Like you're hanging by a thread but you gotta survive,
'Cause you gotta survive”
While somewhat jarring, these lyrics are the reality that many people experience in their daily lives. The authenticity of this piece captivated the internet and generated major support for the emerging artist. Em Beihold has opened up the doors for her audience to feel seen and accepted.
