draft lyrics about bipolar disorder and gender dysphoria

I wrote these lyrics a decade ago to explain bipolar disorder to myself. They also are about distraction-seeking behavior with regard to the stress of gender dysphoria:

I was a kid driving blind when I wanted distraction
Looking for God or a new manic high
Looking for privilege or a new discontentment
Looking for someone to blame

I, I had the best of intentions
I, I had the best laid plans
I had the best of intentions
I had the best laid plans

Checked in ecstatic…
…and checked out of mind
Checked back in, for a quick look around

breast growth: need to wear a bra from here on out
transition advice: tip well
