    The Flame Still Burns

    I live a life that's surreal
    Where all that I feel I am learning
    Oh life, has been turned on the lathe
    Reshaped with a flame that's still burning
    And in time, it's all a sweet mystery
    When you shake the tree of temptation
    Yeah and I, I know the fear and the cost
    Of a paradise lost in frustration

    And the flame still burns
    It's there in my soul for that unfinished goal
    And the flame still burns
    From a glimmer of then
    It lights up again in my life
    In my life, yeah

    I, I want my thoughts to be heard
    The unspoken words of my wisdom
    Today, as the light starts to flow
    Tomorrow who knows who will listen
    But my life has no language of love
    No word from above is appearing
    Oh the time, in time there's a fire that's stoked
    With a reason of hope and believing

    And the flame still burns
    It's there in my soul for that unfinished goal
    And the flame still burns
    From a glimmer of then
    It lights up again in my life
    In my life, yeah

    Keep rolling keep that flame still burning
    Keep on rolling while the world keeps turning
    Yeah, keep a'rolling
    Yeah, keep a'rolling, yeah

    And the flame still burns
    It's there in my soul for that unfinished goal
    And the flame still burns
    From a glimmer of then
    It lights up again in my life
    In my life, yeah

    Afraid of Heights by Billy Talent. It reminds me of my former best friend, before she stabbed me in the back (figuratively) and tried to send me to prison (literally). Call me a sentimental bitch, but I think of her and start to tear up now every time I hear it.

    Afraid of Heights
    Wherever I go, wherever I go
    I have to question the hand that I hold close
    Wherever I go, wherever I go
    I have to silence the words that you fear most

    Don't ever let go, don't ever let go
    Are we destined to hit the ground below?
    Don't ever let go, don't ever let go
    We're at the end of a burning tightrope

    Now I'm waiting on the corner in the back of your mind
    It's a lonely place to live, and I got nowhere to hide
    'Cause you told me that you'd never be afraid of heights again
    Nobody ever thought that we could make it this high
    You're the only one I'd follow 'til the end of time
    If we fall, we fall together baby, don't think twice again

    Together I know, together I know
    That we'd burn like a rocket's afterglow
    Together I know, together I know
    We could conquer the stars beyond this world

    We let it all go, we let it all go
    I'm just a voice on a broken radio
    We let it all go, we let it all go
    We got lost in the constellations

    Now I'm waiting on the corner in the back of your mind
    It's a lonely place to live, and I got nowhere to hide
    'Cause you told me that you'd never be afraid of heights again
    Nobody ever thought that we could make it this high
    You're the only one I'd follow 'til the end of time
    If we fall, we fall together baby, don't think twice again

    And after all these years, and all of this time
    Darling, if I'm still a question in your mind
    Just say the words and this will end

    You told me that you'd never be afraid of heights
    You told me that you'd never be afraid of heights
    You told me we should never be afraid of heights again
    You told me that you'd never be afraid of heights
    You told me that you'd never be afraid of heights
    If we fall, we fall together baby, don't think twice again

    Wherever I go, wherever I go
    I hear your voice on a broken radio
    Wherever I go, wherever I go
    I know we'll burn like a rocket's afterglow
    Don't ever let go, don't ever let go
    So are we destined to hit the ground below?
    Don't ever let go, don't ever let go
    Are we just watching the final chapter close?

    Lyrics are on the video

    EDIT: Alternatively...



    "You'll Rebel To Anything (As Long As It's Not Challenging)"

    You don't mean it

    You need a uniform
    So you won't be ignored
    You are affected
    And so you're accepted

    It's time you invested in a bottle of poison
    So we don't have to hear about you bitchin and moanin
    You think you could afford a fuckin bottle of asprin

    Boo fuckin hoo you're not the only one whose live's a piece of shit
    And yet miraculously somehow we all seem to deal with it
    Did anybody think that you would really seriously slit your wrists
    In fact I think that everybody thinks you're seriously full of shit

    You don't mean it

    You need a uniform
    So you won't be ignored
    You are affected
    And so you're accepted

    It's time you invested in a bottle of poison
    So we don't have to hear about you bitchin and moanin
    You think you could afford a fuckin bottle of asprin

    You think you're saying something relevant as you connect the dots
    You never realized you have to get in line to suck a cock
    You're telling me that fifty million screaming fans are never wrong
    I'm telling you that fifty million screaming fans are fucking morons

    You don't mean it

    Boo fuckin hoo you're not the only one whose live's a piece of shit

    Earth, Wind & Fire: Boogie Wonderland




    Dance, boogie wonderland
    Ha, ha, dance
    Boogie wonderland
    Midnight creeps so slowly into hearts of men who need more than they get
    Daylight deals a bad hand to a woman who has laid too many bets

    The mirror stares you in the face and says
    "Baby, uh, uh, it don't work"
    You say your prayers though you don't care
    You dance and shake the hurt
    Dance, boogie wonderland
    Ha, ha, dance
    Boogie wonderland

    Sounds fly through the night
    I chase my vinyl dreams to Boogie Wonderland
    I find romance when I start to dance in Boogie Wonderland
    I find romance when I start to dance in Boogie Wonderland

    All the love in the world can't be gone
    All the need to be loved can't be wrong
    All the records are playing and my heart keeps saying
    "Boogie wonderland, wonderland"

    Dance, boogie wonderland
    Dance, boogie wonderland

    All the love in the world can't be gone
    All the need to be loved can't be wrong
    All the records are playing
    And my heart keeps saying
    "Boogie wonderland, wonderland"
    Dance, boogie wonderland
    Ha, ha, dance
    Boogie wonderland

    I'm an old. I remember Beck's "I'm a Loser Baby" being the anthem of my high school narrative sound-track, along with "Birdhouse" from TMBG's 'Flood' album. I still enjoy early 90s alternative rock, even though it is now played quite heavily on the adult casual classic rock stations that signify my age.

    My musical taste sort of stratified between my mid 20s and late 30s, and then curiously enough, it broadened out a bit in my 40s. I've developed a bit of taste for both the Son House style of delta blues, and the early 60s soul of Sam and Dave. I listen to 'Hold on, I'm coming' three or four times a week on my way to work.

    You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
    You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
    You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
    And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
    You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking
    And after a while, you can work on points for style
    Like the club tie, and the firm handshake
    A certain look in the eye and an easy smile
    You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to
    So that when they turn their backs on you,
    You'll get the chance to put the knife in
    You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder
    You know it's going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you get older
    And in the end you'll pack up and fly down south
    Hide your head in the sand,
    Just another sad old man
    All alone and dying of cancer
    And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest you have sown
    And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
    And it's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw around
    So have a good drown, as you go down, all alone
    Dragged down by the stone (stone, stone, stone, stone, stone)
    I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused
    Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used
    Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise
    If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this maze?
    Deaf, dumb, and blind, you just keep on pretending
    That everyone's expendable and no-one has a real friend
    And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner
    And everything's done under the sun
    And you believe at heart, everyone's a killer
    Who was born in a house full of pain
    Who was trained not to spit in the fan
    Who was told what to do by the man
    Who was broken by trained personnel
    Who was fitted with collar and chain
    Who was given a pat on the back
    Who was breaking away from the pack
    Who was only a stranger at home
    Who was ground down in the end
    Who was found dead on the phone
    Who was dragged down by the stone
