I need something more, to keep on breathing for...

Music Monday.

Today, I'm displaying "Believe" by The Bravery .

I've found myself struggling lately with what I believe in and what I don't believe in. I don't mean in a religious or a spiritual sense. I mean in a general sense that covers much more than religion and spirituality. I've grown and changed a little. When I was younger, I was influenced a lot by what was around me. Like most people are. In the last few years, I've explored a lot and got into a lot on my own. Some things I used to think as weird and other certain things I used to be very against. I've learned recently that in some of my dislikes, it was really on a lack of understanding and a lack of being able to relate that made me against these things. Something I believed in up until this last year, I'm now against and wouldn't take any part of it.

Which brings me to why I picked the music video I did for today's post.
Sometimes I pick a video because I like the song and love the video. I never pick a video where I don't at least like the song though. For this one, I don't care much for the video but I absolutely fucking love this song. :) The lyrics are the thing about this song that I love the most. Not the music itself, which isn't bad. Not the vocals though I do like his voice. Not the video because as I said, already, it doesn't do anything for me or interest me too much at all. Not for the looks of the people in the band but simply the words they sing and meaning I find in them.

"The faces all around me they don't smile they just crack
Waiting for our ship to come but our ships not coming back
We do our time like pennies in a jar
What are we saving for
What are we saving for

There's a smell of stale fear and it's reeking from our skins
The drinking never stops because the drinks absolve our sins
We sit and grow our roots into the floor
What are we waiting for
What are we waiting for

[chorus]
So give me something to believe
Cause I am living just to breathe
And I need something more
To keep on breathing for
So give me something to believe

Something's always coming you can hear it in the ground
It swells into the air
With the rising
Rising sound
And never comes but shakes the boards and rattles all the doors
What are we waiting for
What are we waiting for

[repeat chorus]

I am hiding from some beast
But the beast was always here
Watching without eyes
Because the beast is just my fear
That I am just nothing
Now its just what I've become
What am I waiting for
Its already done

So give me something to believe
Cause I am living just to breathe
And I need something more
To keep on breathing for
So give me something to believe"


Happy Monday!

Catchy beat and the lyricssss! -- They might speak to me in a diff way than they speak to you, but that's the great thing about music. Music's the universal language. =)

GREAT song choice!

Hmmm
never heard it but I think everyone changes their views as they grow, through either personal experience, expanded knowledge or life stage.

I love saying this to people when they reflect back on their youth - "You were young and stupid once."

Re: changing opinions/beliefs/growth have you read about the ouroboros? It- and many things it is associated with- is food for thought :)
