TRUTH AND PERFECT IMPERFECTIONS

DescartesIf you have followed my blog, you know where I stand on that elusive word truth. If not, well, it’s peppered throughout that I think truth is merely a matter of dates because we often equate it to subjective material, but that if something is actually true it should be constantly and consistently the same through time. It’s my understanding that Plato was the first to determine that truth should be constant–correct me if I’m wrong.

At any rate, the attached thought paper was crafted by the random misfirings of an undergraduate philosophy student who thought she was being witty (ahem…me, being a smart ass) attempting to produce a constructive mediation while studying Rene Descartes. I realize that my conclusion is reaching–it was not meant to be a formal argument or dissertation by any means–just thoughts about something I had read. In hindsight, I now wish I would have at least notated what I was reading more specifically.

Descarte Mediations-Truth & Perfect Imperfections

During that period of my journey I also spent a lot of time devoting lyrical content to those particular metaphysical thoughts swimming around in my head. Most of the early stuff with The Others is a trifecta of sorts, incorporating vampiric themes and philosophy with a metaphor weaved into the layers. The song that references the perfect imperfections can be found in The Letting.

Sleep tight for me. I’m gone.

BREATHLESS

Gothic Person MistThe wave of the record, baby
It turns me on
Strum your strings
And bang your drum, all night long

Don’t think you’re foolin’ me baby
I know that game and I came to play

With eyes wide shut
I’ll take your hand
Lay me down, devour me
I’ll follow you anywhere
Just for the night, if you dare

 

Brace yourself
Are you conflicted?
Conflicted, Conflicted

Like a tidal wave
Obeying the moon
The years pass you by
And suddenly, yesterday is in bloom

Youth stolen in the mist
Like long lost lovers
Unfolded in a kiss

When dreams collide
Are you conflicted?
Conflicted
Conflicted

DARKNESS

What do you do
When there’s darkness
Inside of you?

Take me away
Away

The black of night
Sinks in your heart
The fountain of youth
Has left its art

The sun
Scorches your skin
Shadows
Become your Jinn

What do you do
When there’s darkness
Inside of you?

When your blood runs cold
Do you wonder
Has your soul be sold?

Has your soul be sold?

ODE TO BLOG

Oh, blog. I have been neglecting you. Sigh. You have not been my priority lately. You see, time has not been my friend. I have been focused on daydreams, a brainstorm of ideas, drama in the workplace I am slave to, intrigued by riveting plot lines and deep, mysterious characters mesmerizing me over the flat screen, and an entrance essay for graduate school. I wouldn’t say that I have been cheating on you, just…distracted. Yeah, that’s it–distracted.

In the midst of life and everything else, I have been hard-pressed to find something I was compelled to put on these pages. While I have had ideas for other projects, at a profound and exponential rate that even baffles me, I have failed to pay you your proper respects.

Sleep tight! I’m gone…but not for long.


THE LETTING

I’m just a product of universal design
My existence is independent
Of him, the way you define
We are good, as good can be done
Take it or leave it, I really don’t give a damn
This world can
FUCK OFF!
That’s right, you heard me!

Open up those
Pretty little veins
Open up those
Pretty little veins
Here we go again
Can’t fight the urge
To drain
Every last drop

All powerful and all knowing
We’re a perfect imperfection
No end cause created
What we are sowing

Cacophonous screams delight my desire

Open up those
Pretty little veins
Open up those
Pretty little veins
Here we go again
Can’t fight the urge
To drain
Every last drop

No matter
How hard I try
I cannot fight
The urge
To drain
Every last drop

Every last drop!

AS I WAS

Because, sometimes, you just need to keep it simple stupid!

I’ve got nothin’ to offer
Nothing meaningful or profound to say
Yet, they hang on ever whisper
Begging to be swayed

 

 

Remember me
As I was
Remember me
Just because
Remember me
As I was
Remember me just because

I wear a lot of hats
But, not all hats fit
Remember the intellect
Remember the wit

Remember me
As I was
Remember me
Just because
Remember me
As I was
Remember me
Just because
Remember me

You know the drill–Sleep Tight!


UNVEILED

(Spoken word–excerpt from H.P. Lovecraft’s Nemesis)

I feel it

Underneath my skin

Burnin’, burnin’

In my veins

Lift the veil to eternal sin

 

Remnants remain of this soul

The only thing metaphysical

Is the fact that you don’t really know

(Spoken word–excerpt from H.P. Lovecraft’s Nemesis)

Accept who you are

Good and evil

Trades sides

All the time

Change me (whisper)

Go on and change me

Lift the veil

By light of the moon

Begin this fairytale

Go on and change me

Lift the veil

Bein’ bad is so good

Evil doers so easy

Go on and change me

Lift the veil

Close your eyes

Let it sink in your mind

Feel it

Feel it

Feel it

Let your strength take control

Watch yourself become invincible

And become a God

Go on and change me

Lift the veil

By light of the moon

Begin this fairytale

Go on and change me

Lift the veil

Bein’ bad is so good

Evil doers so easy

Go on and change me

Lift the veil

As always–sleep tight!
