Thank you for helping me through my dark days
You helped me understand that being numb is normal
That you should not keep it in, that you should let it out
Out there for all to see because in the end nothing else really matters

You helped me feel less invisible
To deal with my loneliness
And to understand the bad decisions crawling in my skin
For I too had a problem with authority

There were times I wanted to run away
To find a place I thought I belonged
To forget myself and what I've done
As this burden was always more than I could carry

I feel as though I have lost my best friend
Who stood by me as my empire burned to the ground 
Who found me when my voice was lost in the echo 
That held my hand when I was one step closer to the edge

Because of you I gained the courage to face my enemies
I learned to embrace them and dance with my demons
And that the only one who can save me is me
But everything feels so heavy now

Just hearing your voice would put the pain in reverse
Which is why I am ashamed that the world couldn't see the signs 
Or help you the way you helped others like me 
You were an entertainer but also my friend, my savior
Rest in peace dear Chester
