What It’s Like to Fight The Demons [QUOTE]

04 Jul

We know what it’s like to live with demons.

They will not prevail.

Because WE have COMMUNITY here!

Lyrics from the song,

“Until it Sleeps”, Metallica

Where do I take this pain of mine?
I run, but it stays right by my side
So tear me open, pour me out
There’s things inside that scream and shout
And the pain still hates me
So hold me until it sleeps

-“Until it Sleeps”, Metallica

    I love Metallica, they got me into music in general. Although this isn’t their best song, the lyrics make perfect sense. I’m glad you shared this. I almost forgot about this one.

      Thank you, Poetic’. Yes, I had forgotten about it, too. When it came on the radio and I listened to the words for the first time in a while, I KNEW that I had to post them – I knew so many of us could relate to them. It feels good to me when I have words that express the craziness I sometimes feel.

    Very nicely said.
    Of course, now I know I spend way too much time with my kid because the line about “tear me open and pour me out…” became the tune to Little Teapot…
    “Tip me over and pour me out.”

    I need a life with other grown ups, I think.

      Wow! hahahaha. Nice point, my friend! I like your style 😀

      Yes, I think these lines do well to describe my/our conditions as a community. Watched the video repeatedly last night. Pretty deep. X

        I wish wordpress had the old style chatrooms (I am that retro) for us to just meet up in and talk things out. Or goof off, mood permitting. Mainly I miss chatrooms because I despise phones, texting, and video chat is a leper in my world. I just miss typing, calmly, with others who know what it’s like to be on the sucky side of mental health issues.
        Ooooh…My new song…”I’m a little ewok…ugly and cute…” Damn that teapot song.
