    Good morning Autista peeps. I find myself looking once again on this cold dreary morning for the perfect Autistic song. One we can all connect with. Could their be such a song? Do you know of one? Does anyone want to get together with me to try and write one? I think we need a theme song. I can only try to come up with the words. I can’t play an instrument.

    I really like, I am a rock I am an island . But he looses us several places. The song kinda reminds me of a child closing their eyes and pretending the world had gone away. Don’t we all have memories of that? I wonder if NT’s have those memories.

    “If I never would have loved. I never would have have cried.”
    Not true, we cry because we long for love. We cry because of our aloneness.

    “I have no need of friendship.”
    Most of us would say that is not true. We need people and we don’t want to go it alone. We just don’t know how. It seems there is no room for us in NT land. We constantly make blunders that they find inexcusable and oftentimes they don’t even tell us what our blunder was. I guess we aren’t even worth the bother to some of them.

    I don’t want our theme song to be a crying in your beer song, but a funny, happy, cool song like Simon and Garfunkel’s song “I am a Rock.”
    Anyone with me? If y’all aren’t interested then I won’t proceed. But I think it could be fun.

    My first thought was "Here we come, walking down the street. Get the funniest looks from everyone we meet." :)

    "Aspies" is also a 2 syllable word.

    But not every person on spectrum is "aspie."

    From the point of view of my cats, I believe I'd be identified
    as a monkey-thing. Cats appreciate the efforts of the human/hooman/monkey thing.
    They like to be petted with the monkey finger-stick things.

    That is why I specified Autistic and not Aspie. I want all of us in the theme song.

    That's a 3 syllable word.
    Harder to work with.

    Easier to fit a two syllable word in.
    Maybe "autie.".....

    If that word appeals to you.

    okay but I would rather use the tune of I am a Rock by Simon and Garfunkle than the Monkeys... But hey. That's just me. Whatever works best for the Auties. ;) Can you try the Simon and Garfunkle tune? Or do y'all think the Monkeys is best? I can go either way.

    Thinking out loud....

    I have my internet, my book, my special interests, hiding in my room. I touch no one and no one touches me.
    I am alone, looking out my window at the people down below. I am a rock. I am an island.

    I built walls. a fortress deep and wide that none may penetrate. I need friendship even with the pain, but I am a rock. I am an island.

    Lets talk of love. I have heard this word. What does it mean? How do you obtain it? Can I find love on my island. This rock feels pain and this island cries.

    Its laughter and loving make me wonder... where am I on this spectrum?
    Auties love care deeply... looking out our windows at the laughter down below, but to join in seems to cause pain for everyone. Is it love to refrain? Is it selfish to attempt to join in?
    I am alone. I am a rock. I am an Island. but this rock feels pain and this island cries.

    I can't get away from the beer drinking crying in your beer type of song. I need something positive. I know there are lots. Any ideas to get out of this funk?

    lyrics
    The Boxer
    Simon & Garfunkel
    I am just a poor boy
    Though my story's seldom told
    I have squandered my resistance
    For a pocket full of mumbles, such are promises
    All lies and jests
    Still a man hears what he wants to hear
    And disregards the rest

    When I left my home and my family
    I was no more than a boy
    In the company of strangers
    In the quiet of the railway station
    Running scared,
    Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
    Where the ragged people go
    Looking for the places
    Only they would know

    Lie la lie, lie la la la lie lie
    Lie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lie

    Asking only workman's wages
    I come looking for a job
    But I get no offers
    Just a come-on from the whores
    On Seventh Avenue
    I do declare
    There were times when I was so lonesome
    I took some comfort there, le le le le le le le

    Lie la lie, lie la la la lie lie
    Lie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lie

    Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
    And wishing I was gone
    Going home
    Where the New York City winters
    Aren't bleeding me
    Leading me
    Going home

    In the clearing stands a boxer
    And a fighter by his trade
    And he carries the reminders
    Of ev'ry glove that laid him down
    Or cut him till he cried out
    In his anger and his shame
    "I am leaving, I am leaving"
    But the fighter still remains, mmm mmm

    I don't really like that for our theme song. Too depressing. I was hoping we could have something that has something positive in it.

    To me it does - it says all we've gone through - but we're the boxer and the fighter still remains, even after all the scars and lies we keep fighting.

    We can add the words you especially like to this. We are stronger than we realize. We are fighters and boxers for sure. We keep getting up anyway. Put a string of words together you especially like and post them. Some musically inclined person will sing it with their guitar. or maybe we can for a band and sing it. :)
