Games Never Played

This was floating around in the cavity formerly known as my skull this morning....

The lyrics don't apply much at the moment, but they would....because I really wouldn't love again if I lost my beloved. I wouldn't pretend that anyone else would ever measure up.  Enough said. 

As for the video? I just really dig it.  The coloring, the woman in the center of the clock...the freeze frames and slo-mo with the billowing satin...just gorgeous. Kind of says that TIME will knock you on your ass if you don't pay attention. That, I can most certainly attest to.  

Time, wasted, spent, and otherwise squandered, is also going to knock not only our government, but our country on their collective ass, if something or someone doesn't give. At this point, I don't even care which side caves, because to know that, in the meantime, during this temper tantrum of astronomical proportions, the men and women who fight across the globe to keep this "country" safe are dying and then being told "Hey, guess what?  YOU get to foot the bill!!!"  Not only do they have to sacrifice their entire existence, they get to leave behind families who then get to pick up the pieces with no help from the entity for which the person died to begin with....and yet the whiny little elected officials continue to regale us with tales of woe about how THEY need their checks, too.  Puke.  Fuck that. And........Puke. 

Europe is sounding really, really attractive about now.  Canada, as my husband suggested, not so much. Entirely TOO FUCKING COLD there....would be like staying here.  Somewhere Mediterranean in nature...Greece, Sicily.....that'd be fairly sweet as well.  

There's corruption, greed, lying and bullshit, no matter where you go, so really, dreaming of leaving is pretty much senseless if the only reason is to get away with America's brand of bullshit.  You can dream. You can fight the good fight. You can stand up for what you know to be right and true...but in the end....

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know...

Life is ours, we live it our way
