What’s your personal anthem or theme song?

Okay… I actually researched [translation: googled] the difference between an anthem and a theme song.

an·them  /ˈanTHəm/
1. a rousing or uplifting song identified with a particular group, body, or cause.

Um… rousing or uplifting? I don’t think I have a personal anthem.

theme song  /THēm sôNG/
1. a song or melody strongly associated with someone or something

This I can do.

This is my theme song…

I don’t like my mind right now
Stacking up problems that are so unnecessary
Wish that I could slow things down
I wanna let go but there’s comfort in the panic
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything’s about me
Yeah, I drive myself crazy
‘Cause I can’t escape the gravity

I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?

You say that I’m paranoid
But I’m pretty sure the world is out to get me
It’s not like I make the choice
To let my mind stay so fucking messy
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning ’round me just the same

And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything’s about me

Why is everything so heavy?

[Heavy by Linkin Park (feat. Kiiara)]

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
