“The awkward transition of weaning myself off of you.
Hearing your voice brings me crashing down.
The crusade against my sanity is going well.
I never wanted to be bitter but I’ve lost faith in us.
I thought I’d know you forever, now I just wish this would end.”


JEROME’S DREAM - 12/07/99 Amherst, MA

Jeromes Dream was a Connecticut screamo band, active from 1997 to 2001. The band had a unique vocal style - singer Jeff Smith opted not to use a microphone while performing live, instead screaming unamplified at the top of his lungs. The band was known for playing very short sets, usually no longer than 10 minutes. According to Smith, they thought 10 minutes was all they needed to get their point across.

“Jeromes Dream cannot be described in words by any means. It is the sound of your id, your unconscious train of thought, battling with your consciousness. An introverted explosion. A dream.”

“In the last weeks of his life,
Ted, a high school senior,
drew fantasy cartoons
and recorded his thoughts
in a secret code that only a
close friend could decipher.
Part of Ted’s decoded obituary,
written shortly before he
killed himself read:

‘My I.Q. is one-hundred and fourty-two.
My mind is diseased, that I know.
I am going to kill myself.
What a relief it was.
I am so much better now.
You cannot do wrong when you are dead.
Time is infinite and we are at the beginning.’”

It’s repetitious. I can’t figure out how to let go. 
It’s repetitious. I tried to find a way to say goodbye, but you weren’t there. Off on cloud nine. Off on cloud nine.

I cut off my arm, but it still didn’t compare to the shock of losing you.

Then I woke up.
