Let Down

So... there was lots of Radiohead yesterday. This is the last of it. Let Down. The original and two covers. The piano instrumental is particularly beautiful. Almost uplifting but just falling short, and sinking back into it's own beautiful misery. Has there ever been a song title which more perfectly summed up how I'm feeling right now? Not even a real reason for the feeling. Just sometimes there's too much. Sometimes there's too little. There's a vacuum or there's a reason. There's a beating heart, or there's darkness. There's blood and tears, or there's the end of the fight. Know what album title I've always liked? The Postal Service's... it was called Give Up, for those of you who didn't know. Just that. Give Up. Give Up. Give up to what? Give up hope? Give up the fight? What?... anyways, I feel like giving up. Don't even know what. Just. Anything. Everything.

Someday, art will save us from the flames.

Being happy is tougher - and cooler." - Thom Yorke
