Lyrics
I don't live in California, I'll inform you, that's not where I reside
I'm just a tenant, paying rent inside this body and I
Got two windows and those windows, well I'll call them my eyes
I'm just going where the wind blows, I don't get to decide
Sometimes I think too much, yeah, I get so caught up
I'm always stuck in my head
I wish I could escape, I tried to yesterday
Took all the sheets off my bed
Then I tied up my linen with five strips of ribbon I found
Scaled the side of the building
I ran to the hills till they found me
And they put me back in my cell
All by myself, alone with my thoughts again
Guess my mind is a prison and I'm never gonna get out
So they tranquilized me, analyzed me, threw me back in my cage
Then they tied me to an IV, told me I was insane
I'm a prisoner, a visitor inside of my brain
And no matter what I do, they try to keep me in chains
Sometimes I think too much, yeah, I get so caught up
I'm always stuck in my head
I wish I could escape, I tried to yesterday
Took all the sheets off my bed
Then I tied up my linen with five strips of ribbon I found
Scaled the side of the building
I ran to the hills till they found me
And they put me back in my cell
All by myself, alone with my thoughts again
Guess my mind is a prison and I'm never gonna get out
Said even if it's true, no matter what I do
I'm never gonna escape
I won't give up on hope, secure another rope
And try for another day
Said even if it's true, no matter what I do
I'm never gonna escape
I won't give up on hope, secure another rope
And try for another day
Then I tied up my linen with five strips of ribbon I found
Scaled the side of the building
I ran to the hills till they found me
And they put me back in my cell
All by myself, alone with my thoughts again
Guess my mind is a prison and I'm never gonna get out

  • Depressed Lyrics Translator -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm just a tenant paying rent inside this body- He doesn't like himself for who he is and wants to change. I'm just going where the wind blow, I don't get to decide- People make all his decisions for him I wish I could escape, I tried to yesterday- Tried to kill himself yesterday Then I tied up my linen with 5 strips of ribbon I found- Making a noose out of bedsheets Scaled the side of the building, I ran to the hills till they found me- He almost died, but someone saved him And they put me back in my cell, all by myself, alone with my thoughts again- This line is pretty self-explanatory, he kept on living with the voices inside of his head. I guess my mind is a prison and I'm never gonna get out- Again, self explanatory, he wants to leave this life but people keep stopping him So they tranquilized me, analyzed me, threw me back in my cage- They put him in the hospital and then he had to talk to a counselor Then they tied me to an IV told me I was insane- Doctors, friends, and family not wanting him to die, telling him how great his life could be And no matter what I do they try to keep me in chains- People keep trying to turn his life around or change his mind, but he's not going to Said even if it's true, no matter what I do, I'm never gonna escape- Counselor talking to him about how much of a burden him dying would put on his friends and family I won't give up on hope, secure another rope, and try for another day- No matter what, he's determined to die and he's going to find a way ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thank you for reading this. If you ever feel like hurting yourself, please talk to someone. It doesn't even have to be a counselor, maybe a parent or friend. But we all have potential that would be lost if we killed ourselves. So please, try to hold on. ~A depressed person

  • Who else accidentally stumbled across him, liked the music and stayed because it explains things we just can't? Okay but for real though, anyone notice how much he's grown!? Like Is bad even in Alec's vocabulary? Also has anyone seen autotune? No alright, This is amazing keep it up

  • Wowww I love this songggg

  • My bff is obsessed with fnaf and this reminded her of it ;-;

  • I love this song, I hope your doing okay though 🙏😔

  • she comes in , locks me inside me in my brain , made me prisoner in my brain .

  • We need to spread this song, it deserves so much more attention. Bc before th artists are good, and they get famous. Then they create stupid songs like W.A.P. Which is just what? Why is it a hit..... and theres this song, chilling here....

  • THIS SONG IS SO GOOD ah I cant

  • This song is played 4 chords and it already sound amazing

  • "Spell "Perfection."" A-L-E-C-B-E-N-J-A-M-I-N. (Not my idea. Please don't credit me. ^^)

  • My bestfriend shared me this song and i was like "where tf did u know this song" bec it was relatable for me that time and so to him. It became our song bec we're both problematic and feels shit. But we moved on and now, we are happy, together. Even though we're not relating to this song anymore, still we'll treasure this and will be forever thankful bec this song saved us from sadness (even though this song itself is depressing) CONTINUE TO CREATE MORE SONGS ALEC UR SONG CAN SAVE LIVES!!!!!

  • the only thing keeping me from full on breaking down and sobbing rn are my chips and coke

  • Lyrics: Is in the vid.

  • ugh I love this song

  • "I guess my mind is prison and i'm never get out"

  • imagine being payed to write words on a steamed mirror-

  • why don't the dislikers ever comment ? badly want to know how they can do the impossible!

  • I have a question.... why is this guy so damn good at writing songs?

  • This is even better in 1.5 lol

  • This song really explains how I feel and how others feel. That's deep and hits in a whole different way to me.

  • "So Alec, do you want to be a storyteller or a songwriter?" Alec: *Y e s*

  • I only have one piece of advice Ask the right people for help don’t make the same mistake as me

  • Scaled the sid

  • Alec benjamin and Billie Eilish need to collab peridot

  • ILYAB

  • listen to this in 0.75

  • this guy chose the right path

  • It's hard not to write in all capitalization. Sorry if tHAt BoTheRs u.

  • ㅠㅠㅠ졸라좋아싯팔

  • Lets start off with an almost ten minute add-

  • This song is true rn I can't stop thinking and I hate it

  • Hi I’m DJ I’m a trans male. I get hated on. Looked down on. I get told I’m worthless. But I’m still happy and fighting I’m 2 weeks clean. So I’m trying my hardest to keep it

  • 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤

  • Yes 😘

  • This is the only thing that can make me fall asleep faster

  • nobody not a single human me*sees comments about people being depressed* i just like the song.

  • i dont know why but i used to think that the person in the story tried to kill themself to escape their thoughts? what was i thinking lmao

  • I've never related to a song this much

  • This is how depression feels like being trapped in your own mind and when you try to escape your thoughts grab you an throw you back in your head , your a prisoner of your own thoughts trapped in your mind in your own prison ,it feels this way no matter how many times you try to escape ,when you try to escape it's your anxiety taken over 💔😢

  • f

  • This song makes me cry because I can't stop thinking too much. I can never relax or be patient. I'm never gonna escape my depression either 😭

    • Dont think like this! You will make it! Try to think positive! Listen to music that makes you feel better! Do whatever makes you feel better and you will make it! Just belive

  • 💗

  • Понимаю тут русских нету :(

  • I would be a fool to not revisit this comments thread in the future. Timestamp: Circa 2020, smack dab in the center - the heart of hell - the mental, and for many, physical prison of the Coronavirus Pandemic. I was too young last time to wish to understand the fear involved when things like this go wry. Here’s for tomorrow, with much love, YOU got this. Stay strong. - The Pariah of Pleiades.

  • This song is the definition of depression. I've had depression for years now, and let me tell you...to all the people who say this is like quarantine, it's not. At all. You dont get the point of the song. How I see this beautiful piece of music: -a person who feels trapped inside their own body, forced to interact with others, wishing they were dead. -the "escape" part is basically trying to kill yourself, but someone keeps stopping you. Please, if you are here to talk about quarantine, dont. This isnt "Level of Concern" or some other quarantine song. So in conclusion, this wasn't meant to offend anyone or say anyone's opinion is wrong, but I'm just clarifying the true meaning of the song. From: a severely depressed and mentally sick person

    • @Lefty ✨✨disassociative problems✨✨

    • Casey Hawley why did u say that twice lmao xd

    • As someone myself who has disassociative problems and major depression this song really hits home. Your mind is a literal prison and your only windows to the world and what's going on is your own eyes. You always have this constant confusion and fear if your part of reality or your merely someone else trapped in your own mind such as a prison so you try to escape by trying to feel something whether hurting yourself or trying to commit. I always play this song when I'm coping. The depth of it actually brings me back to reality since it makes me understand I AM the one trapped. Which makes me understand I need to feel better in order to not disassociate and damage myself. I fully agree that this song is directed towards others who are mentally ill but also others who aren't fully there and feel trapped in such an endless feeling. It is amazing how Alec really knows his audience 💖

    • Pakhi Verma yeah parents think they are doing the best for you but in reality most of the time they are wrong, like when my parents forced me to eat a kiwi. And that was the day i found out im deathly allergic to it

  • i wonder why alec does not read our comments.....Could he be thinking of a new song? if he is, i will definetly watch it!!

  • Honestly to me it feels like the world is a prison and my mind is my escape.

  • Being stuck in my own head isn't really much of a struggle since my mind is my comfort zone. Getting out is the REAL struggle.

  • Some person: “You can’t make good music with story’s” Alec: “hold my coke”

  • Hey u scrolling through the comments... I'm depressed to man😔

  • my minds a prison to, were not alone

  • This song might be the reason I go back to playing drums and piano

  • I cry every day because alone all time I don't think what happen if I just fine some body

  • Dear strangers, hope you all are doing great in this pandemic ❤️

  • HEY!! I'm not crying.. It's just dust😢😢😭

  • bruh you are WOW!!

  • Feel the feel

  • 10753 commento. Basta aprire la cella e la tua mente c'è la fa da sola seguila. Ho l'impressione che stai correndo dietro alle menti dei tuoi fans..... Buon 221° giro di rotazione terrestre.

  • In my opinion This song represents social anxiety pretty well- Just me? Okay-

  • This song reminds me of Mansion by NF its amazing!

  • This song says mind is a prison but I feel like life is a prison

  • I like someone and we’re both depressed but my heart aches when I think of telling him

    • Maybe you guys should talk to each other, just a suggestion 😊

  • To all who need this right now remember that if your world is on fire it will quench. when it does you will stand on the ash and rebuild stronger and better than before. Good luck everyone we will get through this together.

  • Gemini

  • (this isn't mine

  • I can listen to sadboyprolific NF songs that actually relate to me this but yet I don’t feel anything how odd

  • This is sad that it doesn't last 5 minutes so I can listen to it with my eyes closed dreaming about have a boyfriend and then fall asleep 😓

  • Always love listening to this when I’m on spotify

  • to some ppl reading this is ...plz dont waste ur time like i did

  • Im so happy he is noticed now :3

  • f in the chat

  • Am I the only one who listens to his songs and just straight up fells bad for the guy and wanna just give him a hug? Or am I just sensitive🥺

  • The fact that he used foggy windows in his lyric video about a song that describes someone trapped in their own head with a foggy and inescapable point of view... brilliant.

  • Ty alec this song really calms me down I really appreciate it

  • When your own mother traps you mentally and physically with rules and ideas that slowly kill you overtime.

  • Just bootiful, what a masterpeice mind is a prison is a great song never underestamate this song

  • My depressed ass: Wanna kill myself. ...nvm i can't listen to his songs when im ded 🙃

  • Excuse me people why the heck does this have ANY dislikes?

  • Hi, If you came here to cope, If by the end of the video *watching it through* you feel better already, treat yourself I want you to do something you enjoy Order take-out Play video games Have some sweets Have drink or two tonight Sleep in tomorrow, Something you enjoy. Because you are a very strong person. Know that. If a video this short helped, you are stronger than most. It’s easy to cope when it comes to you, and that’s a very good thing. You can get over major events quickly. That’s great. So please, treat yourself Know how strong, and wonderful of a person you are. And what ever you want to do, do it. Have a great rest of your day

  • I love this song 😭

  • No no No sad😡😭💔

  • im so excited!!!!

  • During this song I didn't cry, my eyes sweat

  • is this not working to cry to (it is for me) but anyway try nf like mansion, why would you leave us, and much much more 😅
