C’Mon Sarah, It’s Great to Be Eight:
“This song is about my anxiety/panic disorder. It starts at 8 years old having a panic attack on my birthday at school. It then goes on to my passion for my music and the anxiety that comes along with wanting to be successful. It goes into being 15 years old and having a panic attack while watching myself on the Larry King Live Show at summer camp. It’s about the overwhelming feelings of everyone knowing who I am, and coming out as trans to everyone at once. It also goes into my addiction. I now have 7 years sober.
It’s about not fitting in with my fellows, it’s about being different and knowing I am different. It’s about trying to find a place. It’s about working really hard without a break.
The song is about where I came from and the feeling of gratitude for where I am now. My anxiety disorder was not something I could talk about openly until I learned how to manage it in a healthy way.” – Ryan Cassata
