Dustin Kensrue. One of my favorite musicians ever, also the singer of one of my favorite bands ever: “Thrice”.
Bursting with passion and raw emotion, full of heart and inspiration, this band is absolutely amazing. Probably the first band I ever listened to, that left me in awe of how meaningful and passionate music can be.
This song especially speaks to so much. Since I was very young, I’ve always been kinda desparate to find something more to this. As though this day-to-day life, it just can’t be all there is. Always with the thought in the back my mind, that everything I do, and everything I am… it’s just not enough.
I’m well aware that most of the songs (like this one and basically all of his solo stuff) very much revolve around his faith, but even though I don’t believe in any religion, I’m still finding meaning for myself in most of them. I guess that’s another beautiful thing about this kind of music. You can always take your own meaning from it.
This little quote is from another song called “Circles”:
True progress means
matching the world to the vision in our heads
We always change the vision instead
