yeah, it fits.

So, my ex told me about this song; she said it reminded her of me… sad, but true… she had the “luck” of finding me after my first suicide attempt… I’m sure it was outrageously traumatic for her, and I feel bad about it.  She struggled with me and my depression for quite a while, but it was just too much…  I’m sure my wife could also relate to this, as she had the “honor” of struggling with me through a very tumultuous 2 years where I fought hard to be able to end my life… she found me on more than one occasion in a terribly dangerous situation… I’m grateful to both of these women for fighting when I was giving up, I just wish that neither had ever had to go through it… I cannot change the past, but I have control over the future.  I can work to prevent anyone else from ever having to go through that with me again.  To both of you, I can’t ever tell you how much I regret putting you through that…

…but I like Pink, and I like this song too.

The Great Escape

I can understand how when the edges are rough
And they cut you like the tiniest slithers of glass
And you feel too much
And you don’t know how long you’re gonna last,

But everyone you know, is tryin’ smooth it over,
Find a way to make the hurt go away,
But everyone you know, is tryin’ smooth it over,
Like you’re trying to scream underwater,
But, I won’t let you make the great escape,
I’m never gonna watch you checkin out of this place
I’m not gonna lose you
Cause the passion and the pain
Are gonna keep you alive someday
Gonna keep you alive someday

I feel like I could wave my fist in front of your face
And you wouldn’t flinch or even feel a thing
And you’ve retreated to your silent corner
Like you decided the fight was over for ya,

Everyone you know, is tryin’ smooth it over,
Find a way to make the hurt go away,
Everyone you know, is tryin’ smooth it over,
Everyone needs a floor they can fall through
I won’t let you make the great escape,
I’m never gonna watch you checkin outta this place
I’m not gonna lose you
Cause the passion and pain
Are gonna keep you alive someday
They’re gonna keep you alive someday

I’m terrified of the dark, but not if you go with me
And I don’t need a pill to make me numb
And I wrote the book on runnin’,
But that chapter of my life will soon be done

I’m the king of the great escape
You’re not gonna watch me checkin outta this place
You’re not gonna lose me
Cause the passion and pain
Are gonna keep us alive, someday
Yeah the passion and the pain
Are gonna keep us alive someday, someday
