Nobody said this would be easy

But that’s the biggest understatement of the century

And even after Two Years On

None of these fears are gone at all, if anything, they’re multiplying


Can’t get rid of this shake, lying awake every night

I’m in a constant fight between my head and my heart

And I know this music is my gift

But the compulsion for making it is tearing me apart


And it’s quickly getting dark


And before I knew it

Reality came crushing down like a meteor shower

Seems I’m facing my extinction

No use to run and hide

No choice left but to fight

So grab a bat and start swinging for your life


All the lights are fading out

And I’m banging on walls in the dark hoping to find a door

Anxiety’s closing in, the sky is falling again

And I’m screaming PLEASE NO MORE


I’m sick of wearing these fake smiles

Just want to sing against bathroom tiles trying to conjure up the next sound

But self-esteem is sinking down

Gotta to keep my head above water again before I surely drown


And I’m sure to drown


Be the change, beat the flames, break the chain it’s overrated

Wasn't expecting to see this here too! :D So awesome you managed to bridge the divide with regard to animated content here too. Hope it gets a ton of views, and like I said on YT already it's a pretty powerful piece. When the run slows down and the text flares heavy in the background... pretty METAL. Heavy moments. A showcase of conviction as the world keeps falling down in the backdrop. Again great work on this, and great to see it here too! Much appreciated Vlad!

Jabun responds:

Cheers again Cyber :D I wasn't originally going to upload here, but the animator convinced me to and I thought it can't hurt XD He really did a GREAT job on the visuals, so I hope lots of people get to see it if not just for that. Powerful images :) Thanks again!

I don't like the song but the video is great. You definitely earned your stars, great work m8

Jabun responds:

Awww but the song was the bit I did! No worries though, I know it's not for everyone :) Happy you enjoyed the visuals :D
