Ouch...papercuts hurt!

hey guys, i'm back...won't b a very insightfull post today because my brain just isn't working BUT i'm here either way...

as most of you know by now, i'm in a competition to win tickets to the linkin park concert in my capital city and not only that but those tickets also involve meeting the band members...

i can easily say that since febuary 2001 i hav loved linkin park.
their cd's are perminantly in my car and i have all bar one of their albums on my ipod...Chester Bennington (the lead singer) is one of my celebrity crushes and with nearly all their songs i can place as a background music in my head or just a time specific song to my life, my own personal soundtrack if you will...

sure i realise they arn't everyones cup of tea but if you actually read the lyrics behind the songs u can see a deeper side of me i supose,...a side that alot of people don't have the opportunity or privilage (depending on the circumstances) to see...

take the song 'papercut' for example...it's the first song from their first album...released on 24th october 2000  which i didn't end up getting till a boy with a crush on me at school gave me for my 19th birthday...
the lyrics are as follows...:



Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head

It's like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face watches every time I lie
A face that laughs every time I fall
{And watches everything}
So I know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is here in me, right underneath my skin

It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

I know I've got a face in me
Points out all my mistakes to me
You've got a face on the inside too
Your paranoia's probably worse
I don't know what set me off first but I know what I can't stand
Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is
I can't add up to what you can

But everybody has a face that they hold inside
A face that awakes when they close my eyes
A face watches every time they lie
A face that laughs every time they fall
(And watches everything)
So you know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is watching you too right inside your skin

It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath the skin

It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

The face inside is right beneath your skin
The face inside is right beneath your skin
The face inside is right beneath your skin

The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me
The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me

(the sun) It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
(I feel the light betray me) It's like the face inside is right beneath the skin

(the sun)It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
(I feel the light betray me)It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
(the sun)It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin 
ok now whatever you may be thinking...i'm sure some of this generation that are teenagers now or even those ppl who don't know me might say it's somewhat of an 'emo' or 'alternative' kind of song...but guess what. i still stand by the fact that the term 'emo' is a misconception...
to me this song 'papercut' is pretty much saying well i make mistakes and i'm aware of whats going on but guess what too...so do u...
what ppl need to realise is that i have always had so much going on in this head of mine that yeah i speak without thinking or say completely random things...BUT GUESS WHAT .... THATS JUST WHO I FUCKING AM!!! 
i am different, i am weird, yeah my haircuts do tend   to be weird or boyish, my clothes arn't all designer     label, i may act wacky and random...but i know i can  fall back on like maybe 5 people at most who simply   'get me'  if your not one of those people, it doesn't mean you can't be...it just means that these people didn't judge me to be anyone apart from who i am... so get over it already...
i know i have an addictive personality, i tend to get      over excited over things or really passionate over      things, but if u can't handle the heat, get the hell out of the freaking fire already...
well i've had my say for today...laundry hanging out is now calling me before i go watch tv or read before     work... well good bye ... hope to blog again soon as i've been pretty lazy with letting u into me wonderfull         world of me!

  1. By chance we meet on twitter, But there are too many issue wrong with the world we call our own, we each need to stand up and take responsibility for our actions, take an active role in giving back, of our time, our funds, our effort and ourselves, as one we are a drop, together we make waves and contribute to make this world a better place> What have you done today to help someone else?
