Rambling Stream of Consciousness Time

So i've been thinking. I've been thinking a lot lately, but this time my thinking was spurred by a blog i read. I don't remember who by, or else i'd say who, but it got me thinking. Music inspires you, but at the end of the day it is you who saves yourself. Music can inspire you, it can touch you, it can teach you, but it can't save you. At the end of the day, it is you that saves yourself. The band has hinted at this a few times, too, i think. Frank is quoted to have said "We were there as a soundtrack and maybe we provided you some comfort but you’re the ones that have actually saved your own lives.” I fully believe his words, now. I used to say that MCR saved my life, but its only just now that i'm learning otherwise. All because of yet another band, ironically enough, called The Relapse Symphony. TRS doesn't even have their EP out yet - though its coming out in 2013 - but their few songs they have out now have taught me one powerful thing that as a twenty one year old college student i still had yet to learn - its not music that saves you, but yourself. You are strong enough to save yourself. I think Gerard even said something to that effect once. Anyways, i just wanted to say that. Been going through a bit of a rough patch lately, and me doing a lot of introspective thinking lately doesn't help. I would ramble more, but i need to go grab my laundry from my floor's laundry room before someone steals it...i kind of need my towels!

Keep running!
