Please, take my pain away.
Please, wipe my tears and
Kiss my forehead.
Burying my face into the pillow,
I wanted to escape into a far away place that holds no fear, pain, or sadness.
You came through the bedroom’s door and closed it behind you.
You must’ve heard my muffled cries when you…

"I’d do anything to taste you on my lips"

As I’m going through memory lane and reentering my childhood by listening to the bands I grew up with, I was going through their tags on here and I’m not going to lie when I say this -
There are 14 years olds on here claiming hipster remarks that they’ve listened to these songs since it came out…maybe 11 years ago?! I mean I was 10-11 when most of these songs were out but at leas then, those bands’ style wasn’t considered attractive or cool to wear. Hahahah my friends and I were the freaks of the school for wearing thick eyeliner, bagging pants with zippers, lace, chains, and wearing skateboard shoes… It’s just shocking how crazy subcultures become THE culture of teens nowadays.
So you may wonder, where’s this girl’s piercings, tattoos (or thigh gaps and bathtub pictures)? Well, for once, I found out for myself that music taste doesn’t shape who you are entirely. While my friends were diving into a more rave-goth subculture and/or doing recreational drugs, I thought how much i didn’t want follow that scene and changed. I felt bad because I remembered talking to this other girl back in 6th grade and told her were going bring that sort of subculture in that school because we thought it was cool! Now she’s in hardcore recreational drug use, getting some form of education to make up an GED and maybe an community college degree or certification while there’s me, receiving my bachelors and moving into masters and doctorate education, studying a population in the US who were for the longest time outcasts years later.

It’s crazy!
But beautiful!

but i think my point is that subcultures and dominant cultures always change - very rapidly and in some cases you are agent of how you want to live but in other cases, you’re acting like a by product of society.

Jesus Christ // Brand New

"Well, Jesus Christ, I’m alone again, so what did you do those three days you were dead? ‘Cause this problem’s gonna last more than the weekend. Well, Jesus Christ, I’m not scared to die, I’m a little bit scared of what comes after. Do I get the gold chariot? Do I float through the ceiling? Do I divide and fall apart? ‘Cause my bright is too slight to hold back all my dark, and the ship went down in sight of land, and at the gates does Thomas ask to see my hands?"

I remember the time when this song was brand new…haha get it? Brand new?! zing!
Damn I used to lay in bed in the dark (as I am currently now) & just cry over this song.
So beautiful.

You say that you want respect
Well then you better get some for yourself.
'Cause all that I see right now,
Is someone who’s lost and insecure.

Finch // What It Is to Burn

Heard this tonight, forgot this song and how much I loved this song.

Their album was part of my adolescence.
