Frights, The - Tell Me Why I'm Okay Lyrics




There's nothing like a healthy dose of reality
From the words on my computer and the cable TV
Everyone gets lucky so I guess I should chill
But if everybody's dead there's no one left to kill

You crawl across the kitchen eat your food on the floor
You cover up the window and you lock up the door
You're terrified of nothing as you weep through the day
Masturbate to memories 'til you're not afraid

There's a piece of me breaking inside everyday
It can't wait it can't wait to get out
Cause if the storm ahead's looking for someone to take
I can't wait I can't wait to get out

You spit out all the medicine they told you to take
There's nothing that can fix you if there is then it's fake
She says your spasms are genetic the depression will heal
Well I don't need no one to tell me how I should feel

You told your family that you should have stayed in the closet
Well you tried to get back in I had the key but I lost it
You're freaking out you calm down and you freak out again
And when you're hanging from the ceiling nothing else can be said

  1. T B

    I hope I'm not the only one but, like, is this Beck? Great track, a nice surprise really. These guys really do like to change it up

    There’s nothing like a healthy dose of reality
    From the words on my computer and the cable tv
    Everyone gets lucky so I guess I should chill
    But if everybody’s dead there’s no one left to kill

    You crawl across the kitchen eat your food on the floor
    You cover up the window and you lock up the door
    You’re terrified of nothing as you weep through the day
    Masturbate to memories ‘til you’re not afraid

    There’s a piece of me breaking inside everyday
    It can’t wait it can’t wait to get out
    Cuz if the storm ahead’s looking for someone to take
    I can’t wait I can’t wait to get out

    You spit out all the medicine they told you to take
    There’s nothing that can fix you if there is then it’s fake



    She says your spasms are genetic the depression will heal
    Well I don’t need no one to tell me how I should feel

    You told your family that you should have stayed in the closet
    Well you tried to get back in I had the key but I lost it
    You’re freaking out you calm down and you freak out again
    And when you’re hanging from the ceiling nothing else can be said

    There’s a piece of me breaking inside everyday
    It can’t wait it can’t wait to get out
    Cuz if the storm ahead’s looking for someone to take
    I can’t wait I can’t wait to get out

    There’s a piece of me breaking inside everyday
    It can’t wait it can’t wait to get out
    Cuz if the storm ahead’s looking for someone to take
    I can’t wait I can’t wait to get out

    There’s a piece of me breaking inside everyday
    It can’t wait it can’t wait to get out
    Cuz if the storm ahead’s looking for someone to take
    I can’t wait I can’t wait to get out

  3. Pranav Maini

    his voice is off tune with the music it’s just soo offf tune

    Dale Kay

    Or is the music just way off tune and his voice is IN tune?

  4. trandicosta92

    The utter, mindless, better-than-thou pretension in this comments section is depressing... Lol.

  5. Freek Achu

    Are you phishing? Lol

  6. Noah Midgley

    I feel like I've heard this before but I can't remember where.

  7. april

    Is this song about how im trans and want to die

    cause i relate to a lot of the lines being said here

    sid metzinger

    same hat

  8. Poopsidoodles jankins

    I dont need anyone to tell me how I should feel - makes me remember streetlights manifesto

  9. bill sultry

    Yikes deep and scary tune. Not sure I want to know what it's really about - But WAIT -> I LUV it!!! Good tune.

  10. Bean Boots and Broadway

    I actually like it

    schlonk crack

    yeah i didn't have high hopes for this album but after listening to it a few times it's pretty good

  11. VULCAN GAMING

    😐 #garbage

  12. Punks For Progress

    Honestly, Brett. I dont know what you are even up to anymore. Do you ACTUALLY enjoy the music you are releasing these days, or is it all about the dollars now? Watching those analytics and quarterly statements to see what moves and what doesn't? This is barely a step above Smashmouth, bro... BARELY! Do you, man, but I haven't bought an Epitaph release since I dont know when. Minimalist, uninspiring, techno folk nonsense like this probably has something to do with that...

    imagine a future

    Punks For Progress Didn’t expect to see a punks for progress comment here

    Julysbrown

    @imagine a future In an interview they said they signed after they recorded the songs.

  13. wondermint2

    Maybe it satisfies them artistically to do something different. But as indicated by the 47 dislikes they would do better commercially to go back to their garage punk influences.

    Lance Gonzalez

    wondermint2 glad i’m not the only one thinking this man!!

    trandicosta92

    Dude, the like to dislike ratio is like... 10:1. Explain your math.

  14. llatziri rosales

    i was also hoping for a heavier album but this doesn't disappoint it feels .. very close to home like all every day feelings r just thrown into song after song

  15. Isa Nicki Bean :3

    Epitaph Records... What the hell happened? CRUTCH wasn't any good either. (My opinion) Keep em coming. I'll listen, and give my honest opinion. Thanks.

    Zoe Firi

    Trash taste but k. Some people really can't handle a change in a band's style.

  18. ThaLed93

    Damn this is so different from what I liked about The Frights, its a pretty shitty album smh
