    Give what you can.

    My heart is crushed but I'll find solace in his words for the rest of my life.

    When it's all gone
    Something carries on
    And it's not morbid at all
    Just when nature's had enough of you

    When my blood stops
    Someone else's will have not
    When my head rolls off
    Someone else's will turn
    And while I'm alive
    I'll make tiny changes to earth

    So young, really sad things went this way. Wish he could have gotten the help he needed.

    who told you this room exists?

    The prophecy he created with Floating In The Forth is heartbreaking. I wonder how often that song and thought continued to haunt him.

    It seems Kevin Devine confirmed that the next Devinyl split was meant to be with Scott/Frightened Rabbit after Petal got delayed. I wonder if they will release it posthumously. I wonder if Scott considered that thought beforehand.

    I wish the best for his friends and family.

    I was born in a swamp, born with no clothes on

    This is the first time I ever cried over losing an artist! I haven't posted in about a year but this is hitting me hard Pedestrian Verse was my #1 album that year, Scotts been the singer of many of my fantasy supergroups & his music has helped me through a lot of rough times. I can't believe this. I'm devastated...
