Since his hospitalization, West's older song "All Day/ I Feel Like That" has resurfaced, the lyrics proving to be very relatable.
"Do you experience nervousness or shakiness inside, faintness and dizziness? / The idea that someone else can control your thoughts / Feeling others are to blame for most of your thoughts / Trouble remembering things, feeling easily annoyed and irritated / Feeling afraid in open spaces or in public / Thoughts of ending your life / Feeling that most people could not be trusted / Poor appetite, heart or chest pains?" he raps.
"Do you feel tempered outbursts, that you cannot control? / Feeling lonely, even when you are with people, feeling blocked / Feeling blue, sad, feeling disinterested in things, feeling fearful / Are your feelings easily hurt? / Feeling that people are unfriendly, or do you feel like people dislike you?"
West's lyrics are interspersed with the chorus line: "I feel like that all the time."
