you will miss me when i burn... [Sep. 27th, 2001|10:45 pm]

When you have no one,
no one can hurt you

In the corners there is light
that is good for you
and behind you, I have warned you,
there are awful things

Will you miss me
when I burn, and will you eye me
with a longing
it is longing that I feel
to be missed for, to be real

When you have no one,
no one can hurt you

Will you miss me
when I burn,
and will you close
the others' eyes, it would be
such a favor
if you would blind them

There is absence, there is lack
there are wolves here
abound
You will miss me
when I turn
around

When you have no one,
no one can hurt you
when you have no one,
no one can hurt you

Re:

hope you didn't think i wrote that (for i am not that poetic), tis the work of the genius mind of will oldham, didn't mean to pass it off as my own. such an angry, yet heart-achingly beautiful piece of poetry (and music).

no, i'm not okay, but the events of tonight just made everything so much worse. having said that, i've gone through these times before, i can cope and god knows it's better than just ambling by.

but thanks for your concern, mr. ad usque. master pablo will appreciate your personality quirks and sensitive (yet hard-working) nature.

tomorrow it is either a five-a-side soccer match or wasting my mind with alcohol (again). oh, the choice ...

no news besides.

who do i think orchestrated the cuban revolution? not you, anyway. possibly the american government (certainly not castro and his roving gang of hillbillies) and maybe sean lemass (because he did so much that we never knew about). as for who orchestrated the viet cong, the question should be what; and the answer would be stupidity.

That is possibly my favorite song ever. Ever. It's funny you came to comment on my page about the worm sex, because I came to your page a while ago, found that post, and stole it for my own use. (How did you find me?)
And that "personality test" below is pure crap. Insipid.

Yes, your cunning powers of reasoning (eventually) led you to the correct conclusion ... y'see I stopped all this over a year ago, then you commented, so when I started again (and I'm not even sure if it's going to be a regular thing) I got all involved in spending hours and hours going through old livejournal comments etc etc. and I take no responsibility for taking that personality test ... em, some other bigger kid told me to do it.

Re: wut song is that?

It's by a guy called Will Oldham, who goes under various different names (such as Palace, Palace Brothers, Palace Music, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, and sometimes just Will Oldham). This particular song is under Palace Brothers, and you can find it on the 'Palace Brothers' album. He's really very very good, you should check out some of his stuff! Although I'm not too sure what sort of music you like, so ... you might be dissapointed.
