Inside The Lines: “I am not afraid to keep on living”

Illustration by Michael White.

This week’s “Inside the Lines” quotes “Famous Last Words”  song performed by the band My Chemical Romance. The song was the second single on their third studio album “The Black Parade” released 2007.

This illustration displays a black woman on the floor of a slave ship next to another, they share a bondage and terrifying experience. The image is drawn and designed to the words (of the song “Famous Last Words”)

‘Cause I see you lying next to me
With words I thought I’d never speak
Awake and unafraid
Asleep or dead…

This image represents a person realizing their true purpose in their life and no matter what position someone else tries to keep them in. Their Will to live, would concur evil.

 

 

Now I know
That I can’t make you stay
But where’s your heart?
But where’s your heart?
But where’s your

And I know
There’s nothing I can say
To change that part
To change that part
To change

So many
Bright lights that cast a shadow
But can I speak?
Well, is it hard understanding

I’m incomplete?
A life that’s so demanding
I get so weak
A love that’s so demanding
I can’t speak

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay
I’ll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home

Can you see
My eyes are shining bright?
‘Cause I’m out here
On the other side

Of a jet black
Hotel mirror
And I’m so weak
Is it hard understanding

I’m incomplete?
A love that’s so demanding
I get weak

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay
I’ll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay
I’ll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home

These bright lights have always blinded me
These bright lights have always blinded me
I say

I see you lying next to me
With words I thought I’d never speak
Awake and unafraid
Asleep or dead

‘Cause I see you lying next to me
With words I thought I’d never speak
Awake and unafraid
Asleep or dead

‘Cause I see you lying next to me
With words I thought I’d never speak
Awake and unafraid
Asleep or dead

‘Cause I see you lying next to me
With words I thought I’d never speak
Awake and unafraid
Asleep or dead

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay
I’ll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay
I’ll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home

I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone
Honey, if you stay
I’ll be forgiven
Nothing you can say can stop me going home
