Alt-Rock band Snowtown delivers a dark song entitled “Happy Birthday,“ which is unique and different in its context. The intimate lyrics are based on a real-life experience of the group’s band member Jesse Garcia. Basically, it’s about suicidal thoughts, and I’m sure it will resonate with a lot of people who are struggling with depression. Teenage years are the hardest in a person’s existence. When the artist was 15 years old, he decided to end his life. But after the party, his friend didn’t go home and stayed with him most of the night, unaware of Jesse’s plan. That saved his life.
Without a doubt, this is a tune to get emotional and cry it all out. Even so, it’s also crucial to create awareness and help others who are living a similar situation. In brief, the message of “Happy Birthday” is that you can always take comfort in your friends or talk with a skilled, trained counselor at a crisis center in your area. Never let a stumble in the road be the end of your journey!
