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.

  1. Btw has anyone realized how the generations of our parents and grandparents were so much happier like 70% of my friends are anxious or depressed and our parents dont understand it because in their time people were genuinely happier and its very sad to shink about this :/

  2. He said like approximately 46 times in about 4 minutes. In case I’m not the only one who noticed it. I love this song though

  3. i think i lost the energy to smile since some of my friends stopped talking to me and ignoring me, and its been like this for probably 4 or 5 months and i hope that i can someone can give me that energy back

  4. Daaamn at last something meaningful! Please do EDEN next!!! Indie music has a lot more to offer than generic pop songs and has helped multiple people, pay them back with some love

  5. 1:34 omg same! I barely smile but I'm not depressed i just don't have energy to smile and i need that little energy that i have left for school and I'm just 15

  6. I really love Jeremy for this..I suffer with depression and anxiety and this was the very first song I listened to to help me not feel alone

  7. "like that night we go out, we drink like get out of our head, and the next day we woke up and feel like trash and start over again" probably the most truest thing happened in my life

  8. I told my mom how I felt and then we got a dog and I’m still feeling this and now I don’t trust my mom so I have to pretend that I’m ok now soo yay love life 😁

  9. 1:25 to 1:43 that’s exactly how i am.. I put a huge smile on my face but in the inside everything hurts but we have to show happiness even though we’re hurting on the inside and out

  10. OK I’ve known this song for like since it came out but I’m just now seeing the lyrics things like him explaining it and I know like not a lot of people are even going to see this comment but when he was talking about people being on antidepressants like and how everyone well so many people are suffering from mental illnesses I just I’ve never really talked about it well I have actually to multiple people in multiple different occasions but not on like a platform even though this is an a platform so I’m not famous but like random people are going to be seeing this. and I just want to say I’m diagnosed, I suffer with, I’m fighting,I have, depression, anxiety and some more. I take medicine for it. And that doesn’t change anything about me I’m still the same person I’m still a human like depression doesn’t define me it doesn’t define any of us.

  11. I love this song so much cause I'm pretty damn sure I have Depression, it definitely feels like it, and this song just helps me so much. Thank you Jeremy

  12. 2:25 – 2:38 truer words never spoken. This would've made me cry but i dont have the strength to. way too tired, even to cry.

  13. Why isn’t anyone even talking about what this song is about and what he’s trying to bring attention to. Like this song is so sad and helpful at the same time because it brings to light a problem that most people have but don’t ever talk about and helps people that have this problem to feel that they aren’t alone. Fr needs to be recognized in this way

  14. Random kid: Mom I’m depressed
    Random kids mom: Oh will try to feel better what happened?
    Random kid: I wanna be on this music video ok 👌 I need it
    Random kids mom: Ho oh your depressed brings out stand
    Random kid: No no no!! The belt stand the strongest stand ever
    Random kids mom: the world! time stops repeats hitting kid with the belt
    Random kid: Depressed for real
    Random kids mom: You depressed yet sweetie pie?

  15. Dis is MAH FAVORITE SONG!!! It’s such a true song, and here’s the thing about anti-depressants. I’ve dealt with depression for about a year, and it sucks. Although, being in depression means you don’t look forward to anything else. Your life might be great, and you just don’t realize that, and you go, “oh, my life sucks.” Or you get suicidal thoughts. I have as well. Let’s say you take an anti-depressant, and then you completely depend on that to even get out of bed! If you’re in the younger generation, like teenagers and kids, you might talk to your doctor about it. Maybe you are prescribed with an anti-depressant, but you don’t even get that your life is so much better than some others. If your life is “normal”, then? Think of someone who’s getting abused, someone with a mental illness, someone who’s lost their family, someone who’s homeless. But we’re only human. Just remember that you aren’t alone in what you’re going through. Love yourself too!🙂

  16. I need depreshon medicine or I have mental breakdowns and It gets to the point to wear I start to get suicide thoughts.

  17. I’m glad he can be open about this. When I explain my depression problems people either think I’m seeking for attention, being overly dramatic , or they just don’t care.
    My mom blames my sleep paralysis, anxiety , memory, anger, frustration, sadness, and nightmares on my phone

  18. I’m 13 and I starve myself
    I eat little at home to avoid my parents questioning me
    But at lunch during school I always skip it. Some of my best friends know why I skip lunch but they don’t do much about it

  19. Ok this may be weird but I’m happy when I’m starving and I cry myself to sleep sometimes
    I have like this deep cut on my arm that like has the top half of my flesh cut off and I enjoy it being there… I don’t really want it to heal
    I don’t put a bandaid on it either 😬
