Anxiety Baby chronicles songwriter, Tess Raunig's struggle with their mental health. With it, they hope to reduce the stigma of mental illness, and let people with similar struggles know they are not alone.


Anxiety Baby

Can't fall asleep, cuz you think too much, about falling asleep,
it’s a great big noise, sucks the life and joy, out of everything
You think that everyone hates you, and everyone blames you, for everything not right
You’re so lonely, you just can't believe, there’s a reason to be, alive

If you could turn off all these thoughts you would
But until then, you’ll be misunderstood

And it’s driving you crazy
It’s your anxiety, baby
Everyone thinks you’re lazy
It’s your anxiety baby
Thoughts come to stay lately
It’s your anxiety baby
Your future is hazy
It’s your anxiety baby

Can’t talk to friends, cuz you think too much, about what you’ll say
When they ask you how, your new music sounds, and you’ve wrote nothing
You could tell them truth, but you’d sound like a fool, and so you choose to lie
You say it’s fine, always just fine, fine’s just a scripted line, you wanna die

If you could just be honest with yourself
Maybe someday you’d get some fucking help

Get outta your head, get into your heart
Get outta your head, get into your heart,
So break out, break out, break out, and start connecting
Use that brilliant mind to help you find a way

So maybe you’re crazy
It’s just anxiety baby
You know you're not lazy
It’s just anxiety baby
Challenge yourself daily
Fight your anxiety baby
Let go of the maybes
It’s just anxiety baby
