All the Pain I Built Up

Chas Hodges Been listening to this solidly for nearly 3 years. It helped get me through my teaching qualification and countless other difficulties. The level of anguish and frustration in these songs is so palpable and weighty it makes other bands who present with sincerity look as if they're just taking the piss. One of my favourite records of all time - utterly without a weak link.

Christian Arsenault This EP is skramz bliss. Flesh Born offers the perfect mixture of screamo and black metal on this album, delivering it with hellish intensity. I always come back to this release when I need a little bit of gloom in my life. Favorite track: A Pathetic Way to Say I Need You.

darker days and clouded thoughts follow times that we are at odds. i need to remind myself that my strength is based in you. every ounce of self respect i have comes from knowing i've got one thing right. everything changes when you're not here. it's darker, it's colder, and i can feel the walls closing in. it's becoming increasingly more difficult to fall asleep without you.
Hopeless 01:10
you were never there so i'm not sorry if i'm not willing to accept you into my life. that emptiness i feel rising in my throat is ever a reminder of those lost days. you might as well have not existed. i only meant something to you when you wanted something from me.
i can't fall asleep because i'm too afraid to face failure one more day, but when i inevitably wake i find comfort in the one thing that gives some sort of purpose. you are my crutch. i don't know how i made it seventeen years without you. all the pain i built up vanished when you reached for my hand. that first night you laid next to me was the warmest i had ever felt, and in that moment you were beautiful and i was beautiful and nothing else mattered.
unseen gestures fill the void where my confidence lacks. crawling through the weeds and thicket of my psyche i find nothing to help me through the day. crippling anxiety. the uncertainty of what's controlling me is too much to handle i'm too scared to crawl out of the hole i've fallen into
Dead 03:04
dreaming of death pulls me closer into it's grasp and i can't find a reason not to give in. i'm awaiting the day i give in, but you keep me at arms length. none of this will matter when we're dead in the end, but i swear that i'll love you until then.
i've always thought that you were too good for me, even back on those summer days we spent getting to know each other. i couldn't believe how lucky i was. i can't believe how lucky i am, and now i know what this meant to you. you see something in me i'm incapable of seeing, and you cross my mind about a thousand times everyday. I'm constantly reminded that my days are numbered, but lately i don't seem to care because i know i'll be spending them with you for as long as i live or as long as you'll have me. i'll never forget how i could feel your lips curve into a smile when we kissed.
