Drop the Pop

Wow. I haven’t written anything here for a while. Nothing that I’ve published anyway. Hello! Ok, shut up.

A good friend of mine has just reminded me of a band that I fucking adore, that I almost forgot existed.

I always loved it, but then I remembered when I actually read about the song and paid proper attention to the lyrics. It’s beautiful:

The news hit me like a ton.
I didn’t know what I was waiting for.
That day came like a rolling thunder
And we were waiting for the sun.
Hey man, I haven’t seen you in a while.
Get the hell out of this circumstance.
Can’t fight this kind of feeling that we’re dealing with.
I feel helpless and useless.

It’s clear now, this day’s decided.
I feel like I’m defeated.

Shivers shake the ground we’re on.
Cold feet dance in nervousness.
Speechless with my hands in my pockets.
Skin cracks as we march in.
Sit down and let the feeling take control.
Grieving, can’t hide it with a smile.
I’m pretty sure I don’t believe in god,
But I can pretend for a little while.

It’s clear now, this day’s decided.
I feel like I’m defeated.
