I like these lines from "The Dark" by Pere Ubu-

"And I drive because I do what I want
And I drive cuz I was born to drive
And I drive cuz every ghost town rising in the dust feels like a home to me"

They remind me of summer and being on vacation. Hey, I want it to be summer and me on vacation. Uh, that's physical vacation, not mental vacation cuz I'm on always away on that. Smile

"I've had enough of readin things from uptight narrowminded paranoic hypocritics,
All i want is the truth
Just gimme some truth!
No uptight yellow belly son of tricky dicky gonna mother hubbard soft soap me with just a pocketful of hope
Money for dope!
Just gimme some truth!"
--John Lennon

"Lather was thirty years old today
And Lather showed foam from his tongue
He looked at me, eyes wide and plainly said
Is it true that I'm no longer young?
And the children call him famous
What the old men call insane
And sometimes he's so nameless
That he hardly knows what games to play
What words to say
And I should have told him no you're not old
And I should have let him go on
Smiling
Baby Wide."
--Grace Slick(Jefferson Airplane)



"People say I make strange choices, but they're not strange for me. My sickness is that I'm fascinated by human behavior, by what's underneath the surface, by the worlds inside people."

~~Johnny Depp.

"Day after day
they take some pain away
They tell me i can go
To the far side of town

Where it's pointless to get high
Cuz it's such a long way down
So I say to them
I can fly
I will scream
I will break my arm
I will do me harm
Here i am
Foot in hand
Talking to my wall
I'm not quite right at all!(am I?)
Don't set me free
I'm as helpless as can be
My libido split on me
Give me some good ol lobotomy!
Cuz I'd rather stay here
With all the madmen
Than perish with the sad men roaming free
Yes I'd rather stay here
With all the madmen
Cuz I'm quite content they're all as sane as me."
--David Bowie

Please don't shoot me for resurrecting this, but here are lyrics to the songs that just happen to be my personal theme songs...

Metallica -
"Welcome Home (Sanitarium)"



Welcome to where time stands still
no one leaves and no one will
Moon is full, never seems to change
just labeled mentally deranged
Dream the same thing every night
I see our freedom in my sight
No locked doors, No windows barred
No things to make my brain seem scarred


Sleep my friend and you will see
that dream is my reality
They keep me locked up in this cage
can't they see it's why my brain says Rage


Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, just leave me alone


Build my fear of what's out there
and cannot breathe the open air
Whisper things into my brain
assuring me that I'm insane
They think our heads are in their hands
but violent use brings violent plans
Keep him tied, it makes him well
he's getting better, can't you tell?


No more can they keep us in
Listen, damn it, we will win
They see it right, they see it well
but they think this saves us from our hell


Sanitarium, leave me be
Sanitarium, just leave me alone
Sanitarium, just leave me alone


Fear of living on
natives getting restless now
Mutiny in the air
got some death to do
Mirror stares back hard
Kill, it's such a friendly word
seems the only way
for reaching out again.



"Lost Reflections" by Crimson Glory

Locked in this attic
Been here so many years
Shanna won't set me free
She says I'm evil
But then she doesn't know
I'm not pretending, no, not me

Full moon's reflecting
A face in the mirror
Twisted and bleeding
No, you can't be real, no you're
All in my mind
Shades of insanity, you're not me
You're not me

Life in the attic
I like my rocking chair
Staring in shadows
Crouched in the corner
Waiting for something
Laughing at nothing
No one there

And on and on I wonder is there more
What is life beyond the attic door
The full moon in my eyes
Is all that's real
The mirror's lost reflection is in me

Life in the attic
Life in the attic
Life in the attic
Life in the attic

Cobwebs and dusty dreams
Sharp knives and hollow screams
Wide eyes of terror
Clawing the attic door
Can't take it anymore
You better go away!

You're lyin'
Hurry
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Who's there?
No one there
You're not me!



"Painted Skies" by Crimson Glory

When she's sad the world is lonely
Silver clouds are crying only
for the pain she feels
so deep inside
The love she thought would save her
has somehow now enslaved her
To a dream she though she wanted
to come true
Spread your wings you can fly
But the dove is never free
In painted skies that shade the color
of your dream
Only nightmares are real
Confusion conceals the only reason
for the feelings you can't hide
When she smiles the world it shimes
But the silver clouds are only there
to hide the distant storm
that's coming soon
The love she let surround her
has become the waves that drown her
in the sea of everchaning
warmth and cold
Spread your wings you can fly
But the dove is never free
In painted skies that shade the color
of your dream
Only nightmares are real
Confusion conceals the only reason
for the feelings you can't hide
You can fly
Spread your wings you can fly
But the dove is never free
In painted skies that shade the color
of your dream
Only nightmares are real
Confusion conceals the only reason
for the feelings you can't hide
When the nightmares ensue
All that you can do is paint your sky
another brighter shade of blue
Spread your wings you can glide
above the violent storms
that plague your life
You paint the picture blue or grey
Fly away



"Through Different Eyes" by Fates Warning


We're walking within a shadow
where echoes of different times resound
looking for memories to relive
in yesterdays that can't be found.

Through different eyes
we keep looking for what we lack.
Changing minds
take us away, and you can't go back.

And staring into ageless eyes
that shared secrets too dark for light
we're searching for old bonds in places
that lie forever out of sight

Through different eyes
we keep looking for what we lack.
Changing minds
take us away, and you can't go back
to different times
or ageless eyes, free from sorrow.
Changing hearts
will hide the past from tomorrow.

Through different eyes we try to find
people and places we've left behind.


Your Hidden Talent



You have the natural talent of rocking the boat, thwarting the system.
And while this may not seem big, it can be.
It's people like you who serve as the catalysts to major cultural changes.
You're just a bit behind the scenes, so no one really notices.

What's Your Hidden Talent?
