Victim

The song below is written by avenged sevenfold. It deals with the death of their drummer Jimmy Sullivan. It is reported that he died from and overdose of prescription drugs and alcohol. I’m sharing it purely because it’s a very emotional song that touches my heart.

House full of roses
A letter on the stairs
A tape full of messages
For anyone who cares
Collage of broken words
and stories full of tears
Remembering your life
‘Cause we wish that you were hereNothing is harder
Than to wake up all alone
Realize it’s not okay
It’s the end of all you know
Time keeps passing by
But it seems I’m frozen still
Scars are left behind
But some too deep to feelAnd some say this can’t be real
And I’ve lost my power to feel tonight
We’re all just victims of a crime
When all’s gone and can’t be regained
We can’t seem to shelter the pain inside
We’re all just victims of a crimeSome days you’ll find me
In a place I like to go
Ask questions to myself
‘Bout the things I’ll never know
What’s left to find
‘Cause I need a little more
I need a little time
Can we even up the score?And some say this can’t be real
And I’ve lost my power to feel tonight
We’re all just victims of a crime
When all’s gone and can’t be regained
We can’t seem to shelter the pain inside
We’re all just victims of a crimeAnd nothing lasts forever
For all good days it’s true
I’d rather tred it all
For somehow saving you
It must have been the season
That’ve threw us out of line
Once I stood so tall
Now I’m searching for a signSo don’t need your salvation
With promises and kind
And all those speculations
Save it for another time
‘Cause we all need a reason
A reason just to stay
Some just can’t be bothered
To stick around another dayAnd some say this can’t be real
And I’ve lost my power to feel tonight
We’ve all been victims of a crime
When all is gone and can’t be regained
We can’t seem to shelter the pain inside (oh)
We’ve all been victims of a crime
Victims of a crime
Living with this crimeI’m missing you
I’m missing you
I’m missing you
I’m missing you

Hi, I’m Martin. 47 years old, living in Suffolk. I have three amazing grown up children. I have the best family and friends in the world. I am a football fan, love going to the gym and I am a motorcycle pilot. I’ve had mental health problems all of my life. This site is about my past, present and future. I’m hoping to make it easier for people to be able to speak freely about mental health. It can affect anyone at anytime.
