Pick 1: A Song or Fictional Character That Best Defines Me (and of course WHY!)

American Trilogy by The Delgados https://youtu.be/Fhdewbz7qiY
  1. Lyrics:
  2. I became accustomed to a certain kind of social servitude and no one, I mean no one, could except what I had became. Selfish, bitter, weak - enough to make you sick. And lately, I've been feeling there are bits of life I'm stealing. Get me home.
  3. At times it seems I will not help, but it's just that I must save myself from fear that blankets me like mist on an optimist who insists its the simple things that crush and I'm crying far too much. So much so I'm thinking my control on life is shrinking.
  4. There is a light on in my head and I'm thinking what I said. All the freedom in my brain, I'm alright now, I'm just thinking what to say.
  5. Sorry doesn't seem to wash when there's truth around that I have quashed and no one, I mean no one, can depress me more than I can. So does that make me weak or should that make me sick? But lately I've been feeling that I'm gonna give up breathing.
  6. There's a light on in my head and I'm thinking what I said. All the fever in my brain, I'm alright now. I can even take the pain.
  7. There's a light on in my head and I'm thinking what I said. All the fever in my brain, I'm alright now. I can even take the pain.
  8. Why:
  9. This is the hard part, explaining how this song defines me (even harder when coupled with NyQuil). When I first heard the song I adopted it as my theme song. Every lyric encapsulated how I felt and how I still feel from time to time.
  10. It starts in such a desolate and self-hating place but ends with a calming strength. I truly believe that "I'm alright now. I can even take pain".
  11. It is that small signal of hope that I can identify with. It's attainable and just on the other side of whatever feeling I'm feeling.
