Pink Floyd – Lost for Words

I was asked by someone if I had some songs I could recommend for listening, some songs that helped me when I was getting through things but as I started looking around it occurred to me that the choice of songs really depends on the issues you are trying to concur. My songs might not work for you because my issues were not the same as yours, even if they did come from a similar place.
For example, my problem was not fear and anxiety my problem was rage, hate and numbness …. so my songs originally were like these:
Lyrics
I was spending my time in the doldrums
I was caught in a cauldron of hate
I felt persecuted and paralyzed
I thought that everything else would just wait
While you are wasting your time on your enemies
Engulfed in a fever of spite
Beyond your tunnel vision reality fades
Like shadows into the night
To martyr yourself to caution
Is not going to help at all
Because there’ll be no safety in numbers
When the right one walks out of the door
Can you see your days blighted by darkness?
Is it true you beat your fists on the floor?
Stuck in a world of isolation
While the ivy grows over the door
So I open my door to my enemies
And I ask could we wipe the slate clean
But they tell me to please go fuck myself
You know you just can’t win

My songs now are still power songs. Many have to do with over coming the urge to crawl into my head and be alone once more. The lone wolf indeed … or simply not letting the rage consume me.

I woke from a horrible nightmare this morning, so much for sleeping in. I’ll have Floyd on all day until the Bear comes home and I will fight the urge to dawn the armor of the past. Stress is a b*tch! What can I say.

  1. Sorry that you had nightmares, nijntje >< Sometimes they make the day just a little harder to get through.

    Thanks for the song recommendations πŸ™‚ I think you're right in that the songs to listen to depend on what I'm struggling with. For me, I need songs that speak tenderly to my soul because I tend to me overly harsh with myself.

    I hope you get through today okay!

    1. I’m doing very well now actually, thanks though. I got out some music and wrote out all my thoughts, now the Bear is home and I’m back on solid ground.

      Much like that book I mentioned, I took the cue that I’m overloaded with things right now so I’m putting aside the things that CAN wait and just having a calm day! πŸ˜€

      Hope you are as well!
      A friend sent me this, it might be more your style! πŸ˜€
