HEY!!! I wanna talk about this song for a moment. I wrote this song quite a while ago when I was young and didn't have a complete comprehension on how to clearly get across the meaning of my messages. This song is not meant to be creepy or some sort of fun horror song; it was meant to raise awareness for some of the darker parts of mental illness which I have experienced first hand. I also wanted to raise awareness for the Jani Foundation, which is a foundation based in California that's meant to fund programs that help mentally ill kids have special functioning programs in school. Schizophrenia is an extremely serious condition that should not be taken lightly. However, a person has schizophrenia, schizophrenia is not a person. It does not define people who suffer from the illness.
One of my bestest friends in the entire universe has this disorder, and she is so incredibly strong and shines brighter and brighter every day. This situation is not hopeless. Jani herself is getting better every day.
Q: Do Jani's parents know about this song?
A: Yes they do.
Q: Were they offended?
A: No, they liked this song and it will soon be available on the Jani Foundation for download.
Q: How is Jani doing nowadays?
A: She is doing much better now than at the time I wrote this song.
Q: What does Jani think of this song?
A: She hasn't heard it but she likes the way I draw 24 Hours.
Q: Aren't you selling 24 Hours shirts?
A: Why yes! Yes I am!!!
Q: Where can I buy one?
A: Here: http://www.cafepress.com/janifoundation
Q: Can I have the MP3?
A: Yaaaass http://www.mediafire.com/download/8u8...
They can't see it, but you can. They can't hear it, but you can. They scratch, they tear at you, they tear you apart, but nobody can feel it except you. This is for that little girl who sees what you can't see, who hears what you can't hear, and hurts when you see no scars. This is for January Schofield, the 9 year old schizophrenic.
(Note: There are names like "400", "Wednesday", "24 Hours" and "Sycamore" -- those are some of her hallucinations.)
There are not enough words in the dictionary to explain how I feel. The pain for Jani, the gratitude for the people who helped me so much with this project... There are no words. I am so glad for all of those who helped me, for those who really put in an effort to make this project become what it is.
Thank you, especially, to Planty-P for dealing with me and helping me with it. He did a lot, including engrish up the VSQ for me before I pitch bent it and stuff!
