ill
When you’re mental
You may look mad
But you swear you’re gentle
You’re not ill
Because they call you special
Even though you feel so gentle
Why are you a little mental?
Why are you a little mental?

Diverging from the everyday life
You process your own way
Deal with strife with a hardened shell
But you’re sheltered, all alone
Broken inside, have to live with another lie
It won’t make you die tonight, don’t make me
Live this lie tonight

Hook 2:
If they knew
My mind inside
They would understand
What lies inside
I said if they knew
What I didn’t hide
I wouldn’t have to lie
Inside

Chorus 2:
I’m not ill
When I’m mental
I may look mad
But I swear I’m gentle
I’m not ill
Because they call me special
Even though I feel so gentle
Why am I so fucking mental?
Why am I so fucking mental?

Outro:
Why am I so fucking mental?
Why am I so fucking mental?
Mental
Mental
Mental
Mental
Track Name: Dark
Go dark real dark
I’m about to go
Hard, with these stars
Is it one night, don’t give
Me one night
Baby its alright, is it alright
I’m feeling all these sparks and it
Can’t heal this heart
Good times like you can’t heal my heart
I don’t know whether I should embark

But is it temporary
To carry the weight of this experience
But is it temporary
To leave me curious when you’re necessary
Got me singing….
Where we at, where we at, where we at, where we at
There we go, there we go, there we go, there we go
Don’t leave me dark, real dark, when we’re about to go hard

Verse:
I remember, I remember
What I treasure, what I treasure
For the night, alright
You’re gonna keep me up tonight
Cause I need you for the week
I got to hit my peak, play this game and
Forget them real scars showing, its
Hitting me mental before I smell the hotbox
Going, gonna buy me a drank and if I’m too poor
I’ll grab it from your fridge, I’ll crash your life
And I’ll make it my bitch
I’m giving all the signs to align, because we aren’t going to get
This time again, baby don’t leave me hanging
Just don’t leave me hanging on

Go dark real dark
I’m about to go
Hard, with these stars
Is it one night, don’t give
Me one night
Baby its alright, is it alright
I’m feeling all these sparks and it
Can’t heal this heart
Good times like you can’t heal my heart
I don’t know whether I should embark
But is it temporary
To carry the weight of this experience
But is it temporary
To leave me curious when you’re necessary

Got me singing….
Where we at, where we at, where we at, where we at
There we go, there we go, there we go, there we go
