When I was about six months sober, I started seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. Things were getting better, I was gaining some weight, and I was feeling good.
I discovered the band 30 Seconds to Mars. (P.S. - Jared Leto is a total weirdo but he’s a genius.)
I listened to the album and found this song called “attack.”
The lyrics in the first verse were exactly what I needed at the time.
I won't suffer, be broken, get tired, or wasted
Surrender to nothing, or give up what I
Started and stopped it, from end to beginning
A new day is coming, and I am finally free
I used to listen to this song over and over again.
On Friday, I was driving to pick up food and this song came on my Spotify. I flooded me with memories. I blasted it driving through The Highlands, windows down, and forcing everyone to listen to the song with me. Yeah, that guy.
Check out the music video. This was 12 years ago, back when music videos were good. I freakin love it.
