    yeah, so I was going thru my music and I came across this one song by switchfoot, 'oh gravity'. it made me think of what is going on right now on the boards, about why we're all fighting all the time. why some people can't seem to let go of the drama and need to keep it going...

    about how stupid this whole thing is, about how much I want to turn back time, about how stupid it is to keep blaming each other constandly for things we do wrong ourselfs, about how unfair things can be, about how powerles I am when it comes to making things better... it makes me think about we can't fight gravity



    I recommend to download the song btw, it's a really good song...


    There's a fracture in the color bar
    In the backseat of a parked car
    By the liquor store where the streetlight
    Keep you company til the next night

    In the same town, there's the same scar
    In the same glow of the liquor store
    By the freeway, where the headlight
    Keep her company til the next night

    (chorus)
    Oh! Gravity!
    Why can't we seem to keep it together?
    Sons of my enemies,
    Why can't we seem to keep it together?

    In the back room of the pentagon
    There's a thin man with a line drawn
    With a red jaw and a red bite
    Watch the headline on the next night

    (chorus)
    Oh! Gravity!
    Why can't we seem to keep it together?
    Sons of my enemies,
    Why can't we seem to keep it together?
    Why this tragedy?
    Why can't we seem to keep it together?
    Oh! Gravity!
    Why can't we seem to pull it together?

    In the fallout, the fallout
    We found out the hype won't get you through
    We're connected, connected
    I meant it, the hype won't get you through

    Not a big Switchfoot fan but I'll check out the song based on your recommendation.

    We're definitely a family here at SF. Personally, I feel that not many in the world understand us and even fewer are willing to write out how they're feeling. We gotta support each other in spite of disagreements from time to time.

    I definitely have love for every single person on these boards. I don't want to see anything bad happen to ANY of you.

    But if this song sux, OnMyOwn, I'm holding you personally responsible for wasting my time downloading it...lol :biggrin: Just Kidding!

    I won't be around for a month if the rumor I heard about the amount of time I'll be under moderation is true...

    makes me feel tired to be honest
