Lazarus Wilde Releases "Swallow & The Pills"

Posted on March 16th, 2017

“This song is unlike most suicide awareness songs. I wanted it to really speak out in the most honest way possible to let those who are in need of help or attention that with just little help we can save many lives that are struggling with depression, anxiety, online bullying, and harassment. We live in an era now where we broadcast the violence that is happening in the world right now and we are not paying attention to the signs and the people that are being affected by what’s happening just around the corner. Our neighbors, our friends, our loved ones. It just takes a minute of your time to really listen to those around you and truly see what’s happening just at arms length.
This video is not intended to offend but to bring awareness of a very serious and on going issue.” - LW
