Silverchair used to be huge when I was in high school, which is probably what got my ex of 10 years interested in me... since she was obsessed with
the lead singer Daniel Johns and all the older kids at school used to hang s# on me for being the bonged out version of Daniel Johns (because I had
long blonde hair and my names Daniel, I guess)
Anyway, years later (in my early twenties) when I was in the midst of a full blown mental break down, just as I was coming to realize there was no
chance with my high school sweet heart and that life was far more brutal than I'd ever gave it credit for... I was flicking though channels late one
night and caught Daniel Johns being interviewed for a new album he had just released... he looked like absolute crap, was shaking like a leaf
(obviously from a serious anxiety disorder) and was discussing his struggle with mental illness.
It just blew my mind, to know that the famous dude people used to constantly claim I looked like right though high school, was mentally falling
apart at the same time I was... made me feel Like I wasn't alone.
Anyway, they played this song after the interview and I can't listen to it to this day without getting goose bumps (for lack of a better phrase).
btw, I know no one cares about my little story to why this song is so significant to me... but I had an overwhelming urge to tell it anyway... lol.
Don't think like that, even if some might not care, there are also those who take interest in what others have and want to share
The way you wrote it, it is like you have accepted your personal truth as your fate.
For me personally music must be felt, i must be able to relate to it.
Hence my preference for night, dark and death.
