Suicide is Painless


 

Through early morning fog I see
Visions of the things to be
The pains that are withheld for me
I realize and I can see…

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please.

The game of life is hard to play
I’m gonna to lose it anyway
The losing card I’ll someday lay
So this is all I have to say…

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please.

The sword of time will pierce our skins
It doesn’t hurt when it begins
But as it works its way on in
The pain grows stronger, watch it grin.

And suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.

A brave man once requested me
To answer questions that are the key,
“Is it to be or not to be?”
and I replied “oh why ask me?”

And suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
and I can take or leave it if I please.

And you can do the same thing if you please…

Goodbye, King of Pop


I am deeply saddened by the death of Michael Jackson. It’s so hard to believe that the King has passed away.

I grew up listening to his songs, and there was a time when music meant Michael Jackson to me. It’s so freaking unbelievable that he died this early.

Rest in peace MJ, you’ll always be in our hearts. You were truly the King of Pop, and you’ll be greatly missed!

My top 10 favourite MJ tracks:

01) Heal The World
02) Man in the Mirror
03) I Just Can’t Stop Loving You
04) Smooth Criminal
05) Black or White
06) Bad
07) Beat It
08) You Rock My World
09) You Are My Life
10) They Don’t Care About Us

Song of Bangladesh


Bangladesh, Bangladesh
Bangladesh, Bangladesh
When the sun sinks in the west
Die a million people of the Bangladesh

The story of Bangladesh
Is an ancient one again made fresh
By blind men who carry out commands
Which flow out of the laws upon which nation stands
Which is to sacrifice a people for a land

Bangladesh, Bangladesh
Bangladesh, Bangladesh
When the sun sinks in the west
Die a million people of the Bangladesh

Once again we stand aside
And watch the families crucified
See a teenage mother’s vacant eyes
As she watches her feeble baby try
To fight the monsoon rains and the cholera flies

And the students at the university
Asleep at night quite peacefully
The soldiers came and shot them in their beds
And terror took the dorm awakening shrieks of dread
And silent frozen forms and pillows drenched in red

Bangladesh, Bangladesh
Bangladesh, Bangladesh
When the sun sinks in the west
Die a million people of the Bangladesh

Did you read about the army officer’s plea
For donor’s blood? It was given willingly
By boys who took the needles in their veins
And from their bodies every drop of blood was drained
No time to comprehend and there was little pain

And so the story of Bangladesh
Is an ancient one again made fresh
By all who carry out commands
Which flow out of the laws upon which nations stand
Which say to sacrifice a people for a land

Bangladesh, Bangladesh
Bangladesh, Bangladesh
When the sun sinks in the west
Die a million people of the Bangladesh

Written, tuned, and sung by American folk singer Joan Baez. She performed it at “Concert for Bangladesh” in Madison Square Garden in 1971. The song was originally named “The Story of Bangladesh”, but renamed later on.

Are You On Twitter?


You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter
And if you aren’t there already you’ve missed it
If you haven’t been bookmarked, retweeted and blogged
You might as well not have existed

In the old days it was all about achievements
Collecting all your trophies in a shrine
Then everybody came across the internet
And suddenly you had to be online

A home page was all you really needed
To seem like a success but not a geek
As long as you updated semi-annually
And checked your email once or twice a week

You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter…
Technology was moving rather quickly
And the next thing you needed was a blog
With intimate and detailed press releases
And now and then a photo of your dog

More recently the students brought us Facebook
And everybody has a hundred friends
The parties in the photos look amazing
They’re not so great but everyone pretends

You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter…

Now you need to publish every movement
And every single thought to cross your mind
I’m told the Twitterverse is full of rubbish
But most of us are actually quite refined

We validate each other’s insecurities
And brag about the gadgets that we’ve bought
We laugh out loud at every hint of jolliness
And try to self-promote without being caught

You’re no one if you’re not on Twitter…

Follow me on Twitter!

This awesome geek song written and sang by Ben Walker. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

And oh, feel free to add me Twitter!

After the Flame


How many days since we’ve spoken
How many times have you tried
To mend the pieces of my broke-broken heart

Don’t tell me everything’s over
Don’t take the sun from my eye
It’s much too late to be alone

When our love grows old
And the flower gets cold
I will scream out, should I live
Til there is no room to die

When the colors fade, on the world we’ve made
I will keep on trying, long after the flame is dying

Too late, too long to mention
Too wide to keep it inside
This renovation of my wound-wounded soul

You are the wind of adventure
You are the sun in my eye
You are the one who keeps me whole

One of favourite songs by ATB, 9th track from the album “No Silence”.
