Music

A lot of people will post the lyrics of songs as their facebook statuses, as I’m sure you’ve noticed. I think that especially when the songs have rather self-decidedly depressing lyrics, they ought to think about what they are actually posting. They then proceed to be annoyed when people ask them what’s wrong with them, insisting that it’s just a song, just the lyrics.

I think they should take a good, hard look at themselves and figure out what draws them to these depressing songs. The sort of music you listen to, I believe, can tell you a good deal about yourself that you never knew, or rather, never wanted to know. Sometimes it’s painful to look at yourself, but it’s always good to know what other people see.

Be honest: is that “it’s just the lyrics of a good song” lark actually what you want people to see, or are those depressive posts a sub-conscious cry for help?
