A Moment in Time

A moment to reflect on recent outbreaks of war

To the solider

The civilian

The martyr

The victim

This is war

A moment of truth, and a moment to lie, a moment to live and to die

This is war

Do or die and the story goes

“I believe in music, its everything to me”

Holding onto many dreams ‘to see things, travel around the world’

Music is something you hold onto

I re-edited together two 30 Seconds to Mars tracks.

Amazing that I’d video taped the two clips over 18 months ago and they fit together really well.

Pretend that you are brave

When you’re up against a trouble, 
    Meet it squarely, face to face; 
Lift your chin and set your shoulders, 
    Plant your feet and take a brace. 
When it’s vain to try to dodge it, 
    Do the best that you can do; 
You may fail, but you may conquer, 
    See it through! 

Black may be the clouds about you 
    And your future may seem grim, 
But don’t let your nerve desert you; 
    Keep yourself in fighting trim. 
If the worst is bound to happen, 
    Spite of all that you can do, 
Running from it will not save you, 
    See it through! 

Even hope may seem but futile, 
    When with troubles you’re beset, 
But remember you are facing 
    Just what other men have met. 
You may fail, but fall still fighting; 
    Don’t give up, whate’er you do;

Now we are mostly out the other side of the stresses of 2020 and able to feel moderately optimistic, perhaps it’s also a time to be kind to ourselves.

Singing Praises with Fat Boy Slim

And I’m comfy like a cesspool
Want to be with you
And it’s my premonition
I better give my heart a listen
And my preacher sayAll of your demons will wither away
Ecstasy comes and they cannot stay
You’ll understand when you come my way
‘Cause all of my demons have withered awayAll of your demons will wither away
Ecstasy comes and they cannot stay
You’ll understand when you come my way
‘Cause all of my demons have withered away
All of my demons have withered away

Drop the hate
Forgive each other
Drop the hate hate hate hate
(repeat)

How on earth are you supposed to vibe around the fake ones
The one, the ones that say
They know what is what but they don’t know what is what
They just strut
What the fuck?I get deep, I get deep, I get deep, I get deep, I get deeper
Into this thing
And I pretend that they’re not there
I just staregrocery cart with item
Up in the booth at the dread man spinnin the song
Spinnin it strong
Playing things like
We cannot house we can
That’s my shit
What?
Whoooooo!

I get deep, I get deep, I get deep, I get deeper
Into this thing
The deeper I go
The more knowledge I know
What to sing
What to bring
Wha
