Mental health illness of depression and suicide are real things.
It is scary because they are demons others can’t truly hear or see. But for the people who suffer from it, it’s rather constant because the thoughts are always there. It’s so difficult to be able to shut them out and escape.depression.jpg

Over the years these have gotten worse and more and more people suffer from it. On some levels the awareness is being bought to more people’s attention.
Just a few days ago the suicide of : Chester Bennington rocked the world as a whole. Linkin Park’s music had save millions and for Chester it saved him for two decades as well but finally the pain within got too much.

Imagine for him to sing these lyrics that he wrote, must have both been a way of releasing it from inside but also from seeing his eyes during live performances you would notice it was quite painful to associate these words to his past and memories. Music was definitely a hemisphere where he would go to escape and to express so much inside that he had built up.

From the words in many of the songs it clearly depicts his life journey, thoughts, darkness, happiness and emotions. So much power in these words alone. Let alone what was actually going on inside his heart and mind must have been a billion times more.

To have to result to taking that final step of taking his own life after experiencing the outcome of what happened when his friend Chris Cornell took his life and knowing the impact of it all and how hurt and hard it was on his family, friends and fans. Meant he really couldn’t take it anymore.
Suicide is never so clear-cut, you cannot blame the person who did it and you definitely feel so sorry for those they leave behind.

The very scary thing is, from experience I think a lot of people who have or are going through deep depression know that deep deep down they have locked a specific demon away as hard as they can. The demon that whispers to them to end it all. This is one of the hardest thing to do because it continues to fight so often to try to come out.
When I hear the lyrics from Linkin Park’s Leave out all the rest:

“When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I’ve done
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed
And don’t resent me
And when you’re feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest”

I feel like something inside of Chester knew one day if it happened when that demon manages to come out and he cannot take it anymore these words are to all those he loved and cared about to ask for their forgiveness but also giving them the power to continue on without him. Hence why this song is one of my favourite from them because these words are something that echo more than just simple words but stringing it all together provides an explanation on some level.

I truly hope all those gentle souls who were unable to find peace in this world can in the beyond.

 

RIP

Promises And Empty Words

“Promises And Empty Words” – Scars on 45

Is there a reason why
That everyone I’ve known never let me down gently?
Between the loss and the lies
I’m always drowned out by silence
Drowned out by silence
Well, every word that you laid
Was selfish, you lass, and it hurt me from the first call
But now I know that I’m saved
You can keep all your silence
Keep all your silence
And no more waiting in a cold bed for you
I’ll never hear another lie fall out of your mouth
Your promises and empty words surround you
Why should I be the one
To give this everything?
If I could open my eyes
I’d know that everything you do never catches me falling
And with the times that we fight
There’s a home filled with silence
Home filled with silence
And no more waiting in a cold bed for you
I’ll never hear another lie fall out of your mouth
Your promises and empty words surround you
Why should I be the one
To give this everything?
And no more waiting in a cold bed for you
I’ll never hear another lie fall out of your mouth
Your promises and empty words surround you
Why should I be the one?
Why should I be the one?

Voice Of A Friend

“Voice Of A Friend” ~ Blue October

Light the fire in this castle
Watch it burn into a glow
By the river fear of quite sincere
There’s a draw bridge life support.
There’s a plank we’ll have to crawl upon
But dare not look below
Where the water scene is crystal clean
Where the clouds are raining snow

Hush hush baby
there’s a lot of other ways to choke
We’re in the freak show now
and we’re dealing with a mind of its own
when too many worlds collide
I’d like to think it would be good if we talked
I ask you to not leave my side
I can’t, man,
This is quicksand alone

So I ask you thru the voice of a friend
Why don’t you stay with me

We’re a submarine submerging
Simply smiling at the earth
We’re sending roses to the loved ones
Who had a hand in our rebirth
But still another day I’ll cling to you
For faint directions home
Where we all will sit with open arms
To block the rocks we’ve thrown

Hush hush baby
There’s a lot of other ways to choke
We’re in the freak show now
And we’re dealing with a mind of its own
When too many worlds collide
I’d like to think it would be good if we talk
I ask you to not leave my side
I can’t, man,
This is quicksand alone

So I ask you thru the voice of a friend
“Why don’t you stay with me?”
I ask you thru the voice of a friend
“Why don’t you stay with me?
Stay with me.”

Matthew Perryman Jones

Until The Last Falling Star

“If there was a chance
That we could be lovers
I’d write you a book

Of handwritten letters
And burn them all up to the end
Just to start over again

If there was a chance
That we could be lovers
I’d learn how to dance
And to hold without touching
Oh love
Where have you been
I’ll wait for your lead to come in

So tell me the secret
Is there a way into your heart
‘Cause I want to believe it
Oh will I be wishing
Until the last falling star

If there was a chance
That we could be lovers
I’d swim seven oceans
And keep going further
I’d hold my breath until
You slipped those words
That belong on your lips

So tell me the secret
Is there a way into your heart
‘Cause I want to believe it
Oh will I be wishing
Until the last falling star

Say a line
Could be anything
Just stay with me
Tonight

So tell me the secret
Is there a way into your heart
‘Cause I want to believe it
Oh will I be wishing
Until the last falling star

So tell me a secret
Is there a way into your heart
‘Cause I want to believe it
Oh will I be wishing
I’ll keep on wishing
Until the last falling star”

Change My Needs

Scars On 45 – Change My Needs
“I never I never meant to say you were a thorn in either side,
It was a side effect from the scars on the fourty-fives.
And as the vital mistakes, it reminds me of what we have,
Despite the things you do, you know I’m a fool for you. They say a legal kiss is not as good as a stolen one,
We put our lives on show and yet we sing to a different song.
And from the bassinet to the graveside we never walk,
Of everything I’ve lost, I miss my mind the most.

I never once understood your dealings,
A group of friends who I’d give what for.
And I could name every crack on our ceiling,
A sign of thorns.
Am I a frame in your bigger picture?
A rope or rein for your stormy seas?
If I could be just a train fare richer
I’d change my needs

I’d change my needs
I’d change my needs
I’d change my needs

And in the half light a rush of violence is in the place,
And if a look could kill you’d need a license for your face.
You say that love is blind and I’m the one that restored your sight.
The girl who never knows,
The girl who never knows

I never once understood your dealings,
A group of friends who I’d give what for.
And I could name every crack on our ceiling,
A sign of thorns.
Am I a frame in your bigger picture?
A rope or rein for your stormy seas?
If I could be just a train fare richer
I’d change my needs

I’d change my needs
I’d change my needs
I’d change my needs
I’d change my needs”

You

“You” – Keaton Henson 

If you must wait,
Wait for them here in my arms as I shake
If you must weep,
Do it right here in my bed as I sleep
If you must mourn, my love
Mourn with the moon and the stars up above
If you must mourn,
Don’t do it alone If you must leave,
Leave as though fire burns under your feet
If you must speak,
Speak every word as though it were unique
If you must die, sweetheart
Die knowing your life was my life’s best part
And if you must die,
Remember your life

You are
You are
Oh, you are
You are
Oh

If you must fight,
Fight with yourself and your thoughts in the night
If you must work,
Work to leave some part of you on this earth
If you must live, darling one,

Just live
Just live

Show ’em (What You’re Made Of)

I’ve seen it all a thousand times
Falling down I’m still alive, Am I? Am I?
So hard to breathe when the water’s high
No need to swim I’ll learn to fly, so high, so high
You find the truth in a child’s eyes
When the only limit is the sky
Living proof I see myself in you

[Chorus:]
When walls starts to close in
Your heart is frozen over
Just show ‘em what you’re made of
When sun light is fading
The world will be waiting for you
Just show ‘em what you’re made of

[Kevin:]
Gloves are off, Ready to fight
Like a lion I will survive.
Will I? Will I?
You gotta stand for something
Even if you stand alone, don’t be afraid
It’s gonna be alright

[Nick:]
You find the truth in a child’s eyes
When the only limit is the sky (Woo, woo, woo)
Living proof I see myself in you, (Oh)

[Chorus:]
When walls starts to close in
Your heart is frozen over
Just show ‘em what you’re made of
When sun light is fading
The world will be waiting for you
Just show ‘em what you’re made of
(Just show ‘em what you’re made of)

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh,
(Just show ‘em what you’re made of) Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
(Just show ‘em what you’re made of)

[Howie:]
You find the truth in a child’s eyes
When the only limit is the sky
Living proof I see myself in you…

[Chorus:]
When walls starts to close in
Your heart is frozen over
Just show ‘em what you’re made of
(You can show ’em what you’re made of!)
When sun light is fading
The world will be waiting for you
(For you, for you! )
Just show ‘em what you’re made of
(You can show ‘em what you’re made of)

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh,
(Just show ‘em what you’re made of) Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Just show ‘em what you’re made of…
