Lyric day..

War in my mind.
There’s a war in my mind.
Seek and ye shall find,
That it’s howling all the time,
There’s a war in my mind.

Black in my soul.
It’s all black in my soul.
No diamond in the coal,
I reap just what I sow,
It’s all black in my soul.

– Beth Hart / War in My Mind

..time out.. ( more lyrics & quotes)

‘One need not be a chamber to be haunted; One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing Material place.’
— Emily Dickinson

“I have never seen battles quite as terrifyingly beautiful as the ones I fight when my mind splinters and races, to swallow me into my own madness, again.”
— Nicole Lyons / Hush

“And I keep on tellin’ everyone the truth,
But maybe that’s not the move,
And everyone wants to hear a strong opinion…
If it’s the same as you.
And they say honesty is the best policy,
If that were true,
Don’t think all of my friends would hate me.

— Bea Miller / That Bitch

‘..I am not fighting for you any more..‘ ( lyric / quote )

‘He said, “I see you now, and you are so very young,
But I’ve seen more battles lost than I have battles won,
And I’ve got this intuition, says it’s all for your fun.
And now will you tell me why?”

Well the young queen, she fixed him with an arrogant eye.
She said, “You won’t understand, and you may as well not try”
But her face was a child’s, and he thought she would cry,
But she closed herself up like a fan.

And she said, “I have swallowed a secret burning thread.
It cuts me inside, and often I’ve bled”.’

– from ‘The Queen and The Soldier‘ by Suzanne Vega

Prolonged Intermission

In which the author experiences an inability to articulate herself, thus expressing emotions and turmoil via choice lyrics. Potentially for some time ( days/weeks…months?)

Today’s mood: hopeful melancholia

Here’s a story of a girl
Who grew up lost and lonely.
Thinking love was fairytale,
And trouble was made only
For me.

Even in the darkness
Every colour can be found,
And every day of rain brings water
Flowing to things
Growing in the ground.

Intermission: Lyrics

‘You were blessed by a different kind of inner view:
It’s all magnified.
The highs would make you fly,
And the lows make you want to die.
And I was once there,
Hanging from that very ledge where you are standing.
So I know, I know, I know,
It’s easier to let go. ‘

-Nightminds / Missy Higgins

‘There were sounds in my head,
Little voices whispering
That I should go and this should end,
Oh, and I found myself listening.’

-Where I stood / Missy Higgins

‘But that’s not how I feel about you,
In fact I never wanna see you at all.
So maybe I’ll inject gasoline in my eye,
And hold a lighter to my eyeball.’

-I’d Rather / Hank Green & The Perfect Strangers

‘You’re coming round too late,
I’ve taken off my face,
And you won’t like it.
I haven’t seen anyone in days,
But it’s best this way,
You see I don’t like it.
Don’t want to be anyone again.’

-Low Blows / Meg Mac
