Rap – Text Message

[Verse 1]

Hi Mike, I hope you're alright?
You had a restless night? Same, but you'll be fine,
Met a girl on Tinder? Hell yeah that's tight,
Tell me how it goes after you meet tonight,
What's that? Your grades are beginning to change?
Decimate into a foray of fail that'll stay the same
No matter what you do? Dude don't talk like that,
I had a similar stance but got through it, now I'm glad
I fought, used what I was taught,
Don't worry about failing your
Driving test, I insist they'll be more,
Persist and I assure you'll stand tall,
Anyway gotta go, mum's waiting by the door
To drive me to uni, see you soon I'm sure,
Good luck with your test you got today on law,
If you ever feel down just give me a call

[Hook]

I think I hate myself, I hate myself,
It just feels as if my problems only swell,
When I look in the mirror I just see
A walking, talking, living hell,
I think if you gave me infinite sessions
Of therapy and happiness lessons
I'd shut down, my emotions disconnecting,
I just need a friend, please send me a text message

[Verse 2]

Hi Mike, I'm sorry you failed your test,
At least you're not exempt from a resit, yes?
You'll perfect it this time, I guess the stress
Messed with your thought process,
How was the date anyway? Was that okay?
Not at all? Any rapport decayed
Due to your anxiety slaying what you say?
I feel your pain, I've faced that time and time again,
But just try another, not all work fantastically,
It feels like a tragedy but actually I found in actuality
That it practically acts with your practicality,
Help learn from the sad things until you react gladly,
But really some people we just don't click with,
Just like your driving tests? Come on don't speak this
Negatively, sometimes I too have had enough
With the rough shit life throws at ya
But it works out eventually, that I know
So if you go down that road just give me a phone,
I'll never truly know what you're going through
But I wanna be there to support you

[Hook]

I think I hate myself, I hate myself,
It just feels as if my problems only swell,
When I look in the mirror I just see
A walking, talking, living hell,
I think if you gave me infinite sessions
Of therapy and happiness lessons
I'd shut down, my emotions disconnecting,
I just need a friend, please send me a text message

[Verse 3]

Hi Mike, I… woah wait, calm down please,
Failed the re-sits? You still have thirteen
Other tests to assure swiftly
That you'll continue moving,
Same with driving tests, you'll breakthrough soon,
No dude, to a life of failure you ain't doomed,
Come over and let's just talk things through,
List all your issues in my room, come on I'm here for you,
What's that about a knife? That'll you'll use tonight
To finally take… wait, what, your life!?
I'll be there now, don't do it Mike,
Mike, I, come on dude, please, reply!
I'm running down the street, I plead text anything,
The wind’s making my ears ring, I'm on the verge of puking,
I'm losing it, oh shit I'm outside your house,
Please re-consider your doubts, I'll be there now,
Your fucking door won't budge,
I implore to come
Out and just
Rethink, think of what you love,
Your family, friends,
It'd be a tragedy to end
The impact that you've lent
To everyone that you've spent
Time with, I'm frightened,
Shite, in the sky there's lightning,
Rain is spiking,
Lighting up my devices,
Phone is fading,
Mike please start saying
That you're okay and
Th…. Sjaka… skaoaonwbkiuf

[Interlude]

And he never said anything again. At least, until a few weeks later.

[Verse 4]
Hey Josh, how have you been?
I've been here in hospital with therapy for three weeks,
We're moving slowly but moving at least,
We've already made leaps towards defeating my anxiety,
I've been speaking to a girl who's in hospital too,
We get along and after this we've agreed to
Meet for a date, still not sure what to do,
Probably wait for a movie then get some food?
Yeah, that'll work, and as for my uni work
Turns out they marked wrong, which hurt
My grade when in fact I have passed,
I'm confident for the rest, can't wait to do them at last,
Same with the driving test, I'll perfect that when I leave,
But enough about me, how have you been?
Just wanna thank you for being there for me,
Yes I was stressed but I acted irrationally,
You were there when I was down and felt like ending,
When depression was wrecking and I couldn't stop stressing,
But I never felt alone, no, and it helped me get headed
In the right direction, all ‘cause you sent a text message
