about

Hypochondriac started off as a verbal vomit verse from a colourful time of my life. Written during a run in with a bus stop, a sword, some extreme morning binge-drinking and some good ol' reflective time in the cells.

I then added a 2nd verse to it about half a year later with a different perspective, banged in a chorus and got it recorded.

lyrics

V1
I’m a hypochondriac hanging out at the doctors surgery, it hurts to see that there’s probably nothing wrong with me, apart from the hypochondriactivity maybe ADHD and mild autistic tendencies, this cider makes me need a piss but it don’t burn to pee, i’m fairly clean i’ve barely seen a sexual disease, I think im just a massive drama queen drama king, lets open up this can and find out what the drama brings, cos drama raps dark plays guitar and drama sings, i’ll hang about outside this shop until it’s opening, im soaking in the stella but not toking or blowing smoking rings, they think he thinks she thinks I think too much thats why I drink, over thinking’s got me diagnosing phantom things, maybe its me that chose to be the shaky way i’ve been, don’t wanna be a jakey referring to Irvine i’m certain chasing tales to no avail in that life of sin, see that yin, with the black and red dirt yellow tin, maybe it’s him that chose to be the shakey ways he’s been, or maybe he just got unlucky in the game he’s in, how far’s he in, reaching far into the bargain bin, or sipping gin on rocks in smarmy classy bars he’s in, ooh lardy da but no matter the scenario, how far we go reflects how much the demon’s ego grows, and in effect these effects affect how far we go
Chorus
How long will this thing grow for, how long until you’re sure, how long before you realise take broken glass from blood shot eyes
It took until twenty four, I’m almost 25, probably coulda shoulda done this thing before, but still youth’s on my side

V2
As it turns out i’m not a hypochondriac, adhd spd there’s nothing wrong with that, in fact fuck it blatantly ill write a song with that mild tourettes and OCD Doh Ray Me to that
Careful though compulsion leads me down a risky path, a path line with broken glass can carve your wrists in half, acting daft didn’t you learn nuffin from history class, this twisted path lasts for many miles till shit gets dark, the fits of laughter after fits of rage have finally past, this bastard has us by the throat till its our mastered craft, but difficult is not impossible just a harder task and we can take control master the art of taking charge
I feel i’m quite well equipped for this game, but i’ve just got this one thing I know i keep saying, i’m trying to keep sane, I wake to blood and whiskey stains, this thorn remains the bane and now this thorn is causing vicious pain, so i’m onto rolling dice now in a different game, a chance to grow and change improve my life in different ways, moving from the darker days excuse the cliche but i can’t find a better saying for saying where i’ve been staying,
but now the lights are on, i’m finally working at it, at first I feared the art and pain pattern was systematic, drink’ll do that cloud your judgement keep you pissed and static, but now the haze has vanished, I wrote that first verse hammered.
I wrote that first verse at the worst of times in the worst of chapters, a chapter of my life drinking till my brain was battered, my goals and aims were scattered, fuck that i’m sober now, it’s safe to say the knack remained that phase is over now, but I can’t get complacent though i’ve got a way to go, i’ve got a lot to show myself and other’s time to grow, I guess i’ll have to wait and see waiting patiently, i’m doing well but time’ll tell in years to come the state of me

Chorus
How long will this thing grow for, how long until you’re sure, how long before you realise take broken glass from blood shot eyes
It took until twenty four, I’m almost 25, probably coulda shoulda done this thing before, but still youth’s on my side
