My ship went down
In a sea of sound
When I woke up alone I had everything
A handful of moments
I wished I could change
And a tongue like a nightmare
That cut like a blade

In a city of fools
I was careful and cool
But they tore me apart like a hurricane
A handful a moments
I wished I could change
But I was carried away

Give me therapy
I'm a walking travesty
But I'm smiling at everything
Therapy
You were never a friend to me
You can keep all your misery

My lungs gave out
As I faced the crowd
I think that keeping this up could be dangerous

I'm flesh and bone
I'm a rolling stone
And the experts say I'm delirious

Give me therapy
I'm a walking travesty
But I'm smiling at everything
Therapy
You were never a friend to me
You can take back your misery

Arrogant boy
Love yourself so no one has to
They're better off without you
(They're better off without you)

Arrogant boy
Cause a scene like you were supposed to
They'll fall asleep without you
You're lucky if your memory remains

Give me therapy
I'm a walking travesty
But I'm smiling at everything
Therapy
You were never a friend to me
You can take back your misery

Therapy
I'm a walking travesty
But I'm smiling at everything
Therapy
You were never a friend to me
You can choke on your misery

    I think therapy was written because of few things.
    1. Alex's big brother. They got into a huge fight. After the fight Alex's brother killed himself. Alex blame himself for his brother's death and wrote to songs. Lullabies and therapy. The songs show his feelings. Mix of anger and sorrows. Therapy is so sad song and I always cry when I'm listening. Therapy is my favorite song.
    2. Therapy was written because of the kids nightmares. Their parents send their children to therapy but it didn't seems to help. They don't understand that the only thing that the kids need is a hug.
    3 . Therapy mean so much for me. I'm 14 and I've got troubles in high school. It helps me a lot. For me the song was written for me. Thanks to all time low and simple plan I know that I should never let no one to change me. I'll be who I am now and I'm not gonna change. I guitar but I feel so alone. There are 4 kids that always tell me that I should change and I'm a little brat and that no one cares about me. I have only 5 friends but the music is my best friend. Everyday i listen therapy and it helps me to be myself. Be who you are no matter what!
