Time to Liberate

“Four walls like a prison
Feels like another victim
Something’s wrong
Something’s missing
You scream when it hurts but there’s nobody listenin’
Gettin’ sick of going psycho
Burnin’ quick, a downward spiral
Not a slave or an animal
Someone break me out this cage
It’s time to liberate
From everyone who loves to hate
From everything that’s makin’ you live the lie
Don’t you think it’s time to twist your fate
Liberate”
~ James Durbin – Liberate

Had Enough

“Take a deep breath and count to three
And then I’ll be behavin’
I feel like people just don’t get me
Maybe I’m crazy

Think I’ve blown a fuse
There’s blood on my knuckles
The smile on my face is fake
And the vein on my head suggests you get running

I’ve had enough, had enough
Had enough, had enough yeah
Cause I’ve had enough
I think I’m reaching the limit
You should keep your distance
Cause I’ve had enough”
~ Diamante – Had Enough

Collected the Pieces

“I’ve tasted blood and it is sweet
I’ve had the rug pulled beneath my feet
I’ve trusted lies and trusted men
Broke down and put myself back together again
Stared in the mirror and punched it to shatters
Collected the pieces and picked out a dagger
I’ve pinched my skin in between my two fingers
And wished I could cut some parts off with some scissors”
~ Halsey – Nightmare

This is Real

Here’s a snippet of one of the best songs ever, performed by some of the greatest rock musicians of my time. It’s amazing talent like this that for a few minutes, even on the worst day, can make me glad to be alive. I love to listen to this on full volume and sing as loud as I want and dare anyone to try and stop me. If you’re not familiar, then check it out, the youtube link is below….this is real fucking music!!!

“Under the water,
It’s cold and it’s grey.
My torrid autumn,
Another season decays.
Open up the Hollow,
And my walls come down.
I tell you it’s a problem,
Just when no one’s around.
But then,

I know what’s wrong,
God, you complicated everything.
I know you’re gone, gone, gone,
This is where I will draw a line.

I will draw my line.

Burning my cathedrals’,
Cause I don’t pray anymore.
Look at all of these people, Tragic little people,
They smile and then they don’t know what for.
But then,

I know what’s wrong,
God, you complicated everything.
I know you’re gone, gone, gone,
This is where I will blur my line.”
~ From Can To Can’t
(Corey Taylor with Dave Grohl, Rick Nielsen, Scott Reeder)
(from “Sound City” soundtrack)

Balance

We all need balance in our lives, an exchange that allows time for our jobs, leisure, socializing, and other activities. Making room for each area can improve our daily lives, as well provide outlets to pursue new interests.
Remember playing teeter totter or seesaw as a kid, trying to balance with a friend, suspended in the air, without moving up or down? But let one of you hop off, someone was falling on their ass HARD. The same can be true about a life that’s too imbalanced. Too much focus in one area leaves other areas neglected and eventually we fall on our ass.
Of course, its going to be damn near impossible to achieve that perfect balance in all areas of our lives, but if we can space some time from those activities that demand the most from us and redistribute some of that energy…well, we’ll be a lot closer to obtaining that balance that is so badly needed to enrich the quality of our lives.

Ghost

“Ghost, I see you standing there
Don’t turn away, I want you to stay
Ghost, what’s your name?
Why so surprised? I’m interested
You’re just a soul that blends into the crowd
I hear you so loud no one else hears a sound
You reach out your hand no one else feels a thing
And I’m just a stranger who could be a friend”
~ Jacob Lee – Ghost

Muy Bueno

Now, don’t go getting confused. I do not speak Spanish, but I’ll proudly admit that I love the language and I love the food. Well, to be fair, I’m not sure I love authentic Spanish or Mexican food, but I do love tacos and whatever texmex they used to sever at my all time favorite Mexican restaurant, El Palacio. They closed in 2017 and I literally cried. It’s funny to think that we get so attached to places, but I know it was more than a place. It held memories from various times in my life. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was festive, and the times I spent there will never be forgotten.

I’ll Be Ok

“We live in the rain, a sea of change
You can’t keep anything you take
Lovely face of lives we chase
Is but dust for wind to take
When all is gone, the only loss
To not have loved at every cost
When you can say, and I can say
We loved with every step we take, I’ll be okay
How do you love when your heart is broken?
How do you speak when you feel outspoken?
I can forgive and be forgiven
By learning to heal with a heart wide open”
