Lyrics of On My Own

See all those people on the ground,
Wasting time...
I try to hold it all inside,
Just for tonight,
On top of the world,
I'm sitting here wishing,
The things I've become,
But something is missing,
Maybe I...
What do I know.

And now it seems that I have found,
Nothing at all,
I wanna hear your voice out loud,
Slow it down, slow it down,
Without it all,
I'm choking on nothing,
It's clear in my head,
that I'm screaming for something,
Knowing nothing is better than knowing at all.

On my own (4x)
(On my own, YAH!!)(2x)

Without it all,
I'm choking on nothing,
It's clear in my head,
that I'm screaming for something,
Knowing nothing is better than knowing it all.

On my own (4x)

All Writings are OOC Knowledge: What is Love? *An email from F1R3W@LL to Pash:* so. i think i have figured out a thing. this is the thing. i am an asexual panromantic. uh cisgender inasmuch as i think about gender which is not really at all, and the tits just make it easier for everyone to go with "she" so that's what we're doing. there is another thing. i am absolutely in a romantic relationship with Simon in my own head but i do not know what sort of relationship he is in with me in his head. we do a lot of HO HO HO AND WE ARE BROS AND ETCETERA so possibly he does not consider our relationship romatic and would get weirded out if i was like "basically i have been totally in love with you for years, guy who i do not bang but with whom i fall asleep nightly." but not bringing it up is for cowardly assholes so i'm going to bring it up now. uh. so consider this a heads up that things might get weird. -F13 *The response email from Pash to F1R3W@LL:* oh. wow. whatever you need, you let me know, F13. i got your back 1,000% pash *Then the possibly misguided call from Pash to her boyfriend Oliver:* "Hello," Oliver answers. "Hey, Oliver," Pash begins, "Before you say anything, I'm so sorry for disappearing for those couple weeks. It's just finals, and I'm a freshman, and family BS and all this other stuff came toppling down on me, and I know I should've texted or called, but I just like you a lot, and didn't want to pile all that emotional nonsense on you and I'm so so sorry." It sounds rushed and nervous, as she spills it all out in one breath. *Not to mention the Egyptian G-ds all telling me I'm worthless and mutilating my freakin' sides.* She pauses and continues, "I've treated you super badly, and I get if you don't wanna talk, but I needed to apologize." Oliver inhales sharply. "I. Okay." "Um. Is there any way I can make it up to you? Even a little?" Pash asks, almost pleadingly. "I- uh- miss you a lot." "Oh g-d I miss you, too." He replies, too fast. "Look, I - Simon talked to me and said you were going through some stuff." Pash lets out a choked sort of laugh. *That's an understatement.* "Pash?" "Yeah. That's... true," she clarifies. "Okay. Well. Um. I went through some stuff. While you weren't here," and then he pauses. It seems like an eternity, and her heart jumps to her throat. "Oh?" She asks, attempting to prompt him into whatever he is trying not to say, obviously nervous. "Um." He takes a few more seconds before answering. "I missed you. A lot. A whole lot. And it hurt. A lot. Also a whole lot. Basically it was pretty bad and I am not saying that to make you feel guilty - " His voice cracks a bit, "I am just saying so you know what things made me realize that I kind of really love you." Pash stops breathing. It takes a moment before she can compose herself enough to continue, "I- what? Really?" It is another set of long, long seconds before he replies, "I just missed you a lot. It's not really - like, I feel when I'm with you, my world is - like, all colors are brighter, truer. When you were gone and I couldn't talk to you, everything went grey. It was less." Pash pauses again. Composing herself she responds, "That's ridiculously romantic, you know..." "It is not!" He sounds offended. "It is," she says softly through a smile. "In the best way possible, it absolutely is. And, I, uh. I guess it'd be okay if I came to see you tonight, then?" "I'd um, like that." He sounds uncomfortable. "Is it - is it ok? That I love you?" "Yeah... I- erm... You know you're like my first real- uh- anything right? Like... I'm not saying it back because, what if I am wrong? I just... I wouldn't know. And I need to be 1000% sure. You're too special. Does... that makes sense, right? Is that okay?" "Oh." For a moment, there's something insecure in that, then with the next statement, it is quickly replaced by support. "Right. No worries, you have to be sure, and there's no pressure, and that doesn't change how I feel, and it's okay, I promise." *How is he so perfect?* "Okay. Um... how does 6 sound? I'll cook? You can even come to my place... if you want. I do live in Brooklyn, though." A pause. "_Where_ in Brooklyn?" A little taken aback she responds, "660 10th Avenue in Park Slope." "I don't care where it is in Brooklyn, that was a joke. I'll be there." Oliver sounds quiet, more sedate. "Oh. Uh. Right." She says, relieved. "So, at 6? I should be mostly done by then." "Yeah, I'll see you then." "Okay. You're wonderful. You know that, right?" "Um... Yeah, I'll see you then." He hangs up. "O- bye?" *Shit. I so fucked up.* *Now to see if F1R3W@LL will be home via text:* Pash: txt: oliver is coming over. lemme know if you're comin home early, plz? cookin dinner at 6 After a long pause...

Danica: txt: I fell in love once, I knew when I had a vision about it, results may vary? Pash: txt: wait... what?

Danica: txt: Whatever, if you're in love, you're in love. You've never been before and it shouldn't be a line. txt: I don't know, I'm not Simon, I don't know how it works Pash: txt: yeah... i'll ask txt: you're still awesome though txt: i appreciate it Danica: txt: It's true, but I always appreciate a reminder Pash: txt: ha. of course *As if on cue Simon pops into Pash's head:* Simon :: Sup. :: Pash :: I think Oliver may hate me. :: Simon :: Oliver likes you enough that he desperately asked me if you hated him. I told him you were dealing with some stuff cause you were sick. :: Pash :: No but... he told me he loves me, and I couldn't say it back. Psi, I think i broke his heart. :: Simon :: Reassure him that you care but you need time? I don't know what to do. :: Pash :: Yeah. I tried. I think I failed. :: Simon :: Hug. I'm so sorry. That's…do you think you never will or that it's a time thing? :: Pash :: I dunno. I just... it's still so new? I hope it's a time thing... :: Simon :: Then tell him that. :: Pash :: I did. We'll see i guess? Anyway you better treat Fie fucking right or I'll castrate you :: Simon :: Gruesome. :: Pash :: I know. You're the best, you know that? :: Simon :: Pash…I'm not gonna sleep with people anymore but…should I tell F13 who I've been sleeping with in the Accord before all this? Or should I just not. What's the protocol for this? :: Pash :: Um... I think maybe talking to her, and asking her if it matters first is a good step, you might be making a mountain out of a mole hill:: Simon :: How do I broach it? :: Pash :: Well, not during your date is for sure. :: Simon :: Well yes. But before it? After it? :: Pash :: Try not tonight. :: Simon :: Okay. :: Pash :: Tonight is special you and Fie time, yknow? :: Simon :: Are you gonna be okay? With Oliver? We're telling Irene to go to Harkins. :: Pash :: Oh, uh... we'll see. I hope he still loves me after he sees me again. :: Simon :: Even if it doesn't work out…we're here for you if you need us. :: Pash :: Yeah... thanks. Oh! Wait! Psi! how comfortable are you with reading my mind?!: Simon :: If you're okay with it? Sure. :: Pash :: And can you see subconscious feels and shit?:: Simon :: Yeah. :: Pash :: Is there a way you can tell if i'm in love with Oliver?! :: Simon :: …Yes, but are you sure you don't want to work through this? And even if you aren't, you might be someday... :: Pash :: I mean, I know that, but I meant right now. Because if I am, then I can not hurt him anymore! And if I am not... then I guess I'm already there, y'know?:: Simon :: I will check if you want me to. :: Pash :: Please, Simon. I'm, like, so forever in your debt. :: A pause. Simon :: You love him… but not romantically. I'm sorry. :: Pash :: Oh. Thanks anyway, psi:: Simon :: It might develop… but I can't tell you if it will. :: Pash :: Yeah. It's cool. :: *I am the worst person ever.*

I remember sitting on the back steps of my school in the cold weather, a hot chocolate in my hands. I use to play this song all the time, and just stare out into the field and watch the sky change. I've come a long way in my life, this band has really helped with that. I'm proud of who I am, with all the little fucked up twists in me.

if anything he's just a negative guy looking for attention. it's pathetic but he's not burning in hell for it because there is no hell. the fact is that no one has any fucking clue what happens after we die and if they say they know they're lying. BUT, why waste your life as a negative little asshole? that's the real question, haha. btw, good song lolol.

And the problems of most people in that third world country seem piddly at best compared to other groups of people. It could always, always, ALWAYS be worse no matter what and that doesn't mean you have to be absolutely ecstatic about your life 24/7. Maybe one day you'll grow up and realize a human being needs more than bread and water to flourish.

Great song but damn so many depressed people on here, be glad you have a roof over your head and get to eat more than 3 square meals a day, life ain't that bad people just go cry your problems to a child who lost both his legs in an explosion in Afghanistan.
