The Greener Grass *new rough lyrics*
10/22/09 at 11:46 PM by Trevor Sostarich
Iím done with all of my boring nonsense
and speaking for everything in past tense
Just want to speak for the here and now
cause I know Iím done letting myself down
overcoming things that Iíve done
finding new meaning in old songs
all about my long lost loves
whom I have no reason speaking of


I finally realized everything they said
ďYouíre gonna be someone.Ē
ďyouíre gonna help them mend.Ē
(Broken hearts, the lonely and depressed)
ďyouíre the voice of reason now sing to them!Ē

I know I will never save the world
but I can save myself
and I know I am ready now
to be the voice of everyone else
how could I be if I canít define
the person I have been this entire time
but now I see with non hazy eyes
the greener grass on the other side

I use to curl up in bathrooms at night
after drugs and alcohol took over my life
always attempting to find an escape
but all of my reality was slipping away
but those days are gone for me now
I finally figured myself out
for what I wanted this whole entire time
was right there staring me back in my eyes

I finally realized that Iím someone
should have listened from day one
Iíve already had my time to mend
Now I reach out to all of them!
I know I will never save the world
but I can save myself
and I know I am ready now
to be the voice of everyone else
how could I be if I canít define
the person I have been this entire time
but now I see with non hazy eyes
the greener grass on the other side

I thought Iíd lost it all in the end
then I came running back again
to the voices that use to call my name
somehow they never gave up faith
in me and all of my idealistic poetry
of all the personaís I had long to be
finding truth, no more lies
cut the rope to my demise

I know I will never save the world
but I can save myself
and I know I am ready now
to be the voice of everyone else
how could I be if I canít define
the person I have been this entire time
but now I see with non hazy eyes
the greener grass on the other side




PS - Iím very wordy, but I like it that way.

What A Day
10/10/09 at 11:35 PM by Trevor Sostarich
This has been one of the hardest days to make it through. So much drama going on within my personal life. Seriously I'm just getting better from my kidney stone and surgery, just lay the fuck off right now.

Anyway no more ranting. I'm really thankful for a few albums that helped me get through today. You can find them below.
  • Relient K - Forget and Not Slow Down
  • The Matches - Decomposer
  • Cary Brothers - Who You Are
I'm going to attempt to go to bed at this moment. Hopefully when I wake up it'll be a good day. I can be hopeful.

A Blog From My Hospital Bed
10/04/09 at 02:52 PM by Trevor Sostarich
Last night I got a sharp pain in my back around midnight. I mean really sharp almost stabbing like pain. It was so bad that I was throwing up and I just couldn't get comfortable. I got rushed to the ER around 2 in the morning and I've been here ever since. Found out I have a huge kidney stone (7.5 mm). Today they put me to sleep and put a catheter up in my penis. They moved the kidney stone but they haven't gotten rid of it. I gotta make an appointment for this week or next week to get rid of it. I'm just waiting to pee in order to go home right now. I'm not in pain anymore since they moved it. I'm glad I can eat some food again and drink some water again. I'm saying goodbye to soda, tea, and alcohol for a while. Time to take care of myself before anything else goes wrong.

07/30/09 at 11:25 PM by Trevor Sostarich
So I'm trying to go through and grab all the albums that are my favorite records so far this year. Doing this every three months or so helps me keep it organized and also helps narrow it down to a top 10 at the end of the year. Below you can see the list in no particular order.

The Dangerous Summer - Reach For The Sun
Fun. - Aim & Ignite
A Day To Remember - Homesick
New Found Glory - Not Without A Fight
All Time Low - Nothing Personal
Cursive - Mama, I'm Swollen
Manchester Orchestra - Mean Everything To Nothing
Set Your Goals - This Will Be The Death Of Us
This Providence - Who Are You Now?
My Favorite Highway - How To Call A Bluff (Re-Release)
P.O.S. - Never Better
Mariachi El Bronx - Mariachi El Bronx
RX Bandit - Mandala
Owl City - Ocean Eyes
My Hidden Track - Hey Love
The Apathy Eulogy - Resolve To Dream
Fake Problems - It's Great To Be Alive
Green Day - 21st Century Breakdown
Karate High School - Invaders
Mansions - New Best Friends
Ace Enders & A Million Different People - When I Hit The Ground
Kevin Devine - Brother's Blood
Two Tongues - Two Tongues
The Dear Hunter - Act III: Life and Death


I know I'm missing some right now, but that's what I got for now. Some of you may have a similar list. Some of you may have a completely different list. This is everything that's been getting high rotation this year that came out this year. More will be posted as the year goes on.

Went to Warped Tour yesterday
07/25/09 at 12:17 PM by Trevor Sostarich
And I don't get the feeling that I use to while I was there. I watched You, Me, and Everyone We Know, Less Than Jake, All Time Low, Lights, Big D and The Kids Table and that was about it. Seriously I just felt out of place being there. I felt old. I was tired two hours in. It was too hot. I feel like I could have spent my money on something better. This tour just doesn't mean the same to me. It doesn't even stand for what it use to stand for. The tour is slowly becoming a joke. Give me my punk rock. I don't want The Maine or Every Avenue. Even worse I don't want Brokencyde or Millionaires. These bands are jokes. I won't be going back to another Warped Tour until they have a better line up, or if the ticket is given to me for free. Needless to say I won't be wasting my money on this again.

It's My Birthday!
07/08/09 at 12:07 PM by Trevor Sostarich
I'm 21 today. I find it refreshing, but I'm sad about it too. I can drink legally, but I don't feel the need to really drink anymore. I drank last night though. At midnight I was at the bar all my friends hangout at. I drank for free and I don't really remember coming home. I also apparently woke my whole house up when I got home. I miscalculated the whole diving into bed thing and landed on the floor. My brother and my mom tried to get me up, but I started puking. I don't even want to see alcohol for the rest of today. I just want to relax.

That being said I've got some things to pick up today. Here's my list:
  • All Time Low - Nothing Personal
  • The Gay Blades - Ghost
  • Wish You Were Here by Leslie Simon

I'm now off to get on with my day.

Epilogue *lyrics in progress*
07/01/09 at 10:45 PM by Trevor Sostarich
Soaking in the sweat of what I long to be
I was sorry before this all happened
but stubborn-ness took the best of me
I would re-write these pages if I knew they'd be read
but all I did was put the book down
for it to never be picked back up again
it's a whole new chapter with the same old cover
it's been beaten at the seams, but I still annotate
between the heroin and his lover
and all of the lines that they speak
underlining paragraphs of what they meant to say

can I be a cliff note that you always remember
through the rainiest of days
when it's overcast on your mind
and you lose all hope in everything.
can I be the one there to save you
right at the very end
where all the sentences run together
and all of your broken starts to mend.
Let me be your Epilogue

"Better Than That" *rough lyrics*
06/25/09 at 11:41 PM by Trevor Sostarich
Sitting on the edge of my seat
on a porch at two in the morning
I think about getting some sleep
but my mind is only racing
I'm dwelling again on my mistakes
that I will never live down
and I don't blame you if you won't forgive me
it's everything I deserve now

but I'm here and I'm not giving up just yet
because I know that this can all be fixed

I remember when you would say
"you're better than that, you're better than that"
I remember when you would say
"you're better than that,
boy you're better than that"
and I know I am

coughing up my lungs thinking about
everything that I've done wrong
and I know that there are some doubts
but you are my one and only song
I'm sorry I didn't realize it before
I took off and ran far away
but now I'm back and this time for good
so believe me when I say

I'm here and I'm not giving up just yet
because I know that this can all be fixed

I remember when you would say
"you're better than that, you're better than that"
I remember when you would say
"you're better than that,
boy you're better than that"

and I know I am
everything you could ask for
everything that you could need
and if I'm not that in your eyes
than I'll just set you free
for someone else to win your heart
to make those butterflies flutter inside
and I hope that he will never tear you apart
like I have done so many times

I remember when you would say
"you're better than that, you're better than that"
I remember when you would say
"you're better than that,
boy you're better than that"

I remember when you would say
"you're better than that, you're better than that"
I remember when you would say
"you're better than that,
boy you're better than that"

and I know I am
I know I am...




--------------------------------------------------------

These lyrics are just in the rough stages. I'm working on this song and I figured I'd share what I have so far. Feedback is always welcomed, whether it's positive or negative. Let me know what ya think.

PS. It's an up tempo song. Maybe that way you can put a beat to it.

This is how I feel
05/02/09 at 01:13 PM by Trevor Sostarich
I'm a paint brush in a way.
I'm simple, yeah, I'm plain.
I'm colored all the same.
I have meaning if you find it in yourself.
I'll sell myself or not,
like I really give a fuck
I'm just an artist on a shelf.



Pick up The Dangerous Summer's new album on Tuesday. It's seriously one of the best pop rock albums I've heard in a long time. The lyrics are great. The music is great. I've had it on repeat for days now.

Just Got Done Getting Tattooed Again.
03/30/09 at 12:52 AM by Trevor Sostarich
We've started on my lower arm. This sleeve will be done soon. I cannot wait. Once I have my camera I'll take pictures and post them. It looks really, really good. The whole arm has a musical theme.

My playlist for the past week has been a weird one. I've been listening to the following:

The Dangerous Summer
Blue October
Cobra Starship
You, Me, and Everyone We Know
Blink-182
Say Anything
Brand New
Good Old War
Mansions
P.O.S.

Another New Tattoo (picture included)
03/19/09 at 01:53 AM by Trevor Sostarich
So I got this tonight. My buddy Nick (my best friend and tattoo artist) called me and told me Jesse (the other guy he works with at the tattoo shop) wanted to tattoo me. The theme for my sleeve is music, so Jesse wanted to do a boombox (aka ghetto blaster). I was down. Kind of spark of the moment, plus it was free. You just can't beat it. Below is the work that was done.



I personally love it. It came out so good. Now I can't sleep because I took a morphine pill just in case it would hurt. It didn't hurt at all (morphine pills work for that). The only downer is I have to be at work at 12 and I'm doing a double and I'm wide awake at 4:52 in the morning. I need to get some sleep!!!

Pretty Good Day
03/14/09 at 10:06 PM by Trevor Sostarich
Woke up at around 1:30 in the afternoon. Went home from the house I crashed at. Cleaned up the room a little bit. Got my buddy Cory and we went to a Hoobastank concert here in town. Only like a 150 people showed up for it. I feel bad for the band and the venue. Now I'm home!

I got the new This Providence CD in the mail today. I really like it. You can tell it wasn't forced at all. It reminds me of Our Worlds Divorce mixed with Saves The Day. Good stuff indeed.

Back to cleaning the room a bit. I'll be posting my recommendations later on tonight.

I'm a trend whore.
03/02/09 at 11:11 PM by Trevor Sostarich
So I've been looking for a good online blog site. I have a livejournal (which sucks by the way) and a wordpress (which for some reason I can't figure out). Today I came across Tumblr. Now I realize how popular that site is. I love it though. It's easy to customize and it's really easy to update. Everything is explained simpley on there, which is what I'm looking for. I can also have my twitter hooked up right to it (told ya I was a trend whore). Awesome. I've made quite a few post on there today as well. Things I posted today are listed below.

- Joke from dinner
- Blink-182 and Angels & Airwaves mash up. It's what I think the new album will sound like.
- A movie trailer for I Love You, Man.
- A greeting
- An overall update.
- A link to AbsolutePunk. REPRESENT!!!



Anyone else as big of a trend whore as myself?
