Thoughts on Songs with Zedd

I think that the song and its music video convey the idea that even when people have reached an ultimate low in their lives and perhaps see no point in continuing as they hate the world and themselves, there is still beauty in them and life even if they don't understand it at the moment. Whenever you reach such a juncture in your life, you need to remember that life is beautiful, so keep pushing, and the pieces will all fit together in retrospect someday.

This song makes me emotional because it makes me think of the things in the past I try to hold onto. "We're smart enough to know that no one gets out alive" represents the mortality of the body. Life is blessing, but the body is also a prison of sorts. That's why nobody gets out alive. And those who did should be remembered (remember the ghosts before you, drink to their souls tonight) honor their souls tonight. By holding on we can get hurt, but at the same time it is the only thing that keeps sane. (Hold on to someone close, friend.) By far one of my favorite songs I've heard in a while.

This song is all over my mind from the last couple of days. I literally listen to it hundred of times. The video is very heart touching and meaningful. I can experience the feeling in front of my eyes every time I see the video. Zed is one of the best DJ for me after this song. I’m murmuring it for a couple of days and I can’t stop myself, “Pa Pa Pa Papapapa pa pa pa”.
