ATONEMENT

anberlinlyrics:

I’ve seen faces I may never see again

I’ve been places I never could have dreamt

I’ve touched hands with those who touched me

Seen the marks of a skeleton keys

I found peace in a foreign atonement

I lost myself in tides of a moment

but nothing compares

Dont want to be here

Dont want to be…

STRANGER WAYS

anberlinlyrics:

locking eyes a waining glance

mistook chance of adding meaning to the words forever

broken silence defiance, misspoke turn

will i see you again if ever

cmon and leave me here on a vagabond throne

wondering the night alone

right now you’re over there in a social club state

pondering the why,…

WE ARE DESTROYER

anberlinlyrics:

We’re creatures of indecision

Easily undone

Caught inside collisions

Under a dying sun

Take our time for granted

Entitled in this life

Entertain us now

were owed everything in site

Give us what we want

But we don’t to earn

Give us what we think we need

But we don’t want to work

I’ve heard that our identity is the average of the five people we spend the most time with. It feels true and probably is. Some decisions or realizations we make when we’re young and we can’t quite trace out why, but they change our whole lives.

For me, one of these things was in 10th grade. I decided to be friends with people I looked up to, or felt made me better by being around them. This is an unusual choice for a teenage boy, because the only metric of social success at 15 is how sarcastic you can be. But I had been burned and didn’t want that anymore. I wanted to be around good people who were smart and kind and made me feel that way too.

That subtle decision changed my life. I have for the past 16 years sought out people I respect, friends that inspire me and make beautiful things, write beautiful words, make people feel beautiful.

I have found that many people don’t respect their friends. They laugh with and at them and they share experiences…but not their souls.

Choosing kindred souls as my community has made me who I am.

Almost everything I own was either given to me or made by a friend. Not so long ago we were starry-eyed kids with dreams of starting our own thing, doing our own thing. Now I’m 31 and my friends make the things I love. That is the adulthood I only dreamed about. It’s here. And I carry it with me in South America.

Wake up early. Drink coffee. Work hard. Be ambitious. Keep your priorities straight, your mind right and your head up. Do well, live well and dress really well. Do what you love, love what you do. It is time to start living.
