Default Songs "About" Social Anxiety

Do you know any songs that immediately make you think of social anxiety?

Here's one to start:

http://www.youtube.com/v/RcKKbpBCM8Q
Lyrics:
I can't believe it's been a year
since I kissed my fears
on their salty lips and said to them
I love you all

I carried the weight of the world on my shoulders
for 20 years and look at me now

I've got something to say
about the last 12 months I've lived
I'm not the same kid I was when I was younger
I just thought you should know
I take a pill every day to help me deal with life

and oh my god, I've lost control
I stare at accidents in a sick attempt
to feel at all

I carried the weight of the world on my shoulders
for 20 years and look at me now

I've got something to say
about the family that I've lost
I hope my mother and my father think
that they raised a healthy boy
who needs the help of a shrink
to even leave the house?

and oh my god, I've lost control
I stare at accidents in a sick attempt
to feel at all
I'm not the same kid I was when I was younger
I just thought you
I just thought you should know
I'm not the same kid I was when I was younger
I just thought you
I just thought you should know

I carried the weight of the world on my shoulders
for 20 years, look at me now
and now
and now
I'm finding a way to forget everyone that I know

I can't believe it's been a year
since I kissed my fears
on their salty lips
and said to them I love you all

don't ask just follow
repeat and swallow
don't ask just swallow them down your throat
don't ask just swallow
repeat and follow
don't ask just swallow them down your throat

my best friend is a man with a lab coat and a grin
I hold my shaking hand and he gives me medicine
it almost makes me feel at home
but they slowly steal my soul
I tell him I still feel alone
"Don't worry someday I promise you will feel whole."

[x3]
oh my god
I've lost control
of the only thing in life
I had a hold of

Another:
http://www.youtube.com/v/Zv9zDC5HaKs
He wears his heart safety pinned to his backpack
His backpack is all that he knows
Shot down by strangers
Whose glances can cripple
The heart and devour the soul

All alone he turns to stone
While holding his breath half to death
Terrified of what's inside
To save his life
He crawls like a worm from a bird
(ALL ALONE)
Crawls like a worm from a bird

Out of his mind
The weight pushes him whispering
Must have been out of his mind
Mid-day delusions
of pushing this out of his head
Maybe out of his mind
(Out of his mind)

All alone he turns to stone
While holding his breath half to death
Terrified of whats inside
To save his life
He crawls like a worm
Crawls like a worm from a bird
(ALL ALONE)
(ALL ALONE)
(Crawls like a worm from a bird)
(Crawls like a worm)
(Crawls like a worm from a bird)


All he knows
If he can't relieve it it grows
And so it goes
He crawls like a worm
Crawls like a worm from a bird

Out of his mind
The weight pushes him whispering
Must have been out of his mind

All alone he turns to stone
While holding his breath half to death
Terrified of whats inside
To save his life
He crawls like a worm from a bird


All alone
He's holding his breath half to death
(Holding his breath half to death)
Terrified
To save his life
He crawls like a worm
(CRAWLS LIKE A WORM)
Crawls like a worm from a bird
(ALL ALONE)
Crawls like a worm from a bird
(ALL ALONE)
Crawls like a worm from a bird
(ALL ALONE)
Crawls like a worm
Crawls like a worm
Crawls like a worm from a bird

The Smiths-Never Had No One Ever, when Moz sings:

"now I'm outside your house...I'm alone...and I'm outside
your house. I hate to intrude..."

Thats weird when i was 12 my favorite band was senses fail, i love that song. I also love the used too, the bird and the worm was the first used song i listened too. I didnt know about SA at the time but im sure thats why those songs always stuck with me.

Ooh I love the song The Bird and The Worm by The Used! Personally the song Help I'm Alive by Metric seems to perfectly describe social anxiety.

Unwell - Matchbox 20

Everybody probably knows this song but here are the lyrics anyway.

All day staring at the ceiling
Making friends with shadows on my wall
All night hearing voices telling me
That I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good for something

Hold on

Feeling like I'm heading for a breakdown
And I don't know why

But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell

I know, right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know, right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be...me

I'm talking to myself in public

Dodging glances on the train
And I know, I know they've all been talking 'bout me
I can hear them whisper
And it makes me think there must be something wrong with me
Out of all the hours thinking
Somehow I've lost my mind

Thumbs up Social anxiety in Songs

Sonata Arctica has a poignant song called "Shy"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxZcFArCeKs

The Beatles "Eleanor Rigby" which has a Social anxiety theme about loneliness

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaRNrDaoMqw

To round it up is Dream Theater "Panic attack" a heavy Metal song that sings about anxiety and Stress.

I automatically think of Mad World by Gary Jules. It's so depressing though.
