This is probably one of my favorite songs….. EVER! I really can’t explain how much this song moves me emotionally and physically. I’m in a whole different place and planet when i got my headphones on rocking out to this song (and band in general)
The reason i’ve decided to post this song is because this next week a lot of my friends will be going back to school at Washington State University. It has finally hit me that i won’t be going back to college (for now). I've successfully achieved my degree of a Bachelors of Arts in Music at the most wonderful Seattle Pacific University where i have very close friends that mean a lot to me (that I dearly miss, i want to stress that I DEARLY MISS ALL OF YOU! especially the music majors).
For some reason though this song brings out the beginning of my college career in me, at WSU. Maybe it’s the empty thought provoking instrumental at the beginning or the presence of the simple echo of the piano. Maybe it made me think of the questions i was trying to answer at that time; What I wanted to major in; English or Music? If Washington State was the right school for me. Maybe it was the break down at the end of the song with the lyrics “We Better Bust Them Out." So many questions unanswered and so many regrets made and not taken. My dad always told me never regret anything you do. It happens, make the best of it. I’ve tried to live up to this and I keep trying daily. Don’t give up, don’t let people hold you back, don’t live in regret, and point out the faults of your life.
I’m happy and content for now… give me a year or so… we’ll see.
