Maybe this is my own personal Dark Night of the Soul or maybe I’m just getting less hopeful in the world, regardless I am going to change my bands name to “Surrounded by Werewolves”. Each day I experience something, hear someone, or do something that reinforces the realism of this concept; we are all monsters. I’m sick of this awareness. We are all so incredibly selfish and most of us don’t have a clue. Very few of us truly love first and follow up by acting in accordance to that love. The common 1st thoughts are, “what about me” or “how does this affect me” or something else me. It’s rarely “how can I support them” or “how can I show them compassion” etc…
David Bazan’s (Pedro the Lion) lyrics…
Oh, look you earned your wings
Are you an angel, now
Or a vulture
Constantly hovering over
Waiting for a big mistake
I’ve officially change the bands name from “Oh Beloved” to “Surrounded by Werewolves”. In addition to the hardcore feelings I’ve explained above I also have a passion for Gothic beasts (vampires, werewolves, trolls, etc..) so it’s very fitting.
We are not going to change the blog URL….
