Lyrics: Waterparks – Just Kidding

DOWNLOAD MP3

“Just Kidding” contrasts its soothing instrumental and catchy baseline with its rather gut-wrenching lyrics depicting confessions about Awsten’s Knight’s struggles with mental heath in tandem with social media during his break amidst the peak of the coronavirus pandemic.

Prior to the songs release, Awsten published four snippets of the song to social media:

The first clip which was published on December 27, 2020, depicts Knight playing bass guitar along with the bridge of the song.
The second snippet was posted on April 22, 2021, teasing the opening shot for the song’s music video.
The third clip was posted on May 9, 2021, showing an instrumental portion of the track, with the caption teasing lyrics from the song.
The final teaser was posted on May 10, 2021, showing Knight listening to a section of the bridge.

[Chorus]
I wish I was dead sometimes
So I wouldn’t have to check my phone
I wish I was dead sometimes
So I could spend a day alone
And not feel like everybody hates me
Making plans on another planet daily lately
I wish I was dead sometimes
Hahaaaaa just kidding

[Verse 1]
I packaged up my pain today
I wrapped the box in cellophane
It’s clear so I can see inside
To watch the worst of me escape

[Pre-Chorus]
But I like your apartment
I like how your hair smells
It buries all my problems
Until I forget the details
That’s all I can talk about
Without hurting your feelings
So check out all the love I get
It’s fake and doesn’t happen at all

[Chorus]
I wish I was dead sometimes
So I wouldn’t have to check my phone
I wish I was dead sometimes
So I could spend a day alone
And not feel like everybody hates me
Making plans on another planet daily lately
I wish I was dead sometimes
Hahaaaaa just kidding

[Verse 2]
I buried all my pain today
Shallow, not too far away (not far)
If you look then you could see inside (inside)
And watch the worst of me escape

[Bridge]
Plan A, Plan B
I’m numb but still I’m hurting
Mental, physical, it’s cyclical
But what they hand me
Plan C, Plan D
You can’t kill what you can’t see
I’ll take on every little thing you hand me

[Pre-Chorus]
But I like your apartment
I like how your hair smells
It buries all my problems
Until I forget the details
That’s all I can talk about without hurting your feelings
So check out all the love I get
And doesn’t happen at all

[Chorus]
I wish I was dead sometimes
So I wouldn’t have to check my phone
I wish I was dead sometimes
So I could spend a day alone
And not feel like everybody hates me
Making plans on another planet daily, lately
I wish I was dead sometimes
Hahaaaaa just kidding
(He’s just joking, it’s alright)
Not far away

[Outro]
And Repeat
