Mike Dreams - Just A Little More (National Suicide Prevention Week)

"All of my life, I have dealt with depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts. There have been many circumstances that have caused these feelings - some that are ones I can identify and others I cannot. But what is important is that through these darkest times, I made it through, and vowed to share my story about how real mental health is, and how those temporary feelings don't have to mean a permanent end to your life and existence. Everyday, we die just a little more. It's a part of our human experience. But we don't have to force that hand. Things may be terrible. You may feel at the bottom of the bottom. But if you're not alive, you won't see it change. Peace, love, faith and hope to all of you out there struggling. Seek help and stay alive, because you're here for a reason. Thanks for listening." - Mike Dreams

Song Lyrics

Everyday we die just a little more
Every night, we cry, just to ease the pain
I just hope we try just a little more
‘Cuz if you’re not alive, you won’t see it change

Lately, my vices are stronger than your advice is
In these bottles, trying to find
What the meaning of life is
And if our souls are worth a thing
I’d like to know the prices
Why do I feel the most alive
When I am close to lifeless?
My life is
Dodging triple 6’s
Aiming for triple 7’s
Highway to Hell, the next exit’s
The Stairway To Heaven
Something better can save me
I’m trying not to miss it
Writing letters like “Dear Amy”
Baby, you should have listened
Tried to make you go to rehab
But you was steady sippin’
But in my mirror
It’s clearer that I’m not any different
My inner hindrance
Reminiscent to Hendrix
I was all along the watchtower
‘Bout to jump from existence
Sadistic, but God had to stop me
His spirit watching’
The angel of Janis Joplin
Told me I had other options
All of this tugging at my heartstrings
Like Robert Johnson
Playing Blues at the crossroads
Singing all them off notes, like…

Everyday we die just a little more
Every night, we cry, just to ease the pain
I just hope we try just a little more
‘Cuz if you’re not alive, you won’t see it change

These past years
I lost some peers to suicide
I guess it came to a point
Where it was “Do or Die”
And they chose the latter
All they had to do was climb
I wish they would have chose the latter
But I just had to remind
Myself of when I was close to that same position
Pity Parties on that Motel floor
Bottom shelf vodka to wash down
What was not prescription
Screaming I don’t wanna live no more
Is it cries for attention?
No, I’m really needing help
I’ve been pushing to the limits
I can’t do this by myself
Where is God?
Where is she?
Where is everybody else?
Nevermind, I don't need nobody help
I need help
What I’m doing?
What was going through my mind
When I was going through it?
Same thing going through Cobain’s head
Before the bullet
That knock on the door
Gave me time to think twice
And I think that phone call saved my life
Yo, you saved me life...

Everyday we die just a little more
Every night, we cry, just to ease the pain
I just hope we try just a little more
‘Cuz if you’re not alive, you won’t see it change
