This song is a good example to relate why aggressive music is the way it is. I know, a lot of people don’t really understand it or just feel it’s too harsh but it’s the best and most honest way for some things to be expressed. A lot of us do feel like this and when we from time to time feel like screaming, this way, there’s someone giving a voice to it.
Counterparts is a great band in this area, that I haven’t known about before a few weeks ago. If you like this, definitely give them a listen.
So I will pray to a God that isn’t there,
to a world that doesn’t hear, to anyone who will listen,
to keep me from becoming everything I promised myself that I would never be.
I do not deserve this.
When you hit that dark empty space and you lose sight of any light, the melancholic and uplifting music doesn’t really seem to help much. You can’t really listen to something calm when you’re being torn apart, restless and desparate and you just wanna scream. You don’t really wanna hear that you just have to get up and get better cause you know it’s just so far out of reach at the moment, it just feels like another thing slipping away.
What does help though, is to listen to someone who’s right there with you, screaming it all out for you, finding the words for you. At least some of it…
In the darkness you need something to hold on to. Keep fighting and keep the fire burning til you see the light again.
