about

This is the first track on my upcoming album about growing up with a mental illness. It winds its way through diagnosis, concealment, and the eventual reveal in the hope that others may join the conversation.

All profits from this single, the album, and the launch event will be donated to the Manitoba and Winnipeg chapter of the Canadian Mental Health Association.

Enjoy.

lyrics

Sleep is waiting
The voice isn’t fading
I want to get robbed tonight
I don’t but the thought fills my mind

I feel like a traitor
Is this what I was made for?
I want to get robbed tonight
I don’t but the thought fills my mind
I want the voice to leave my side
It won’t and its thoughts fill my mind

Flip the light switch five more times
If you don’t you’ll see why
I told you so when your family dies
Stay behind the line or cry

Here’s your mother
With a knife
‘Cross her throat
You crossed me
Don’t like when I show her dying?
It’s her fate
I’m glad you see
