You know there are times where you’ve had enough and you just want out. Sometimes you get a choice and all ya have to do is cut the chord and rack up your losses. At other times you don’t get that luxury. Case in point, it’s gotten Goddamn hot here in California in the past couple of weeks. Hey it’s summer, it’s supposed to get warm.
This is more of a repeat of late last summer, happening much earlier. It’s been damn hot, to the point it becomes unbearable to be out in it for extended periods. Even with the heat we’re experiencing now, I’m happy I’m not in Death Valley, Phoenix or Las Vegas (oh how my friends there have tried to get me to move there). That would be downright depressing to be in that kind of heat.
Then there’s things like a country’s leader who takes his people to war. Why can’t we just chalk up our losses and get the fuck out?
I’m thinking that’s what the Future Leaders of the World are thinking too. About the war. It’s like America is stuck in prison now that we know the truth, or at least what we think is the truth about Iraq. Keyword is STUCK. I wish I had the power to stop the insanity. I’m betting you do too.
Musically, I’m diggin on the singers voice when he starts doing his higher pitched thing. There’s very few singers whom I can tolerate with their scream type vocals, but this guy has something that I’ve not heard in most of them… A sense of pitch and an ability to enunciate. Probably most I can’t tolerate most screamo type singers. I also like the shift from a somber mellow to the intense drive. It’s not the most original of concepts but they’re doing it well and it works.
Do you have something you want to get out of?
