as I often am and I took a moment to watch the sun rising from behind snow covered mountains, turning the snow pink for a moment. I had my music on shuffle, when this song came on just as the sun turned brighter and the whole mountain was bathed in light. I noticed the lyrics...
signs for signified
And so since I’ve often tried
To run them off a cliff like Gadarene swine
And tied my thought-ropes in anchor bends
Wondering whether we were someone better then
Or maybe just better able to pretend
(and what better means to our inevitable end!)
to the good old days
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out
We used to play pretend, give each other different names
We would build a rocket ship and then we'd fly it far away
Used to dream of outer space but now they're laughing at our face
Saying, "Wake up...
or open up your eye's
So go on and sing your sad, sad song
I don't even blame you, the routine is nice
Nine to five in a suit and tie
Fear of failure a comfort zone's killed
Brace your self and give into the moment
You've got nothing to lose
So what is your excuse?
turn down the bed
Turn down these voices inside my head
Lay down with me, tell me no lies
Just hold me close, don't patronize, don't patronize me
'Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
Here in the dark, in these final...
and I couldn't help but laugh
My ear pressed against the past like a glass on a wall of a house in a photograph
My forehead no longer sweet with holy kisses worthy of your fiery lips
I was floating in a peaceful sea rescued by a sinking ship
A shadow you can't seem to recognize.
I have a thought of you for every, star in the sky
But I'm scared, I'll never cross your mind.
Yeah, I'm scared.
Will our stars ever align?
Will two hearts, beat in time?
These words you should always remember,
To you, my heart I surrender...
I doing this to myself?"
Losing my mind on a tiny error,
I nearly left the real me on the shelf.
No, no, no, no, no...
Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars!
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay.
Sometimes it's hard to follow your heart...
there was shadows and death
Got out alive but with scars I can't forget
This kid back in school, subdued and shy
An orphan and a brother and unseen by most eyes
I don't know what it was that made a piece of him die
Took a boy to the forest, slaughtered him with a scythe
balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time?
This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else...
Than can driftwood determine the ocean's waves
Brandish your ropes and your boards, and your basket-hilt swords
But what is there can punish like a conscience ignored?
Yes, my body did just as you implied
While some ghost we'll call 'I' idly watched through its eyes"
world today while we're living
Some folks say the worst of us they can
But when we are dead and in our caskets
They always slip some lilies in our hand
Won't you give me my flowers while I'm living
And let me enjoy them while I can
Pleae don't wait till I'm...
But it's never denied
Wolf am I
(no, "shadow”, I think is better because I’m not something,
more like the absence of something)
So SHADOW AM I!
The whole material world seems to me like a newspaper headline-
It explicitly demands your attention
And it may even...
Apologies to the Beatles, but I couldn't resist meddling with their lyrics to create this 21st century version of Ticket to Ride for the breakup of an online relationship. :D
Here's the video so you can listen to the music...
attention to the things that I need.
Sometimes I drink too much, sometimes I test your trust,
Sometimes I don't know why you stay with me.
I'm hard to love, hard to love,
No, I don't make it easy,
I couldn't do it if I stood where you stood.
I'm hard to love, hard to love,
SOME OF THEM WANT TO ABUSE YOU.
It is strange how things happen on EP. I like this site, but the more I stay in here the more I get to know how one can be used or abused for personal purposes of some in here. I am ok with it though if the outcome is happy for some. I love to...
"I Need Love"
When I'm alone in my room sometimes I stare at the wall
and in the back of my mind I hear my conscience call
Telling me I need a girl who's as sweet as a dove
for the first time in my life, I see I need love
There I was giggling about the...
"Though I'd lived I'd never been alive."
And you know who I am
You held my hem
As I traveled blind
Listening to the whispering in my ear
Soft but getting stronger
Telling me the only purpose of my being here
Is to stay a bit longer
And tears that still drip sore
A fragile frame aged
And when our eyes meet
I know you see
I do not want to be afraid
I do not want to die inside just to breathe in
I'm tired of feeling so numb
Relief exists I find it when
I am cut
I may seem crazy...
To emblems of kindness, and not the kindness they were emblems of
Trammels and rings, with the strength of old strings
And some hobble skirt spring, by the old problem caught
Children, sometimes I think all our thoughts are just things
And then sometimes think things are...
