Random "The Saints" lyrics... [Oct. 23rd, 2003|08:53 am]
[Current Mood |sadsad]
[Listening to |The Saints--Prodigal Son--"Shipwreck"]

I can't believe how much my way of thinking is controlled by my anorexia. I've learned to master the symptoms for the most part, but every now and then a thought comes through to me that is completely irrational.

I can't find Chris Bailey lyrics anywhere! Maybe I'll just write them out by hand.

The night that we sailed
There were crowds on the quay side
Full of fear & excitement
Of an unknown tomorrow
The old world left behind us
We sailed to the horizon
The voyage was uneventful we had sailed there before
Until the night one mile from the headland
In a moment of truth
A pathetic twist of fortune
I'd heard a voice in my head I'd ignored it
Was it a warning & how would I know
All the hopes & the dreams on the rocks they were shattered
No invitation was offered to debate the outcome
As I left that ship I was leaving a graveyard
What help could I offer in defence against the sea.....

Can that be all there is, nothing more,
No sign of life on this empty stage...
Is this all that's left
The ruins of a passing parade
With nothing left inside
Not even a memory
This must be a crime
A massacre of the heart and mind.....

Good day to everyone!

it was soooooo great talking to you. And you are not your ED. YOu are so much more than that. Ed is not beautiful, intellegent, creative, caring, compassionate.... And YOU ARE. You are in control of you and your brain. I was once told," Your brain is a dangerous place, don't go there alone." How true, when we hear our brains begin to take over it is time to reach for help and a new voice to bring us back. Love ya

Thank you so much--this is very good advice, and I'll remember it. And the next time I'm down, it will help me a lot. Thanks so much for the compliments--I could say the same about you as well :)
Thank you for suggesting that I call you--it was really great to be able to talk.
I hope everything's all right where you are, and I'll talk to you later :)

Sure, call anytime I love talking to you. As far as the compliments it isn't hard to give them to you. they are the truth. You need to borrow my glasses to look at yourself. Have a good weekend. Go buy some girly socks. :)

There's a link to Saints lyrics in my favorites, go to links and then Crystal's favorites, it's called "Songs of the Saints". I haven't been able to find much of his solo stuff online though.

And yes, it is amazing how much our neuroses (ED-related or no) can control us. The trick is in not letting them get the best of us.

Thanks a lot--that's where I get most of the Saints stuff.
Yeah, it's weird--I've only found two sites about his solo music, and neither had lyrics.
Very good advice--I'll keep trying to not let it gain control.

So ye've been looking at me links, have ye? Good fer yeou!

Yeah... I can't believe he's so underappreciated. I mean, he's extremely talented, and many of his songs are quite catchy. I just don't understand it. Even the people who no one's ever heard of but are that good usually have these huge underground followings and tons of websites devoted to them. It's just baffling. He is so good though, I mean you didn't see him live. He was amazing live.

Yeah, we've just got to keep trying.
