How do you feel today- Song Editon

.I can give it away every day
I can fly and spend all my seconds
Like they're my last
It's not the past that scares me
Now what a great future this is gonna be
Y-O-L-O, why?
Used to think it was bad
That we were all going mad
But now it's fine to leave
Goodbye, those old things
Carry me through the waves of change
Carry me on the waves of change
I know my place
It's a beautiful thing

On my mind these past few days: the weight of the message, the song's history and its sadness...

A diamond necklace played the pawn
Hand in hand some drummed along, oh
To a handsome man and baton
A blind class aristocracy
Back through the opera glass you see
The pit and the pendulum drawn
Columinated ruins domino

Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
Are you sleeping?

Hung velvet overtaken me
Dim chandelier awaken me
To a song dissolved in the dawn
The music hall a costly bow
The music all is lost for now
To a muted trumpeter swan
Columinated ruins domino

Canvass the town and brush the backdrop
Are you sleeping, Brother John?

Dove nested towers the hour was
Strike the street quicksilver moon
Carriage across the fog
Two-Step to lamp lights cellar tune
The laughs come hard in Auld Lang Syne

The glass was raised, the fired rose
The fullness of the wine, the dim last toasting
While at port adieu or die

A choke of grief heart hardened I
Beyond belief a broken man too tough to cry

Surf's up
Aboard a tidal wave
Come about hard and join
The young and often spring you gave
I heard the word
Wonderful thing
A children's song

Child, child, child, child, child
A child is the father of the man

^ Ya know, I really love that song. It's probably my favorite song he ever wrote. Just the sheer lyricism. And the ending melody is one of the best ending of a song, ever, I love it. I think he used that same melody,outro lines in an outtake song, which I also like. Then I find out, there's even a 67 documentary hosted by Leonard Bernstein, where he plays it on piano. The Schizophrenia like structure of the lyrics, mystical states, LSD, it's really so 60's. The cryptic lyrics may be natural by-product of his mind, like a John Frusiciante song, which I find is similar, or maybe it was done in the cut up method like boroughs, which Bowie admitted using to wrote his songs.

I had minor obsession on her some years ago. But now I don't even listen to her. I supose if I listened to her more, I might get into her again, Sioux soux. She reminds me of Jim Morrison here, her voice, Her phrasing.

Maybe my favorite song from Hendix. But, it's hard to say. He never made a bad one.
It's a catchy tune. A 'earworm' as they call it. And it has reccurred in my mind many times over the years. I think i might have a touch of bipolar, or as it was referred to back in the 60's Manic depression'. Every couple of months, my mood will go up, then down, then up. You know, it's hard being ASD, sometimes, you're emotional system is just all out of whack. And not capable of dealing with life stressors that don't bother other people in the slightest.
