Jeremy Zucker “all the kids are depressed” Official Lyrics & Meaning | Verified

So I just graduated from college and it was
basically like my senior year, moving into a house with my friends. Living with people on a day to day basis,
waking up at noon like on the weekends and then my friends have already been up for like
3 hours because they have to wake up and fucking take antidepressants in the morning. And so the moment that spurred the writing
of this song was basically the realization that like half my friends at school are on
antidepressants. And like how many people mental illness is
actually affecting and how little people actually talk about it. I hope that the people that hear the song
just know that they’re not alone with whatever it is they’re dealing with. Nobody talks about mental illness. Nobody has at least like until like a couple
years ago. Logic’s song really did a lot for mental
illness in general but like one song isn’t enough to like get people talking about this. I was an RA for one year so I was like involved
in this tight-knit community of like ra-ra college spirit like go-getter people. They were always so smiley and so happy to
see me. In the beginning, it’s like, “Okay I have
energy for this.” But like after a couple weeks, it’s like,
“How are you still like this?” How do you have the energy to come at me with
that huge smile? And I just don’t have the emotional energy
to return that so it’s like… Are you actually that happy? It must take a lot of effort to put that huge
smile on your face all the time if that’s not how you’re actually feeling. I feel like there’s a certain kind of person
that’s just like in their head, overthinking every single thing to get on with their day. And then like that night, we go out and we
drink to like get out of our heads. Like it works for that night and it’s fun
and like you wake up the next day, and you feel like trash. And you start all over again. It’s like you’re not getting to the root
of the problem. So like, somebody that’s dealing with depression,
a lot of people just look at them like they’re sad or like they just dealt with something
that was hard to deal with. And they look at you and they’re like, “Dude
just like don’t worry about it.” “These things happen in our life.” “You’re just sad.” That line’s just basically about people
not believing that you’re feeling the way that you’re feeling. Depression, anxiety, mental illness is something
a lot of people deal with and I feel like the older generations are gaslighting us. When I look back at all the decisions I’ve
made to get me here, it’s like, okay, I was calm. I was rational. I was thinking about what I was doing when
I made these decisions and that’s why it played out for me. As soon as I get careless or like I do something
stupid on a whim, or like don’t think something through as much as I should, I’m confident
that like everything’s gonna turn out okay. I don’t feel like I have the right to really
weigh in on it especially cause I’ve never taken antidepressants or anything. There are people who need that shit to function
on a daily basis. And I think to say that they shouldn’t be
taking that is wrong. Some people need it. Some people don’t need it. And some people might need it sometimes.

  7. Jeremy: How do you have the energy to come at me with that huge smile?

    Me: dude, you wanna know why? because your existence cured our depression. You make us smile through your songs. Maybe without you, we are still inside our room, crying because because of depression. But you gave us hope that we can beat depression just by listening to your songs.

    Thank you for existing.

    “Some people don’t need it”
    “Some people need it sometimes…”
    can we just appreciate the truth in those little words😭❤️👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻YES

  11. Im really done with this society, everyone cares about what they want and not appreciate what they have….talk about what they should (example how this video is literally about how little people talk about depression and thats exactly how the comment section is) I wish I could just go to another "dimension" where people won't care about trends and being relative, where everyone just appreciate what's been given and just enjoy the moment ya know?

  12. Can we like stop talking about how he got big and you’re all proud and actually confront how awful mental health is nowadays?!
