forgetting is painful.
but not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering."

when you're a stranger

"…when you're strange
faces come out of the rain
when you're strange
no one remembers your name

people are strange when you're a stranger
faces look ugly when you're alone…"

- from "people are strange" by the doors

sometimes i hear my voice

"…i said sometimes i hear my voice
and it's been here
silent all these years
i've been here
silent all these years…"

my least favorite life

"this is my least favorite life
the one where you fly and i don't
a kiss holds a million deceits
and a lifetime goes up in smoke
this is my least favorite you
who floats far above earth and stone…

the whisper of two broken wings
may be they're yours, maybe they're mine
this is my least favorite life
the one where i'm out of my mind
the one where you are just out of reach
the one where i stay and you fly…"

dance with death

"dance with death
you had to dance with death…
now you're doomed to the sky
always trying to reach a little too high"
