The monster and the battle

Sometimes in the morning I’m petrified and can’t move

And the weight is crushing down on my lungs,
You know I can’t breathe, and hope someone will save me this time

A Better Son/Daughter by Rilo Kiley is almost a military march, which is very appropriate because depression is a war against a very strong monster. And this song makes you feel it’s a battle one can win.

The video’s quality is as raw as the pain in Lewis’s face…
