Warning: I’m going to seem slightly warped with this selection. More warped than this entire project has been. Today we go dark.
When I first saw this video I was all “holy shit this is the best video for a song I have ever seen.” It’s both disturbing and funny. I immediately went to Tower Records and bought Wither Blister Burn & Peel and it has always been the first song I go to when I need to vent and wallow in my angst and feel bad about myself. It really struck a nerve when I first heard it back in 1996.
Plus, I have a soft spot for stalker songs.
It also reminds me of a time when Stabbing Westward was a good band.
And, I used to have their song, Save Yourself, as my ringtone. “I am not your savior, I am just as fucked as you.” It was so much fun when my phone rang in public.
I only see myself reflected in your eyes
so all that I believe I am essentially are lies
and everything I’ve hoped to be or ever thought I was
died with your belief in me so who the hell am I?
I’m wandering ’round confused wondering why i try
the more that you deny my pain the more it intensifies…
I pray for someone to ache for me the way I ache for you…
if you ignore that I’m alive I’ve nothing to cling to
I stare into this mirror so tired of this life
if only you would speak to me or cared if i’m alive
once i swore i would die for you but i never meant like this
I don’t know if I’m real without you what is left of me without you?
I don’t know what’s real without you
HOW CAN I EXIST WITHOUT YOU?
