into this night i wander

No Brandon, it doesn't rhyme. Perhaps you'd like to discount the poetry of songwriters today?

i was blessed with a load full of heavy at birth
heavy hands with which i could take the world in my grasp
if only the opportunity presented itself
a large pair of heavy shoulders
to carry the weight of the world on my back
heavy feet with which to hold me up while i shuffle along
trying to make my way through the monotany of the day
a heavy heart with which i could lug around
all the wounds the world could leave me with
wounds it gave to me in the spirit of giving
that left me with a load full of heavy

into this night i wander

so i might call the song "i was right all along"...

...though I guess in the end it doesn't matter if i'm right or wrong because all it amounts to is a brief moment of elation or self-deprecation followed by a return to the monotony of life on this awful island.

Next time you want a date with razor blades and need a canvas, use my skin...

I'd blame the shift in weather, but I like dreary days. They remind me that this spaceship is in a neutral setting, just coasting along until it finally gets someplace worthwhile.

i've been wallowing in my own chaotic, insecure delusions...

If you had to choose 5 albums to live with for the rest of your life, what would they be? I ask this because it occured to me that Tool's Aenema album is probably the best album I own yet it never occurs to me just how good this album is until I've got it in the player. I know that Lateralus doesn't match it in quality, but I've yet to pick up Adema to see how it is.

I don't know what the other 4 albums are that would HAVE to be in my collection. I'll give it some thought.
