My favorite line from a song used to be

“I wish I was like you…easily amused” -Nirvana (All Apologies)

I used to resent people who seemed “Easily amused” as I was not easily amused at all. Exactly it was quite the opposite. Only really drugs and drinking amused me. Now I watch movies, read books, talk to people, post on All of these things amuse me greatly. This line no longer applies to me. Boredom used to be a common theme for me, now I’m easily amused. Feels goood man.

Anyone else feel this line applies/applied to you greatly???


More than just a line –

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses
You been out ridin’ fences for so long now
Oh, you’re a hard one
I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin’ you
Can hurt you somehow

Now, it seems to me some fine things
Have been laid upon your table,
But you only want the ones that you can’t get
Desperado, oh, you ain’t gettin’ no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they’re drivin’ you home

And freedom, oh freedom, well that’s just some people talkin’
Your prison is walking through this world all alone


^(Nirvana lyric) Yeah I can remember pondering on that line

^(Desperado) reminds me of my mid 20’s out in the hills.

But there’s so many songs damn…I mean I might have had a lyric for any occasion but what comes to mind nowaday’s…

The Waterboy’s: Fisherman’s Blues

And I know I will be loosened
From the bonds that hold me fast
And the chains all hung around me
Will fall away at last

Also one that often crosses my mind is…

Eels: Rags to Rags

There’s a spider crawling
on my bathroom mirror
right on top of my right eye
and I can’t help staring back
how did I get this way
take a big look at a living lie
