Holding Out For a Hero

I couldn’t help but use a song with this picture. Its just been on my mind a lot lately and I’m pretty sure it influenced my photo.

Ella Mae Bowen ~ Holding Out For a Hero 

Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the Gods?
Where’s the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?
Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn and dream of what I need
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong, he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be larger than life, larger than life
Somewhere after midnight in my wildest fantasies
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There’s someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder end rising with the heat
Isn’t there a superman to sweep me off my feet
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong, he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be larger than life
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I would swear that there’s someone somewhere
Watching me
Through the wind and the chill and the rain
And the storm and the raging flood
Oh his approach is like the fire in my blood
I’ll need a hero
And then we’ll dance till the morning light
Dreaming he’ll lead, he’ll tight tonight’s the night
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong, he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the morning light
He’s gotta be sure, he’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life, larger than life
Larger than life, larger than life
Oh baby, baby
Baby, tonight

DollHouse

While putting this scene together, there was a song going through my head and every time I look at this picture I still hear it. So, here ya go, I’m sharing my ear worm with you all. I’ll even give you the lyrics! *giggles & sings*

Melanie Martinez – Dollhouse

Hey girl, open the walls, play with your dolls
We’ll be a perfect family
When you walk away, it’s when we really play
You don’t hear me when I say,
Mom, please wake up
Dad’s with a slut, and your son is smoking cannabis
No one never listens, this wallpaper glistens
Don’t let them see what goes down in the kitchen
Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees
(D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees)
Hey girl, look at my mom, she’s got it going on
Ha, you’re blinded by her jewelry
When you turn your back she pulls out a flask
And forgets his infidelity
Uh-oh, she’s coming to the attic, plastic
Go back to being plastic
No one never listens, this wallpaper glistens
One day they’ll see what goes down in the kitchen
Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees
(D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees)
Hey girl (hey girl, hey girl, hey girl, hey girl)
Hey girl, open your walls, play with your dolls
We’ll be a perfect family
Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees
(D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees)

Witches’ Song

Alcohol has weakened my mind…I can’t think straight, so you get a song today, but its a beautiful song and I’m not sure how well its known…so maybe give it a listen.♥

Marianne Faithfull Witches’ Song

Shall I see you tonight, sister, bathed in magic greet?
Shall we meet on the hilltop where the two roads meet?
We will form the circle, hold our hands and chant
Let the great one know what it is we want
Danger is great joy, dark is bright as fire
Happy is our family, lonely is the ward
Sister, we are waiting on the rock and chain
Fly fast through the airwaves, meet with pride and truth
Danger is great joy, dark is bright as fire
Happy is our family, lonely is the ward
Father, we are waiting for you to appear
Do you feel the panic, can you see the fear?
Mother, we are waiting for you to give consent
If there’s to be a marriage, we need contempt
Danger is great joy, dark is bright as fire
Happy is our family, lonely is the ward

The White Dress

She hated taking the subway so late at night, but she had to get home. She had work tomorrow and there’s no way she’d find a cab at this hour. This is what she gets for going out on a work night. Ugh, the subway always smelled like urine and body odor. She dreaded the train coming to rush that stink into her nostrils, almost as much as she dreaded getting on the train at this hour. There was no way she was sitting on those filthy seats in her white dress. She had managed to keep drinks from spilling on it all night and she’d be damned if she was going to mess it up on her way home.
As she walked down the stairs, she rolled her eyes to herself, why is there always a hooker passed out down here? At least the people didn’t look too shady, maybe she could manage this without getting mugged after all. Yeah, she’d be fine, but her could feel an anxiety attack coming on. She reached in her purse for a Xanax and some strawberry lip-gloss. At least the smell of the lip-gloss with help with the stench of this place.
She managed to make it home without incident. Locking her door, she dropped her purse on the entrance table and made her way to the kitchen for a glass of wine before bed. She made her way to the bedroom and just as she was about to set her wine down, the cat hopped up on the nightstand startling her and the red wine splashed down the front of her dress.

You Don’t See Me

Threw you the obvious and you flew with it on your back a name
In your recollection down among a million same
Difficult not to feel
a little bit disappointed and passed over
when I’ve looked right through to see you
naked but oblivious
and you don’t see me
But I threw you the obvious just to see
If there’s more behind the eyes of a fallen angel
eyes of a tragedy
Here I am expecting just a little bit too much
From the wounded but I see through it all and see you
‘Cause I threw you the obvious to see what occurs behind the
eyes of a fallen angel
Eyes of a tragedy
oh well, oh well apparently nothing
apparently nothing at all
You don’t, you don’t, you don’t see me
You don’t, you don’t, you don’t see me
You don’t, you don’t, you don’t see me
You don’t, you don’t, you don’t see me
You don’t see me
You don’t see me at all
Perfect Circle 3 Libras
I don’t make it a habit of listing entire lyrics, but these are rather short and sweet and really express something that’s been pretty heavy on my mind recently. People play these little games with each other…testing friends to find out how well we can trust each other…testing potential lovers for reactions. While we’re sitting there with our expectations, they might very well be sitting there trying to please us not realizing that we’re testing them at all, nor are they being honest with their response…so we walk away from each other wondering what happened. How did it all go so wrong?
Or worse we go out of our way to make it pretty damn clear where we stand. We reveal layers of ourselves to another and they’re as oblivious as can be to what’s happening right in front of them. We figure direct doesn’t work, so we drop hints…they still don’t get it. Its as if they don’t see us at all. They see something they’ve created in their own mind and have not figured out anything about who we are…absolutely clueless. And we are at a loss…

lybra2

Yes, once in a while I go dark…very dark, but look at the gruesome inspiration I have found to tap into that darkness. While perhaps not cocktail attire for Frank’s, this delicious dark gown from Lybra with matching mask, begs for my dark side to step forth. To let my inner demons crawl forth and dance on the gallows.
