I've been listening to a lot of songs about mental health, things like depression and anxiety, lately so I put together a list of some of them. It's a mix of a bunch of different genres from different decades. I put an asterisk (*) beside my top 5 favourite.

1-800-273-8255 - Logic (Ft. Alessia Cara & Khalid)

"I've been on the low.
I been taking my time.
I feel like I'm out of my mind.
It feel like my life ain't mine."

Basket Case* - Green Day

"Sometimes I give myself the creeps.
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me.
It all keeps adding up.
I think I'm cracking up."

Everybody Hurts - R.E.M.

"When you're sure you've had enough,
Of this life.
Well hang on,
Don't let yourself go.
'Cause everybody cries,
And everybody hurts sometimes."

Fuckin' Perfect* - P!nk

"Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood
Miss "No way, it's all good", it didn't slow me down
Mistaken, always second guessing, underestimated
Look, I'm still around."

Heavy - Linkin Park (Ft. Kiiara)

"I'm holding on.
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on,
So much more than I can carry.
I keep dragging around what's bringing me down."

Kill Somebody* - Yungblud

"Right now,
I feel like I'm an alien,
I'm so fuckin' dangerous.
Cover up the evidence with medicine,
I can't find the light."

Leave Out All The Rest - Linkin Park

"I dreamed I was missing.
You were so scared.
But no one would listen.
Cause no one else cared."

Lithium - Nirvana

"I'm so happy because today.
I've found my friends.
They're in my head."

Mad World - Tears For Fears

"All around me are familiar faces.
Worn out places, worn out faces.
Bright and early for their daily races."

Medication - Yungblud

Your medication makes me high.
Just be patient,
I'm like a patient trying to find.
Run your fingers down my spine.
Your medication makes me high."

Pennyroyal Tea - Nirvana

"Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea.
I'm anemic royalty.
I'm on warm milk and laxatives,
Cherry-flavored antacids."

Psychotic Kids - Yungblud

"Psychotic kids, they don't know what they want.
Psychotic kids, we've got to keep control of them".

Pumped Up Kicks* - Foster The People

"Robert's got a quick hand.
He'll look around the room, he won't tell you his plan.
He's got a rolled cigarette, hanging out his mouth he's a cowboy kid.
Yeah found a six shooter gun,
In his dad's closet hidden oh in a box of fun things, I don't even know what.
But he's coming for you, yeah he's coming for you."

Smile - Lily Allen

"At first when I see you cry,
It makes me smile.
Yeah, it makes me smile.
At worst I feel bad for awhile,
But then I just smile.
I go ahead and smile."

Sweat* & Close Your Eyes - All American Rejects

"Maybe I'm a bad seed.
Blame it on the TV.
And maybe it was just because my grandma raised me.
Tell me what all this is.
Yeah, tell me what honest is.
You need a body cast for all my broken promises."
