I've Been Going "Crazy"

Losing your mind and feeling burned out

Song 6: Crazy
 

Congrats, you've made it to what I would consider to be the halfway point of the "I Left Home" journey. Are you feeling a little tired? A little burned out?

Man I just had nothing left in the tank. I still remember the day when I broke down mentally and physically. I had gotten very little sleep for months now grinding away at the music dream, this in addition to my regular 9 to 5 job. We had worked so hard to that point and had not gotten a single break. nothing seemed to be working for us, and I was just so tired. The funny thing about being a creative, is there is only so much "creative gas" in your tank, and when you go too hard, you can use it up. I had definitely used mine up and it felt like I lost all my power. We had no choice but to just take a break for a few weeks and let the batteries recharge. I did nothing creative and tried to spend time outside. I just sat in this park by our house all week. Eventually I bounced back, and we knew we had to keep going.

"I've been going crazy thinking it will save me, but it never does"

- Crazy

Meaning Behind the Song

"Crazy" is about working yourself to the point of burnout. The feelings of having very little success in the face of that hard work is also what contributes to your burnout. It's also about taking time to heal, and deciding to keep going on you journey, and to not quit 💙

Lyrics:

Too late or early
The birds are chirping
I hate when the sun creeps in
Shit it's morning
Relentless pressure
Keep it together
Maybe I've just got insane

Cuz I've been going crazy
Thinking it'll save me
But it never does
And I can't help but feel a little angry
Yes or no or maybe
Should I just give up?
Cuz I won't lie I think I'm going crazy
I think I'm going crazy
Hmmm Yeah

I hear you locking
The doors your blocking
Maybe I'll just kick em in
Cuz I'm done knocking
I'm overheating
The days repeating
Stranded here alone for years

Cuz I've been going crazy
Thinking it'll save me
But it never does
And I can't help but feel a little angry
Yes or no or maybe
Should I just give up?
Cuz I won't lie I think I'm going crazy
I think I'm going crazy
Hmmm Yeah

I don't know man, we just might not be good enough
Yeah
Hey
We're not stopping

Cuz I've been going crazy
It never fucking saves me
But I'll never stop
And I can't help but feel a little angry
Yes or no or maybe
Should I just give up?
Cuz I won't lie I think I'm going crazy
I think I'm going crazy
Am I going crazy?
Hmmm Yeah
Am I going
Am I going crazy?
