A beautiful line.

"But you should never be embarrassed by your trouble with living, because it's the ones with the sorest throats, Laura, Who have done the most singing." -Conor Oberst

I still love Bright Eyes.

"Rabbit Hole"
By Bright Eyes

I heard you fell into a rabbit hole,
covered yourself up in snow.
Baby, tell me where'd you go for days and days?
Did they make you stay up all night?
Did they paint your face that pasty white?
You're thirsty, but your appetite is chased away.

The sun turns us to stone.
It's a cloudy day, but we still can't go
up and out that cellar door.
Till we see the moon, we're invisible.

No one ever takes the garbage out.
The neighbor kid gets dared to touch the house.
He runs back only to announce, "there's no one home."
Cause we paint the foil with the flame,
smell of soda, taste butane
for every fear that can't be named to calm you down.

Your heart starts skipping steps.
So you're farther gone
than you might expect.
If your thoughts should turn to death,
Gotta stomp them out like a cigarette.

"Big Wave" by Jenny and Johnny

Living your life in the gray
Is the new American way
We're spending what we haven't made
And we save our money in good faith
And we work hard for our living wage
But still the bank's gotta break

'Cause a dream's a lie
And a snake it bit you
When you were awake
And the books are fried
You are bankrupted because
All the loans you take

Big wave, big wave, big wave
It's gonna hit you with a big wave

I can't sleep these days
And my blues they won't go away
So there are these little pills I've been taking
And my doctor she says that they're safe
But I've been sleepwalking down to the lake

And waking up in the water

And the feeling's alright
But the snake it bit me
When I wasn't awake
And the scripts they lie
I have been poisoned from all the things I take


Big wave, big wave, big wave
It's gonna hit me with a big wave
Big wave, big wave, big wave
It's gonna hit you with a big wave

I know you feel deprived (you don't trust me)
Our love is still alive (you never touch me)
Still, it's just that I don't feel like it much these days

And our love's a lie
'Cause a snake it visits me
When you are away
And the dreams don't lie
I've been corrupted 'cause
All the lovers I take

Big wave, big wave, big wave
You're gonna hit me with a big wave
Big wave, big wave, big wave
It's gonna hit you with a big wave

Copying all the peoplez.

Stole the link for a survey meant to shoe me what faiths my beliefs fall in line with from Talbot. It was interesting, and I had a real hard time answering some of the questions.

Your Top 3 Faith Match Profiles Are:
1. Unitarian Universalism (100%)
2. Secular Humanism (96%)
3. Neo-Pagan (85%)

Neo-pagan? What? Huh?

"Napoleon" by Ani DiFranco

They told you your music could reach millions,
that the choice was up to you.
You told me they always pay for lunch,
and they believe in what I do.

And I wonder if you'll miss your old friends
once you've proven what you're worth?
And I wonder, when you're a big star,
will you miss the earth?


And I know you always, always want more.
I know you'll never, never be done.


Because everyone is a fucking Napoleon.

And the next time that I saw you
you were larger than life
yeah, you came, and you conquered,
you were doing all right.


You had an army of suits behind you
and all you had to be was willing.
And I said, "I still make a pretty good living, but
you must make a killing, a killing."

And I hope that you are happy.
I hope that at least you are having fun.

Oh, but everyone is a fucking Napoleon.
Well, everyone is a fucking Napoleon.

You say, "So that's the way it's gonna be,
so that's what this is all about?"
But I think that's the way it always was,
you just chose not to notice until now.

Oh now that, now that there's a problem,
you call me up to confide,
and you go on for over an hour
about each one that took you for a ride.

And I guess that you dialed my number
because you thought for sure that I'd agree.
But I said, "Baby, you know I still love you,
but how dare you complain to me?"


Oh, but everyone is a fucking Napoleon.
Everyone is a fucking Napoleon.
Everyone is a fucking Napoleon.

"More Adventurous," by Rilo Kiley

And it's only doubts that we're counting
On fingers broken long ago
I read with every broken heart we should become
More adventurous

And if you banish me from your profits,
And if I get banished from the kingdom up above,
I'd sacrifice money and heaven all for love.
Let me be loved, let me be loved


And if my hands stop working you can call me lazy
And if I get pregnant, I guess I'll just have the baby
Let it be loved, let me be loved

I've been trying to nod my head,
but it's like I've got a broken neck
Wanting to say, "I will," as my last testament
For me to be saved and you to be brave
We don't have to walk down that aisle
'Cause if marriage ain't enough,
Well, at least we'll be loved.

I felt the wind on my cheek coming down from the east
And thought about how we are all as numerous as leaves on trees
And maybe ours is the cause of all mankind
Give love to make more, try to stay alive

I've been trying to nod my head,
but it's like I've got a broken neck
Wanting to say, "I will," as my last testament
For you to be saved and me to be brave
We don't have to walk down that aisle
'Cause if marriage ain't enough,
Well at least we'll be loved.




(beeteedubbs, this is exactly how I feel.)
