new NIN song

I bought the new NIN CD [With Teeth]. Out of all the songs the last one is pretty amazing to me. It’s quite the calming, self discovering song.

Here are the lyrics.


see the animal in his cage that you built
are you sure what side you’re on
better not look him too closely in the eye
are you sure what side of the glass you are on

see the safety of the life you have built
everything where it belongs
feel the hollowness inside of your heart
and it’s all…
…right where it belongs

what if everything around you
isn’t quite as it seems
what if all the world you think you know
is an elaborate dream

and if you look at your reflection
is it all you want to be
what if you could look right through the cracks
would you find yourself…
…find yourself afraid to see

what if all the world’s inside of your head
just creations of your own
the devils and the gods all there living in the din
and you’re really all alone

you can live in this illusion
you can choose to believe
you keep looking but you can’t find the words
now you’re hiding in the trees

what if everything around you
isn’t quite as it seems
what if all the world you used to know
is an elaborate dream

and if you look at your reflection
is that all you want to be
what if you could look right through the cracks
would you find yourself…
…find yourself afraid to see

just a note

husband has started to search for a new job. He has gotten spring fever now. After all it has been a couple months since he quit. His b.day is in two days. Me – I am starting to show signs of tendonitis in my ring finger on the right hand. It’s a biTch.

My doctor gave me a note to goto physical therapy and a note for an HR appointment for ergonomic eval on my office desk. I can’t wear a ring on the finger because it just makes me more aware of how much it hurts. Yes I whine.
