“Cancer” – My Chemical Romance

A sad song by MCR which reminds you of your loved one whom you’ve lost through Cancer.

Turn away,
If you could get me a drink
Of water ’cause my lips are chapped and faded
Call my aunt Marie
Help her gather all my things
And bury me in all my favorite colors,
My sisters and my brothers, still,
I will not kiss you,
‘Cause the hardest part of this is leaving you.

Now turn away,
‘Cause I’m awful just to see
‘Cause all my hairs abandoned all my body,
Oh, my agony,
Know that I will never marry,
Baby, I’m just soggy from the chemo
But counting down the days to go
It just ain’t living
And I just hope you know

That if you say (if you say)
Goodbye today (goodbye today)
I’d ask you to be true (cause I’d ask you to be true)

‘Cause the hardest part of this is leaving you
‘Cause the hardest part of this is leaving you

….

Take a second or two to ponder on this. While we are happy, at home with roofs on our head, food on the table. Others are suffering, tears in their eyes, heart torn into pieces. Homes crumbled into rubbles, future uncertained. A lesson learnt for all of us. Let’s make love not war, lets pray for peace for all. Let us be strong no matter how much suffering we have to endure.  So, this Eid, let us not forget those in Palestine, Lebanon, and other places, let us not forget that we would have been in the same situation, but maybe luck is in our side. We may be the fortunate one, but for how long?

Once again…

Happy Eid ul Fitri

Welcome to the Black Parade by My Chemical Romance (MCR)
Would you listen to this song? Love the lyrics @ hate it?

When I was a young boy,
My father took me into the city
To see a marching band.
He said,
“Son when you grow up,
will you be the saviour of the broken,
The beaten and the damned?”
He said
“Will you defeat them, your demons,
and all the non believers,
the plans that they have made?”
Because one day I leave you,
A phantom to lead you in the summer,
To join the black parade.”

When I was a young boy,
My father took me into the city
To see a marching band.
He said,
“Son when you grow up,
will you be the saviour of the broken,
The beaten and the damned?”

Sometimes I get the feeling she’s watching over me.
And other times I feel like I should go.
Through it all, the rise and fall,
the bodies in the streets.
When you’re gone we want you all to know
We’ll Carry on,
We’ll Carry on
Though your dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
Carry on
We’ll carry on
And in my heart I cant contain it
The anthem wont explain it.

And we will send you reeling from decimated dreams
Your misery and hate will kill us all
So paint it black and take it back
Lets shout it loud and clear
Do you fight it to the end
We hear the call to
To carry on
We’ll carry on
Though your dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We’ll carry on
And though you’re broken and defeated
You’re weary widow marches on

And on we carry through the fears
Ooh oh ohhhh
Disappointed faces of your peers
Ooh oh ohhhh
Take a look at me cause
I could not care at all
Do or die
You’ll never make me
Cause the world, will never take my heart
You can try, you’ll never break me
Want it all,
I’m gonna play this part
Wont explain or say i’m sorry
I’m not ashamed,
I’m gonna show my scar
You’re the chair, for all the broken
Listen here, because it’s only..
I’m just a man,
I’m not a hero
Just a boy, who’s meant to sing this song
Just a man,
I’m not a hero
I — don’t — care
Carry on
We’ll carry on
Though your dead and gone believe me
Your memory will carry on
We’ll carry on
And though you’re broken and defeated
You’re weary widow marches on
We’ll carry on
We’ll carry on
We’ll carry on
We’ll carry
We’ll carry on

Speech Chain – Peter Denes & Elliot Pinson

Somewhere, Home
Jarrar, Nada A.

Setting: Lebanon
It’s about 3 individuals, Lebanese women, searching for somewhere to call “home”. It touches on these 3 beautiful women’s lives, loss & displacement. A very touching story. A story of love.

Wearing:
Red top & red tie dye Palazzo trousers

(All time favourite really) Loving the colour:
BLACK
Why? Firstly, Black = elegance but at the same time black denotes depression, to me, personally, & black is the color of rebellion, which describes me precisely.

Ups & Downs

Nadal was sent packing in the quarters of the US Open and I have got no one to root for. Oh well, maybe I’ll go for Federer then! I’ve never liked Roddick & James Blake anyway.

On a different note…La, la, la…la , la..la let’s ROCK

However, I’m glad Magni the MAGNIficent Iceman has not been eliminated from ROCK STAR: SUPERNOVA rocker search. Storm Large, ooh how her surname seems to fit her so well (she’s around 6ft tall), has been eliminated. Tommy Lee seems to love her, maybe her boobs has influenced him & clouded his mind! It’s actually a very tight match, all of them sang well and wrote wonderful lyrics, but in my opinion, I don’t think Dilana would or could last. She knows she can perform but she ain’t that creative when it comes to writing lyrics. So, who’s left? Toby the OZ dude, Dilana the extreme chick, Lukas the dark knight and of course Magni the handsome bald one.
I hope Magni will get to front this rock group!

Everything Burns

(Ben Moody ft. Anastacia)

[ANASTACIA]
She sits in her corner
Singing herself to sleep
Wrapped in all of the promises
That no one seems to keep
She no longer cries to herself,
No tears left to wash away
Just diaries of empty pages,
Feelings gone astray
But she will sing

[CHORUS: Ben Moody / Anastacia]
‘Till everything burns
While everyone screams
Burning their lies
Burning my dreams
All of this hate
And all of this pain
I’ll burn it all down
As my anger reigns
‘Till everything burns

[ANASTACIA]
Ooh, oh

[BEN MOODY]
Walking through life unnoticed
Knowing that no one cares
Too consumed in their masquerade
No one sees her there
And still she sings

[CHORUS: Ben Moody / Anastacia]
‘Till everything burns
While everyone screams
Burning their lies
Burning my dreams
All of this hate
And all of this pain
Burn it all down
As my anger reigns

[BEN MOODY / ANASTACIA]
‘Till everything burns
Everything burns
(Everything burns)
Everything burns
Watching it all fade away
(All fade away)
Everyone screams
Everyone screams..
(Watching it all fade away)
Oooh, ooh..
(While everyone screams)
Burning their lies
Burning my dreams
(All of this hate)
And all of this pain
I’ll burn it all down
As my anger reigns
Til everything burns
(Everything burns)
Watching it all fade away
(Oooh, ooh)
(Everything burns)
Watching it all fade away…

currently listening & lovin’ these two songs

Steady, As She Goes

Find yourself a girl, and settle down
Live a simple life in a quiet town

Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes

Your friends have shown a kink in the single life
You’ve had too much to think, now you need a wife

Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
Well here we go again, you’ve found yourself a friend, that knows you well
But no matter what you do, you’ll always feel as though you tripped and fell

So steady as she goes

When you have completed what you thought you had to do
And your blood’s depleted to the point of stable glue

Then you’ll get along
Then you’ll get along

Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
Well here we go again, you’ve found yourself a friend that knows you well
But no matter what you do, it always feels as though you tripped and fell
So steady as she goes
Steady as she goes

Settle for a girl and buckle down
Send it to the crowd that’s gathered round
Settle for a girl and buckle down
Send it to the crowd that’s gathered round

So steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes (steady as she goes)

Steady as she goes
Are you steady now?
Steady as she goes
Are you steady now?
Steady as she goes
Are you steady now?
Steady as she goes
Are you steady now?
Steady as she goes

U2 and Mary J Blige – One

Is it getting better
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You got someone to blameYou say one love, one life (one life)
It’s one need in the night
One love (one love), get to share it
Leaves you darling, if you don’t care for it

Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without

Well it’s too late, tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We’re one, but we’re not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other
One…

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play J####?
To the lepers in your head

Well, did I ask too much, more than a lot?
You gave me nothing, now it’s all I got
We’re one, but we’re not the same
Well we, hurt each other
Then we do it again

You say
Love is a temple
Love is a higher law
Love is a temple
Love is the higher law
You ask me to enter
Well then you make me crawl
And I can’t be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt

One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
Sisters and my
Brothers
One life
But we’re not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other

One…
One love
