Shadow of the Sun

An Open Thank You

I could write a novel here. A feature article. Perhaps a poem that would one day rise to the status of literature. But that would be completely be against the point of what I'm trying to do.

This is an open thank you to everyone on these boards. I'm going to go into specifics, but if you aren't mentioned, don't feel bad. Feel happy. You've still done a lot.

Now, onto specifics.

Vael: I'd like to thank you for giving me someone to love, someone to trust when I feel like all others against me. Someone who I know will care and love me, no matter what will happen. This is a specific thank you, and I can't wait to see you. *kisses*

Ms Elaneous: You've made mistakes. I know it. We all have. But if it wasn't for one single mistake from you, I would never have made the realization that I came to mere minutes ago; that no matter what happens life is worth living. *hug* Thanks, friend, although you're an adopted sister.

NecroPaladin: You made mistakes, too. As I said to E, everyone does. But you...you were one of the two who propelled me into this realization that life is worth living. Although you didn't intend it like that, you didn't intend it to hurt, so I'll call it tough love and forget any negative connotations you could have given it.

Sophistemon: I'd like to thank you for pointing out my stupidity, showing me that humanity isn't all bad, for indulging my nonsensical arguments, for listening to me rant. You deserve the following: *applauds*

wxdruid: You were always there for me, always ready to listen, someone who was always friendly. You deserve everything good that life gives you, and don't think otherwise.

Obsidian Blade: Along with Sophistemon, you're the one who always told me when I was being morbid, or just plain stupid. I fear not the Devil, nor Hell, because I could have you watching me, and every stupid thing I do, and methinks that you'd do a better job of punishing me for it than he could.

Wukei: Another who would always listen. Always. Even when I accidentally managed to offend her religion, she never turned from me, never got angry, was always there, ready to give a *hug* and a kind word.

Everyone else: Even if I've never interacted with you, you've still done a lot of good for me. You provided me with entertainment with your funny posts, helped gather this band of rogues and knaves who've made me realize life was worth living. Everyone go out, buy yourself a drink, a game, ANYTHING, because you deserve it. You stopped me killing myself.

I'm going to end this with the songs that had the effect of making me realize all this. I hope you enjoy them.

Streetlight Manifesto
"A Better Place, A Better Time"

So she wakes up
in time to break down
She left a note up on the dresser
and she's right on time
You don't know anything
right or wrong
I said I know
and she said so
I want to panic
but I've had it
so I go
you don't owe anything to anyone

But don't take your life
because it's all that you've got
you'd be better off just up and leaving
if you don't think they will stop

And when you wake up
everything is going to be fine
I guarantee that you wake up in a better place
in a better time
so you're tired of living
and you feel like you might give in
well don't
it's not your time

looking through the paper today
looking for a specific page
don't want to find her full name followed by dates
because when I left her alone
she made a sound, like a moan
"you're known by everyone for everything you've done"
fuck buying flowers for graves
I'd rather buy you a one way non-stop
to anywhere
find anyone
do anything
forget and start again, love
she said she won't go
and that's that
it hurts too much to stand by
you've got to stop and draw a line
and everyone here has to choose a side tonight
the moment of truth is haunting you
don't forget your family
regardless of what you choose to do
you can't decide
and they're all screaming "why won't you?"
I'll start the engine but I can't take this ride for you
I'll draw your bath and I'll load your gun
but I hope so bad that you'll bathe and hunt

Annie's tired of forgetting about today and always planning for tomorrow (tomorrow)
Annie says "The saddest day I came across was when I learned that life goes on without me" (without me)
Annie says "If everyone has someone else, then I ain't got nobody's love to save me" (save me)
Annie says "I think I'll pass away tonight, because it seems I'll never get it right if it's just me" (just me)
Annie says!

And when you wake up
everything is going to be fine
I guarantee that you wake up in a better place
and in a better time
so you're tired of living
and you feel like you might give in
well don't
it's not your time

Annie says she wouldn't mind if they never find a cure for all her problems (her problems)
Annie says as long as she has someone near to make it clear she does not need to solve them (solve them)
Annie says "oh, this loneliness is killing me it's filling me with anger and resentment (resentment)"
Annie says "I'm turning into someone that I never thought I'd have to be again"

And when you wake up
everything is going to be fine
I guarantee that you wake up in a better place
and in a better time
so you're tired of living
and you feel like you might give in
well don't
it's not your time

and even if it was
I wouldn't let you go
you could run run run run but I will follow close
someday you will say "that's it, that's all"
but I'll be waiting there with open arms to break your fall
I know that you think that you're on your own
but just know that I'm here
and I'll lead you home
if you let me
she said "forget me"
but I can't.

Streetlight Manifesto
"We Will Fall Together"

I once knew a guy, obsessed with the afterlife
Oh what a terrible day that was, he realized he'd wasted all his time
Time was ticking by, and he'd been left behind
And as the clock tick-tocked his heart did stop and everything he had was fucked

And we know not what we do (Can you hear them call?)
Will we ever make it through?
As they watch us fall from the sky to the ground to the see
Woe is me, woe is me, no one will save you now
We can only look away (away!)
We'll not be victims there'll be no victims of to speak
And only then will we be free
And up will rise the meek

And when we fall we will fall together
No one will catch us so we'll catch ourselves
And where we roam we will roam forever
No one will understand what we meant

The beaten and the bruised, forsaken, the abused
Oh what a glorious day we'll have rising up and claiming all our dues
The day will come as sure as the ever-setting sun
All of those that self-imposed will find themselves so indisposed

And we know not what we do (Can you hear their call?)
Will we ever make it through?
As they watch us fall from the sky to the ground to the sea
Woe is me, woe is me, no one will save you now
We can only look away (away!)
We will not be victims there'll be no victims of to speak
And only then will we be free
And up will rise the meek

And when we fall we will fall together
No one will catch us so we'll catch ourselves
And where we roam we will roam forever
No one will understand what we meant

Now, with the line drawn in the wet sand
You need to tell us where to stand
Sitting waiting watching rotting everything they warned us of is true
Now tell me what we're all supposed to do

They're coming after all of us with everything they've got
With the fury of a soldier who will answer to his God
So how will we fight? All we have is logic and love on our side

And when we fall we will fall together
No one will catch us so we'll catch ourselves
And where we roam we will roam forever
No one will understand what we meant

Sorry for the obscenity in the songs, but sometimes, swearwords are needed to convey strength of emotion.

And now, I'm going to summarize this post, because I'm weird like that:

*hugs all* I love you all. You're my family.
Nevrmore

Wow, that's a lot of words.

You picked those songs? *Rolls eyes* No taste Razz

Thanks regardless, I still did something wrong. I'm just happy to see you okay.

I do. I'm the only one who's allowed to in fact.

*cough*Clapton beats Dylan*cough*
Look deep inside yourself Dave. You know it to be true.
