Tracking Santa While Fading Into You...

Lots of interesting updates regarding the Real Original Biker Build-Off; however, I have decided to wait to post those.

For those of you interested in the fat man's path around the world -- here is the official Santa Claus flight Tracker -- I watch it every year. http://www.noradsanta.org/index.php

As it's Christmas Eve day, I am yet realizing again why I am the epitome of "goth"....I find beauty in the pain and sorrow -- as long as I maintain my discreet distance and don't allow myself to get caught in the vaccuum -- which some days I am better at than others.

So on that note, as I am about to depart of my lovely Superstition on this crisp blue, 60 degree Dallas day, I leave you with 3 songs that have just been played on my Launch station that have in their own strange warped way put me in a fantastically upbeat mood:
  • Johnny Cash's remake of Nine Inch Nails: "Hurt" (If you've not seen this video, you must -- it's haunting and beautiful)
  • Mazzy Star: "Fade Into You"
  • Garbage: "I'm Only Happy When It Rains"
Hurt
I hurt myself today
to see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
the only thing that's real
the needle tears a hole
the old familiar sting
try to kill it all away
but I remember everything

what have I become?
my sweetest friend
everyone I know
goes away in the end
and you could have it all
my empire of dirt
I will let you down

I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
upon my liar's chair
full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
beneath the stains of time
the feelings disappear
you are someone else
I am still right here

what have I become?
my sweetest friend
everyone I know
goes away in the end
and you could have it all
my empire of dirt

I will let you down
I will make you hurt

if I could start again
a million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way


Fade Into You
I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that’s true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth

You live your life
You go in shadows
You’ll come apart and you’ll go black
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what’s not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew

A stranger’s light comes on slowly
A stranger’s heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew
Fade into you

Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew
I think it’s strange you never knew


I'm Only Happy When it Rains
I’m only happy when it rains
I’m only happy when it’s complicated
And though I know you can’t appreciate it
I’m only happy when it rains
You know I love it when the news is bad
Why it feels so good to feel so sad
I’m only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me

I’m only happy when it rains
I feel good when things are going wrong
I only listen to the sad, sad songs
I’m only happy when it rains
I only smile in the dark

My only comfort is the night gone black

I didn’t accidentally tell you that
I’m only happy when it rains
You’ll get the message by the time I’m through
When I complain about me and you
I’m only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down...pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me...pour your misery down
Pour your misery down...pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me...pour your misery down
Pour your misery down...pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me...pour your misery down
Pour your misery down...pour
You can keep me company
As long as you don’t care
I’m only happy when it rains


You want to hear about my new obsession
I’m riding high upon a deep depression
I’m only happy when it rains...pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains....pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains...pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains...pour some misery down on me
I’m only happy when it rains...pour some misery down on me...pour some misery down on me...pour some misery down on me...pour some misery down on me
