    Ever have a song, a particular set of lyrics jump out at you and knock the wind out of you?

    "Why must it always be stop and go?
    Where in this life can I find constant flow?
    Inconsistency on a larger scale
    Impersistence forcing me to bail out
    Look left look right look left again before you take a giant step
    All this side to side takes me out of my groove makes me feel inept
    I toe the straight line for one short time
    Forget about regrets and doubts that
    Make me stop on a dime

    I'm a fool for distraction
    Can't keep cool throughout my action
    Once in a while I find satisfaction
    I have too much care beyond my reach
    And too much love that I can't preach
    What I really need is consistency

    Everywhere that I go I don't want to be
    Cause I keep telling me "You're missing out, gotta move, gotta break on free"
    A modern-day busybacksoon
    Kind of figures cause I was born in June
    The month of moody, happy feet
    The people that no one would like to meet
    Of wandering no-clues, but why should I have to choose?

    What if what I need is just to believe
    Day in day out I find I'm searching for the key
    My head and heart are too stubborn to agree
    Where it begins must lie within me

    I've been so busy finding my way
    I'm not content with the roles I've been playing
    But something occurred to me just the other day
    I am who I am come what may"

    Us, and them
    And after all were only ordinary men.
    Me, and you.
    God only knows its noz what we would choose to do.
    Forward he cried from the rear
    And the front rank died.
    And the general sat and the lines on the map
    Moved from side to side.
    Black and blue
    And who knows which is which and who is who.
    Up and down.
    But in the end its only round and round.
    Havent you heard its a battle of words
    The poster bearer cried.
    Listen son, said the man with the gun
    Theres room for you inside.

    I mean, theyre not gunna kill ya, so if you give em a quick short,
    Sharp, shock, they wont do it again. dig it? I mean he get off
    Lightly, cos I wouldve given him a thrashing - I only hit him once!
    It was only a difference of opinion, but really...i mean good manners
    Dont cost nothing do they, eh?

    Down and out
    It cant be helped but theres a lot of it about.
    With, without.
    And wholl deny its what the fightings all about?
    Out of the way, its a busy day
    Ive got things on my mind.
    For the want of the price of tea and a slice
    The old man died.

    I want to dedicate this next song to all the DSR hatas out there:

    Carpenters - "Close to You"

    Why do birds
    Suddenly appear?
    Everytime you are near
    Just like me
    They long to be
    Close to you

    Why do stars
    Fall down from the sky?
    Everytime you walk by
    Just like me
    They long to be
    Close to you

    (*) on the day that you were born
    The angels got together and decided
    To create a dream come true
    So they sprinkled moondust in your hair
    Of gold and starlight in your eyes of blue

    (**) that is why all the girls in town
    Follow you all around
    Just like me
    They long to be
    Close to you

    Repeat (*)

    Repeat (**)

    Just like me
    They long to be
    Close to you
    Woo... close to you...

    I'm not the one who made the world what it is today
    I'm not the one who caused the problems started long ago
    But now I deal with all the consequences that troubles our times
    I carry on and never once have even questioned why
    Yeah, I'm innocent
    But the weight of the world is on my shoulders
    Yeah, I'm innocent
    But the battles started are far from over
    Yeah....

    We're not the ones who leave the homeless in the streets at night
    We're not the ones who've kept minorities and women down
    Still we grow and then the problems they become our own
    We carry on without even realizing why

    Yeah, we're innocent
    But the weight of the world is on our shoulders
    Yeah, we're innocent
    But the battles left us are far from over
    Yeah......

    We're not the ones whose pollution blackened our skies
    And ruined our streams
    We're not the ones who made the nuclear bombs
    That threaten our lives
    We're not the ones who let the children starve in faraway lands
    We're not the ones who made the streets unsafe to walk at night
    And even if we try and not become so overwhelmed
    And if we make some contribution to the plight we see
    Still our descendants will inherit our mistakes of today
    They'll suffer just the same as we and never wonder why

    Beware of The Blob, it creeps
    And leaps and glides and slides
    Across the floor
    Right through the door
    And all around the wall
    A splotch, a blotch
    Be careful of The Blob

    "Lay where you're laying
    Don't make a sound
    I know they're watching
    They're watching

    All the commotion
    the killing of pain
    Has people talking
    Talking

    You
    Your sex is on fire

    The dark of the alley
    The break of the day
    Ahead while I'm driving
    I'm driving

    Soft lips are open
    Them knuckles are pale
    Feels like you're dying
    You're dying

    You
    Your sex is on fire
    And so
    Were the words to transpire

    Hot as a fever
    Rattling bones
    I could just taste it
    Taste it

    But it's not forever
    But it's just tonight
    Oh we're still the greatest
    The greatest
    The greatest

    You
    Your sex is on fire
    You
    Your sex is on fire
    And so
    Were the words to transpire
    And You
    Your sex is on fire
    And so
    Were the words to transpire"

    I was a free man in Paris, I felt unfettered and alive
    Nobody calling me up for favors, nobody's future to decide.
    I'd go back there tomorrow but for this work I've taken on
    stokin' the star maker machinery behind the popular song.

    Joni Mitchell.

    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 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 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

    The Doors-The Severed Garden

    Wow, I'm sick of doubt
    Live in the light of certain
    South
    Cruel bindings.
    The servants have the power
    Dog-men and their mean women
    Pulling poor blankets over
    Our sailors

    I'm sick of dour faces
    Staring at me from the tv
    Tower, I want roses in
    My garden bower; dig?
    Royal babies, rubies
    Must now replace aborted
    Strangers in the mud
    These mutants, blood-meal
    For the plant that's plowed.

    They are waiting to take us into
    The severed garden
    Do you know how pale and wanton thrillful
    Comes death on a strange hour
    Unannounced, unplanned for
    Like a scaring over-friendly guest you've
    Brought to bed
    Death makes angels of us all
    And gives us wings
    Where we had shoulders
    Smooth as raven's
    Claws

    No more money, no more fancy dress
    This other kingdom seems by far the best
    Until it's other jaw reveals incest
    And loose obedience to a vegetable law.

    I will not go
    Prefer a feast of friends
    To the giant family.
