A Synonym for Acquiesce



This is Bayside. I love them. Their songs have a good depressing feel to them. Back in the day when I was in a depressed state, their lyrics seemed to say everything I was feeling, which I know isn't a rarity among beautiful emo bands. My favorite Bayside song is called "A Synonym for Acquiesce" ..
Empty fields move me so much more then rooms filled up with friends.
The way the trees look dead
reminds me that there's more to life then living.
Maybe giving up's not bad, but part of letting go of you.

If I surrender to this feeling maybe all the aches and pains will go and I can close my eyes,
never again to have them open till I bleed out all I've been.
I don't want to be alone no more, no more

Take this razor, sign your name across my wrists
so everyone will know who left me like this

Empty fields move me so much more then rooms filled up with friends.
The way the trees look dead
reminds that there's more to life then living.
Maybe giving up's not bad, but part of letting go of you.

So take this razor, sign your name across my wrists
so everyone will know who left me like this.
Sew me up, my scars run deep
A reminder not to forget the times that we've had.

I'll never waste another second. I have wasted so much time
and I have wasted, wasted so much time
so much time

Take this razor, sign your name across my wrists
so everyone will know who left me like this.
Sew me up, my scars run deep
A reminder not to forget the times that we've had

Depressing right? So beautiful. You'll be glad to know that I don't feel this way anymore. In fact, I tend to feel like a poser when I listen to my emo music, because I no longer relate to any of the songs. But they're so good. You should check them out.
