I thought I was more important, more effective than I am, that I could… fix everything.

Now all I can do is keep running.

It was easy to get me to do this TV show. All the roles I’ve ever gotten, you’ve seen the roles I’ve gotten. They’ve been wonderful but so many of them have been downtrodden. They’ve been women who are pretty much asexual, they haven’t been realized, they have careers but no names. And all of a sudden I was given this opportunity to play someone sexy, mysterious, someone complicated. And it was a chance to use my craft. It was a chance to transform. It was a chance to surprise myself and the public. And I took it. - Viola Davis

LYRICS:

I’m a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm
And the scars that mark my body, they’re silver and gold
My blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones
It keeps my veins hot, the fires find a home in me
I move through town, I’m quiet like a fire
And my necklace is of opal, I tie it and untie
And our people talk to me, but nothing ever hits
So people talk to me, and all the voices just burn holes
I’m going in

This is the start of how it all ends
They used to shout my name, now they whisper it
I’m speeding up and this is the
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
We’re at the start, the colors disappear
I never watch the stars there’s so much down here
So I just try to keep up with them
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart

I dream all year, but they’re not the same kinds
And the shivers move down my shoulder blades in double time
And now people talk to me I’m slipping out of reach now
People talk to me, and all their faces blur
But I got my fingers laced together and I made a little prison
And I’m locking up everyone who ever laid a finger on me
I’m going in

This is the start of how it all ends
They used to shout my name, now they whisper it
I’m speeding up and this is the
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart
We’re at the start, the colors disappear
I never watch the stars there’s so much down here
So I just try to keep up with them
Red, orange, yellow flicker beat sparking up my heart

And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat
Sparking up my heart
And this is the red, orange, yellow flicker beat-beat-beat-beat


Mum: Have you ever wanted to try and kill yourself?
Josh: Oh, gosh. No. Not really. There’s been times where, like, I didn’t want to feel anything anymore and it seemed like a nice idea but all those times, they passed.
Mum: Oh, okay. So how did they pass?
Josh: Well, I dunno. Maybe Everybody Loves Raymond came on. Maybe someone offered me pancakes. I love pancakes.
Mum: But you never wanted to do anymore than that?
Josh: Oh, once when I was 19, I wrote a suicide note.
Mum: Oh, I’m sorry.
Josh: No, I don’t think that’s a big deal, is it? To want to kill yourself for an afternoon? That’s normal. As long as you don’t actually try.
