Olde English 800 (3:43)

Cover of Youngbloods

From Youngbloods

I’m actually not the biggest fan of this song lyrically. I guess I was trying to stress the violence of being really down, and trying to emote that using hell for imagery (whether you’re religious or not) is the clearest example of struggle; I know there’s not a hell, or a heaven, but when you’re stuck in your head it feels like you’re going through hell no matter who you are. I don’t think this is something that is intrinsic only to those with depression at all; I think it’s an all encompassing feeling, the feeling of being stuck in a living hell. It differs in experience based on the individual, but I think everyone goes through it. It can be post-relationship, mid-relationship, school induced, home life, friends impacting you with their actions, death – it can range, but I know just about everyone goes through it. I think it’s for that reason I tried to use such vivid imagery, and hopefully that helps people get through something, that’s really all I ever want from these songs…
