recall...

i love this song i'm about to post. there is something so comforting in these painful lyrics. it's actually hard to explain. if you ever get a chance to listen to brave saint saturn i'd highly recommend it. also, if you ever get a chance to anything written or sung by dennis bayne (culp) i'd highly recommend it as well. i don't know what else to say...there's just something about this song that always gets me...

it was all about acceleration
all for notoriety
all about the destination
driven by my own abilities
rockets shattered, screamed, and then fell away
lift this juggernaut into the sky
radio waves in the frozen night, spelling "i miss you"

like a flicker of light in the back of my mind
and it all comes back to me
like an overdue sunrise
it all comes back to me

there's nothing like complete exhaustion
the atrophy of complete defeat
the feeling of the world upon my shoulders
and realizing i am incomplete
well there's a lot of freedom in failure
of recklessness of weightless abandonment
i remember light coming through stained glass
and it reminds me

like a flicker of light in the back of my mind
and it all comes back to me
like an overdue sunrise
it all comes back to me
i remember your love being better than life
when it all comes back to me
i will sing in the shadows
when it all comes back
when it all comes back
when it all comes back
to me...

You are right... there is something comforting in those words. Maybe about something distantly hopeful when I'm all worn out, when I've crashed and burned, when I realize I can't do this alone... (?)

Thank you.
