My favorite song on ROOPTG is Making Waves. The Swellers have been one of my all time favorite bands since I first got into them. I really don't even know where to begin. I found a community of friends through them and felt accepted for the first time in a long time. They've been an indirect catalyst for numerous positive changes in my life, and they've also been the background music to my life for the past couple years. "Making Waves" is probably the most relevant to my life right now. I've spent a lot of time resenting my childhood and struggling with various mental disorders, and I'm only now attempting to turn some of that resentment into productivity. I realized that I have every right to hate someone who turned my life to shit, and I'm moving forward with my life as retribution instead of wallowing in self pity. The song reads like a big fuck you to everyone who's tried to hold me back/use me for their personal benefit.
