The Frames, Dream Awake

There's a point in all your dreaming,
to every time mean has just deserves,
and every time I caught you leaving..

i had to dream awake..

and for every time I came home screaming,
and got sent away, with no warmin at all,

I had to dream awake..

there's a calling, a calling, a calling,,
to everyone, who lost something.

and who had to dream awake.

there's a fight were not conending,
where we have to the words get mixed,
and the point is lost
where we have to dream awake.

so take us under now..
take us over now..

there's a warning, a warming, a warning,
to everyone, who found something..


Heard this one watching the excellent "Life" a few weeks ago.

LC - Butterflies


-- Fall Out Boy, Golden

How cruel is the golden rule,
When the lives we lived are only golden plated.
And I knew that the lights of the city were too heavy for me,
Though I carried carats for everyone to see.
And I saw god cry in the reflection of my enemies.
And all the lovers with no time for me.
And all of the mothers raise their babies to stay away from me.

Tongues on the sockets of electric dreams,
Where the sewage of youth drowned the spark of my teens.
And I knew that the lights of the city were too heavy for me,
(Too heavy for me.)
Though I carried carats for everyone to see.
(Everyone to see.)
And I saw god cry in the reflection of my enemies.
And all the lovers with no time for me.
And all of the mothers raise their babies to stay away from me,
And pray they don’t grow up to be...

Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

Life is eternal, and love is immortal, and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.

Stray Cat in Tyre


(no subject)

The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole.

Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile.

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else.
-- Theodore Roosevelt

Ghosts of you and me

Don't worry, he's crazy, so he doesn't have to have any particular reasons for being up on a telephone pole.

Inconvenience is adventure wrongly considered.

Not gods, just men.

"I read some book about brains. My roommate had it and she kept waving it around. It was like, how five thousand years ago the lobes of the brain fused and before that people thought when the right lobe of the brain said anything it was the voice of some god telling them what to do. It's just brains."
-Sam, American Gods

"I bet it's like space aliens. These days, people see space aliens. Back then they saw gods. Maybe the space aliens come from the right side of the brain."
"I don't think the gods ever gave rectal probes. And they didn't mutilate the cattle themselves. They got people to do it for them."
-Sam and Shadow

The locals were implacable. "When they see the corpses of their friends, they'll know we don't want them here."

"You're fucked up Mister, but you're cool."

"He's a jerk. I'm proud of my Indian blood. It helps pay my college tuition."

Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

There used to be a real me, but I had it surgically removed.

Common sense is just a collection of prejudices claimed by the age of 18.

I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.
I do not think that they will sing to me.

Every ending is a new beginning.
Your lucky number is none.
Your lucky color is dead.

People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.
