Now. I just want to get one thing straight. Are you going to do what it takes to make a fucking change? Let's cut the bullshit. I want to focus on what really counts. If we could just stop talking shit for five minutes, we can find some fucking common ground.
I'm sick of all the he-said-she-said bullshit, fucking tearing down our scene. Sometimes I feel like this is all we live for. This shit means everything to me. I want to break these fucking boundaries. Let's put out differences aside. For just one night in just one room, let's bring it fucking back to life.
This is the place where we all go when there's no place left to turn. This is the place where we all go when we just can't be alone. This is the place I've come for half my life, this is my home away from home. I wouldn't trade this shit for anything. All I want is just to see some fucking change.
There's no reason why you and I can't be friends. It's a cold world and I want you to let me in. I want to re-connect the values that we've lost. I promise you it's not out of reach.
Searching for the days we've lost, the days I've spent wishing that I was never born, and that someone understood me. Then I found this place, this group of kids with X'd up fists telling me that everything will be alright. Everything will be alright. I'm reaching out, come take my hand, let's fucking start right now. I want to start right now.
