    Visions of You…on “Rising above Bedlam”

    “I’m not numbed out anymore
    No longer filled with hate and pain
    No longer drenched in shame
    I’m not numbed out anymore….

    The kingdom of heaven lies inside…”

    DOO DOO DOO DOO DOO (HEARTBREAKER)
    (M. Jagger/K. Richards)

    The po-lice in New York City
    They chased a boy right through the park
    In a case of mistaken identity
    They put a bullet through his heart

    Heart breakers with your forty four
    I wanna tear your world apart
    You heart breaker with your forty four
    I wanna tear your world a part

    A ten year old girl on a street corner
    Sticking needles in her arm
    She died in the dirt of an alleyway
    Her mother said she had no chance, no chance!
    Heart breaker, heart breaker
    She stuck the pins right in her heart
    Heart breaker, a pain maker
    Stole the love right out of you heart

    Oh yeah (doo, doo doo doo doo)
    Oh yeah (doo doo doo, doo doo)
    I wanna tear that word apart

    Oh yeah (doo, doo doo doo doo)
    Oh yeah (doo doo doo doo doo)
    I wanna tear that word apart

    Heart breaker, heart breaker
    You stole the love right out of my heart
    Heart breaker, heart breaker
    I wanna tear your world apart

    Heart breaker, heart breaker
    Stole the love right out, stole the love right out

    Doo, doo doo doo doo doo
    Ah yeah, you shot the kid, he had no chance
    Doo doo, doo doo do
    Ah yeah, Ah yeah, you stuck pins right in her heart
    Doo doo, doo doo do
    You heart breaker, I wanna tear your world apart
    Doo doo, doo doo do……..

    TUBTHUMPING
    Chumbawamba

    We’ll be singing
    When we’re winning
    We’ll be singing

    I get knocked down
    But I get up again
    You’re never going to keep me down

    Pissing the night away

    He drinks a whisky drink
    He drinks a vodka drink
    He drinks a lager drink
    He drinks a cider drink
    He sings the songs that remind him of the good times
    He sings the songs that remind him of the better times:

    “Oh Danny Boy, Danny boy…”

    I get knocked down
    But I get up again
    You’re never going to keep me down

    Pissing the night away

    He drinks a whisky drink
    He drinks a vodka drink
    He drinks a lager drink
    He drinks a cider drink
    He sings the songs that remind him of the good times
    He sings the songs that remind him of the better times:

    “Don’t cry for me next door neighbor…”

    I get knocked down
    But I get up again
    You’re nevre going to keep me down

    We’ll be singing
    When we’re winning
    We’ll be singing

    When I first heard this song it brought back a memory… 1/4 mile from home. 5-6 beers in me that used me as the middle man long enough. Needed to walk down the main street to get home. About 5 PM so everyone was out and on the way home. No trees to run behind on the main street *LOL* 1/4 mile to go. Thought I was dieing. When I tried to hurry my pace, I would hurt all the more. Finally I am at the door. Struggle to fit the key in the door. Ohh no I am on the 3rd floor was my thought. Every step was pain. I made it and thus comes the words found in that song… pissin the night away…pissin the night away
    Not sure if the energy drain from being the middle man for a 6 pack or the walk home with the need to stop being the middle man… Next I remember was waking up after 12 noon the next day. Such lessons don’t sink in till years later. No more playing the middle man for me. Open a bottle today and I would bypass me…dump it straight in the flusher No More Middle Man for me *LOL* :celebrate :band

    Jane’s Addiction — I’m not an Addict (the active addict’s theme song)

    Fiona Apple’s album “When the Pawn” is a good example of the inner workings of an addictive personality, and in addition, many of the songs are about addictions (love addictions, dark obssessions and ghosts of the past, anorexia (which IS an addiction), drugs)

    Courtney Love — Sunset Strip (also another theme song of the active addict)

    The problem with some of those songs though ….. those are the ones I used to listen to in college when the drug use was way fun…. LOVE Pink Floyd. But smoked a lot of pot while listening.

    Don’t some of those songs bring good memories? I find it dangerous to have good memories about using. Makes me think I can go back…
