Someone's Standing On My Chest

Album: Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses (2002)

Songfacts®:

  • In the liner notes to the 2004 release of Suicide Notes And Butterfly Kisses, Alex Varkatas wrote: "Another oldie. We are not alone. We all feel depressed sometimes, like no one understands us and like we hurt worse than anyone. I hate to say it but it's just not true. We all go through EXACTLY the same things in life. The only difference is how we react to them. Even 3 years after I have written this, I still feel the same way I felt when I first committed these feelings to paper. Totally hopeless but I think why I wrote this, and that I AM NOT ALONE in my misery, and even though it sounds Sh--ty it makes me feel better." >>
