QUOTE (still have made a choice @ Jun 24 2005, 01:27 PM)
Do u think "and the meek shall inherit the earth" is directly fromt he bible, or do u think neil just made it up?

I don't think most translations of the Bible use the "...and" before "the meek shall inherit the earth" - it's usually "Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth".  However, Neil was FAR from the first to use the "and the meek shall inherit the earth" phrasing.  We were discussing this on another board and I did a bit of searching and found it in books, speeches and other such sources going back as far as the early 1900's before I finally gave up looking biggrin.gif

static on your frequency
electrical storm in your veins
raging at unreachable glory
straining at invisible chains

and now you're trembling on a rocky ledge
staring down into a heartless sea
can't face life on a razor's edge
nothing's what you thought it would be

All of us get lost in the darkness
Dreamers learn to steer by the stars
All of us do time in the gutter
Dreamers turn to look at the cars
turn around and turn around and turn around
Turn around and walk the razor's edge
Don't turn your back
And slam the door on me

it's not as if this barricade
blocks the only road
it's not as if you're all alone
in wanting to explode

someone set a bad example
made surrender seem all right
the act of a noble warrior
who lost the will to fight

and now you're trembling on a rocky ledge
staring down into a heartless sea
done with life on a razor's edge
nothing's what you thought it would be

no hero in your tragedy
no daring in your escape
no salutes for your surrender
nothing noble in your fate
Christ, what have you done?


(I leave out the first verse because I've been out of school for too long, but the rest applies).  I first really listened to this song while I was in the hospital after a suicide attempt.  I think it hit me harder than all the therapy they gave me while I was there - and while it's no "magic pill" by any stretch of the imagination, when I'm getting down that low, I can listen to it and it helps me remember that there ARE other options, if I'm willing to turn around and work my way back to them, sort of like a tap on the shoulder bringing you out of a daze.  Once when I was feeling really low, I actually wrote a poem in "response" to the song.  Thankfully I don't feel that way very often:

Some days the pass is far too wide, the razor's edge too keen
To turn around and face the fear of future fates unseen
No more running, no more flight, the battle will begin
Against a monster deep inside, the enemy within

A weapon made of fear and rage to batter at the soul
The fear of hope, a rage at fate begin to take control
Then darker, darker spiral down, the way out is so far
Even for the dreamer who has learned to steer by stars

It ought to be second nature,
I mean the places where we live
Let's talk about this sensibly,
We're not insensitive

I've got idols and icons, unspoken holy vows
Thoughts to keep well-hidden
Sacred and forbidden
Free to browse among the holy cows

Angels and demons dancing in my head
Lunatics and monsters underneath my bed
Media messiahs preying on my fears
Pop culture prophets playing in my ears

Thank you. There's a strong sense of understanding that comes from reading and seeing that others get it. Not something that happens often.

From the first album I ever bought, tour I ever saw of 50 these words struck me....


A world of difference
A world so out of touch
Overwhelmed by everything
But wanting more so much

Call it blind frustration
Call it blind man's bluff
Call each other names
Your voices rude
Your voices rough
Then you learn the lesson
That it's cool to be so tough

The impulse is pure
Sometimes our circuits get shorted
By external interference
Signals get crossed
And the balance distorted
By internal incoherence

"Better the pride that resides in a citizen of the world, than the pride that divides when a colorful rag is unfurled."

That sums up my political ideology and has since I was 15. There may be better quotes, but that one I've used the most.
