I never meant to throw your computer out the window
Now through it I can see one final walk away
And now I'm fuc ked I feel that everythings just colours
And all I see is all that means to me

Not Perfect, by Tim Minchin (I think the last few lines are especially appropriate for this site)

This is my earth
And I live in it
It's one third dirt and two thirds water
And it rotates and revolves through space
At rather an impressive pace
And never even messes up my hair.
And here's the really weird thing
The force created by its spin
Is the force that stops the chaos flooding in.
This is my earth and it's fine.
It's where I spend the vast majority of my time.
It's not perfect, but it's mine.
It's not perfect...

This is my country
And I live in it.
It's pretty big and nice to walk on.
And the bloke who runs my country
Has built a demagoguery
And taught us to be fearful and boring.
And the weirdest thing is that he is
Conservative of politics
But really rather radical of eyebrows.
This is my country and it's fine.
It's where I spend the vast majority of my time.
It's not perfect, but it's mine.
It's not perfect...

This is my house
And I live in it
It's made of cracks and photographs.
We rent off a guy, who bought it from a guy,
Who bought it from a guy, whose granddad left it to him.
And the weirdest thing is that this house
Has locks to keep the baddies out
But they're mostly used to lock ourselves in.
This is my house and it's fine.
It's where I spend the vast majority of my time.
It's not perfect, but it's mine.
It's not perfect, but it's mine.

This is my body
And I live in it.
It's twenty-nine and twelve months old.
It's changed a lot since it was new.
It's done stuff it wasn't built to do.
I often try to fill it up with alcohol.
And the weirdest thing about it is
I spend so much time hating it
But it never says a bad word about me.
This is my body and it's fine.
It's where I spend the vast majority of my time.
It's not perfect, but it's mine.
It's not perfect...

This is my brain
And I live in it.
It's made of love and bad song lyrics.
It's tucked away behind my eyes
Where all my screwed up thoughts can hide
'Cause god forbid I hurt somebody.
And the weirdest thing about a mind
Is that every answer that you find
Is the basis for a brand new cliche.
This is my brain and it's fine.
It's where I spend the vast majority of my time.
It's not perfect, but it's mine.
It's not perfect, but it's mine.
It's not perfect, not quite sure I worked out how to work it.
It's not perfect, but it's mine.

Through early morning fog I see
Visions of the things to be
The pains that are withheld for me
I realize and I can see
That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
I can take or leave it if I please
That game of life is hard to play
I'm gonna lose it anyway
The losing card of some delay
So this is all I have to say
That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
I can take or leave it if I please
The sword of time will pierce our skin
It doesn't hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in
The pain grows stronger, watch it burn
That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please
A brave man once requested me
To answer questions that are key
Is it…*link removed*

Alice in Chains

We Die Young"
 

Scary's on the wall
Scary's on his way

Watch where you spit
I'd advise you wait until it's over
Then you got hit
And you shoulda known better

And we die young
Faster we run

Down, down, down you're rollin'
Watch the blood float in the muddy sewer
Take another hit
And bury your brother

And we die young
Faster we run

Scary's on the wall
Scary's on his way

Another alley trip
Bullet seek the place to bend you over
Then you got hit
And you shoulda known better
Faster we run
And we die young"

Rip, CC

I'm.going to post the lyrics of this song in their entirety. 

I might have done this already..but this struck a chord yet again. Just like it did over 30 years ago.

Me all over.

 

Toyah

Creepy Room

 

Are you sitting comfortably?
Then we'll begin
This is the Mad Hatter's tea party
The telephones keep ringing
Driving me insane
Radio waves and monosodium glutamates
Poison me

Alcohol caresses my veins
Tobacco makes me sick again
My head's confused
It explodes into mental mayhem
I get these wild, wild moods
I get obsessed
Everything seems so very pointless
What is it all aiming for?
A world without wars would never exist
A world without wars is a dream for realists

Education for what?
It's just to brainwash kids
Someone must have designed this
I feel that it's all pre-planned
I don't want my kids to live in fear of man
We all explored and exploited
But the world keeps turning
Keeps turning

I've been a naughty, naughty girl
I've spoken out loud against the world
They're sending me to the creepy room
For some chemically induced fear
Because my mind's out of tune
I need some "cool discomfort"

I scare the monster in the creepy room -
He doesn't like my eyes
He says they look like wounds -
The monster screams!
But monster, don't you know?
No-one can hear you scream
In the creepy room

I can swallow it down
Keep it all inside
I define myself
By how well I hide
Feel it coming apart
Well, at least I tried

I can win this war
By knowing not to fight
If I take it all back
Someway, somehow
If I knew back then
What I know right now

Me, I'm not

The Fall

Living too Late

 

Sometimes life is like a new bar
Plastic seats, be er below par
Food with no taste, music grates
I'm living too late

Once talking was my favourite while
But now I know a conversation's end
Before it's done
Maybe I'm living too long

Alone with the owls howling "pain, pain, pain"
Alone with the owls howling "pain"
Alone with the owls howling "pain, pain, pain"
You don’t have to live this way

While I lived was I a stray black dog
While I lived was I a stray black dog
While I lived was I anything at all
Did I have to live this way  


I stood beside the ocean not a single wave
Beside the ocean not a single wave 
Beside the ocean not a single wave 
Not a single thing left to say

With the owl howling “pain, pain, pain”
With the ocean howling the same
With my life howling the same
Did I have to live this way

out of the ruins
blood grown heavy from his past
his wings stripped by thunder
but those storms keep coming back
singing birds in sickness
sing the same blues songs
when they fell out of the emptiness
they must have brought along
space's loneliness
space's loneliness
gotten so good at hiding it
even he does not admit it
that glittering flash in his eyes
makes it look like he might be alright
if the blues are you hunter
then you will come face to face
with that darkness and desolation
and the endless depression
but you are not helpless
and you are not helpless
try to beat it
try to beat it
and live through space's loneliness
and live through space's loneliness
you are not helpless
you are not helpless
I'll help you to try to beat it

tonight i am gambling with my sentiment 
tonight i am gambling with my repentance 
deny i am losing in a crowded room 
to a gambler in a crown of thorns 
tonight i am down to my soul
tonight i am gambling with my sentiment 
tongiht i am gambling with my salvation 
deny i am losing in a crowded room 
to a gambler in a crown of thorns 
tonight i am damned to my soul

I don't know much about your life beyond these walls,
The fleeting sense of love within these god forsaken halls.
And you can hear it in his voice in every call.
This girl who's slept a hundred years has something after all.

And though I know,
Since you've awakened her again,
She depends on you,
She depends on you,

She'll go alone.
And never speak of this again.
We depend on you.
We depend on you.
We depend... I'll depend...

On you.

Take a walk to the new town, take a look around
Pretty road names pass us by, a foundation sound
They paint their walls and ceilings white to feel clean inside
Ten square miles so synchronized I could have cried

And the bodies go by barely half awake
Awaiting things to come again, nice things to come
It's such a nice environment I'm in
I wonder why I'm here and the bodies go by barely half awake

All but the few ever notice anything at all, Oh dear
All but the few ever notice anything at all

I've had Monty Python's "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" stuck in my head for the past couple of days. I think this is my new anthem:

words and music by Eric Idle

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

And always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the right side of life...
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the bright side of life...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing!)
Always look on the right side of life...

How I'm feeling when dealing with the suicide of Chester Bennington from Linkin Park, one of my favorite bands of all time. He dealt with some horrible things in his life, battled drugs/alcohol addiction & depression as a result. He opened up about it many times in the past & got cleaned up, in spite of what happened. With that said, this song almost perfectly expresses the situation of the family, friends, bandmates & millions of fans he left behind...

 

Song: Better Place

Arist: Puddle of Mudd

It's always so damn hard to say goodbye
To the ones that you love the most
It's just never that easy
My cousins fading fast
I can't believe that I didn't see it coming
I didn't see it coming down

I should've been there to pick you up
I could've been there to help you out
When you were going down
I should've been there to pick you up
I could've been there to help you out
But you were gone

I never wanna say goodbye
I never wanna say goodbye
I know you're in a better place
But I can't get you out of my mind

I never wanna say goodbye
I never wanna say goodbye
I know you're in a better place
Why'd you say goodbye?

The pictures in my head
Will never be enough to replace
All the good times we had together, man
I miss you every day, I miss you every day
And I wake up in a cold, cold sweat, yeah

The picture's in my head
Will never be enough to replace
All the good times we had together, man

I should've been there to pick you up
I could've been there to help you out
But you were gone

I never wanna say goodbye
I never wanna say goodbye
I know you're in a better place
But I can't get you out of my mind

I never wanna say goodbye
I never wanna say goodbye
I know you're in a better place
Why'd you say goodbye?

And I know you tried
(Well, I could've been there to help you out)
I know you cried
(I should've been there to pick you up)
When you were falling down
I never got a chance to say
I never wanna say goodbye

I never wanna say goodbye
I never wanna say goodbye
I know you're in a better place
But I can't get you out of my mind

I never wanna say goodbye
I never wanna say goodbye
I know you're in a better place
Why'd you say goodbye?

I know you're in a better place
But I can't get you out of my mind
I know you're in a better place
But I can't get you out of my mind

I hurt myself today 
To see if I still feel 
I focus on the pain 
The only thing that's real 
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting 
Try to xxxx it all away 
But I remember everything
What have I become 
My sweetest friend 
Everyone I know goes away 
In the end 
And you could have it all 
My empire of dirt 
I will let you down 
I will make you hurt
I wear this crown of thorns 
Upon my liar's chair 
Full of broken thoughts 
I cannot repair 
Beneath the stains of time 
The feelings disappear 
You are someone else 
I am still right here

As a ghost, the following song has always held deep meaning for me.  And the singer's voice has always sounded so nice to me.  This is a song I've put in headphones on repeat while I've been in a very dark place on more times than I can remember.

From Autumn to Ashes - Autumn's Monologue 

Oh why can't I be what you need? 
A new improved version of me. 
But I'm nothing so good 
no, I'm nothing... 
just bones, a lonely ghost burning down songs
of violence, of love, and of sorrow. 
I beg for just one more tomorrow! 
Where you'd hold me down, fold me in 
deep deep deep in the heart of your sins.

Is it June or late September
Is it 1993
Could you help me to remember
Is this how I'm supposed to be

Sometimes I think the pain blows my mind

Did you ever get those cigarettes
And did you get anything for me
Will you help me to remember
When I fall into the sea

Sometimes I think the pain blows my mind

Do or die, you'll never make me
Because the world will never take my heart
Go and try, you'll never break me
We want it all, we wanna play this part
I won't explain or say I'm sorry
I'm unashamed, I'm gonna show my scars
Give a cheer for all the broken
Listen here, because it's who we are

Boston - "Peace of Mind"

 

Now if you're feelin' kinda low 'bout the dues you've been paying
Future's coming much too slow
And you want to run but somehow you just keep on stayin'
Can't decide on which way to go
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind, yeah, whoa

Now you're climbin' to the top of the company ladder
Hope it doesn't take too long
Can'tcha you see there'll come a day when it won't matter?
Come a day when you'll be gone, whoa

I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind

Take a look ahead, take a look ahead, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Now everybody's got advice they just keep on givin'
Doesn't mean too much to me
Lots of people out to make-believe they're livin'
Can't decide who they should be, whoa

I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind

Take a look ahead, take a look ahead, look ahead
