Song of the night: Novacane by Frank ocean
First off, the beat is great. You could easily dance to it, or chill in bed, allowing for the sound to consume your mind. The line that sticks out to me the most is: “novacane, numb the pain.”All of us that have ever dealt with mental illness have thought these same words at one point or another. Numb the pain. Sometimes confronting our issues is more painful than the actual pain itself. For me, what has always helped me “numb the pain” is music. I have posted about it several times, but something that I have realized is that I can enjoy music more so now than when I was trying to escape. It honestly feels good to hear a song like this tonight, and know that I’m no longer in a place where I feel the need to be numb. But, reader, if you are still in that place, check this song out. I hope you enjoy it.
