All at once the world cant overwhelm me
There's almost nothing that you could tell me
that could ease my mind
Which way will you run
When it's always all around you
and the feeling lost and found you again
a feeling that we have no control
Around the sun some say
it's gonna be the new hell some say
it's still too early to tell some say
it really aint no myth at all
Keep asking ourselves are we really strong enough
And there so many things that we got too proud of
We're too proud of, we're too proud of
I wanna take a preconceived down from underneath your feet
and we could shake it off and instead we plant some seed
Watch them as they grow
and with each new bead from your heart the roots grow deeper
the branches will they reach for what
Nobody really knows
But underneath it all there is this heart all alone
What about when it's gone
And it really won't be so long
Sometimes it feels like a heart is no place to be singing from at all
There's a world we've never seen,
there's still hope between the dreams
and the weight of it all could blow away with a breeze.
If you're waiting on the wind
don't forget to breath cause
as the darkness gets deeper well be sick
and so we reach for love,
at least something we can hold.
But I'll reach to you from where time just can't go
What about when it's gone
and it really won't be so long.
Sometimes it feels like a heart is no place to be singing from at all.
I'm a huge fan of the show on USA Network "Psych" and in one episode they say "dazzle and stretch". I cannot for the life of me remember which episode. If anyone remembers, please tell me!
It's from the episode "9 Lives" season 1, episode 5
Shawn Spencer hands Burton Guster the newspaper.
Gus reads the newspaper.
Gus: 70% off of storm doors and window panes? Everything must go.
Shawn: Gus, flip it over. It’s her.
Gus flips the newspaper over.
Gus: “Struggling actress lands big break in Santa Barbara play”.
Shawn: And then kills herself? I don’t think so.
Gus: Okay, you might be onto something.
Gus: The play is called Dazzle and Stretch?
Shawn: Dazzle and Stretch?
And then later in the episode:
Shawn Spencer pretends to be possessed by Gloria Starks. Shawn walks seductively, and speaks in a woman’s voice.
Shawn: Oh, despair! I fear that you will leave me. What choice do I have?
Shawn starts singing, and dancing.
Shawn: I dazzle, and I stretch. I dazzle, and I stretch.
Lassiter: What the hell is going on here?
The Chief shushes Detective Lassiter.
Chief: Mr. Spencer, this is telling me nothing.
Gus: He can’t hear you right now ‘cause, see, he’s channeling the cat who’s channeling Gloria.
Shawn: I dazzle.
Chief: Well, then what are we looking at?
Lassiter: Bad acting.
Shawn: And stretch.
Okay, Ill try to make it short and to the point.
I am 21 years old and have been living in CT my whole life. Ive always been a shy-shut out person, living with two angry parents. As i got older, I realized that it wasnt my life that was sucky, it was this state, and now that i have been out of high school, reality has really set in and now I realize I need to get out of this god awful state.
People are mean and cruel, rude and stare at you funny, No body is nice or kind here, people judge you and make you feel uncomfortable, unless you are rich then you are dirt poor, like me and my family. There are no opportunitys here, just hard labor for cheap money, and its really hard to find jobs for a girl too.
This state is getting worse and worse and worse, Its so bad i have to be on medication because the events that happen in my everyday life and getting to me. I hate waking up in the morning. Im so depressed I cant stand it any longer.
Ive been unemployed for over a year, ive applied to ABUNCH of places, i am in so much debt that people are harassing me. I cant even afford to fund my books for college. $10.00 to me is a miracle.
I want to move, I NEED to move, somewhere..ANYWHERE.
Please give me some advice, i need to get away from my parents and away from this hell on earth.
What should I do?
Here's what you're going to do, and I promise all things good will flow from this activity…
You're going to learn how to play the guitar (and sing if possible).
(Somebody you know has a acoustic or electric guitar just sitting around collecting dust, so you're going to put new strings on it, and pick it up everyday surf the internet for simple instructions and clues on how to play it.)
For inspiration, play the song "Breakaway" by Kelly Clarkson…
If you pick it up everyday and mess around with it for an hour each night, within one year, you will be ready to form a garage band.
There are two very cool places you could move to with plenty of job opportunities. One of them is a neighborhood in Houston, Texas called "Montrose". The other is an off-campus community in Santa Barbara, (Goleta) California called "Isla Vista…" (google it)
Learning to play the guitar will distract you from your misery, give you purpose in life, make you more popular, and it's a fun hobby to have, and it's a great way to kill time. It will build up your self-esteem, confidence, and give you a much-needed outlet for your frustrations, and it will give you a way to "channel" your artistic urges in a productive and fulfilling manner.
(You can thank me later…now on your feet, Soldier…you have a world of music to conquer…rock on…)
