    Lyrics:

    Verse 1

    I leave my house early in a hazy blur
    Jump into my car now I’m driving on my way to work
    I’m nearly there, when I feel a sense of dread
    As these thoughts of despair start to creep into my head
    Like “Did I lock the front door?”
    I must have done of course
    But the more I think about it the more I feel unsure
    This happens every time and it’s always fine
    But it’s sod’s law - the time one time I don’t check I’ll get robbed blind
    I’m having visions of it flapping in the wind
    As burglars remove all my things even the kitchen sink
    I feel insane but I turn back anyway
    Coz if I don’t I know I’ll fret about it all day
    I get home and the door’s locked, obviously
    I feel crazy but at least I’ve got some relief
    I’m driving back now happy that there’s nothing wrong
    When suddenly I’m like “Wait, did I leave the oven on?”

    Yeah this one’s for my anxious people
    All my tense and my angst-filled people
    Who keep calm on the surface, and don’t seem to be nervous
    But underneath feel far from peaceful

    Yeah this one’s for my anxious people
    All my stressed out and angst-filled people
    Who don’t answer the phone to numbers that are unknown
    In case it’s someone that they don’t want to speak to

    Verse 2

    I get to work and now I’m running late
    Walk in through the door and say “good morning” to my mate
    She barely responds and seems a little unfriendly
    Which sends me spiralling into a frenzy
    Like “What could it be? Is she mad at me?”
    I spend the whole morning cracking jokes just to see
    Eventually she screams “I just got dumped”
    “Oh thank god, I thought it was something I’d done…”
    At this point the boss says “Oli you got a minute?”
    And my blood runs cold like “Oh god I’m finished”
    Is it coz I’m always late? Or all the mistakes I make?
    Or maybe all the personal emails I’ve written
    I walk into his office with my teeth gritted tight
    Tryna keep it light like “You gave me quite a fright…
    I’m sure that I’m only overreacting though, right?”
    As he motions to sit down and then says “Not quite…” (Ah shi…)

    Yeah this one’s for my anxious people
    All my tense and my angst-filled people
    Who pull up next to a cop and get sweaty and hot
    whether or not they’ve not done anything illegal

    Yeah this one’s for my anxious people
    All my stressed out and angst-filled people
    My hypochondriacs, who over-react
    Who get a mole and assume that it’s lethal

    Verse 3

    The evening’s no better than the day
    I go home and fall into my bed where I lay
    I pick up my phone up to text this chick I’ve been chatting to
    It’s been going well so I try to arrange a date
    I spend 20 minutes crafting the perfect message
    Lamenting over what to say before I send it
    Eventually I go with “Hey” and a smiley face
    Hit send and now I sit back and play the waiting game
    Straight away I see two blue ticks
    So I know she’s received it and she’s also viewed it
    But 5 minutes go by and still no reply
    Which is all my mind needs to go into overdrive
    So I type “If you’re not on it that’s fine babe
    At least have the decency to say it to my face”
    She writes back “Uh chill Mr Type A
    I couldn’t reply coz I was driving on the highway”
    Ah man what I goddamn mess I am
    I swear this problem that I’ve got is getting out of hand
    Coz now it’s started interfering in my daily life
    I wonder what it was that made me into this crazy guy?
    But the the truth I always was a morbid kid
    Worst case scenario - bet you I’d be drawn to it
    When my rents went away and were 10 minutes late
    I’d picture the rest of my life spent in an orphanage
    Maybe I should get some help and see a shrink
    But I’m worried if I tell ‘em all the things that I think
    Instead of commending me on my courage and my bravery
    They’d probably chuck me in a padded cell and throw away the key

    Yeah this one’s for my anxious people
    All my tense and my angst-filled people
    Who seem confident but get a compliment
    And wonder whether it was really deceitful

    Yeah this one’s for my anxious people
    All my stressed out and angst-filled people
    I know you think it’s just you, but trust me this is untrue
    How do I know? Coz it happens to me too
