  • That One Emo Kid No One Likes from Here, In Death Valleydetox just to retox kinda made me think about how you would say that you won't love anyone again, but really you just need time to yourself to heal your broken heart so that you can go back again, you're detox-ing from love, leaving it and doing your best not associate with love, only to fall back in love
  • Delphine from IrelandDetox Just To Retox for me means how I had to boycott Fall Out Boy to concentrate on my exams (cause if I listened to them in the morning I couldn't work after, but if I did it in the evening I wouldn't sleep!) It was a tough few weeks, but I took comfort in the knowledge that right after I would have a month of freedom to retox as much as I wanted :D
