I've made the mistake of buying a novel Saterday. Not that a book is a bad thing, it's just that now I want to read it. All the time. Which also isn't a bad thing. Except that I still have homework and pretend I have a life. Really my life is wandering the campus looking for people to talk too. Which is why I bought the book in the first place. Sure I read other stuff, lot's of stuff considering I'm a college student. I've pretty much allready knocked off most of the Old Testament. It's just that I wanted to find myself lost in a book. A book where I don't have to read and think at the same time. I just wanted to unfold the pages and find myself in someone else's world. Well now Nick Hornby has me lost in four people's world's. It's The Virgin Suicides meets the Breakfast Club. I tried looking back the last few months to count how much of my life has been spent between the pages, but I couldn't figure it out. I couldn't even count the number of books I've read since leaving school last year. Is all that reading really worth it if you can't remember all the books you've read? I guess so, its fun to get lost in another world sometimes.
Swing, like a chariot At the trupet call When were all unsaved, swing Like a wrecking ball Like the heart of god What a mystery Filled with the wedding feast For the snakes and bees With the angel teeth, swing Come and carry us Come and marry us To the blushing circus king Dance like elephants as he comes to us through a fiery golden rain With a violin and a song to sing as he brings for us our wings Now he's one of us, plays the tambourine Breaks the bread for us and sings.
Page France, I'm now in love.
Genius. Simple. Amazing.
Fire come and carry us Make us shine or make us rust Tell us that you care for us Let your body stand with us Or let our rags be turned to dust Chariot you swing for us We think that you can carry all of us So we will become a happy ending
