Who do you think you are?

The second Short-Play, ‘Who Do You Think You Are’, explores schizophrenia and is appropriately split into two different musical styles.
The opening track, ‘Sorry’, falls into the metal genre with heavy electronica influences and tells the story of when the protagonist caught his girlfriend cheating on him. At this point in time, however, he is still oblivious to her developing condition.
The Short-Play’s second, final and title track, ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’, is an electro-acoustic Hip Hop song, which describes the outbreak of the mental illness in the protagonist’s girlfriend and feels as though she wants to push him away. The protagonist notices her distorted perception of reality and her paranoia, causing him to distance himself from her, even though he still loves her a lot.

Cheer Up

‘Cheer Up’ (SP) tells the story of a relationship gone wrong, between the protagonist and a person suffering from depression, and is told over the course of two songs. The first song, ‘Puzzle’, describes how they met and the protagonist’s morbid fascination for the other person’s obvious mental pathology. They fall in love and form a relationship. This, however, doesn’t last very long, as the protagonist begins to realise how draining it is to be with such a disturbed individual. The second song and title track, ‘Cheer Up’, explains the protagonist’s frustration with their partner. The main character tells their partner to finally go through with the countless suicide threats.
