Its hard for people without depression to understand when some days that just dropping a cup of water will bring you to tears because they think oh this is just one little thing but you see it as oh my god I can’t even get water without fucking up and now I’ve made a huge mess I shouldn’t even try
“I wrote Chasing Ghosts as a narrative based wholly on someone that has committed suicide and has passed onto the other side. It’s a story that I hope people will see for what it is; a example in song of why you should turn to someone close and talk instead of taking that last fatal step towards death prematurely. I just want to reiterate to people that once you’re gone, that’s it. There’s not ghosts. There’s no heaven, no hell, just finality and the wreckage left behind in the wake of their decision.” - Joel Birch, The Amity Affliction.
