“Tremble little lion man,
You’ll never settle any of your scores
Your grace is wasted in your face,
Your boldness stands alone among the wreck
Now learn from your mother or else spend your days biting your own neck”

-”Little Lion Man” by Mumford & Sons

 Peter Pettigrew.

Weep for yourself, my man, you‘ll never be what is in your heart. Weep, little lion man, you’re not as brave as you were at the start.

Weep for yourself my man, you’ll never be what is in your heart
Weep little lion man, you’re not as brave as you were at the start

Took a break from drawing me and the sib’s inquisitors to make myself sad.

THE SPACE BETWEEN STARS fanmix {LISTEN}

i. and so I’m fashionably numb sometimes, it helps to forget where we come from ii. sometimes I just feel it’s only me, who can’t stand the reflection that they see iii. whenever you’re ready, can we, can we surrender? ix. i am desperate if nothing else, in a holding pattern to find myself x. and i drank till my heart gave out xi. you did not break me, i’m still fighting for peace, well i got thick skin, and an elastic heart xii. tremble little lion man, you’ll never settle any of your scores ix. still I’m pinned under the weight of what I believed would keep me safe

THE GRUESOME TWOSOME

MAYBE WE’RE MEANT TO BE ALONE - BAD SUNS
and now I’m trying hard to heal // sometimes I fantasize about faking my own death // just to see how it would make you feel 

SHED MY SKIN - ALTER BRIDGE
are you ready for me // or purge my love // are you ready for me // oh ‘cause I’m dying to feel // what I have lost

ASHES OF EDEN - BREAKING BENJAMIN
why can’t I hear you // stay with me, don’t let me go // because there’s nothing left at all // stay with me, don’t let me go // until the ashes of eden fall

ANGEL WITH A SHOTGUN - THE CAB
they say before you start a war // you better know what you’re fighting for // well baby, you are all that I adore // if love is what you need, a soldier I will be

MONSTER - SKILLET 
my secret side i keep hid under lock and key // i keep it caged but i can’t control it // ‘cause if i let him out he’ll tear me up, break me down // why won’t somebody come and save me from this, make it end?

THE FALLEN - FRANZ FERDINAND
in my blood i feel the bubbles burst // there was a flash of fist, an eyebrow burst // you’ve a lazy laugh and a red white shirt // i fell to the floor fainting at the sight of blood

CONTROL - HALSEY
i paced around for hours on empty // i jumped at the slightest of sounds // and i couldn’t stand the person inside me // i turned all the mirrors around

AWAKE - GODSMACK
i’m alive for you // i’m awake because of you // i’m alive i told you // i’m awake swallowing you

COME AS YOU ARE - NIRVANA
come doused in mud, soaked in bleach // as i want you to be // as a trend, as a friend // as a known enemy, yeah

THE WITNESS TREES - STONE SOUR
i don’t know what you need // i’m scared of love, i’m scared of what it means to me // this empty house is burning down around me // so cold i don’t know why

MY OWN WORST ENEMY - LIT
it’s no surprise to me // i am my own worst enemy // ‘cause every now and then i kick the living shit out of me // the smoke alarm is going off, and there’s a cigarette // still burning

LITTLE LION MAN - COVER BY TONIGHT ALIVE
tremble little lion man // you’ll never settle any of your scores // your grace is wasted in your face // your boldness stands alone among the wreck // now learn from your mother or else spend your days biting your own neck

CINDERBLOCK GARDEN - ALL TIME LOW
tonight // take all the ghosts and all those skeletons // you hide // and bury them deep beneath the ground // let them rest // ‘cause you weren’t meant to bear that burden // look at the roses in your garden // you can breathe now and forget

Weep for yourself, my man,
You’ll never be what is in your heart
Weep, little lion man,
You’re not as brave as you were at the start
Rate yourself and rake yourself
Take all the courage you have left
And waste it on fixing all the problems that you made in your own head

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn’t I, my dear?
Didn’t I, my…

I’m just blown away by image and the symbolism in it.
