Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin ft. Lacey Sturm

The Experience: God let me go... How long is long enough?
The Vibe: Suffering.
The Topic: Commitment.
The Value: Perseverance.
The Tension: I will fight until the end (I'm not giving up) VS. Dear Agony just let go of me (But please let it end).

Music video: Breaking Benjamin and Lacey Sturm let us close enough to see the emotion on their faces. It's not pride at standing so strong. It's relief at finally finding peace when their fight is over.

The Meaning of Dear Agony: Burdens big enough to need a hero are also big enough to break a hero. Dear Agony takes us inside a hero's pain. It can only hurt so much because you're committed. You're not going anywhere. You're not dropping your burden: I will fight for one last breath I will fight until the end.  But it hurts - agony. You're running out of strength: I have nothing left to give. You want it to end - please let go of me. You're praying to God that it does. You just want to die - let forever drag me down - and make it to heaven's arms already. Breaking Benjamin and Lacey Sturm take us inside the gritty pain of real-life heroism. They take us face to face with the worst enemy of all. The coward inside all of us: I will find the enemy within cause I can feel it crawl beneath my skin. And in the end, they take us to the peace past the agony: somewhere far beyond this world I feel nothing anymore.

Ask yourself: Can you take the pain that perseverance brings? Is it worth it?

Album: Aurora (2020)

LYRICS:


I have nothing left to give
I have found the perfect end
You were made to make it hurt
Disappear into the dirt
Carry me to heaven's arms
Light the way and let me go
Take the time to take my breath
I will end where I began

And I will find the enemy within
Cause I can feel it crawl beneath my skin

Dear Agony
Just let go of me
Suffer slowly
Is this the way it's gotta be?
Dear Agony

Suddenly
The lights go out
Let forever
Drag me down
I will fight for one last breath
I will fight until the end

And I will find the enemy within
Cause I can feel it crawl beneath my skin

Dear Agony
Just let go of me
Suffer slowly
Is this the way it's gotta be?
Don't bury me
Faceless enemy
I'm so sorry
Is this the way it's gotta be?
Dear Agony

Leave me alone
God let me go
I'm blue and cold
Black sky will burn
Love pull me down
Hate lift me up
Just turn around
There's nothing left

Somewhere far beyond this world
I feel nothing anymore

Dear Agony
Just let go of me
Suffer slowly
Is this the way it's gotta be?
Don't bury me
Faceless enemy
I'm so sorry
Is this the way it's gotta be?
Dear Agony

I feel nothing anymore
