How Does That Make You Feel

/Video starts with a woman in a suit wearing glasses opening a door.
/"Next," she announces
/A man follows her in, and as she closes the door we see the word 'psychologist' on the outside of the door.
/camera switches to view of a couch and a chair
/She sits in the chair, he fidgets and then sets on the couch...

Tell me why you think you're feeling so bad
Tell me all about those scary dreams you've had
Tell me your deep and darkest fears
Tell me how you think you're going to just disappear
Tell me do you think the monsters are real?
How does that make you feel?
Tell me how does that make you feel?

The scariest thing is peering into your soul
And seeing nothing but the blackness of coal
Darkness washing over you
The feeling that you know the worst is true
Something you don't want to face
The prospect of leaving without a trace
Tell me how does that make you feel?
How does that make you feel?

Tell me all about your hopes and dreams
Tell me how you're coming apart at the seams
Tell me how you feel about your place in society
Tell me how that feeds into your anxieties
Tell me do you think you have a heart of steel?
How does that make you feel?
Tell me how does that make you feel?

The scariest thing is peering into your soul
And waiting for the loneliness to take control
Darkness washing over you
That feeling that there is nothing you can do
Something you don't want to face
That this world is not your place
Tell me how does that make you feel?
How does that make you feel?

/the camera goes to a closeup of the patient and he says,
/"Just fucking great."
/camera switches to her leading him to the door
/"I think we've made great progress this session, same time next week?
