Been obsessed with Muse ever since I started discovering more of their stuff around 2012 and it pisses me off how a song like this hasn't exploded the way a lot of modern garbage does.

I feel like that with Dead Sara. If music were all about talent and merit, they'd have been one of the biggest rock bands of the last decade, easily. But because they're a female-led rock act that doesn't try and push sex appeal (even though Siouxsie Medley is a goddamn smokeshow and often goes onstage barely-dressed, it's more about how she gets all hot and sweaty due to her hyper-aggressive guitar playing and merely wants to be comfortable, more than it does with trying to "Be Sexy"), they don't get a push and can't keep a record label interested.

It's a shame. Everything "music" that's been pushed on the masses for the last 10+ years is garbage, but there's a lot of good acts out there who fly under the radar simply because they refuse to play the game.

Everywhere you looked there was confusion, violence, drama and drugs...
So many righteous revolutionaries spouting Utopian love...
Everyone shrouded in purple haze...
Then one day they woke up from their dream state...
They found themselves no more at peace than before...
Older, meek, and conformed...

Empty Causes...
A bluster for the soul, a fix for their mind...
Empty Causes...
Cling to everything you find...

Well, the shots rang out like popcorn
And the Chief was hit and rushed out of sight...
The Mohawk-chain, leather brigade rejoiced maliciously on that night...
Someone cried out "F*ck the government!"
His mates couldn't define what he meant...
So no one gave him the time of day,
And the scene died away...

Empty Causes...
A war for the body, an army in the mind...
Empty Causes...
Losing steam as time goes by...

Could it be that everybody selfishly desires their own personal retinue?
And that causes are just manifestations
Of too much time, and far too little to do...?

Empty Causes...
Direction for the soul, conviction for the mind...
Empty Causes...
Cling to everything you find...

Empty Causes...
You've got Yours and I've got Mine...

I close both locks below the window...
I close both blinds and turn away...
Sometimes solutions aren't so simple...
Sometimes goodbye's the only way...

And the sun will set for you...
The sun will set for you...
And the shadow of the day,
Will embrace the world in gray...
And the sun will set for you...

In cards and flowers on your window...
Your friends all plead for you to stay...
Sometimes beginnings aren't so simple...
Sometimes goodbye's the only way...

And the sun will set for you...
The sun will set for you...
And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in gray...
And the sun will set for you...
And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in gray...
And the sun will set for you...
And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in gray...

And the sun will set for you...

Minutes To Midnight was a new direction for LP, but it was easy to get into. It's a solid album. Unlike something like The Hunting Party which.... I don't know. Not a bad album, but it's like nobody cared.

And on that note, now I'm also listening to MTM.

Not a huge fan of the band (or their main genre), personally, but there's a few songs I like a lot. I've just always felt a strong kinship with "broken" people, especially ones who've killed themselves. And I find a lot of beauty in their art. It speaks greatly to what they were feeling, and most often people don't notice or care until it's too late.

Like people generally stigmatize suicide and say that those people are "weak" and "cowardly" or whatever, but I really don't see it that way at all, not even a little bit. I think it takes far more courage to march headlong into the unknown at your own volition than it does to merely "exist" in a life that no longer holds any meaning for you. I think those words are just things selfish people say to try and deflect from the fact that they didn't do more to make the person's life more tolerable. They don't want to feel guilty, so they deflect. I understand it, but they're wrong. Committing suicide is the exact opposite of "cowardly". There's no promise of an afterlife, or a Heaven or a Hell or a Limbo, or anything. But for a person to say, "I don't know, but I also don't care," and take the power into themselves ANYway... well, that's courage, not cowardice. I very often feel like they're the true brave ones, and the ones they leave behind are the cowards. Most of those people could have done more to prevent the incident, after all, but they didn't. It doesn't take "courage" to ignore or diminish another person's pain, or to stay alive just because you're scared of dying. That's fear, not power. Courage is deciding that only you are the captain of your own destiny, even if that "destiny" is oblivion.

I find this one pretty poignant.


I find it very interesting that it's one of the last ones they did before Chester killed himself, and one of the first to come out after.

I know there's all those conspiracy theories and everything about what "really" happened to him but I kind of don't buy that. Everything I've ever read suggests that he simply had a really rough go of things and simply didn't want to be here anymore. I'm not glad that it happens, but I will never, ever say that anyone who killed themselves was "wrong" to do so. That's ultimately their decision. Frankly, if they're unhappy, then I find it arrogant and narcissistic to try and argue with their decision. Nobody ever really knows what a person is feeling. "I wish they were still here" is well-meaning, and I understand it, but it's ultimately selfish.

Anyway, yeah, I actually started listening to their music a little bit more after the fact. I feel bad for his family, but... I'm sure he had a good enough reason.

I got two letters from you...
Last words of the runaway...
Your love was written so true...
And now I can't speak your name...
I faced destruction and you...
Just killed me and walked away...
I gave my heart to the cruel...
Now it will not beat again....

I hope you do...
I Hope You Suffer...
I hope you do...
I Hope You Suffer...
I hope you do...
I Hope You Suffer...
I hope you do...
Just like I suffered...

No one will ever know you...
Deny the last one who cares...
Intoxicate with the new...
Pretend I'm no longer here...
I opened my heart to you...
You lied just to reach inside...

Now with the faith you removed...
Our hope for forgiveness dies...

I hope you do...
I Hope You Suffer...
I hope you do...
I Hope You Suffer...
I hope you do...
I Hope You Suffer...
I hope you do...
Just like I suffered...

I've seen my darkest days...
You gave each one to me...
I've seen my darkest days...
You gave each one to me...
You have been lost for days...
May you find my darkness...

I hope you do...
I Hope You Suffer...
I hope you do...
I Hope You Suffer...
I hope you do...
I Hope You Suffer...
I hope you do...
Just like I... I f*cking suffered...

Just like you...
You made me suffer...
I hope you... I hope you do...
