    "Innocence will teach you what it feels like to be used" 17 Again by the Eurythmics/Annie Lennox

    great song from a surprisingly good album (surprising in that i'm not a big fan)..and it was used in my fave will and grace episode

    we stoop so low - to reach so high.....u2

    i was just a child then - now i'm only a man....pink floyd

    think about the way things turned out going round and round inside my head

    think about a girl who might have loved me but she never ever said....the irony

    I know it's hard to keep an open heart
    When even friends seem out to harm you....guns 'n' roses

    These tears I've cried.
    I've cried 1000 oceans.
    And if it seems I'm floating
    in the darkness...
    Well, I can't believe that I would keep,
    keep you from flying.
    So I will cry 1000 more
    if that's what it takes to
    sail you home,
    sail you home,
    sail you home....tori amos

    Here's a couple lines from a song called "Mr. Sunshine" from Lori McKenna - the song describes how I felt as a JW elder to a tee:

    Mr. Sunshine lyrics

    And everyone there depends on their faith and i can't breathe
    I'm as afraid of the things that i'd say as i am the things inside me

    Skeeter - got your PM!! I'm more of a Manics fan than MASH. I once spent a whole afternoon debating the truth of that line with a colleague - very therapeutic

    Another couple of my faves:

    "The beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair" - Relient k, Be my Escape.

    "I would give you all of my dreams if you'd help me find a door that doesn't lead me back again. Take me away" - Genesis, Chamber of 32 doors from 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway'

    There are several lines from this song, I'll italicize the parts I'm especially stoked on.

    Ministry Lyrics

    Psalm 69 Lyrics

    congregation, please be seated and open your prayer
    guides to
    the book
    of revelations, psalm 69

    And now it's time for us
    to us to give a little love back to God

    drinking the blood of jesus
    drinking it right from his veins
    learning to swim in the ocean
    learning to prowl in his name

    the body of christ looked unto me
    a preacher with cock in his hand
    he wants you to suck on the holy ghost
    and swallow the sins of man

    psalm 69

    the invisible piss of the holy ghost
    comes down like acid rain
    they're making a profit off terminal guilt
    the scavengers go on parade

    the promise of life and eternity
    is used just like the sword
    he'll filled you up with his devil's cock
    and he'll come in the name of the lord

    the way to succeed and the way to suck eggs
    stop it!

    Good God we have to post past bigwilly's blood sucking jesus tune!!!!

    The end of October

    the sleepy brown woods

    seem to nod with their heads

    for the winter. Yellow and grey

    paints the sad skay today

    and I wonder when your coming home.

    oompa..... dan fogleberg

    My favourite Bob Dylan song

    To Ramona

    Ramona, come closer,
    Shut softly your watery eyes.
    The pangs of your sadness
    Shall pass as your senses will rise.
    The flowers of the city
    Though breathlike, get deathlike at times.
    And there's no use in tryin'
    T' deal with the dyin',
    Though I cannot explain that in lines.

    Your cracked country lips,
    I still wish to kiss,
    As to be under the strength of your skin.
    Your magnetic movements
    Still capture the minutes I'm in.
    But it grieves my heart, love,
    To see you tryin' to be a part of
    A world that just don't exist.
    It's all just a dream, babe,
    A vacuum, a scheme, babe,
    That sucks you into feelin' like this.

    I can see that your head
    Has been twisted and fed
    By worthless foam from the mouth.
    I can tell you are torn
    Between stayin' and returnin'
    On back to the South.
    You've been fooled into thinking
    That the finishin' end is at hand.
    Yet there's no one to beat you,
    No one t' defeat you,
    'Cept the thoughts of yourself feeling bad.

    I've heard you say many times
    That you're better 'n no one
    And no one is better 'n you.
    If you really believe that,
    You know you got
    Nothing to win and nothing to lose.
    From fixtures and forces and friends,
    Your sorrow does stem,
    That hype you and type you,
    Making you feel
    That you must be exactly like them.

    I'd forever talk to you,
    But soon my words,
    They would turn into a meaningless ring.
    For deep in my heart
    I know there is no help I can bring.
    Everything passes,
    Everything changes,
    Just do what you think you should do.
    And someday maybe,
    Who knows, baby,
    I'll come and be cryin' to you.

    I see people around here have excellent taste in music!

    My favorite line in a song?

    "Well I have loved some ladies, and I have loved Jim Beam. But they both tried to kill me back in 1973."Family tradition - Hank Williams Jr.

    When ever I hear this line, it makes me giggle.



    Illusion never changed into something real. Natalie Ambrulia(sp?)
