“I can’t quite help it. It’s overwhelming. Sometimes I wanna stick a cigarette in my eyes closed not sleeping. I’m stressed you’re dreaming, you’re softly breathing while I’m hyperventilating. Pacing, I’m losing my patience. Feeling bad ‘bout sh*t I didn’t do. So dramatic, panicked, I got pre-traumatic stress ‘cause nothing happened yet, but it did in my head.” – lyrics

‘i drive me mad’ tells a heartfelt tale of a paranoid young woman who has anxiety issues. Oftentimes, she hyperventilates, loses her patience, and feels bad about things she never did. Therefore, she wants to dye her hair neon green so she can forget who she is.

‘i drive me mad’ contains a relatable narrative, pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses frenetic instrumentation scented with an alternative-pop aroma.
