:: Life Uncommon ::

Logged onto MSN via Mini this morning and was amazed to find nobody online.
For five minutes, anyway.
Till iamcrest logged on.
We then started to talk about the Id and the Superego.
Yeah, Id and Superego at eight in the morning.
It drifted to Madonna to London to Long Term Distance Relationships to Lonely Tokyo to Ugly Strippers to Both Sides Now and eventually to Jewel.

iamcrest recalls "Hands" and "Foolish Games".
Her poignant lyrics simply tear away the layers to reveal the innermost.

"Well in case you failed to notice,
In case you failed to see,
This is my heart bleeding before you,
This is me down on my knees
"

Simply Brilliant.

Another lesser known song, which possess the same 'tearing' effect must be "Life Uncommon".

Don’t worry mother
It’ll be alright
And don’t worry sister
Say your prayers and sleep tight
And it’ll be fine
Lover of mine
It’ll be just fine

"And lend your voices only
To sounds of freedom
No longer lend your strength
To that which you wish
To be free from

Fill your lives
With love and bravery
And you shall lead
A life uncommon

I’ve heard your anguish
I’ve heard your hearts cry out
We are tired, we are weary
But we aren’t worn out
Set down your chains
Until only faith remains
Set down your chains

There are plenty of people
Who pray for peace
But if praying were enough
It would’ve come to be
Let your words enslave no one
And the heavens will hush themselves
To hear our voices ring our clear
With sounds of freedom
Sounds of freedom

Come on you unbelievers
Move out of the way
There is a new army coming
And we are armed with faith
To live, we must give
To live
"

How apt.
