I’m Taking Someone With Me When I Go

For all the times you sat around the dinner table
For all your paintings that they put up on the wall
For all the times they’d read to you a fable
For all the times they’d come each time you’d call
For all the times you showed up in new clothing
For all the times you showed off your new tan
For all the times you went off on vacation
Driving off in your camper van
For all the times when I was left with nothing to show

I’m taking someone with me when I go (2x)

For all the things you said when you thought I couldn’t hear
For all the times you talked as if I wasn’t there
For the way your perfect smile always turns into a jeer
For all the times you thought that I just didn’t care
For every jock who walked the halls with a girl on each arm
For every line of coke that got them to his car
For every time that you drove past shouting out the window
For every wound that didn’t have a scar
For every time I’ve thought you reap the seeds you sow

I’m taking someone with me when I go (2x)

For every time you went to church in false humility
For every time you bent your knees in prayer
For every time you gloated that this was your lot in life
That it was just your fate to have it made
For each time you mocked me and thought I’d never get you back
For each time that you thought I was no one
For soon I will be remembered and you will be no more
By the time this school day is done
You can call me Dylan, Jack or you can call me Cho

I’m taking someone with me when I go (2x)

“I’m Taking Someone With Me When I Go” appears on Soundclick release, Ten New Songs (2010).

I don’t even remember which massacre had just happened, that prompted me to do some research into these massacres in general, which led to my discovery that it is overwhelmingly young men targeting young women. Oftentimes the young men they kill are trying to defend young women who they’re targeting. There’s a psychology to these mass murderers, these sociopaths. Part of it is that they feel severely ostracized and hopeless, and they want revenge. They are an extremely unfortunate product of an extremely dysfunctional society. A society that is most thoroughly exemplified by suburban America, the atomized social environment that produces these young men and boys.
