As It Is - The Great Depression Lyrics

Hello consumer
I know you're there
So let me sing you this new dose of lies we've carefully prepared
Hello consumer
Just close your eyes
And listen close enough and this song might just save your fucking life

We live in the Great Depression
This is how we sell our lies

I'm the poet and the problem
I'm the blade and I'm the stitch
We tell you it's okay to die to stop you giving in
I'm the poet and the problem
I'm the sickness and the cure
We tell you what you wanna hear cause we're so insecure

You think you know me
When I feel down
Another song's another reason I'll just leave you here to drown
Call me dishonest
Call me a fraud
But you've been singing that for years and that's what got us where we are

We live in the Great Depression
This is how we sell our lies

I'm the poet and the problem
I'm the blade and I'm the stitch
We tell you it's okay to die to stop you giving in
I'm the poet and the problem
I'm the sickness and the cure
We tell you what you wanna hear cause we're so insecure
(We're so insecure)

Hello consumer
Just close your eyes
Listen close enough and this song might just save your fucking life

We live in the Great Depression
This is how we sell our lies

I'm the poet and the problem
I'm the blade and I'm the stitch
We tell you it's okay to die cause we don't give a shit
I'm the poet and the problem
I'm the sickness and the cure
We tell you what you wanna hear cause we're so insecure

(We're so insecure)
You think you know me

As It Is The Great Depression Comments
  1. Soda Tubez

    Such a good song

  2. Ï’m rėãłlÿ tīrêd

    To be honest though I am the Great Depression

  3. Meg Barnes

    One of my favourite songs ever, and so clever too.

  4. Leigh

    Just recently heard about as it is and I’ve deffo found another band to add to the ever growing list👍🏻🖤

  5. Some girl named Abby

    I freaking love this album

  6. Sigfried Bigcheese Van MemeLord II

    This album would be good hardcore if not for the annoying pissy drums. If every track sounded like The Reaper it would be so much better

  7. Royal Subjects

    Cant wear my As It Is shirt anymore =[

  8. Jessie does things

    Oh my God it's a stock market graph I'm such a dumb bitch I thought it was a lightning bolt arrow

  9. Obsessed Fan

    A MESSAGE TO ALL HATERS: Get the fuck outta here.

  10. Ecehan T

    Why there's 69 dislikes :():

  11. Lily Usher

    Saw this live yesterday, so good!!

    Obsessed Fan

  12. I want to dieeee

    Went to see them live last night, best show yet

    Obsessed Fan

    LUCKY 😭😭😭😭😭

  13. Angelo Conway

    I did a cover for this

  14. aity


  15. Obsessed Fan

    I so am buying this album

  16. Rebel Panther

    This kinda sounds like an Emo version of "Billionaire" by Travis McCoy ft. Bruno Mars, go listen to that song and then, listen to this song closely. Honestly, I was expecting a heavier sound because of the song title but whatever...👍💞

  17. Ecehan T

    I am really thankful to As It Is for being emo and doing music

  18. iamaturtle !

    *Patty's depressed, Am not sure how I feel*

  19. Zahra Ahmad

    Is it just me or is Patty heavily auto tuned on this record??

  20. Dylan Hitsman

    The lyrics are so clever. Props to As It Is and especially Patty!

  21. Julie Harris

    Most of the bands that I've loved are either pulling away from the emo culture look and removing the black and changing the style to fit the crowd. Not As It Is heading in the emo direction, in my opinion, it's cool they're standing out with this look. It is totally different from dial tones and the past but I like it.

  22. Christina Hall

    How much this band has changed since I saw them a year ago is amazing. But I love it

  23. Jinxer


  24. Draike

    Hello fearless. I'm a long time PTV fanboy. This is your new toy. Promote them and add better writers. These guys will be big if you see their potential. If no attention is given, then they're wasted on you.

  25. Over 9000

    what a load of dog wank

    Obsessed Fan

    Hey! Leave.

  26. Glenn Millo

    This album should be renamed "The Great Nostalgia".

  27. Ya_gurl_kendra 84

  67. tenesajuancruzenyb

    Myotic Tesseract

    I don’t think he’s been in any bands before As It Is. Only features. I do know that he’s definitely not a metalcore vocalist xD


    Myotic Tesseract So I'm wrong, thanks, beautiful person

    Royce Winters

    Dylan Hitsman

    @Royce Winters someone's drunk, but honest haha 🖖🤘

    Royce Winters

  95. Aliah Fendy

    good song to listen to 🤤🤤

  96. rezandra yoga

    Saw the notification on my phone when i'm in class, holy shit the teacher havent knew im about to watch this in the student bathroom

  97. ROARraps

    If the thing that gets you through hard times is your emotional well-being, then you’re just going to go up and down all the time. It makes sense to me if you don’t have something higher than yourself to hold onto when life gets tough, why are you could ever flow and depression based on the music you listen to. I really liked the route the band went with the song, it says a lot.

  98. lovely

    Oh hello, Patty
