This is how I'm feeling today....

It started off as a joke, but I think this is a great outlet for me and those who like to express themselves through music. Don't fret...I haven't watched Top Gear in a while.



Apparently, the video is clips from some television show. I found it annoying. Don't watch it. Listen and read the lyrics below.

I want something
That's purer than the water
Like we were

It's not there now
Ineloquence and anger
Are all we have

Like Saturn's rings
An icy loop around me
Too hard to hold

Lash out first
At all the things we don't like
Or understand

And it's beginning to get to me
That I know more of the stars and sea
Than I do of what's in your head
Barely touching in our cold bed

Are you beginning to get get my point
That all this fighting with aching joints
It's doing nothing but tire us out
No one knows what this fight's about

The answer phone
The lonely sound of your voice
Frozen in time

I only need
The compass that you gave me
To guide me on

And it's beginning to get to me
That I know more of the stars and sea
Than I do of what's in your head
Barely touching in our cold bed

Are you beginning to get get my point
That all this fighting with aching joints
It's doing nothing but tire us out
No one knows what this fight's about

It's so thrilling but also wrong
Don't have to prove that you are so strong
'Cause I can carry you on my back
After our enemies attack

I tried to tell you before I left
But I was screaming under my breath
You are the only thing that makes sense
Just ignore all this present tense

We need to feel breathless with love
And not collapse under its weight
I'm gasping for the air to fill
My lungs with everything I've lost

We need to feel breathless with love
And not collapse under its weight
I'm gasping for the air to fill
My lungs with everything I've lost

Some television show? Really Ginger? Really? You have never seen or heard of CSI? I hate to make this about the video but come on.. CSI! The show that started a whole new genre of Crime TV, two spinoffs, a video game series and has been in the top five for its time slot since it's inception 9 years ago.... none of this rings a bell to you?

I've heard of it, but I didn't know that's what it was.

So, what did you think of the song Chops? This is still a music blog isn't it?

I was trying to avoid the subject. First couple run throughs I'm having a hard time getting into it. It feels like a stubborn sneeze thats.. not.. quite ... there.. It wants to come out but its stuck somewhere in my sinuses. Maybe if I look into the sun it'll force it out. I promise not to give up on it right away. I was actually moved more by the lyrics alone than the song as a whole.

I get that. But isn't that the point.

Alright, it took a while. I like this now. I still dont like the "song" but I REALLY like the song.
