Subdivisions – I left them behind in high school …. apparently others have not!

More music of course!

This was the music that was part of my thinking when I was growing up, probably why I really don’t give two hoots about what anyone wants to label me! *wink* Or not label …. *chuckle*

Had a short conversation about how some that say they are in the ‘community’ are more like a high school clique than they are mature adults! So this says it a bit more melodically! LoL


Music: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson
Lyrics: Neil Peart

Sprawling on the fringes of the city
In geometric order
An insulated border
In between the bright lights
And the far unlit unknown

Growing up it all seems so one-sided
Opinions all provided
The future pre-decided
Detached and subdivided
In the mass production zone

Nowhere is the dreamer
Or the misfit so alone

Subdivisions —
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
Subdivisions —
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
Any escape might help to smooth
The unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe
The restless dreams of youth

Drawn like moths we drift into the city
The timeless old attraction
Cruising for the action
Lit up like a firefly
Just to feel the living night

Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight

Somewhere out of a memory
Of lighted streets on quiet nights…

  1. Your video is unavailable lol. Guess the po po from the community disengaged you lol. Lily had problems today with posting videos she said. Btw, I read a post yesterday condemning me for being vanilla. Yup, apparently my vanilla marriage of thirty one years is without trust, is full of annoyance and frustration. Who knew? Where’s Lily’s wall licking section? I need to tell some to go lick a wall lol.😀

    1. Humm, the video shows for me, I’ll try posting it a different way! Thanks for the heads up!

      And you’ll have to send me that link, I’ll have to read how miserable I was for the first 15 years of my marriage I guess! Who knew …. poor us!! LoL You know I wrote a post some time ago called married first, it still applies. Guess it’s that ‘awful vanilla practice time’ that makes *us* still okay if our kink needs to go on hold for a while. Ever hear ME complain that we haven’t had time to play and I feel like we are drifting apart??? Oh well.
