[music |Disturbed "Land of Confusion"]

Yeah, it's 4:15 am. No one is online. I'm still up. This is after I got up at 6 am the day before. Sleep would be nice, I guess. So effing exhausted, in every other way, but I don't wanna sleep. It's so... pointless. You just wake up in the same place you were the night before and nothing but time has changed. You still feel tired, especially when you wake up. I'm pretty awake now, so why sleep? Who knows. I wanted to play guitar tonight until my fingers bled. I stopped though, cuz I can't even will myself to play that long. Sad but true as Metallica says. Ugh. I guess I should go to bed just to please the parental units. They already think I'm out like, molesting children in the morning or something. Wow, I can hardly see now. I'm sad, at the same time confident, distraught, wired but also tired, and I have a massive headache. Hooray for explosions in my sinus cavity! Maybe I shoulda played until my fingertips bled. That woulda been METAL. This whole entry is really random. I guess if you read it you'll think I'm insane. Now my neck hurts. Jesus christ, I feel old. Watch out, 17 hits you hard apparently. I love her. Yeah, you saw that coming eventually. I do. Forever. No one else. Why do they punch holes in old card decks and sell them for a dollar? What is the use for the holes? And why is Mountain Dew called a dew? It's not a dew, it's a freaking carbonated liquid. This song makes a lot of sense. We just gotta fight with what we have and the hand we've been dealt. So thank you Phil Collins and... the other assorted members of Genesis, who I cannot name, for giving us this song. Also, a thank you to Disturbed for making it metal and covering it on their album that isn't out yet that I already have. Silly internet and cd makers. I beat you! haha! Fuck... Yeah. Fuck everyone else. Phil Collins tells us we're gonna make it right, so I will. Phil for president. Or... something? I dunno... so random. Can't think straight. Post lyrics now. Peace /\m/\

"Land of Confusion" by Genesis
I must’ve dreamed a thousand dreams
Been haunted by a million screams
But I can hear the marching feet
They’re moving into the street.

Now did you read the news today
They say the danger’s gone away
But I can see the fire’s still alight
There burning into the night.

There’s too many men
Too many people
Making too many problems
And not much love to go round
Can’t you see
This is a land of confusion.

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth living in.

Ooh superman where are you now
When everything’s gone wrong somehow
The men of steel, the men of power
Are losing control by the hour.

This is the time
This is the place
So we look for the future
But there’s not much love to go round
Tell me why, this is a land of confusion.

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth living in.

I remember long ago -
Ooh when the sun was shining
Yes and the stars were bright
All through the night
And the sound of your laughter
As I held you tight
So long ago -

I won’t be coming home tonight
My generation will put it right
We’re not just making promises
That we know, we’ll never keep.

Too many men
There’s too many people
Making too many problems
And not much love to go round
Can’t you see
This is a land of confusion.

Now this is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth fighting for.

This is the world we live in
And these are the names we’re given
Stand up and let’s start showing
Just where our lives are going to.
