On Blogger Burnout

I feel burned out today. So I’m listening to The Flaming Lips’ The Soft Bulletin. All I need is to hear Wayne sing “The Gash,” and then I feel all better. Or, at least, obliged to battle on, battle on…

The Gash

Is that gash in your leg
really why you have stopped?
Cause I've noticed all the others,
though they're gashed,
they're still going.

Cause I feel like
the real reason that you're quitting
is that you're admitting that you've lost all the will
to battle on.

Will the fight for our sanity
be the fight of our lives,
now that we've lost all the reasons
that we thought that we had?

Still the battle that we're in
rages on 'til the end.
With explosions, wounds are open,
sights and smells, eyes and noses,
but the thought that went unspoken
was understanding that you're broken…

Still the last volunteer battles on, battles on, battles on...
