"Wake Up" by Silverstein



"I crossed over, I lost myself.
I saw the light. I went to hell.
But the devil never looked my way.

I closed my eyes and I tried to remember
all the things that had brought us together here.

Wake up, thereʼs somebody calling.

From high above I heard the screams
of emotionless machines who just see
flatlines.

Now Iʼve lost my tomorrow.
I paid the debt of the time Iʼve been borrowing.

Nothing can save me.

Wake up, thereʼs somebody calling.

Images are fading.
Thereʼs nothing in the mirror.
End is now. End is here.

If you let me back in nothing would be different.
End is here. All I am is a dead reflection.

Wake up, thereʼs somebody calling.
(All I am is a dead reflection.)"

Music Video: "September's Children" by Rise Against



"Bang bang go the coffin nails, like a breath exhaled,
Then gone forever.
It seems like just yesterday,
How did I miss the red flags raise?

Think back, the days we laughed,
We braved these bitter storms together.
And brought to his knees he cried,
But on his feet he died.

What God would damn a heart?
And what God drove us apart?
What God could...

Make it stop, let this end,
Eighteen years pushed to the ledge.
It's come to this, a weightless step,
On the way down singing.

Bang bang from the closet walls,
The schoolhouse halls,
The shotgun's loaded.
Push me and I'll push back.
I'm done asking, I demand.

From a nation under God,
I feel it's love like a cattle prod.
I'm born free, but still they hate.
I'm born me, no I can't change.

It's always darkest just before the dawn.
So stay awake with me, let's prove them wrong.

Make it stop, let this end,
Eighteen years pushed to the ledge.
It's come to this, a weightless step,
On the way down singing.

The cold river washed him away,
But how could we forget?
The gatherings hold candles,
But not their tongues.

And too much blood has flown from the wrists,
Of the children shamed for those they chose to kiss.
Who will rise to stop the blood?
We're calling for,
Insisting on,
A different beat, yeah.
A brand new song.

(Names called)
Tyler Clementi, age 18
Billy Lucas, age 15
Harrison Chase Brown, age 15
Cody J. Barker, age 17
Seth Walsh, age 13

Make it stop, make this end,
This life chose me, I'm not lost in sin.
And proud I stand, of who I am,
I plan to go on living;

Make it stop, let this end,
All these years pushed to the ledge.
But proud I stand, of who I am,
I plan to go on living."

"Mirror Box" by Silverstein



"Showed up, shot down, same day.
Deep breaths, short steps, same way.
Your house I know it’s okay.
I left but I wish I had

Stayed up, slow down, it’s too late.
I still had more to say.
How much could my words weigh?
I left but I wish I had

stayed the night.

A little bit broken, I’m not the only one.
A little bit desperate, I’m not the only one.
I’ve got a feeling that you feel the same.
We got a sickness and we know it’s name.

A little bit broken I’m not the only one.

Old glass, new scene, same face.
Bad blood, deep cut, same place.
I just wanna be okay.
You left but I wish you had

Stayed here, I can’t see straight.
I need to hear you say,
we caused this hurricane.
We’re gone, but I wish we had

stayed the night.

And in this moment, I need the past.
You burned the bridge, I built a home in the ashes.
Why should I forgive you?
It’s been a long night, I’ve had enough.
I made my bed in the dirt and the dust.
I swear I never meant to

stay the night."

Throwback Thursday: "Ides" by Forever Came Calling



I'm not scared, life is a game full of false starts.
Losing myself inside of its scars. 
I'm losing myself, I don't know what to do.
Choosing myself, thought I was over you.
A child of March, so I was battle born.
But these ides have kept me that steady course.
I saw the same view every day, same you every way.

Just make mistakes 'cause you'll never be the same again.
And I'm not worth your while, but what's your while worth again?
I did my best to keep all of your fucking secrets in.
But now they're bleeding out from every god damn open end.

I did my best to keep my restless head
off of your floor and out of your bed.
Convinced I'll die alone,
but I'll do it with a smile on
'cause I did it on my own.

Just make mistakes 'cause you'll never be the same again.
And I'm not worth your while, but what's your while worth again?
I did my best to keep all of your fucking secrets in.
But now they're bleeding out from every god damn open end.

Feel you draw breath in like I'm part of your past.
Let me out of your lungs and into your flask.
I kept it quiet, I held in my grief.
I gave a simple choice, the drugs or me.

Just make mistakes 'cause you'll never be the same again.
And I'm not worth your while, but what's your while worth again?
I did my best to keep all of your fucking secrets in.
But now they're bleeding out from every god damn open end.
