itskinglizard this song is very relatable because I also have 24 pairs of odd socks, and I too have stopped believing that I'm gonna manage this

lyrics

I've got twenty-four pairs of odd socks and clutter
In my room, in my head
I've stopped believing
I'm gonna manage this

I've got a twenty-eight box of sleepers, another
Excuse to end me
I guess that you leaving
Has stopped me ignoring my shattered head

So put me in a box
Put me in a box

Well I'm lying awake 'til the birds scream their chorus
Sunburns through my windows
But closing the curtains
Is soaking the sheets from the lack of air

I'm trying to sleep through the gulls and the mowers
A skull splitting racket
Can't ignore my issues
'Cause kicking the sheets leaves my worries bare

So put me in a box with a lock on the door
'Cause it seems like I forgot how to manage my flaws
Now stress gets the better of me
Next steps are generally
Left next to gathering laundry

So put me in a box, put me in a box

Ice cream and empty drawers
Phone calls that I ignore
Did I ever act like this before?
Now my legs are quick to bruise
And I can't rest like I used to
Guess these ones ain't useful anymore.

So put me in a box with a lock on the door
'Cause it seems that my response is to duck and withdraw
Well what I put on you will now be
Best used to clear up debris but I'm
Scared to just function as me
So put me in a box put me in a box

Put me in a box with a lock on the door
'Cause it seems like I forgot how to manage my flaws
Now stress gets the better of me
Next steps are generally
Left next to gathering laundry
So put me in a box, put me in a box
