"I know you have a little life in you yet. I know you have lot of strength left." Another gem.

Hey Sean :) Kate Bush???? I hope so. I LOVE Kate Bush then and now.. I cannot hear this without crying.. oh what a saddo I know.. Oh well.. I do not care..

And every time it rains
You're here in my head
Like the sun coming out.
Your son's coming out.
Ooh, I just know that something good is gonna happen.
And I don't know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen.

Back when my State Guard unit was active and we'd practice patrols I'd always get that old 'Nam era Buffalo Springfield song stuck goin' through my head

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down.......

Hey there my crippling friend :) whatever happened to Incubus?? After ..Crow I never heard from them again.. Are they still around?? For me, they would never better the sweetness of Wish You Were Here.. reminds me of lost friends..
The world's a roller coaster. And I am not strapped in
Maybe I should hold with care. But my hands are busy in the air saying: I wish you were here..
Yr most obdt hmble srvt,

Eh...they're still around but they got all "political." -blech'

Here's one by Flogging Molly that strikes a chord in me Irish blood...

What's Left Of The Flag"

His eyes they closed
and his last breath spoke
he had seen all to be seen
a life once full
now an empty vase
wilt the blossoms
on his early grave

walk away me boys
walk away me boys
and by morning we'll be free
wipe that golden tear
from your mother dear
and raise what's left
of the flag for me

then the rosary beads
count them 1 2 3
fell apart as they hit the floor
in a garb of black
we must pay respect
to the color we were born to mourn

walk away me boys
walk away me boys
and by morning we'll be free
wipe that golden tear
from your mother dear
and raise what's left
of the flag for me

In its place grew
an angry festered wound
full of hatered and remorse
where I pick and scratch
till the blood it matched
silent rage that now fills my lungs
for there are many ways
to kill a man they say
with bayonet, axe or sword
but son a bullet fired
from a shapeless guise
just put the shell of a Thompson gun

walk away me boy
walk away me boys
and by morning we'll be free
wipe that golden tear
from your mother dear
and raise what's left
of the flag for me

from the east out to the western shore
where many men and many more will fall
but no angel flies with me tonight
though freedom reigns on all
and curse the name for which
we slaved our days
so every men chose Kingdom Come
But sure as night turns day
it's the passion play
oh my god
what have they done
with madman's rage
well they dug our graves
but the dead rise again you fools

walk away me boy
walk away me boys
and by morning we'll be free
wipe that golden tear
from your mother dear
and raise what's left
of the flag for me

How about, "This Black Box is stone around my kneck".
I ponder the meaning of that song often. Is it what I think?

Yes, this one is dating me, Im old.

Now we're standin' on the corner of a world gone home
Nobody's changed, nobody's been saved
And I'm feelin' cold and alone
I guess I'm lucky, I smile a lot
But sometimes I wish for more than I've got...
"What About me, it isn't fair
I've had enough now I want my share
Can't you see? I wanna live!
But you just take more - What about me?!
It isn't fair!
I've had enough now I want my share!
Can't you see? I wanna live!
But you just take more,
You just take more,
You just take more than you give...

What about me?

This one is close to me... (so close in fact I have some of the lyrics tattooed on my chest...)

You break my back
You won't break me
All is black
But I still see
Shut me down
Knock me to the floor
Shoot me up
**** me like a whore

Trapped under ice
Comfortably cold
I've gone as low as you can go
Feel no remorse
No sense of shame
Time's gonna wash away all pain

I made a god out of blood
Not superiority
I killed the king of deceit
Now I sleep in anarchy

Sacrifice to the cause
Turn your code into law
Compensate to validate the loss
Take a thief
Nail him to a cross

Gospel of rage
Faction of hate
Deviate from the absolute
Born of revenge
Raised on cement
Chaos created government

I made a god out of blood
Not superiority
I killed the king of deceit
Wake me up in anarchy

This one's a good motivator....at least IMHO

Atreyu: Become the Bull

come on!!!

Grab the bull by the horns the old addage goes.
nobody tells you where to go from there.
I see whats greatful in you.
Decisions have to be made.
The worse part is the hardest earned.

Back and forth the struggle consumes us all.
Trying to keep a level head.
In the most unseteling of times.
Today I'll become the bull.

There is so much at stake.
I'll stumble I'll lose my place.
Crowded in while surrounded by sin.
Destany takes its hold.
Find it or let it go.
But I choose how it will end.

Back and forth the struggle consumes us all.
Trying to keep a level head.
In the most unseteling of times.
Today I'll become the bull.

This small heart can get lonely.
I lose myself inside myself.
No one can touch you when you're outside staring in.
Remove myself from this rat race.

Back and forth the struggle consumes us all.
Trying to keep a level head.
In the most unseteling of times.
Today I'll become the bull.
Today I'll become the bull

With our Upcoming election this one is for all you Sheep who feel the need to Vote Republican or Democrat.

Will we close our eyes
Will we fall for those lies
Or will we make the conclusion
That this life's a delusion?

Will we do what we're told
'Til the day that we're sold
Or will we raise our voices
Make alternative choices?

What's up?
Our silence is death
What's up?
We shall resist the violence
What's up?
And we'll never give up
What's up?
Only death is silence

Are we victims or winners
Believers or sinners?
Do we sit in the saddle
Or are we just cattle?

Are we wretched or bold?
Are we garbage or gold?
Can we make the right call?
Can we change it at all?

What's up?
Our silence is death
What's up?
We shall resist the violence
What's up?
And we'll never give up
What's up?
Only death is silence

Acceptance is surrender
Vile and vicious slander
We don't want to be ruled
By a handful of fools

John Lennon's song Imagine will always be one of my favorites...

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one




Imagine, if the only need for our training were to keep our bodies and minds strong...

For some reason the following 2 songs keep going through my brain

It's My Life lyrics - Bon Jovi

This ain't a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud

[Chorus:]
It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow's getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain't even lucky
Got to make your own breaks

[Chorus:]
It's my life
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life

Better stand tall when they're calling you out
Don't bend, don't break, baby, don't back down

[Chorus:]
It's my life
And it's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive

[Chorus:]
It's my life
And it's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life!

Long Twin Silver Line - Bob Seger

Well the big train keeps on rolling
Rolling on down the track
And the way she’s moving buddy
I don’t believe she’s a-coming back

The fireman’s smoking a big cigar
Sipping lafite rothschild bordeaux
And the engineer’s so happy
He’s just a-letting that whistle blow

She keeps a-rolling
She keeps a-rolling
She keeps a-rolling on proud and fine
She keeps a-rolling
She keeps a-rolling
Down that long twin silver line

Well she just blazed through chicago
Nonstop to l.a.
And the way she’s steaming buddy
You better not get in her way
She’s got the finest fastest pulling twin diesels
She’s got ninety three cars in tow
She’s gonna be on time
All the way down the line
Come the rain hail sleet or snow

She keeps a-rolling
She keeps a-rolling
She keeps a-rolling on right on time
She keeps a-rolling
She keeps a-rolling
Down that long twin silver line
Rolling on down the line
And she just passed in chicago
Rolling into kansas too
Rolling into denver
Doing all she’ll do
And she hangs a big left in salt lake city

Southwest to the nevada line
Rolling into california
Right on time
Rolling on down the line

My favorite song...one that defines my struggle:

Title: The Curse
Artist: Disturbed
Album: Indestructible


http://www.mp3lyrics.
Marked for demolition, I'm
Just a time bomb ticking inside
No hope for the hopeless,
I can see the pieces all laid out in front of me

No point even asking why
Couldn't help even if you tried
Step aside or you might just
be the next contestant
To feel the Brutality!

Devastation, Obliteration
Are on to the point of Exacerbation
There's no explaining my situation,
Now why does this **** keep happening to me?

I've held on too long just to let it go now,
Will my inner strength get me through it some how
Defying the curse that has taken hold
Never surrender,
I'll never be overcome!

Too dark for forgiveness, I
Can't seem to do anything right
When I try to rebuild I see my humble shelter
Just fall to the ground again

Object of an evil eye,
No point to let anyone try
Take heed my friend lest you be torn asunder
Like all that's become of me

Decimation, Disintegration
Now beyond the point of imagination,
There's no explaining my situation
Now why does this **** keep happening to me?

I've held on too long just to let it go now,
Will my inner strength get me through it some how
Defying the curse that has taken hold
Never surrender,
I'll never be overcome!

I've held on too long just to let it go now,
Will my inner strength get me through it some how
Defying the curse that has taken hold
Never surrender,
I'll never be overcome!


I've held on too long just to let it go now,
Will my inner strength get me through it some how
Defying the curse that has taken hold
Never surrender,
I'll never be overcome!

'fraid you are both wrong this time. Best NIN bar NONE... Talk to me Trent, that is it.. right there..
You give me the anger.
You give me the nerve.
Carry out my sentence.
While I get what I deserve.

I'm just an effigy to be disgraced.
To be defaced.
Your need for me has been replaced.
And if I can't have everything well then just give me a taste.

Kinda reminded me of this...

Black then white are all i see in my infancy.
red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
lets me see.
as below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn beyond the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Heard this today and somehow it just seemed to apply to the presidential race to me for some reason, especially these lines

Line up the bastards
All I want is the truth

Hey hey now, can you fake it?
Can you make it look like we want?

Foo Fighters, Stacked Actors

Oh mirror mirror
Youre coming in clear
Im finally somewhere in between
Im impressed
What a beautiful chest
I never meant to make a big scene

Will you resign to the latest design
You look so messy when you dress up in dreams
One more for hire
Or wonderful liar?
I think its time we all should come clean

Stack dead actors
Stacked to the rafters
Line up the bastards
All I want is the truth

Hey hey now, can you fake it?
Can you make it look like we want?
Hey hey now, can you take it?
And we cry when they all die blonde?

God bless, what a sensitive mess
Yeah but things arent always what they seem
Youre teary wise
Your famous disguise
Never knowing who to believe

See through
Yeah, but what do you do?
When youre just another aging drag queen?

Stack dead actors
Stacked to the rafters
Line up the bastards
All I want is the truth

Hey hey now, can you fake it?
Can you make it look like we want?
Hey hey now, can you take it?
And we cry when they all die blonde?

I pulled out an old album the other day just to listen to this song again...

Nobody gives a damn about anybody else,
Think everyone should feel the way they feel themselves,
Rich men think that happiness is a million dollar bills,
So how come half of them OD on sleeping pills,

Eye for eye, tooth for tooth,
You all know what I mean,
What's the use of a cry for help,
If no one hears the screams,
No one hears the scream,

No voices in the sky,
Confusion blinds the eye,
Can't take it with you when you die,
No voices in the sky

The ones who dedicate the flags to make you brave,
They also consecrate the headstone on your grave,
Ritual remembrance when no one knows your name,
Don't help a single widow, learn to fight the pain,

Eye for eye, tooth for tooth,
You all know what I mean,
What's the use of a cry for help,
If no one hears the screams,
No one hears the scream,

No voices in the sky,
Confusion blinds the eye,
Can't take it with you when you die,
No voices in the sky

Politicians kissing babies for good luck,
TV preachers sell salvation for a buck,
You don't need no golden cross to tell you wrong from right,
The world's worst murderers were those who saw the light.

Eye for eye, tooth for tooth,
You all know what I mean,
What's the use of a cry for help,
If no one hears you screams,
No one hears you scream,

No voices in the sky,
Confusion blinds the eye,
Can't take it with you when you die,
No voices in the sky

No voices in the sky,
Confusion blinds the eye,
Can't take it with you when you die,
No voices in the sky

Rush from Test for Echo

Driven

Driven up and down in circles
Skidding down a road of black ice
Staring in and out storm windows
Driven to a fool's paradise
It's my turn to drive
But it's my turn to drive

Driven to the margin of error
Driven to the edge of control
Driven to the margin of terror
Driven to the edge of a deep, dark hole

Driven day and night in circles
Spinning like a whirlwind of leaves
Stealing in and out back alleys
Driven to another den of thieves

But it's my turn to drive
But it's my turn to drive

Driven in...Driven to the edge
Driven out...On the thin end of the wedge
Driven off...By things I've never seen
Driven on...By the road to somewhere I've never been

But it's my turn to drive
But it's my turn to drive

The road unwinds towards me
What was there is gone
The road unwinds before me
And I go riding on

But it's my turn to drive
But it's my turn to drive
