Creed - "Overcome"

I’m entitled to overcome
Completely stunned and numb
Knock me down, throw me to the floor
There’s no pain I can feel no more (to feel no more)
I’m entitled to overcome (to feel no more)
Completely stunned and numb (to feel no more)
I’m entitled to overcome
Completely stunned and numb
I’m entitled to overcome,

I may be crazy but I'm buried in your memory

(The lyrics can be taken (as they were meant to be) in many ways, spiritually, earthly, generally, and otherwise. Yet, I am listing them, partially, in relation to Scott Stapp's overall battle -- earthly, spiritually, and artistically.

Scott Stapp Talks Christ, Creed, Memoir: (Sinners Creed)

The controversy lays to rest. Scott actually does confess Christ (and the Father and the Holy Spirit) and speaks about his recent memoir release and his faith in the Lord Jesus. He also speaks of his deliverance from substance addiction. Science says this is virtually impossible, God says otherwise.

This is what drug and alcohol abuse can do to your brain. The bipolar spectrum has increased to broad a swath that is over used by lazy psychologist and psychiatrist. It could mean anything from someone who isolates and stays in bed all day to a raving maniacal killer. I am sure his brain will improve with time and I hope he is leery of taking any meds at all. Poor guy has a label now and god forbid he ever gets in trouble because the label is now part of his permanent record.

Thank you for your comment Sea Clearly!

i don't know if science has understood the link yet but i know that people with Bi-polar & Schizophrenia are extremely creatively talented because i have personally known many.

You are uniquely welcomed, Animae. Your comment about a possible link, as well as the associated creativity, was nice to see. And, I totally agree with the hope that Scott, by speaking out/openly, about his experiences will be a light for many others.
