Preparing for the Execution

Security is a kind of death- Tennessee Williams

Stop twitching
like you're already hanging
a week to the execution
and you're pre-dying
eyes buzzing
flies bulging

Celebrate your insecurity
live for those
tenuous connections
like leaves
in moments before freefalling
just leap - never care
where you'll land

Because existence
is such a shitty synonym
for living
and I? I want to live
live like I'm on death row
seconds before
the executioner's hand
delivering a lethal
injection of life

and when the needle
passes through I want
to laugh
keep laughing

because life stains
like blood and I want
to live like tomorrow
just isn't coming anymore
because it's the hairsbreadth moments
between insecurity and sunrise
last night and goodbye
that we break free
of this incarcerated life

Oh, stop shackling your own feet
manacled to your house and car
your credit card clicking
like the jailor's keys

Stop placing your face
willingly behind the iron bars

Nevermind, go ahead, exist
like you're walking-dead

Despite my insecurities
I'll grip firmly the trembling hand of death

hey. (: I just joined, my name's ashley. I like different bands, go to my userinfo if you want to see which ones. I just got the new nine inch nails cd, and its great. I definetly recommend it to any fans.


this song is so pretty. so I'll post the lyrics.


'right where it belongs' by nine inch nails


see the animal in his cage that you built
are you sure what side you're on?
better not look him too closely in the eye
are you sure what side of the glass you are on?
see the safety of the life you have built
everything where it belongs
feel the hollowness inside of your heart
and it's all right where it belongs


what if everything around you
isn't quite as it seems?
what if all the world you think you know
is an elaborate dream?
and if you look at your reflection
is it all you want it to be?
what if you could look right through the cracks
would you find yourself, find yourself afraid to see?


what if all the world's inside of your head?
just creations of your own
your devils and your gods all the living and the dead
and you're really all alone
you can live in this illusion
you can choose to believe
you keep looking but you can't find the words
are you hiding in the trees?


what if everything around you
isn't quite as it seems?
what if all the world you used to know
is an elaborate dream?
and if you look at your reflection
is it all you want it to be?
what if you could look right through the cracks
would you find yourself, find yourself afraid to see?

I feel strangely at peace.

I just downloaded "First Song" by Andrew Bird. I've had it on repeat for a while, and I must say, it is quite nice. I plan to buy at least one of his albums. I recommend him to anyone who likes acoustic guitar and kinda folky music, like Neutral Milk Hotel, or Rufus Wainwright but with a guitar not a piano. But yeah, very good.

Oh, and thank you Nate for mentioning Paste magazine. I picked up a copy. Excellent stuff.

Who else is a Beck fan?
There was a new album he released late last March. It's called "Guero"- I just got it, & it's absolutely incredible. Beck is genius.

And one more week until the new Nine Inch Nails album comes out.
May third.
I'm pumped, I dunno about you...

random recommendation:
This has to be one of the most beautiful ballads I've ever heard. Any Cowboy Junkies fans out there who agree with me?
