Hometown
Akira Yamaoka Lyrics


He spoke of tortured souls
So outrageous the toll
You can lose all you have
He refused to give in to the town that takes all
Survive, you must have the will
This movie doesn't end the way we want all the time
Then he shouts at the moon
She's gone, and fear has overcome
He was walking the mile, he was walking alone
So outrageous the toll
You can lose all you have
He refused to give in to the town that takes all
Survive, you must have the will
This movie doesn't end the way we want all the time
Then he shouts at the moon
She's gone, and fear has overcome
He was walking the mile, he was walking alone

Four and twenty deadbirds, they bleed upon the nest
There was no time for reason, they had no sign of a threat
Now it's too late, too late for me
This town will eventually take me
Too late, too late for me
This town will win

(spoken)
Through this fog they come along
Dark creatures singing a terrible song
The rest of the bar laughed at him
Only I felt my hope grow dim
They found him dead the very next day
"No more stories from him," I heard them say
We blamed bad luck for his fate
Only I felt terror so great

She and he will know
that someday all things will end

That misty night
That dismal moon
The dead search for their kin
While angels sing, in endless dark
The dead seek out sin

silent hills 1 now with lyrics

I listen to this song as motivation to leave my hometown. I will not die here! Everytime I’ve left I’ve been dragged back into my hometown due to certain circumstances. I’m trying to leave once again let’s hope I succeed this time.

There’s always that little voice saying “just stay here it’s easier, you don’t have to leave it’s easy”

This town really is my Own silent hill, not in terms of monsters but it’s my own little slice of hell.

Hoping you achieve the Leave ending. Good luck out there, chief.

@ya skirt. I have no idea what the fuck is wrong. Is it me? No one talks to me I study normal things people might like out here sports, weather, politics, etc and I have all these topics and no one to tell them to. I joined a gym and there’s barely anyone who goes there in this small town. They all work out and again drone on like npcs. I ask how to do a certain workout and they just tell me how and I try make conversation and they’re like “o cool” and leave me alone. What’s wrong with me? I go out to public places trying to make conversations and all I get is mindless stares, or the usual “oh cool, nice, wow, oh that’s crazyyyy”

What is wrong with me? I feel cursed. I mean it can’t be me, I only have a slight lisp but I behave in a normal manner. I don’t have the crazy eyes when I talk to people, I stand up straight, I smile, make eye contact I do everything right! Why can’t I leave?! What the hell is wrong with this town man?

@ya skirt. it’d doesn’t help it’d more of a detriment. I talk to people online I know I won’t be able to touch, hear, or see. I’m stuck here in this hellish town. I’m not even fucking joking it’s hell here. All the jobs are fucking taken, I can’t make money to leave. I’m gunna fucking die here I know it.

Frogwell

This town is filled with old asshole already at the end of their lives and I’m stuck here! I can’t take it anymore!!

I’m so alone here, I tried dating apps but the town is so small he only people on the app are miles away. I try talk to people here but they just want to be left alone. I don’t know what’s wrong is it me? Seriously this town is driving me insane. IM SERIOUSLY CRAVING ALCOHOL AGAIN BUT IF I DRINK IT WILL LITERALLY KILL ME! I haven’t had a genuine conversation wit someone in MONTHS!! Not even small talk! What is wrong with this town bruh!?

No one here talks! I really feel like I’m losing it. I try talkin to people at bars but they either ignore me or just say “uh huh oh yeah? Cool whoa that’s crazy” and not any real input. Like I just want to go out and scream! CAN YOU HEAR ME?! AM I HERE!?” Jesus Christ! It’s hell!
