Sick Boy Lyrics

The original tune sick boy by The Chainsmokers is a haunting, atmospheric track that seems to perfectly capture the feeling of unease and paranoia that comes with addiction. The song is driven by a simple, repetitive piano melody and features the echoey, processed vocals of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. The lyrics are cryptic and mysterious, hinting at the dark side of fame and success.

 

Weapons of Anew and Freddy Ordine have done a great job of capturing the feeling of the original tune with their cover. They've kept the same haunting melody, but with the addition of heavier guitars to give the track a more hard rock anthemic feel. The vocals are just as echoey and processed as the original, but more passionate and emotive as a rock version of the song.

[Verse 1]
I'm from the east side of America
Where we choose pride over character
And we can pick sides, but this is us, this is us, this is
I live on the west side of America
Where they spin lies into fairy dust
And we can pick sides, but this is us, this is us, this is

[Refrain]
And don't believe the narcissism
When everyone projects and expects you to listen to 'em
Make no mistake, I live in a prison
That I built myself, it is my religion
And they say that I am the sick boy
Easy to say when you don't take the risk, boy
Welcome to the narcissism
Yeah, we're united under our indifference

[Verse 2]
And I'm from the east side of America
Where we desensitize by hysteria
And we can pick sides, but this is us, this is us, this is
I live on the west side of America
Where they spin lies into fairy dust
And we can pick sides, but this is us, this is us, this is

[Chorus]
I am the, I am the, I am the sick boy
I am the, I am the, I am the sick boy
(I'm from the east side of America)
They say that I am the sick boy
(I live on the west side of America)
And they call me the sick boy

[Refrain]
Don't believe the narcissism
When everyone projects and expects you to listen to 'em
Make no mistake, I live in a prison
That I built myself, it is my religion
And they say that I am the sick boy
Easy to say when you don't take the risk, boy
Welcome to the narcissism
Where we're united under our indifference

[Bridge]
Feed yourself with my life's work
How many likes is my life worth?
Feed yourself with my life's work
How many likes is my life worth?
Feed yourself with my life's work
How many likes is my life worth?
Feed yourself on my life's work
How many likes is my life worth?

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm from the east side of America
I am the, I am the, I am the sick boy
I live on the west side of America
I am the, I am the, I am the sick boy
I'm from the east side of America
They say that I am the sick boy
I live on the west side of America
Yeah, they call me the sick boy

[Chorus]
I am the, I am the, I am the sick boy
I am the, I am the, I am the sick boy
(I'm from the east side of America)
They say that I am the sick boy
(I live on the west side of America)
Yeah, they call me the sick boy
