More emo! REWARD release “Hooked” video

Philadelphia emo rock / post hardcore band REWARD has released a new video for their track “Hooked”, off their new EP “Painted Desperation”, released via Mutant League Records. Check out the official word about the record and watch the video below.

“On the surface, it’s really just about my cousin who has down syndrome. I have never once seen him upset or unhappy for more than maybe three seconds at a time. He wakes up and is simply excited to live and be alive. He thoroughly enjoys every moment and that is amazing and inspiring to me. So in this song I wanted to honor his mind and express my mourning for his window of opportunity, but to juxtapose it with how much I love and admire him for cherishing every day and every moment.” / singer Rob Blackwell

Lyrics:

My empty heart is lost for you to find
This haunting loneliness in my eyes
My dull and distraught, vulnerable thoughts
Have held me captive all these years
So go ahead, cut me open, take a look inside
I always need what I can’t have

I find your eyes and never get enough
Painting desperation, fill my hollow mind (I don’t want this, I need it)

Take an axe to my back; release the tension from my spine
Watch my body unwind upon the floor before your eyes
Gasping for life, the frigid air cuts my gums like a knife
But it’s alright — I’ll just lay here and wait to die

I find your eyes and never get enough
Painting desperation, fill my hollow mind (I don’t want this, I need it)
There’s you, there’s nothing I can do
It’s where I go to hide (I don’t want this, I need it)

It’s you

It’s you and I
There’s nothing else keeping me alive
