Help w/ tattoo idea from inspirational song
« on: March 26, 2014, 09:12:48 PM »
Hey all, I wasn't sure if I should post this here but it involves a song that inspires me.  I have recently made huge leaps in regards to my anxiety and depression mostly due to seeing a therapist.  I want to get a tattoo (my first) as a reminder to how far I've grown in dealing with anxiety.  The song is called "Ghosts" by We Came as Romans.  Here are the lyrics:

Bad habits are ghosts haunting me
A thought that never leaves
From when I wake until I sleep
To seek heaven in my dreams
Where I feel I can finally breathe
Forget everything
Away from my reality

Because as long as I stay here
I won't face my fears
Right now I fear myself
And what my heart held

The worst words or warmest heart
Self-serving or selfless love
The worst words or warmest heart
Self-serving or selfless love

I will scream 'til the breath is gone from my lungs
I will scream 'til it's gone
I will leave all the rest of my ghosts behind
I will leave them behind

Ghosts haunting me aren't defining me
Ghosts taunting me are reminding me


Change the way you act,
Change the way you act, not just the way you think
Change the way you live, live the way you claim
Words are just words, until they're put to work
And it will be actions, not words, that change this earth

Change the way you live
Change the way you live

Change (Change)
Change (Change)
Change the way you act, not just the way you think
Not just the way you think, way you think
Change the way you live, live by the words you say
Live by the words you say, words you say

I will scream 'til the breath is gone from my lungs
I will scream 'til it's gone
I will leave all the rest of my ghosts behind
I will leave them behind

Change the way you act, not just the way you think
Change the way you live, live the way you claim
Words are just words, until they're put to work
And it will be actions, not words, that change this earth.
(Change the way you live) 


To me this song is beautiful and perfectly describes the struggle of anxiety.  Anxiety does not define who I am but it is a very real struggle that I will be dealing with to some degree for the rest of my life.  The bold lines are my favorite and I would like to get a tattoo inspired by these lyrics.  I am not terribly creative, so would like some ideas.  I have one idea but would like to see if this song inspires others as well.  Basically I would like to know what comes to your mind when you read those lines.  I want to do something more than get a text tattoo.  Any input is appreciated!
