outside

There’s only so long you can stay wrapped up in your own little worries. That was the river. This is the sea.

  1. I think my writing cryptic blog entries is one of the warning signs of blog cheesiness.
    So let me just really jump into the deep cheese and post the entire set of lyrics to the song:
    The Waterboys
    “This is the Sea”
    These things you keep
    Youíd better throw them away
    You wanna turn your back
    On your soulless days
    Once you were tethered
    And now you are free
    Once you were tethered
    Well now you are free
    That was the river
    This is the sea!
    Now if youíre feeliní weary
    If youíve been alone too long
    Maybe youíve been suffering from
    A few too many
    Plans that have gone wrong
    And youíre trying to remember
    How fine your life used to be
    Running around banging your drum
    Like itís 1973
    Well that was the river
    This is the sea!
    Now you say youíve got trouble
    You say youíve got pain
    You sayíve got nothing left to believe in
    Nothing to hold on to
    Nothing to trust
    Nothing but chains
    Youíre scouring your conscience
    Raking through your memories
    Scouring your conscience
    Raking through your memories
    But that was the river
    This is the sea!
    Now I can see you wavering
    As you try to decide
    Youíve got a war in your head
    And itís tearing you up inside
    Youíre trying to make sense
    Of something that you just canít see
    Trying to make sense now
    And you know you once held the key
    But that was the river
    And this is the sea!
    Now I hear thereís a train
    Itís coming on down the line
    Itís yours if you hurry
    Youíve got still enough time
    And you donít need no ticket
    And you donít pay no fee
    No you donít need no ticket
    You donít pay no fee
    Because that was the river
    And this is the sea!
    Behold the sea!

  2. Hehe but cryptic blog entries are fun! Sometimes I would post random statistical results from my thesis and then write “Yeah baby!” after them.
    It led to some interesting comments. =)
