Un-Stressed

Mel Rook & The 7 Deadly Sins

I live
In a constant state of panic
It’s my default setting.

So, when everyone else freaks out
Cause the shit hit the fan
Or the world’s gonna end
I’m like, “What else you got?”

They always ask me,
“How are you so calm?”

I never say
Because it doesn’t matter
And this is not the time for that
Just stand over there and be quiet
I’ll handle this

You see people
We’re at DEFCON 1
High Alert
Battlestations
State of Emergency
All hands on deck
Clear the bridge

Cuz you guys…
You’re just visiting.
I live here

I

Live

Here.

But once it’s done
And everyone goes home
With a pat on the back
They say, “Good job.”
“Relax.”
“Let’s party.”

I can’t…

Because I’m a
High-strung
Stressed-out
Thin-skinned
Quick-tempered
Nervous
Neurotic

And that
Was the only time it’s useful

But you’re welcome.

– Mel
