Methodist Despair Playlist: Part 2 (explicit)

I’m back with more sad songs.

For context, I am forgoing food this morning, filling my stomach instead with boiling hot caramel tea – doctor’s orders.

Let that guide your reading experience.

“Make Them Hear You” from Ragtime

Go out and tell our story

Let it echo far and wide

Make them hear you

Make them hear you

How justice was our battle

And how justice was denied

Make them hear you

Make them hear you

And say to those who blame us

For the way we chose to fight,

That sometimes there are battles

That are more than black or white

 

“Wreak Havoc” by Skylar Grey

I can smell your fear

The only reason that I’m here

Is to wreak havoc

Everybody prayin’ that I’ll change, yeah

Maybe one day but tomorrow I’ll be back at it

 

“Make Up Your Mind/Catch Me I’m Falling” from Next to Normal

Make up your mind that you’re strong enough

Make up your mind

Let the truth be revealed

Admit what you’ve lost

And live with the cost

At times it does hurt to be healed

Catch me, I’m falling

 

“Everything is Alright” by Motion City Soundtrack

Give me a reason to end this discussion

To break with tradition, to fall and divide

So let’s not get carried away

With the process of healing relations

I don’t want to waste your time

 

“Existentialism on Prom Night” by Straylight Run

Sing me anything

We’re glad for what we’ve got

Done with what we’ve lost

Our whole lives laid out right in front of us

 

“Black and White” by Todrick Hall & Superfruit

And I was so sure

If I gave ’em a little time

Maybe they’d ignore it

Press fast forward

But they simply pressed rewind

 

“This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” by Taylor Swift

It was so nice being friends again

There I was giving you a second chance

But you stabbed my back while shaking my hand

And therein lies the issue

Friends don’t try to trick you

Get you on the phone and mind-twist you

And so I took an axe to a mended fence

 

“I Go Crazy” by Orla Gartland

You look like you’ve just seen a monster

Is that what I look like to you?

Won’t somebody hold me and tell me

It’ll all work out

Say that there’s nothing

To worry about now

 

“Revenge Party” from Mean Girls

It’s a revenge party

A party that ends

With somebody crushed and alone

And ugly crying

 

“Nightmare” by Set It Off

They’re coming, creeping from the corner
And all I know is that I don’t feel safe
I feel the tapping on my shoulder
I turn around in an alarming state
But am I losing my mind
I really think so
Not a creature in sight
But what you don’t know is that
My breathing gets faster
And so does my heartbeat
I wish this was over
I wish that this was a dream

“Let it Be” by Hayley Kiyoko

Giving baby steps a new meaning

Yeah, I’m making such a mess of my feelings

Won’t you just meet me in the middle

Where’s the love, won’t you give a little

      1. From what I remember, she buried her son alive out of desperation, he was rescued, and they were later reunited. And all that happens in the FIRST ACT.
