DOOZER McDOOZE: ‘Help’ – new video released for Mental Health Awareness Day 2017


Doozer McDooze
has gone and made a music video for a song he is releasing on Tuesday 10th October 2017 for Mental Health Awareness Day.

The Dooze’ told Peppermint Iguana, “This is a topic that means a lot to me, more so as I get older and I’m trying to spread the word in the hope of helping others by them relating to the song and becoming aware of the help that is available. As you know mental health is a universal issue which is becoming an epidemic particularly among young people, and most recently highlighted has been the fact that male suicide has been on the rise”.

“I feel that this topic needs to be spoken about more so that the feelings of stigma and shame which are attached to mental illnesses can become one step closer to being eradicated in our society.
By speaking honestly in this song through my lyrics about my own experiences and allowing my friends, family and audience to see a side of me that is mostly hidden away, I am hopeful that other people will feel compelled to talk to someone about how they feel; because sometimes there is no visible reason for mental illness to become such a huge factor in someone’s life”.

The song is called “HELP” – and this be the video

Lyrics
I Believe that our purpose on Earth
Is to create happiness
So why do I
Waste so much time
Sitting round and crying.
Is there a chemical imbalance in my brain?
Its making me feel totally insane.
Maybe that’s why
I waste so much sitting round and crying.

I WISH THERE WAS A BUTTON
I WISH I COULD TURN IT OFF
SOMEONE PLEASE
MAKE IT STOP
MAYBE THE NEXT LEAP
WILL BE THE NEXT LEAP HOME
I DUNNO WHERE THAT IS, MAYBE I’M JUST BORN TO ROAM

I’ve been told that I’m living the dream
But I’m sleeping with the nightmare which is me
Why do I spend so much time
Sitting round and crying

I WISH THERE WAS A BUTTON
I WISH I COULD TURN IT OFF
SOMEONE PLEASE
MAKE IT STOP
MAYBE THE NEXT LEAP
WILL BE THE NEXT LEAP HOME
I DUNNO WHERE THAT IS, MAYBE I’M JUST BORN TO ROAM
