Voor Alles Bang Geweest

Voor Alles Bang Geweest

For too many people in a lift or regional bus
Or just a room
For the wreath of galaxies, veils, mists and their black holes

For my own brain, some insects
Women, their moods and votes
For boiling water, membranes, scissors, breathing

For most trivialities
Big and bigger
For the discontent of my parents
Then from pulpits in barracks
People threatened with hell and narrow gates

For some sounds
And the living with those sounds
For emails and sms
For envelopes on my table

Been afraid of everything
Always been afraid of everything
Been afraid of everything
Always been afraid of everything

For dreams and demons
For exclusion and almost all unknowns
For the elements
For people and country
For big crowds, for the doorbell and for punishment

For patented madmen and some family members
School, and everything that had to come after it
For the sight that I offer and do not want to offer
For the distress of innate shame

Been afraid of everything
Always been afraid of everything
Been afraid of everything
Always been afraid of everything

For the truth
Or rather the dynamics of hard facts
For the future, the past
The bouncing here and now
For types that play with knives
For animals although not the most
For people who say they are free from all fears

For thoughts
Other people’s or own
Spool, height, blankets, depth
Everything that escapes language
Suspicions of anything
For God still
For my passion
Always been afraid of everything
Not without obligation but with good reason

Always convinced for everything, high in the breath
Purely frightened in the doctrine to the marrow
Off to the stupid and futile
With blinkers and dog loyalty
Always been afraid of everything

Been afraid of everything
Always been afraid of everything
Been afraid of everything
Always been afraid of everything

For both the big handle
Last but not least, ragged edges
Smallest particles, neutrons, electrons
Everything bigger than the receding Self

For atmospheres and whistling
And the security, also at home
To lose everything in an instant
For buildings without windows
Before dying, all dead
Perhaps a little less for death

For this observation
For establish
For children who ask questions
But even more for those questions

Been afraid of everything
Always been afraid of everything
Been afraid of everything
Always been afraid of everything

But not for you
Not for you

Voor Alles Bang Geweest‘ ~Wende-lyrics by Joost Zwagerman~

As you can see it’s not in English, though I’ve translated the lyrics, albeit probably badly….I take no responsibility in the accuracy, or inaccuracy as the case may be, for the translation by Google translate. We all know how it can turn words into meaning anything but what intended, but I think you’ll get the idea. Thanks to Vrir for sharing this with me. ♥♥♥

Bones

Bones

Time is shaking
Feel it in my bones
Take me home
Eyes are waking
Time to let it go
It’s long, long gone

Scars keep running through
But all that’s left is you

You restless heart
You came this far
Why did you lose?
You restless heart
You’re in the dark
Why did you lose?

Lights are fading
Creeping in my lungs
It’s all undone
Glass is breaking
Turning into stone
These cold, cold bones

Scars keep running through
But all that’s left is you

You restless heart
You came this far
Why did you lose?
You restless heart
You’re in the dark
Why did you lose?

You restless heart
You came this far
Why did you lose?
You restless heart
You’re in the dark
Why did you lose?

Bones‘ ~Dotan~

I have no idea what it is about Giant’s Causeway at Grauland, but I always seem drawn back there for some reason. Maybe it’s the shapes and lines of the rocks, or the big horizon reminiscent of my prairie home. I’m not sure why I like it so much, but I always find it inspiring……so again I come back to sit in solitude and ponder life for awhile……..and capture a moment in time when all is right in my world.

Music’s Too Sad Without You

Music's Too Sad Without You

I know what you were feeling
When you played me that song
Gave every word meaning
You showed me a place we belonged

And we laughed and we danced and we never looked back
Nothing would get in our way
And you showed me the meaning of love and romance
With every song that you played

The music’s too sad without you
The silence is all I can listen to now
I can’t sing along to the songs like I used to
The music’s too sad when you’re not around, ooh

I remember that feeling (the songs that you played)
You felt like home
So why am I leaving? (Memories made)
Leaving you all alone

‘Cause we laughed and we danced and we never looked back
Nothing would get in our way
And you showed me the meaning of love and romance
I miss the song that you played

Music’s too sad without you
The silence is all I can listen to now
I can’t sing along to the songs like I used to
The music’s too sad when you’re not around

So I listen to the wind in the trees
The sound of the air
Your voice is lost in the breeze
When you’re not there
(The songs that you played)

The music’s too sad without you (the songs that you played)
The music’s too sad without you (the songs that you played)
Oooh
(The songs that you played)
The music’s too sad
So sad, without you (the songs that you played)

Music’s Too Sad Without You‘ ~Kylie Minogue & Jack Savoretti~

Keeping Me Alive

Keeping Me Alive

You tried to hold me down, so I became a soldier
Built up all these walls, and now I’m climbing over
Those nasty bees are temping me, oh, lord
But I ain’t going back
You take me for a fool, that doesn’t make me foolish
Told me I was wrong, passion made you ruthless
Manipulate, it’s just too late, oh, lord
‘Cause I ain’t going back no more

You’re fueling up the flames
Gonna show you what I’m made of

Breaking every chain that you put on me
You thought I wouldn’t change, but I grew on ya
‘Cause I will never be what you wanted
This fire, this fire, this fire is keeping me alive
Making me believe I couldn’t do without ya
Make it hard to leave, you think it’s all about ya
You know I’ll never be what you wanted
This fire, this fire, this fire

I tried to get this weight off of my shoulders
Built up all my strength, I’m finally taking over
Complicate, I don’t appreciate, oh lord
‘Cause I ain’t going back no more

You’re fueling up the flames
Gonna show you what I’m made of

Breaking every chain that you put on me
You thought I wouldn’t change, but I grew on ya
‘Cause I will never be what you wanted
This fire, this fire, this fire is keeping me alive
Making me believe I couldn’t do without ya
Make it hard to leave, you think it’s all about ya
You know I’ll never be what you wanted
This fire, this fire, this fire is keeping me alive
Keeping me alive
Keeping me alive
This fire, this fire, this fire is keeping me alive

Breaking me, shaking me, shaping me into what I never wanted, oh
Breaking me, shaking me, making my beating heart a little stronger
Stronger, strong, baby

Breaking every chain that you put on me
You thought I wouldn’t change, but I grew on ya
‘Cause I will never be what you wanted
This fire, this fire, this fire is keeping me alive
Breaking every chain that you put on me
You thought I wouldn’t change, but I grew on ya
‘Cause I will never be what you wanted
This fire, this fire, this fire is keeping me alive
Making me believe I couldn’t do without ya
Make it hard to leave, you think it’s all about ya
You know I’ll never be what you wanted
This fire, this fire, this fire is keeping me alive
Keeping me alive
Keeping me alive
This fire, this fire, this fire is keeping me alive

Keeping Me Alive‘ ~Jonathan Roy~

I love this song……it’s on fire..warming me up on this cold and snowy morning. I’d not heard of Jonathan Roy until Youtube suggested I try it. I love finding now songs and artists this way. You never really know what you’re going to hear and sometimes I regret that simple click because of the noise that comes from the speakers, but the times that I sit spellbound with an incredible song make up for the few times I can’t get it turned off quick enough. What I love about the Youtube suggestions is they never give you a link to some top 10 hit that has about as much substance as Ramen noodles…….it’s always something obscure, to me anyway, and I love obscure! Did I mention this guy’s a Canadian? He is…..and he happens to be the son of Patrick Roy……the one and only former Montreal Canadiens goalie great. Who knew! Anyway, have a great weekend all….and stay warm….well unless you’re somewhere warm already….then just stay cool! 😀

For this picture I’m wearing the ‘Ulyssa Dress’ from *Just BECAUSE*, it’s cute and casual and with the built in panties it’s the perfect choice when you’re in a rush and need something to wear that looks great and is one easy click to being ready. It comes in 24 colours and the buttons and panties are HUD driven, along with an on/off toggle for the panties. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, Belleza(Freya), SLink(Physique/Hourglass) and Legacy mesh bodies.

One of my favourite hair is the ‘G1224’ from tram.

The pose is from the ‘Scarlet’ pack by STUN POSES.

I’m at the beautiful Lost Lagoon sim for this picture.

The Fear

The Fear

My, my, cold-hearted child, tell me how you feel
Just a blade in the grass, a spoke unto the wheel
Oh, my, my, cold-hearted child, tell me where it’s all gone
All the luster of your bones, those arms that held you strong

Oh, I’ve been worryin’ that my time is a little unclear
I’ve been worryin’ that I’m losing the ones I hold dear
I’ve been worryin’ that we all live our lives in the confines of fear

Oh, my, my, cold-hearted child, tell me how you feel
Just a grain in the morning air, dark shadow on the hill
Oh, my, my, cold-hearted child, tell me where it all falls
All this apathy you feel will make a fool of us all

Oh, I’ve been worryin’ that my time is a little unclear
I’ve been worryin’ that I’m losing the ones I hold dear
I’ve been worryin’ that we all live our lives in the confines of fear

Oh, I will become what I deserve
Oh, I will become what I deserve
Oh, I will become what I deserve
Oh, I will become what I deserve

I’ve been worryin’, I’ve been worryin’,
I will become what I deserve
I’ve been worryin’,
My time is a little unclear
I will become what I deserve

I’ve been worryin’, I’ve been worryin’
That my time is a little unclear
I’ve been worryin’, I’ve been worryin’
That I’m losing the ones I hold dear
I’ve been worryin’, I’ve been worryin’
That we all live our lives in the confines of fear

The Fear‘ ~Ben Howard~

As I stand and look out over the water at Giant’s Causeway at Grauland I can feel the cool ocean breeze, hear the birds as they dip and dive as they fly above me…….I can even hear the waves against the rocks and feel the water splashing on me as it does. All of that should feel like freedom….yet there’s always something keeping me trapped, something that stops me from feeling truly free. I’m trapped inside this mind….and there’s no way to escape, so like with anything that can be stressful I try to stay relaxed, breathe deep and live in the moment….because in the end that’s all we really have.

Holy man, that’s a little dark and depressing today, but it’s just a few thoughts I had when I was taking this picture. Yes, that’s a house arrest anklet………and for some reason it feels good, for some weird reason. I do admit to being a little quirky….so I guess it doesn’t surprise that I’ve taken a liking to being under house arrest. No worries, I still come and go as I please, with no one out looking for me to take me back home. If you want to put yourself under house arrest and spend the days binge watching Netflix and eating popcorn you can get your very own at The Men’s Department. It’s by Duckie and it’s unrigged and resizable so anyone can wear it. TMD runs until January 31.

The ‘Sunny’ bikini is from Blueberry and my breezy hair from tram.

The pose is from the ‘Frankfort’ set from Ana Poses.
