People: Ew. Your music is so emo and depressing. All they do is scream and sing about cutting themselves. How can you even like that sort of garbage?
Mom&Dad: I really hope you can find a different style to look up to. I really think the phase you're in now is a bad influence. You shouldn't listen to this type of music because it has a very negative meaning to it that revolves around Satan and demons, and if you spend too much time around negative influences, you may become a negative person.
Asking Alexandria: It was you that told me I could do this. You put the music in my heart, and how you sang with the band in Memphis. It's hard just to be strong. Not knowing if I've done you proud. I like to imagine you smile when you hear my songs. Even though I'm on my own, I know I'm not alone. Because I know there's someone, somewhere. Praying that I make it home.
Sleeping With Sirens: One day you'll open your eyes, take a look inside. I just saved your life. Just take a look inside. I hope you know what it's like for you to be alright. I am for you. Don't give up, just believe I will be right there, when your hopes and dreams are on the line. I can save you if you ask me to. There's hope for you tonight.
Pierce The Veil: They'll never take us alive. Can you chase away the darkness? To live in love and die. And I don't care if you're sick, I don't care if you're contagious. I would kiss you even if you were dead. Would someone make me go blind for the rest of my life? 'Cause I'd do anything to hold your hand.
Black Veil Brides: We're soldiers, in season, We can bring change before we die. The tails of their beatings, To feel what lies beneath our eyes. Never give in, Never back down, Never give in, Never back down, When your life feels lost, Fight against all odds!
Escape The Fate: You said this could only get better, There's no rush 'cause we have each other. You said this would last forever, But now I doubt if I was your only lover. Are we just lost in time? I wonder if your loves the same. 'Cause I'm not over you. Baby, don't talk to me, I'm trying to let go. Not loving you is harder than you know. 'Cause girl you're driving me so crazy. How can I miss you if you never would stay? If you need time I guess I'll go away. Inside me now there's only heartache and pain. So where's the fire, you've begun the rain.
All Time Low: My ship went down, in a sea of sound. When I woke up alone I had everything; A handful of moments, I wished I could change, And a tongue like a nightmare, that cut like a blade. In a city of fools, I was careful and cool, But they tore me apart, like a hurricane. A handful of moments, I wished I could change, But I was carried away. Give me therapy, I'm a walking travesty, But I'm smiling at everything. Therapy, you were never a friend to me, And you can keep all your misery.
