He’s a ghost, he’s a god
He’s a man, he’s a guru
You’re one microscopic cog
In his catastrophic plan
Designed and directed by
His red right hand

 

Today’s deep thought: Love may be an infinite resource, but that doesn’t mean our hearts must be open to everyone and everything. Keep your heart like a clenched fist, impenetrable and ready to strike, if you must. No one has the power to break your heart but you. 

 

Take a little walk to the edge of town
And go across the tracks
Where the viaduct looms
Like a bird of doom
As it shifts and cracks
Where secrets lie in the border fires
In the humming wires
Hey man, you know
You’re never coming back
