The #metoo movement has inspired us to share the story of someone we loved and lost in our new song Caroline. It is nearly impossible to explain what it is like to live with PTSD. Nearly 1/4 of women will experience some form of domestic violence in their lives, and we are determined to help them have the courage to speak up. Don’t be afraid. You are not alone.

Lyrics:

She’s a light, smothered in endless night. A fading flame, struggling just to survive…

Born into constant betrayal always set up to fail, call me cynical, but I must know, what keeps her alive, what keeps her alive?

She won’t open her mouth til we open our eyes and see this cross she has borne all along, will this laughter and scorn turn to hearts ever torn, when she’s dead and gone?

How far from heaven, did she fall? With broken wings, she barely crawls, no reasons left to stay alive, If there’s a God, where’s he tonight? For Caroline

Every day, a nightmare she must relive, no more love, what she’s never known no she never can give

Are we the cuts on her wrist that we cannot forgive, is ignorance bliss? Is ignorance bliss?

Will we come to the day where we find her alone and there’s nothing left of her to save? She just wanted a place and we got in the way, what a shame!

How far from heaven, did she fall? With broken wings, she barely crawls, no reasons left to stay alive, If there’s a God, where’s he tonight? For Caroline

How far from heaven, did she fall? With broken wings, she barely crawls, no reasons left to stay alive, If there’s a God, where’s he tonight? For Caroline

If there’s a God, where’s he tonight? For Caroline
For Caroline
For Caroline
For Caroline
For Caroline

    this song hits quite close to home… my first realtionship was abusive to the point where my boyfriend raped me. A female friend sexually harrased me. Even though it's been about 6 years ago i still can't completely trust people not even my boyfriend of two years by now.. I don't think he'd do anything bad but i also didn't think my first boyfriend would… Sometimes i still want to destroy my body but it's getting better slowly..

    Oh God . i really love your songs. I feel understood with some of your songs, especially because I have problems with my father, my Tourett and my oversensitivity. I thank you that you exist and that you make music. Thank you

    "she won't open her mouth untill we open our eyes" "no reasons left for her to live" "born set up to fail" "she was born all alone" "those cuts on her wrists she cannot forgive" I felt those on another level.

    My friends and I have recently started a band, called Our Darkest Hour, and we wanted some professional feedback on some of our lyrics, so here is part of one of our songs.

    Im reaching out to the broken spirit,
    Lending a hand to the woeful heart,
    When all is lost and you want to end it,
    Remember the life youre fighting for.

    Really nice song. Sucks that people tey to use this and the me too movement for there own agenda. Iike i had a friend,he literally almost killed himself because his ex-girlfriend basically ruined his life. And she had the nerve to play the "I'm a women card" to make us feel for her.no fuck that b****,excuse my language,I'm getting pissed thinking about it. I'm sorry but I've had so many instances of that,not me particularly,that I'm not going to say i don't support it,but im hesitant,hopefully u understand. But enough of that,keep putting out awesome music

    this song is so beautiful and as someone who can really relate to it I have to say that this song is pretty much flawless k
    you guys definitely deserve more recognition
    please keep up the good work!

    I listened every single song you made. Every single one was special in a certain way, and had an important message to share. Put that together with a fantastic voice, an awesome music, and you get something really special. Something that will leave a sign in the music world, even if only for thos 20K people that listen to it. That could be 20K people that saw their life become better thanks to those songs, and that is incredible. Even I thought about suicide sometimes, before a special person came into my life and gave me a reason to go on. Even without her loving me yet, that has been enough until now. And those songs help a lot too. Nearly every one of them made me cry, and that's a good sign, that means so much. I made her listen to your songs too, starting with the one I heard first, Let It Burn, while I was just having a shower and I got attracted by the title and the image of the video, saying "I know you're scared to Death, but this is not the time to hide". She loved you too, and now she listens and shares your songs in her stories on WhatsApp literally everyday, so I feel like "helping" you guys, and that makes it even more special. I'm glad of being here, and I'll be glad to buy your album asap. I wanna watch this all grow up and become big, and I'll do my best to help out. There's always something worth fighting for, or someone, I guess. So thank you for creating something Special!

    This is a great song and now all too real. About 2 months ago our friend’s sister was being beaten by her husband. She ran out of the house to escape the abuse and was struck and killed by a car, leaving behind 2 young children. At the funeral the 10 year old boy kept screaming out for his “mommy”. When they lowered the coffin into the ground, he tried to go with her. It was gut wrenching. No charges ever filed against the husband, although this was a pattern and police called to house previously. I don’t mean to be depressing, but this is a real problem. If you are in this situation please seek help before it is too late and if you know of someone in this situation please take action. Thank you Citizen Soldier for calling attention to this important issue.

    Guys sorry for your lost, even more sorry she lost the fight
    It's a really beautiful song

    I have a question?
    Can you make a song about children who are abused?
    Because I was sexually, mentally and physically abused by my father and there are lots of kids out there who are abused and no-one hears them, no-one listens, no-one helps them
    Maybe it's too late for me, because I'm not a child anymore, but there are so many children right now who need help, who need to have a grown-up to speak out for them
    Save those children, give them a right to be a whole person when they grow-up…

    I really love your music and I really think you can make such a respectfull song about such a heavy topic
    And maybe one that doesn't trigger my PTSD because I really respect for example motorhead with their song don't let daddy kiss me but I can't listen to it because it triggers my PTSD

    This is beautiful. Everyone has their own story, and this perfectly describes so many people’s story.

    These songs stopped me from doing something incredibly stupid. I like to listen to your music on full volume to just block out the voices in my head. The voices that say that I’m not good enough and that I’m worthless. It’s nice not to hear them. So I turn this music on and on full volume in headphones and just tune out the world. I can’t think. Nothing could go wrong

    Your voice and the incredible musicians behind make all your songs so honest. You tell all the unsaid words that people with depression,anxiety and abuse can't say out loud and you do make a change for them. You guys are what music represents in life. Connecting with all the ones listening to it. You are amazing ❤
