zissou

(no subject)

i think sometime this week i need to compile my list of what i consider quality "sad bastard music". the term comes from a scene early in High Fidelity, but i don't mean anything derogatory by it. i love sitting listening to soulful Johnny Cash or Trent Reznor "sad bastard" tracks. :)

going places that i've never been, seeing things i may never see again

what was i doing while all that time passed?
where was i when the hours turned to days?
when did several months start passing like several days?
i've always felt older than my years
but never so much as i do now
these weather-beaten bones ache for rest, my sun-beaten soul for respite
so many thousands of miles traveled already on these two feet
so many thousands more to go

little things i should've said and done, i just never took the time...

i wonder, how easy would it be
to withdraw from life completely
to not be missed and not be longed for
to turn and walk right out that door
left foot right foot left foot right
an open road beneath my feet
it's the living and breathing and surviving
it's the dying here alone
it's everything that drives me away
it's losing so much at once that kills me
that slow death that keeps me grounded
i'm so sick of this place
of tasting dried-up stale life in my mouth
of caring and loving and dealing
of falling and losing and failing
i'm not ready for this sort of thing...


don't pay me no mind, sometimes knights have to chase the sunset into oblivion

I must confess. I come close to tears anytime I listen to Jewel's Adrian. Why couldn't she have remained the sweet folk singer that she was instead of becoming the annoying whiny artist that likes reminding everyone that she lived in her car so she could pursue her music career rather than get a real job. You may proceed with laughing at me.
