this post is gonna be pretty gay but I feel like voicing my full and true appreciation

I've felt a connection with NMN my whole life, literally since my dad was playing them even just after I was born, and I can't recall a time where they weren't a part of my life. Over that course, they've managed to stir up all kinds of feelings with their songwriting. Sure, they're often pretty heavy with humorous sarcastic stuff, but at the same time they can pen a hugely moving track. They never cease to cheer me up no matter the conditions, and (the gayness) they somehow make me confident in myself, and bring about some deep inner surge to never give up and that nothing can stop being from being the champion.

Literally these songs here:



Quote:
When I set out on this journey
I thought it would never end
When I started down that road
I could not see the end
And when I took that first step
I fell in so deep
And all those things that were so hard-won
I thought I would always keep

Now what do you think I see
standing like a wall
in front of me

Defeat, not victory
Defeat, not victory
Defeat, not victory

So what are you going to do? Die?
No
you gonna lay down and die?
No
I will not admit defeat
I will not admit defeat
I will see victory

Pride and deceit
have choked my life like weeds
And I lost sight of what I really
had what I really need
And all the things I should've valued
I gave away for a prayer and a song
And now when I reach out for them
they are gone
Now you know what I see
standing in front of me
Like a headstone
a ****ing monument to human misery

Defeat, not victory
Defeat, not victory
Defeat, not victory

Do I have any friends here?
I can't see
are any of my friends here?
I can't see
what about you?
Will you be a friend to me?
What about you? Will you be a friend to me?
I've got a question to ask you
and then you can ask it of me
It's a simple request
and then you can make it of me
Can you forgive me? Can you see what will be?
Is it victory?

Now I can't show you
all the things I ve seen
And I can't make you feel anything
Certainly not what they meant to me
And someday I know, no matter how hard we try
We are all going to have to
lay down and die
So maybe I should just tell you what I hope and believe
For every defeat there will be a victory
For every defeat there will be a victory in defeat,
victory


Quote:
One fine day
When I'm strong enough
I'll stand up out of this chair
And walk away
One fine day
If I live long enough
Youll see the back of me as I'm walking away

Ill go on and on and on
Across the porch and over the lawn
And when I reach the street
See the dust fly off my feet

One fine day
I will settle up
Empty my account
And give it away
And on that day
Conversation will cease
The arguments and questions
Will fade away
Ill go on and on and on
To the edge of town
Ill keep my feet on the ground
But never again will I look down

Maybe I have no guts
Maybe I love you all too much
But I can't sleep I can't breath
It's tearing me up, it's tearing me up
It's tearing the heart out of me

One fine day
Ill wake up to find
All my fears and heartaches
Have melted away
And on that day
All the mists will clear
The sun will shine
And nothing will stand in my way
Ill go on and on and on
With nothing to weigh me down
then they meditate on loneliness in ways that are so deeply relatable





(the gayness) Out of everything I've ever listened to, NMN have had the most impact on my life and perhaps shaped my being over these last 22 years

still finding it hard to dig this band past the first EP and Mother which both blew me away

I just can not ride for the guitarist they added
