Jarren Benton - Mental Issues Lyrics

I got issues
I gotta get through
They're gonna miss you when you're gone
I need a life line
Will I take your breath away
Or will I take my last today?
I got issues

I feel like everything is just falling apart
I don't feel the love so I question my heart
They only show you love when you're blessed in the charts
They left me out to drown so I wrestle with sharks
I thought some of you niggas was friends
When they think your buzz is gone
Them niggas dipping to win
I got news pussy niggas, Benton in it to win
As soon as you bounce back
They right back with you again
Fuck em'
I fucked my marriage up a couple days ago
She deserved better I got ways to go
And why do I feel so numb the pain should make you grow
More antidepressants to [?] down your throat
These fucking doctors trippin'
They give you cliche advice to offer you prescriptions
I try to hide the hurt like they can't see a fucking difference
Avoid all of my friends so they can't see a nigga slipping, uh
Stuck in a bed like fuck life
Sleep the day away
I don't wanna get up, right
Unattended to my kids
No energy to throw the ball like I don't wanna live
God I'm trippin' I see that I'm fucking blessed
Anxiety and fear [?] beating my fucking chest
I know it's just the sickness [?] my fucking flesh
Tho we ashamed to face it
Defeated by fucking stress

I got issues
I gotta get through
They're gonna miss you when you're gone
I need a life line
Will I take your breath away
Or will I take my last today?
I got issues

Thousands of fans you think that I should feel something
But I focus on the negative
I don't feel nothing like
Damn I'm supposed to be at the top
Maybe they think I fucking suck and that's the reason I'm not
Ay what these other niggas got that put them up on the spot?
I keep getting overlooked I fear that I'll never pop
Maybe they'll give me props on the day that I rot
Never get the rose until your body dripping in crops
I'm sick of hearing I'm underrated
I hope the people spread the word, I appreciate it
That's love
But to be honest with you I'm suffering
My demons taunt me everyday I feel like I'm stuck with them, uh
I understand why SwizZz rarely put out music
Cause he suffered with it too
Leaves your confidence ruined
Feeling empty
Too pussy to die
Pray you don't tempt me
Bottle of vodka I rarely fuck with the henney
I'm living lower than my expectations
No celebration
Death got a reservation
I pray that I find the courage to ask somebody for help
Scared to let you see my weakness
Suppressing ways that I felt
Just know that you're not alone
That's why I'm writing this song
I feel it like you feel it
Just find a way to move on
Some days I feel like I'm living in Hell
Gotta find a cure for this mental health

I got issues
I gotta get through
They're gonna miss you when you're gone
I need a life line
Will I take your breath away
Or will I take my last today?
I got issues

  25. Рикардо Карденас

    Maybe some of you reading this have not achieved great victories or maybe you have but either way it has nothing to do with the fact that all of you are important. All of you matter. Don't listen to the world when it tells you you're insignificant. You are more than significant. Your significance and importance does not come from what you do or don't do. God loves you.
    John 3:16-17
    For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
    Romans 5:8
    But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
    God made you with great intention, purpose and care. I know that sometimes in life alot of things don't make sense but I promise you there is life in Jesus Christ. I would have killed myself last year if there wasn't. I'm alive only by God's grace and intervention in my life. I have true peace now. There truly is power and grace in Jesus Christ.
    Only by God's grace can you be saved. Just recieve by faith what Jesus did on the cross. Ask God to forgive you, turn away from sin and stop doing it, ask God to empower and help you to stop living in sin. Believe in and recieve the free gift of salvation and right standing with God.
    Romans 6:23
    For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
    Ephesians 2:8
    For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,
    If you do decide to follow Jesus, please don't doubt if God forgave you, because if you do decide to put your faith in him then he will save you so live free from all doubt. Dont "try" to believe but truly believe without doubt.
    1 Peter 1:18-19
    For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.

  26. Justin Bohle

    You're my my favorite current rapper. You speak my life



  28. Just a guy From England

    So glad I've found this song! Heard it once and fucking loved it!! Love from U.K

  29. Nicholas Lynch

    Relatable tho 💯

  30. Sierra Curtier

    God damn

  31. Рикардо Карденас

    For anyone who is struggling with life. I wanted to kill myself last year. It felt like I had demons in my brain manipulating my mind. I couldnt think clearly. I couldnt choose my thoughts they were being put into me. Everyday it got worse. I barely ate, barely slept, I was dying. My brain hurt, I was constantly getting light headed. The world didn't look the same anymore. It didnt matter how anything looked even if it was beautful, everything looked like hell but I didnt want it to. I wanted to help people, I always have but there was a constant opposition that wasnt coming from me, I couldn't fix my mind. I was afraid to trust God but I knew if I listened everything would be okay.

    I failed two semesters of college because of this. One of the few friends I had died and because of this problem I couldnt be the brother he always was to me while he was alive. Then my nephew got a really bad sickness. If he would have died I would have died. At the time I felt like I failed alot of people, because I did and I felt like I had failed him, I didn't feel like I deserved to live. It didnt feel right. I tried to fix my mind so I could do better in this life but it only got worse. God healed my nephew from a disease that should have killed him. Real authentic bible following Christians prayed in the name of Jesus and my nephew was healed. Even the doctor asked us if we believed in God because he said my nephew was alive by some miracle. I didnt kill myself because my nephew survived. I kept going but my mind was still messed up. I kept letting people down.

    Eventually I got fed up with myself. I got to the point that I didn't care what happened to me. I disregarded myself completely for the sake of others. Even though my mind was absolute hell I read the bible, I prayed and trusted God.
    The more time I spent with God the less, worry, hate, anger and paranoid I got. I learned to love people that I had no reason to love. I dont want to hurt people.
    The only reason I still do mma is for my coach that got killed. The last thing he told me before he died was that he couldnt wait to see me in mma, I feel like I have to fight, I know he didn't die for nothing, it wont be for nothing. Eventually my mind was free from all that hell, it took awhile only because I had a real hard time trusting in God but once I just let go and trusted God no matter what I became free from all that mental hell. I have mental clarity now. I have peace, I can breathe. I know alot of things in life dont make sense sometimes but I promise you there is life in Jesus. All of you matter. Dont listen to anyone who tells you that you dont. You are more than significant. theres a guy named dan mohler on youtube that explains the gosple of Christ very well, Look up Dan Mohler- what is our purpose


    I've read it all man and from one human being to another you just gave me hope I have 10000 reasons to be like fuck life but seeing how you found the mental clarity is what stood out to me I hope one day I'm blessed with it as well your comment is appreciated

  32. BiggLynch

  46. cecilia andrea morales pallamares


  47. Stoop Lord

    The majority ain't even real no more. Even if you don't appeal to most, or if you're not the top selling in stores, that doesn't mean you shouldn't boast about it so just give em what you got in store and if you real then then the real gonna be the ones that are goin to be holding you close. They shoved pills down my throat since the third grade. Use to be outgoing, creative, and a natural born leader, it was quick to fade. Now I i gotta lotta doubt. Always got a lot on my mind consistently. Wish I could figure it out before it gon caus the end of me. You just keep at it and Imma do the same. Music Is my bliss otherwise I'm insane

  48. True Rhymes

    Always fuck with Benton!!!

  60. yorkinmi98

    I hope you make it through this in 1 piece Jarren. It's really hard to escape the thoughts of knowing the harsh reality of everything, especially when not many have any idea of how it goes in that battle. You are your own worst enemy/critic. Be confident in what you do everyday, even if you gotta change some shit. Good luck Brass Knuckle Benton.

    Dopest Shit Evah!!!🔥🔥🔥

  68. Michael Foster

    This song was created exactly 1 year after I started an anti depressant, got drunk, blacked out for 3 days and almost died on the 3rd day in a crash. This was right after my first suicide attempt, (30mg xanax) I think I was trying it again that day, just don't remember anything except for some friendly people taking me off a cliff, then hospital. I'm staying strong, though. I've been looking for and finding ways to cope. To anyone out there struggling like I was then, I've found that if you focus on it too much, it gets worse. You can get through it

  69. Brandenn finch
