What my whole message of Dark-Pop really comes down to is "denial." Mental health is dependent on so many factors, but a substantial one of them is facing the truth. Admitting the facts. Knowing who should be held accountable and - honestly? Asking ourselves if we want to be where we are anymore.
We put ourselves through endless cycles, preaching but still stuck in the same patterns that control our growth.
This song was about admitting the truth about a very uncomfortable situation that occurred between myself and a friend of mine - a physical altercation to be honest, and in order to maintain normalcy and to keep myself from reacting to the truth of the event - it was as if nothing happened. I made the excuses, I shrugged my shoulders, I pretended we were fine - but we weren't of course.
Lying and avoidance has never changed our problems. Though they may bury them, the Earth always renews and pulls old soil back up. I had to stop making myself the excuse. It is not our fault when we are simply not made or meant for some people. And that sucks.
We may try to force it to be otherwise, but forced is fake. It's not real. Sometimes we think that if we "fake it" things will be better that way, but it's just a lie that controls your life when we should be controlling it.
