"Time Stand Still"

I turn my back to the wind
To catch my breath
Before I start off again.
Driven on without a moment to spend
To pass an evening with a drink and a friend

I let my skin get too thin
I'd like to pause
No matter what I pretend
Like some pilgrim
Who learns to transcend
Learns to live as if each step was the end

(Time stand still)
I'm not looking back
But I want to look around me now
(Time stand still)
See more of the people and the places that surround me now
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Experience slips away
Experience slips away

I turn my face to the sun
Close my eyes
Let my defences down
All those wounds that I can't get unwound

I let my past go too fast
No time to pause
If I could slow it all down
Like some captain, whose ship runs aground
I can wait until the tide comes around

(Time stand still)
I'm not looking back
But I want to look around me now
(Time stand still)
See more of the people and the places that surround me now
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each impression a little bit stronger
Freeze this motion a little bit longer
The innocence slips away
The innocence slips away...

Summer's going fast, nights growing colder
Children growing up, old friends growing older
Freeze this moment a little bit longer
Make each sensation a little bit stronger
Experience slips away
Experience slips away...
The innocence slips away

"Faithless"

I don't have faith in faith
I don't believe in belief
You can call me faithless
I still cling to hope
And I believe in love
And that's faith enough for me

A few more ramblings from Elwood ...


He’s not afraid of your judgement
He knows of horrors worse than your Hell
He’s a little bit afraid of dying
But he’s a lot more afraid of your lying



anarchist reactionary running-dog revisionist
hindu muslim catholic creation/evolutionist
rational romantic mystic cynical idealist
minimal expressionist post-modern neo-symbolist
armchair rocket scientist graffiti existentialist
deconstruction primitive performance photo-realist
be-bop or a one-drop or a hip-hop lite-pop-metallist
gold adult contemporary urban country capitalist



Paul Theroux’s definition of a cynic is a disappointed idealist.

Sad .... so very sad to dismiss the thread's topic person like this when his heart is full of love.

Two L's in Ellwood. I'm sure he scans the posts here frequently to see what the dinosaur hunters have to say about him. Why not go play your drums?

You can surrender without a prayer
But never really pray;
Pray without surrender

I don't want to burst your bumper fish, but I'll do just fine without your thoughts. Peddle those vibes at the Tractor Pull :)

Hold your Fire

Hold your fire --
Keep it burning bright
Hold the flame
'til the dream ignites --
A spirit with a vision
Is a dream with a mission

This reminds me of my year at Texas A&M (Yes I went 1 year and only 1 year, I was not asked back as I didn't let school get in the way of my education while I was there :) )
Anyways for those who are not in the know, they have a large bonfire (or used to) that the student body cut and stacked, dorms signed up to be bonfire buddies, (Guys dorm with the Girls Dorm) and then you gave and received presents. So I got a six pack of beer with a card with the above lyrics.

Pariah dogs and wandering madmen
Barking at strangers and speaking in tongues
The ebb and flow of tidal fortune
Electrical changes are charging up the dawn

Its a far cry from the world we thought we'd inherit
Its a far cry from the way we thought we'd share it
You can almost feel the current flowing
You can almost see the circuits blowing

One day I feel I'm on top of the world
And the next it's falling in on me
I can get back on, I can get back on

One day I feel Im ahead of the wheel
And the next it's rolling over me
I can get back on, I can get back on
