Hot Topic just doesn't quite do it anymore. Vampire Freaks is a little too edgy.. I want something in between

Girl In Black

even I wondered why I always dress in black


why I never wear bright colors on my back


and why my appearance indeed has a somber tone


Cash shed some light on the things I have on


 


we wear it for the poor and beaten down


living in the hopeless hungry side of town


we wear it for the prisoner 


who has long paid for his crime


but is there because he's a victim of the time


 


We wear the black for those who've never read


or listened to the words that Jesus said


about the road to happiness through faith and charity


why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me


 


Well, we're doing mighty fine I do suppose


in our streak of lightning cars and fancy clothes


but just so we're reminded of those who are held back


up front, there oughta be someone in black


 


we wear it for the sick and lonely old


for the reckless ones whose bad trip left them cold


we wear the black in mourning for the lives that could have been


each week we lose a hundred fine, young men


 


we wear it for the thousands who have died


believing that the Lord was on their side


we wear it for another hundred thousand who have died


believing that we all were on their side


 


well there's things that never will be right, we know


and things need changing everywhere we go


but til we start to make a move to make a few things right


you'll never see us all clad up in white


 


well, we'd love to wear a rainbow every day


and tell the world that everything's ok


but we'll try to carry off a little darkness on our backs


till things are brighter, we're the ones in black.


 


my parody of Man in Black by Johnny Cash....


 


 


I put that song into my own words, cuz I imagine myself writing and singing that song straight along with Johnny... 


 


people call kids like me "emo" or "goth"


because we like to express ourselves by the way we dress


not even the label "Fallen Angel" --(Black Veil Brides), will cut it for me. I'm just a kid in mourning, waiting for that day when Someone comes and makes all things new.


I'm misunderstood by all, even myself.


every day I wake in search of seeing my life in a different light.


every day I forget who I am and why I'm here at some point... we are all fallen. this world isn't the way it was intended to be for us. this is where I'd like to quote the movie Hot Rod: "Life is pain, we gotta scrape the joy out of it every chance we get."


 


I'm guilty of being in the wrong too. life used to be all about me, my pain, my fears, my regrets, my hatred... 


my clothes were dark and dreary in pity of myself


my arm was sore and bleeding nearly every second of every day because of my transgressions... because of the beast I allowed to boil up inside and steal my thoughts and heart.


I was fake. 


I was a poseur.


 


it's all changed now.


and I can smile because I know I'm safe, life will go on, and my future is full of hope.


I still wear the black because of all the reasons Johnny Cash did. 


annnnd... I like the style :)


so that part of me hasn't changed.
