We’ve got mixtapes and we’ve got heartache, we’ve got memories we haven’t made yet. We’ve got nights under covers under stars, and we’ve got days that we never want to end. And I promise we will miss all of this someday. And I promise we will miss these days.
And I will always be there to hold you up, and I will always forgive you when we fight, and after all this time I have learned that all those wishes lead to was bad decisions and failure. But you are the one thing that I got right.
Old Gray - Her Tongue Was Tattooed On The Back Of Her Teeth
I remember hearing this song for the first time, driving with my friend Mike right after it had come out. Raph went to our high school, so we knew about them fairly early on. It was the coolest thing ever. They’re definitely one of the first screamo bands I listened to.
“I am no longer fine. The discomfort has spread to my blood; my lungs are working overtime and I feel dead and buried. I am walking around as a ghost haunting my former self. So while we do our best not to stare, would you tell me what we are celebrating? We idolize death until we are faced with it, and we struggle to realize that if we just let our guard down we would realize that life is worth living. I want an army to fight for me. I want to admit that it is ok to be strong. All of my enemies will feel my rage; all of my enemies will see what’s in store. I will level cities. I will torch the whole damn room. I am taking this all to heart. And after all of this, if I’m still not satisfied; if I still feel I could do more? I am taking this whole thing down. After all the songs, and after all the years deep down I know that this heals nothing. This heals nothing.”
