A song I'm sure we all can relate to. I first listened to this when I was 13 and just starting to really deal with things. It messed me up when I first heard it, and the hundred or so times I listened to it afterward. Maybe I was triggering then, but I didn't know what that was anyway back then. But I would become extremely angry then depressed rapidly when I did, eventually there were times I couldn't listen to it anymore and just threw the earphones off. But it did make me realise the reality of what happened to me and what happened to others. The song is about what it obviously implies, the singer himself,Aaron Lewis was sexually abused. One thing I had wanted to do in my life was to make music myself and help others through it, but, that's prolly' not gonna' happen.

Staind-Yesterday Album: 14 Shades Of Gray
Verse 1
You don't know what you've put me through
it's okay, i've forgiven you
but in some way, hope it fucks with you
hope it fucks with you

that i'm okay and i've made it through
but whos to say what your going through
i'll say no names, though i've wanted to
isn't it strange how it seems like...

[chorus]
yesterday, a boy and already afraid
locked deep inside, my place to hide
to hide from how you made me feel
and i wonder how's your brother
did he end up fucked up like me?
lost in himself, crying for help
it's safe to say


Verse 2
i learned to live without a pride
just a shell, with me stuck inside
a prison, not a place to hide
not a place to hide

but i'm okay and i've made it through
but whos to say what your going through
i'll say no names, though i've wanted to
isn't it strange how it seems like...

[chorus]

[chorus (altered)]

yesterday, a boy and already afraid
locked deep inside, my place to hide
to hide from how you made me feel
and i wonder how's your brother
did he finally pull through like me?
finding himself, not needing help
i'd like to say

Thanks for posting this Geist! Now I will have to have a listen.

And maybe you will make music or something else to help others get through.

Don't give up on your dreams.
