Sometimes you feel real old, older than you are. Check the aches and pains, the hairline, the demands of life. Responsibilites, responsibilities. Worse things have happened to all of us; the circus wasn't as good as you though it would be, the movie stunk, etc., etc....
Punching the clock, punching the wall, hating your boss. You can't go if you don't know, and you can't know if you don't go. and everybody in the world has their own song in their heads. The best songs ever. Problem is figuring a way to get them out and present them to others.
You've got to know where the brakes are. Enjoy life at a realistic pace. You crazy youngsters, what with your nightlife and everything. And it's important to trust other people, while putting stock in yourself as well. Reevaluating your priorities, checking yourself daily.
Not everyone is a victim of circumstance; conversely, nobody should feel like a martyr all the time. Problem? It's hard enough to communicate these days; some of us don't even get the chance. Some others don't know they have a chance.
When you travel frequently, you find a lot of images. And sometimes, you have to try and make the best of a bad situation: more often than not, we grin and bear it. Other times, you learn to enjoy some small facet of your predicament. Nothing too elaborate, just an attempt to adjust priorities.
Revolution starts at home, preferably in the bathroom mirror.

Example? Winter always comes too soon. This year was the worst I can remember, except when I was five years old. Pushed open the front door, got lost in the snow.
(from "warehouse: songs and stories")

you can live at home

Put this on last week, it's such a classic, there's stuff on here that you could argue has never been bettered by anyone, and it certainly throws today's 'indie' landscape into sharp relief, I mean whatever happene d to band's who wanted to sound as good as this, are they all in Screamo or fey indie bands now?

Above comments refer to Zen Arcade and not Warehouse Songs and Stories, I got confused what with the picture and everything, don't get me wrong, Warehouse is as a fine album but Zen Arcade is the one.

i agree with you: zen arcade is the one. my fav is side 3, the silver side (i think is one of the best EVER). that's why this pic.
i just wanted to put the notes and the song from warehouse - that means a lot to me in these times.
i don't pay attention to the "screamo" scene: these years to me seems not so important like those. i hope some band will be important for teens as the huskers for me in the 80's.
thanks for the comments, always welcome dr. :))
