    Mood: The Usual

    One song can spark a moment,
    One flower can wake the dream.
    One tree can start a forest,
    One bird can herald spring.

    One smile begins a friendship,
    One handclasp lifts a soul.
    One star can guide a ship at sea,
    One word can frame the goal.

    One vote can change a nation,
    One sunbeam lights a room
    One candle wipes out darkness,
    One laugh will conquer gloom.

    One step must start each journey.
    One word must start each prayer.
    One hope will raise our spirits,
    One touch can show you care

    One voice can speak with wisdom,
    One heart can know what's true,
    One life can make a difference,
    You see, it's up to you!

    Mood: The Usual

    Frost

    Someone painted pictures on my
    Window pane last night—
    Willow trees with trailing boughs
    And flowers, frosty white,
    And lovely crystal butterflies;
    But when the morning sun
    Touched them with its golden beams,
    They vanished one by one!

    Mood: The Usual

    Eldorado

    Gaily bedight,
    A gallant knight,
    In sunshine and in shadow,
    Had journeyed long,
    Singing a song,
    In search of Eldorado.

    But he grew old-
    This knight so bold-
    And o'er his heart a shadow
    Fell as he found
    No spot of ground
    That looked like Eldorado.

    And, as his strength
    Failed him at length,
    He met a pilgrim shadow-
    "Shadow," said he,
    "Where can it be-
    This land of Eldorado?"

    "Over the Mountains
    Of the Moon,
    Down the Valley of the Shadow,
    Ride, boldly ride,"
    The shade replied-
    "If you seek for Eldorado!"

    Mood: The Usual

    "I close my eyes and I see a freak, I think it's me and I'm afraid to speak
    I keep on going from week to weakness way out in a line.... I wonder where were all going, I'm homesick for your primal knowing
    I wonder why the wind keeps blowing you through my mind."

    "Every thought that I repent,
    There's another chip you haven't spent.
    And you're cashing them all in.
    Where do we begin, to get clean again.
    Can we get clean again.

    I walk home alone with you, in the mood you're born into.
    Sometimes you let me in, and I take it on the chin.
    I can't get clean again. I wannna know, can we get clean again,
    The God of Wine comes crashing through the headlights of a car that
    Took you farther than you thought you'd ever want to go.
    We can't get back again.
    You can't get back again.
    She takes a drink and then she waits,
    The alcohol it permeates.
    And soon the cells give way, and cancels out the day.

    ...And the siren's song that is your madness,
    Holds a truth I can't erase, All alone on your face."



    Just some great lines from Third Eye Blind songs. Good stuff.

    Mood: giddy

    "Spectacular! Spectacular!
    No words in the vernacular
    Can describe this great event
    You'll be dumb with wonderment"

    My brother's gonna come down for a visit. Yay!
    The only things that keep running through my head are funny outtakes from my favorite shows and great, lighthearted songs.

    "The sun is a mass of incandescent gas"

    We're gonna have fun.

    Mood: Sigh...

    Me And Bobby Mcgee - Janis Joplin
    Under The Bridge - Red Hot Chilli Peppers
    Niteclub - Old 97's
    Gattsu - Susumu Hirasawa
    Nights Like These - Lucero
    Adieu - The Seatbelts
    Gold Day - Sparklehorse
    Malaguena Salerosa - Chingon
    Snow - Red Hot Chilli Peppers


    That's the mood I'm in right now. And I wish I'd snap out of it.

    Mood: Dreaming. Ceasless dreaming

    "'Why do most men commit to affairs that result in bloodshed? Isn't that what you asked me during the hunt? It is true, men posess a side that is barbarous as you have observed. But it is a double-edged sword. It can be a tool used for winning precious things as well as protecting them.'

    'Precious things? Like friendship and love?'

    'For some men, these are the most precious. But I believe that beneath them, there is something even more precious than these. They are driven to pursue it, and they pursue it solely for their own sake, no other.'

    'Their dream.'

    'One man's dream can hold dominion over the entire world, for one who dedicates his life to the forging of a single sword. While many can pursue their dreams in solitude, other dreams are like great storms blowing hundreds even thousands of dreams apart in their wake. Dreams breathe life into men, and can cage them in suffering. Men live and die by their dreams, but long after they've been abandoned, they still smolder deep in men's hearts. Some see nothing more than life and death. They are dead, for they have no dreams.'"

    Mood: Don't ask. few will know it

    The rain may never fall 'til after sundown,
    By nine PM the moonlight must appear.
    In short, there's simply not,
    A more congenial spot
    For happily ever aftering than here
    In Midland land.

    Mood: Just that kind of mood

    -Who are you?
    +Who is but the form following the function of what, and what I am is a man in a mask.
    -Oh, I can see that.
    +Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation, I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is. But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace sobriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona.

    Voila! In view a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding, vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

    The only verdict is vengeance, a vendetta held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

    Hee Hee. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose. So let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

    -Are you, like, a crazy person?
    +I am quite sure they will say so. But to whom, might I ask, am I speaking?
    -I'm Evey.
    +Evey? E-v. Of course you are.
    -What does that mean?
    +It means that I, like God, do not play with dice and do not believe in coincidence.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
