Check out the incredible artist!

I remember blocking out everyone and everything from my life for about a year and half because I was too anxious to leave my house. There was this underlying panic that wouldn’t just leave. I pushed so many people away, not because I didn’t love them, but because I was afraid to see them. It’s hard to explain. I’ve been fighting like crazy to face these fears and not allow own. I don’t want the thing I hate most to tell me how I’m gonna live my life. I hope you guys like this one. Tried to be as honest as possible. Love you all.

You take all my energy you
Taunt me til my wrists are bleeding
Wish I was stronger had some peace
I’m just a slave to you
Every moment you are reaching
For my throat I’m barely breathing
Tortured memories got me sinking I’m
Just a slave to you

Look at all the things you’ve stolen
Every time you’ve made me frozen
I hate everything about you
Shouldn’t have to be this way
Constant panic constant pain 
I hate everything about you

Constant struggle every minute
I take one step you start you start medaling  
Puppeteering take me over
Just a slave to you

 Give you the reigns All Decisions   
You got me cornered I can’t pivot
Feel so worthless see you grinning
Just a slave to you

Look at all the things you’ve stolen
Every time you’ve made me frozen
I hate everything about you
Shouldn’t have to be this way
Constant panic constant pain
I hate everything about you

Sinking further
In your ocean
Reach for shore but
But waves keep forming
falling faster
You love to torture
Well here’s to one last
Fight to sever

Oh this bottled up rage inside
Starts to light up in flames tonight
Oh I’m looking you in the eye
You’re so sick you look paralyzed
Feel this power rush through my veins
As this milestone it separates
I link it to your neck I
Watch you sink I catch my breath

Sinking closer
To your glory
Silver shores take
Every worry
See you beaming
Lost in wonder
All my anxious
Thoughts they slumber

  1. Another one that hits so heavy and close to home. Feels like I really do give in to my anxiety so much despite my best efforts to fight against it. I hope one day I’m able to overcome the demons that it draws out too, and I can live without its weight always bearing down. Thank you for doing such a phenomenal job explaining it all, and sharing your story. Much love, Nathan.

  2.

  4. Lord, I need you everyday, every minute🙏❤️🙏 break these chains Lord, that I may serve you.

  5. You hate anxiety yet it is a life savior.. do you know sometimes God works through feelings.. Have you asked yourself what would have happend if you didn’t stay inside your house that whole time? And you simpley assume you missed out on a lot of super oprtunities? Hm.. maybe it was the only way to keep you to stay safe Meeting the wrong people at the wrong time or something bad. Maybe your guardian angels wanted for you to stay focused on doing what you are doing.. healing people through music. If you wouldn’t experienced it yourself then maybe the song wouldn’t have reached to so many hearts. I read in comments from your fans that they are so thankful for your music. Don’t misunderstand fear is dreadful..We suffer yes but try to embrace it, accept the fear and it will stop to control you. There is a reason for it. Try work with it. Maybe one day even get thankful for it. It is a part of us all. And at least it made you create something very strong, beautiful and courageous.. this song! And it helps others to understand and heal and stop being controlled by their fears. Now that is something not to hate.. it is a good thing🤗.

  6. An expansion of knowledge and understanding with one's self is all we could ever really ask for.

  7. My own service drives me nuts… But I live for the sheer thrill of the service. Just to put hope back into the eyes of future generations. 😊

  8. I don’t know if it matters, especially after so many views, but you have a spelling mistake at 2:12 (can it really be a mistake if you write both the song and lyrics? Idk, lol). It should be “reins” instead of “reigns”.

    Reigns = the action of ruling
    Reins = the implement used to control horses

    “Take the reins” relates to when you would pick up the straps used to direct a horse. It is used today in terms of controlling other things now that horses have fallen out of favor as a mode of transport.

    (From a severe agoraphobic, this songs speaks very powerfully to my experiences. Thank you so much, I cried a little when I first heard it. It’s so beautiful and true.)

  9. I discovered you 2 days ago. And your songs are truly amazing. Absolutely epic and stunning. So emotional and spoken from the heart. Really appreciate this. Thank you for sharing your inner demons with us. We are not alone in this world. 💜

  10. I can't believe I haven't found your channel sooner!

    This song hits so hard!
    All the times I could have acted differently, all the times I could done something instead of freezing, all the missed opportunities!

    All of this should be left in the past and focus on how I could do better even if the future seems scary!

  11. this is one of my favorite songs, along with burn, paranoia, suffocate and many others, I know so many of your songs by heart now. I've grown to be a huge fan of yours in just a few weeks or so. Your songs always end in a reaction deep inside of me.. I haven't been feeling so great lately.. also because of a once close friend of mine, who I'll never be able to talk to again.. Your songs helped me to really let all my emotions out and feel at least a bit better and helped me deal with a lot of stuff. Also the fact that you react to it seems every comment warms up my heart and gives me the hope, that there is someone out there who cares about others. You encourage me so much and I am so extremly happy that I found your channel. I will try and follow your lead, because you spread hope, love and so much more. Your honest words, your voice, you are truly amazing! Please keep up the good work, I always enjoy listening to your songs, it just helps me to understand myself and my feelings a bit better. Sorry for the sad story. I absolutly love your work, the way you act and you are one of the best and warm-hearded persons I've ever "met". Please stay like you are.

  12. I’m scared I’ll never conquer this and continue to self destruct my life past where I’ve already dug it. It’s just being locked in a room for hours makes everything even your mom outside the door strangers in the moment our anxiety is fighting us. Everyone have a motive that you can’t put a finger on and everything is against you, to everyone seriously going through this storm I understand, please get through it and find your peace.

  13. all the songs you make always match our story. keep being you and never lose hope. we love you

  14. I rarely comment, but felt the need to say how fantastic your music is. Found you through Cherry and took a journey through your songlist. I've enjoyed every track I've come across. Then I found Anxiety. As someone who has severe anxiety along with panic disorders… this song hit like a truck. You describe what Anxiety feels like and it resonates. Thank you for this song. I'm not ashamed to say I teared up. I feel heard. <3

  15. i just found ur channel 2 days ago … man i just like yours songs <3 i dont know why are u so underrated 🙁

  16. I need someone to hold me and tell me it’s going to be okay. This song does that for me. After what happened two weeks ago Sunday morning. Attacked on an elevator. Took a few Mui Thai kickboxing classes, so thankfully I was able to escape. I am scarred. I don’t think I will ever be the same. Having fibromyalgia, my body is hurting still. I can’t handle my anxiety and body pain. I have been drinking vodka just a little too much. Hopefully my counselor will get back to me soon. I am not afraid to admit that I require a professional. Nathan, I sincerely thank you for this song. It’s probably saved my life. 😣🙏…. “Brighter days ahead.” 🌞🌻

  18. I absolutely loved the vibe of this song and simple but yet beautiful lyrics. Tho my only complaint is that at the end it dropped pretty suddenly. But man 6 minutes I can't imagine how difficult it was to create such a piece of art. So let's change the "complaint" word to "noticeable thingy"

  19. You have a nice voice, and I like the fact that you put all your feelings in your songs.

  20. Words can't express how hard this hit me. It's the first time I came across your music but I will be constant listener if this is what your content is like.

  21. Your music is so realistic and beautiful. Every new song and old song of yours are outstanding 💜💜

  22. I feel you brother , we gotta fight through Anxiety , that bitch will keep making us feel we're hated and lonely , don't ever let it overcome you , fight hard. we love you

  23. First listened to you when Paranoia just randomly popped into my playlist and thought "goddamn, this guy and his voice are something else". Not just your voice though, it's everything about your music. The fact that every song is relatable to some or many degrees too. Welcome to my playlist forever Nathan. I've already binged so many songs already and I'm thankful to be alive at the same time as you to experience your gift.

  24. I kind of understand how you feel. I'm sorry you had to go through that. I've dealt with bad anxiety before, too. It just feels like it takes over your life, and debilitates you. One of the worst parts for me was not knowing why it was there, or how to stop it. Meditation helped me quite a bit at that time, especially to sleep, and my family was very supportive. I'm doing a lot better now, but it still nags at me sometimes. Hope you're doing better too.

  25. Hey Nathan. I listen to your music now more than anyone else's. Not only are your lyrics timely, but your voice is fantastic (and the underlying grit is particularly amazing). Your music has gotten me through some tough times. I appreciate all that you do, and hope to hear more.

  26. I love your music. My pass life was not great. Growing up with no family or real true friends. But when I found your music. It helped me deeply. You music have a emotional connection with us. Everyday I just didnt want to get out of bed and I put ur music on and it helps me not to give up and try harder. Thank you for giving me hope. Thank you for writing down our feelings

  27. Thank 🙌 Also, big thanks to everyone who listens and enjoys the track. I appreciate you all 🙏

  28. I don't really know what the abrupt stop in the end of the video means, but I'll still loop this cause it's AWESOME!
