about

We hate to say goodbye to our brothers and our friends. New Ben Franklins suffered a terrible loss on December 18, 2017 with the passing of one of our own, drummer Mark Kosta. This song wrenches out some of the feelings of loss and helplessness in the face of someone's internal struggles and pain.

lyrics

I know it's hard to live life on your own
I know it's hard to spend your time alone
I know the demons who lurk behind every darkened door
and the happiness you miss, the joy you always had before
I know it's so hard to get blood from a stone

Who would have known Monday morning would be so dark?
Who could have known Monday morning would break your heart?

I know you feel like you're alone in this fight
It feels like you will never find a path to light
I know that we were raised up strong, to always be a man
but in the night there comes a weakness, we all fight the best we can
I know it gets so hard to push back against the night

Who would have known Monday morning would be so dark?
Who could have known Monday morning would break your heart?

And you said this wouldn't end well, but I guess we never heard
The desperation in your voice, the hidden meaning in your words
And the things that always haunted you, I guess the pain became too much
And the only answer that made sense was to feel the darkness' touch

I know it's hard to live life inside your head
I know it's often easier to sometimes wish you're dead
I know it sometimes feels like there's no one who cares at all
But there are people here who love you, who want to help you when you fall
I know you never heard many times that it was said

Who would have known Monday morning could be so dark?
Who could have known Monday morning would break your heart?
