Decide What To Be And Go Be It

This post today is a single post with two meanings. One is very simple: I absolutely love this song. I think I have listened to it nearly every day for six months now. I love the lyrics, I love the music, I love the voice. I love that organ that rolls in so abruptly and so beautifully at the 1:50 mark.  The other meaning is more complicated, but it helps to explain how I’m feeling these days. More on that in the next few days:

The Avett Brothers – “Head Full of Doubt, Road Full of Promise”

There’s a darkness upon me that’s flooded in light
In the fine print they tell me what’s wrong and what’s right
And it comes in black and it comes in white
And I’m frightened by those that don’t see it

When nothing is owed or deserved or expected
And your life doesn’t change by the man that’s elected
If you’re loved by someone, you’re never rejected
Decide what to be and go be it

There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it
And there was a kid with a head full of doubt
So I’ll scream til I die and the last of those bad thoughts are finally out

There’s a darkness upon you that’s flooded in light
And in the fine print they tell you what’s wrong and what’s right
And it flies by day and it flies by night
And I’m frightened by those that don’t see it

There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it
And there was a kid with a head full of doubt
So I’ll scream til I die and the last of those bad thoughts are finally out

There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it

There’s a darkness upon me that’s flooded in light
In the fine print they tell me what’s wrong and what’s right
There’s a darkness upon me that’s flooded in light
And I’m frightened by those that don’t see it

  • I’m impressed, I must say. Actually rarely do I encounter a blog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the problem is one thing that not sufficient people are talking intelligently about. I’m very completely happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.

  • I’m really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays..
