about

Mental illnesses, particularly alcoholism and addiction, are often heavily stigmatized in our society, and that stigma can keep people from getting the help they need. It is important for people to recognize that mental illness and its symptoms are not a moral failure on the part of the person who suffers from them. But it is also important for those of us who suffer from mental illness to know that too, and to feel that we can reach out for help.

Remember, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to any particular mental illness, so don't become discouraged if one particular option isn't right for you. Healing and recovery can take time, but they are ultimately possible for anyone.

If you, or someone you know, is struggling with a mental illness (including addiction), there are many resources available to you:

www.mentalhealthamerica.net/finding-help
www.mentalhealth.gov/get-help/
americanaddictioncenters.org/rehab-guide/free/

And as always, if you don't know where to turn, the members of this band are always available to talk and help point you in the right direction.

lyrics

10. Blood Upon Your Hands

Waiting for the sunlight on a night that never ends
Hated by my family, rejected by my friends.
I’m sticking to the shadows and I’m hoping no one sees,
Because the only antidote I know is feeding my disease.

You all wanna talk,
But you don’t have a clue.
‘Cause there’s no way to know
Until,
Until it happens to you.

I’ve heard the way they whisper, say we’re broken, can’t be fixed.
Is that the way you’d talk to someone who is really sick?
Your stigma keeps us hidden, cause you don’t understand.
The bottle was in mine, but there is blood upon your hands.

There’s blood upon your hands,
‘Cause you don’t fucking understand.

So would you spit upon my grave and tell me that I deserved it?
Would you spit upon my grave and tell me my life was worthless?
You fucking spit upon their graves, you say that their lives are worthless.
You fucking spit upon their graves, you say that they all deserved this.

No, no, no,
No, you don’t fucking know.
No, no, no,
No, you don’t fucking know anything.
No, you don’t fucking know anything.
You keep your mouth shut.
