Anyone who actually knows me knows just how deep my love is, has, and always will be for this band… but truth be told, I’ve been known to skip this song on multiple occasions. Whether it was because of how big it was, how many times it was played over and over on the radio or how that was the only song a bunch of bandwagon fans knew and asked for at one point, I don’t know. It’s silly how we all do that at some point with the bands we love the most. As of lately, I’ve gotten back to listening to it quite frequently and fell in love with it all over again. It’s a wonderful feeling especially when you’re looking at it with a fresh perspective. Now when I listen to it, I smile even bigger than the first because it paints such a pretty picture. A picture of a time where my anxiety and panic are practically nonexistent. A time of peace and clarity where someone could see me for who I really am and in aspects always have been. A time I could share such a happy and beautiful side of life with the people I love instead of the frazzled mess they see on a day to day basis. If only I could bottle my emotions during it and share it with each and every person I meet. What a wonderful gift that would be. The feeling that all is not completely lost to this disorder is one that doesn’t come around as often as I’d like and I am extremely thankful whenever it does. ♥
You can give me guns and politics and I’ll just make a mess of it, you know. Give me art and sustenance and the wiser, wider part of me will show..
