about

something better is a powerful and cathartic emotional declaration, from a survivor of child abuse, expressing the complexities of emotion, and a vow to not let it pull them down, a vow and a demand, a positive outcry for something better.

lyrics

Something Better

Sometimes in this world it just seems
Just to make it through the day
Can take everything inside of me
Just to find a simple way
And to crave something more
To pursue a dream
Takes some help from those around us
It's never ever done alone

Oh no no, you can't keep me
From finding something better
I can't let your frustration
Pull me down into the gutter

Funny how it took so long, yeh
To recognize the damage done
Pictures of you from better days
Don't match my memories
I always held you in the highest regard
That a child could
In my eyes you just did no wrong
I wonder why it took so long

Oh no no, you can't keep me
From finding something better
I can't let your frustration
Pull me down into the gutter

When you hit me you caused more than
The trembling of my pain
Each time you struck me
You gave me one more way to fail
And did you know that your presence
Accompanied my fear
I am angry and I am hateful
So much I break to tears

Sometimes in this life it just seems
Just to make it through the day
Can take everything inside of me
Just to find a simple way
