8 hours of sleep

05 Apr 2008

This is 8 Hours of Sleep by Against Me! on the album Reinventing Axl Rose.

Against Me! is a band that inspired my love for punk rock again. Specifically with this album a few years ago. There is so much honesty in it.

This song, though depressing, helps put things in perspective. I am very lucky for what I have, for the fact that I have a bed to sleep in, for the fact that I have friends and love in my life, for the fact that I am still breathing and do not have to fear death so pervasively. Still all these thoughts make me wonder why I don’t have the comfort of certain love, that there is a splitting of such special, simple love. It makes me wonder why I have to experience loss and dishonesty at all. I wonder why my heart breaks.
