-“As time passes by, I feel everything changing but me. I will not feel the sting of defeat. I’ve watched days become months, become years. and I’ve lost all faith in progression. I will never allow myself to exchange all my morals for acceptance. If this is truly where I belong, I’ll fucking be here until the end of time. I’ve watched everyone around me jump ship, and I hope they’re left to sink. The current will carry us. I am proud of all that I’ve become, and I’m well aware that I have steered myself in the right direction. And life is your’s to destroy, I just can’t admire the path you’ve chosen. I would rather isolate myself than be a walking definition of travesty. I watched you do away with everything. I would love nothing more than to watch this world swallow you whole. You were the catalyst for your downfall. But where the rest have failed, we are bound to succeed. And mark my fucking words, as long as we are breathing, we will overcome. The integrity that we emanate day-to-day is unparalleled, and our efforts will not go unnoticed. We will be remembered.”-
This band is the bond that’s holding Me and my love for Melodic Hardcore together. Just when I thought I have abandoned it completely, they have come around and stolen me again. There music is truly inspiring and something I can connect with. Absolutely amazing. Its something about this genre that just always leaves me with this feeling when listening. The lyrics above are from there song Jumping Ship, my personal favorite from this album. I bolded lyrics that stood out personally. This is true music and songwriting. Not the repetitive shit you hear on radio. “You a stupid ho, you a stupid ho, you a stupid ho” Seriously? Give me a fucking break. Listen to a real artist. Listen to Counterparts.
