LYRICS:
I’ve been thinking about my father lately, the person that he made me, the person I’ve become
And I’ve been trying to fill all of this empty, but fuck I’m still so empty
Yeah, I could use some love
And I’ve been trying to find a reason to get up
Been trying to find a reason for this stuff
In bedroom and my closet, the baggage in my heart is still so dark

Modern loneliness
We’re never alone but always depressed, yeah
Love my friends to death but I never call, I never text
La di da di da, yeah
You get what you give and you give what you get, so
Modern loneliness
We love to get high but we don’t know how to come down

If I could break my DNA to pieces, rid of all my demons
If I could cleanse my soul
Then I could fill the world with all my problems, but shit that wouldn’t solve them
So I’m left here alone
And I’ve been trying to find a reason to get up
Been trying to find a reason for this stuff
In bedroom and my closet, the baggage in my heart is still so dark

Modern loneliness
We’re never alone but always depressed, yeah
Love my friends to death but I never call, I never text
La di da di da, yeah
You get what you give and you give what you get, so
Modern loneliness
We love to get high but we don’t know how to come down, down, down, down, down, down
We don’t know how to come down, down, down, down, down, down
We don’t know how to come down, down, down, down, down, down
We don’t know how to come down, down, down, down, down, down
We don’t know how to come down

Modern loneliness
We’re never alone but always depressed, yeah
Love my friends to death but I never call, I never text
La di da di da, yeah
You get what you give and you give what you get, so
Modern loneliness
We love to get high but we don’t know how to come down, down, down, down, down, down

We don’t know how to come down, down, down, down, down, down
We don’t know how to come down, down, down, down, down, down
We don’t know how to come down, down, down, down, down, down
We don’t know how to come down
Modern loneliness
We’re never alone but we’re always depressed, yeah

  1. Today my workmate dropped a hammer on my head but I was wearing a helmet ..
    He didn't really care and his apology was pathetic
    That same guy witness him partner collect a tool on his head( he didn't drop the tool) and he was really worry
    Sucks being Tuesday in between Monday and Wednesday

  2. This song really hits me hard, specially the line "Love my friends to death but I never call and I never text them."

    I lost my best friend a few days ago very unexpectedly. She got sick this quarantine and 2 weeks later, she was rushed to the hospital, and that's where we lost her. I regret that I didn't talk to her as much as I did before quarantine. I wouldn't even know that she was suffering if it weren't for our friend. I am emotionally unstable, depressed, and I harm myself by cutting and she knows that. She didn't want me to worry, and I hate it so much. I could have taken care of her, talked to her and sing her favorite songs for her. I could have done so much more instead of isolating myself from everyone just because I didn't want to pass my 'pessimist energy' around. 

    If you ever see this comment, please please please don't forget to talk to your friends. Tell them how much you love them and how important they are to you. It wouldn't hurt to ask how they are doing and keep in contact with them everyday. We never know what might happen next and I just don't want you guys to experience what I have gone through. It's never too late to message them or give them a call to ask how they are doing. Ya'll take care, stay safe and healthy~

  3. It's good to have a music and song like this because it really like a real life story.I hope many singer can make a lot song like this peace guys!!!😇😎☺️

  4. I felt this part of the song the hardest👇

    If I could break my DNA to pieces
    Get rid of all my demons
    If I could cleanse my soul
    Then I could fill the world with all my problems
    But, shit, that wouldn't solve them
    So, I'm left here alone

    I have really bad depression and anxiety lately and thia song is making it easier for me to cope ❤

  5. If I could break my DNA to pieces

    Rid of all my demons

    If I could cleanse my soul

    Then I could fill the world with all my problems

    But, shit, that wouldn't solve them

    So, I'm here left alone

    As an introverted extrovert who has a terrible problem of sharing or even self-validating/acknowledging my problems, this hit home hard. The chorus is relatable af for our generation and myself (sadly), but this verse really personally got me. Also fuck I’m still so empty Yeah, I could use some love lol
