Musical Interlude: How to Love Problems Like Ice Cream

Howdy to all our O Society people. Yes, I am MIA at the moment. Hearing teachings from the lamas and monks. Meditating. Reading. Realizations. Visions. Super hero empowerments. The usual.

Here’s some heavy lifting:

Transforming Problems Into Happiness – Lama Zopa Rinpoche

The Method to Transform a Suffering Life into Happiness – Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Here’s what is on the jukebox these days. Some might seem incongruous with a spiritual path. Yet we use these in a practice of transmuting our primal emotions -such as fear and anger, guilt and shame, sex and violence, even the loss and pain of a broken heart – into positive energy and action.

Or for just banging your head…

Sober

There’s a shadow just behind me,
Shrouding every step I take,
Making every promise empty,
Pointing every finger at me.
Waiting like a stalking butler
Who upon the finger rests.
Murder now the path of “must we”
Just because the son has come.

Jesus, won’t you fucking whistle
Something but the past is done?
Jesus, won’t you fucking whistle
Something but the past is done?

Why can’t we not be sober?
I just want to start this over.
Why can’t we drink forever?
I just want to start this over.

I am just a worthless liar.
I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you.
I will chew it up and leave,
I will work to elevate you
Just enough to bring you down.

Mother Mary, won’t you whisper
Something but the past is done?
Mother Mary, won’t you whisper
Something but the past is done?

Why can’t we not be sober?
I just want to start this over.
Why can’t we sleep forever?
I just want to start this over.

I am just a worthless liar.
I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you.
I will chew it up and leave,
Trust me

Why can’t we not be sober?
I just want to start things over.
Why can’t we sleep forever?
I just want to start this over.

I want what I want

Vicarious

Eye on the TV
‘Cause tragedy thrills me.
Whatever flavour
It happens to be like:
“Killed by the husband”,
“Drowned by the ocean”,
“Shot by his own son”,
“She used a poison in his tea”,
“And kissed him goodbye”.
That’s my kind of story.
It’s no fun ’til someone dies.Don’t look at me like
I am a monster.
Frown out your one face
But with the other.
Stare like a junkie
Into the TV.
Stare like a zombie
While the mother
Holds her child,
Watches him die
Hands to the sky,
Crying, “Why, oh, why?”‘Cause I need to watch things die from a distance.
Vicariously I live while the whole world dies.You all need it too.
Don’t lie.Why can’t we just admit it?
Why can’t we just admit it?We won’t give pause until the blood is flowing.
Neither the brave nor bold
Will write us the story, so,
We won’t give pause until the blood is flowing.I need to watch things die from a good safe distance.
Vicariously I live while the whole world dies.You all feel the same.
So, why can’t we just admit it?

Blood like rain come down.
Drum on grave and ground.

Part vampire, part warrior.
Carnivore and voyeur.
Stare at the transmittal.
Sing to the death rattle.

La, la, la, la, la, la, la-lie.

Credulous at best, your desire to believe in angels in the hearts of men.
Pull your head on out your hippie haze and give a listen.
Shouldn’t have to say it all again.

The universe is hostile, so impersonal.
Devour to survive.
So it is. So it’s always been.

We all feed on tragedy.
It’s like blood to a vampire.

Vicariously I live while the whole world dies.
Much better you than I.

Alğa

Million days and nights before
When only tarpans ruled this world
Our nomad fathers took it in their handsWarm from coddling sun by day
Cooled by sea breathing by night
It is loved so hard that our heart just lightNo one can take our land from us, it is our home
And no one can decide for us, leave us all alone
We will hold arms to death until the last of us stands still
We will destroy and crush all foes, we’ll shout ‘Alğa!’ and killViolet lilacs fill the woods
Meadows full of grass and fruits
Mountain peaks of limestone pierce the blue, blue skyStormy waves crash on the rocks
Grapes entwine the antic scree
How can one not love this land of sun and sea?No one can take our land from us, it is our home
And no one can decide for us, leave us all alone
We will hold arms to death until the last of us stands still
We will destroy and crush all foes, we’ll shout ‘Alğa!’ and killspoken:
How dare you godless bastards step on my land?
How dare you touch my daughters and sons?
These will be your last steps, unless you turn
Put your two-headed eagle into your ass and runNo one can take our land from us, it is our home
And no one can decide for us, leave us all alone
We will hold arms to death until the last of us stands still
We will destroy and crush all foes, we’ll shout ‘Alğa!’ and kill

I Am Your Cancer

I wanna see you on the floor
Begging for it all to stop
Behind that pretty mask you show
There’s nothing worth fighting for

You’re nothing but a broken child
Who loves to cross the line
Well, I’m here to tell you
I won’t be the one crying

I wanna see you beaten down
A toy I lost and never found
Behind those words you pronounce
Your spirit’s falling to the ground

You’re nothing but a broken soul
Terrified to the core
Well, I’m here to tell you
I won’t be the one crying

I know you’ll lose your way
Behind your fake goodbyes
I’ll turn my face away
Between the truth and the lies

[Chorus]
I am your cancer
I am your cancer
I am your road to disaster
The disease that eats you up is what I am
I am your cancer
I am your cancer
I am your road to disaster
The disease that eats you up is what I am

Never See the Light

Friend of mine, 25 old
You left the world, confused and alone
Your heart’s still here, you left with us
You wanted it back
So the fight would arise

My talented one, fingers of gold
Sympathies arise, cry no more
My talented one, fingers of gold
Sympathies arise, cry no more

Gone from us while we live, (we see you)
For you’ll never see the light
We had to give (this won’t fade)
The world won’t be the same
Without you here (we feel you)
For you’ll never see the light
We had prepared

Friend of mine, 25 old
You left the world, confused and alone
Your heart’s still here, you left with us
You wanted it back
So the fight would arise

My talented one, fingers of gold
Sympathies arise, cry no more
My talented one, fingers of gold
Sympathies arise, cry no more

Gone from us while we live, (we see you)
For you’ll never see the light
We had to give (this won’t fade)
The world won’t be the same
Without you here (we feel you)
For you’ll never see the light
We had prepared

Sorry For It All

This song is not for you
It’s for everything I wish to be
Behind closed doors is where I stand
The cold wind blows
One more chanceAnd you are sorry for it all
And I care nothing is my fault
You’re leaving as I said
Nothing to you
As I said
Nothing to youOf all the things to say, my love, won’t you listen to me
When I say
It takes one more chance to survive
And to say that it’d be easy
That’s a lie

When you are sorry for it all
And I care nothing is my fault
You’re leaving as I said
Nothing to you
As I said
Nothing to you

They’ve told me, mother, who I am
I am
So hold me and promise that I can
So hold me forever, never change
Never change
So hold me and never

It takes one more chance to survive
Now to say that that’d be easy
That’s fine

When you are sorry for it all
And I care nothing is my fault
You’re leaving as I said
Nothing to you
As I said
Nothing to you
