Caught in a mirror
Looking through sympathetic eyes
I'll come to the conclusion
That believers are sinners in disguise
And I was blind

So if you ask me
I'll keep saying that I am fine
So just don't ask
And if you see me I'll keep
Flashing that winning smile
Cause that's my mask

Now I don't know what to believe
This girl made of steel with
her heart on her sleeve
Looking for someone
to love and leave
That's me

Caught on the floor now
This bottle in my hand
In the confusion
It seemed the safest place to land
Now I can't stand

Everytime I'd think of you
I'd start to cry well not this time
And if you see me
You will know that the years went by
And they weren't kind

Walking the line on this highway of shame
Tied to the tracks expecting the train
So much to lose and no one to blame but me

That's me.

A group of us were over at my house anxiously awaiting the reports to come in over the news. When we saw Barack's votes jump HUGELY over the 270 required, we couldn't believe it at first. We thought maybe the numbers were just the predictions. Could it be? We were all so excited. We were wiggling in our seats, tearing up, and we could hardly wait for Obama's speech. We saw McCain's speech and heard the booing that came with it. I drove my Girlfriend to her apartment and heard Obama's speech on the way home. I was clapping and cheering and tearing up in the car. When I got home and watched the end of his speech, I could see something I had never seen before in the eyes of post-election gatherings...Hope. Hope in the eyes of the people, tears in the eyes of African-Americans and tears in the eyes of the whitest of Caucasians. There is an unspoken message in the image of Oprah crying on the shoulder of a "white man".

Later that night, when everyone had left and the news was quiet, I continue to keep up with Prop 8 online. I watched as the "Yes" numbers grew faster than the "No" votes. It was hard. It gave that "you win some, you lose some" irony that just depressed me. There is so much those "Yes" voters don't understand. I have listened to Yes voters. I have tried to understand their point of view and even tried to find flaws in my way of thinking. I have found none. Not one Yes voter has come to me with a good, logical argument.

I hope this president can make some good changes in America. I hope the first African-American president can help our economic failures and lead us in new directions. I hope that more and more people will take the blindfold off and see the rights of human beings as equal, rather than judge and persecute based on gender, race, religion, etc. I hope that McCain supporters can listen and grow in this leader. I hope that the structure of America will be built stronger and the foundation of America will become more solid.

I hope.

10 Reasons Why Gay Marriage Will Ruin Society

Posted by KC
June 30, 2006

1. Being gay is not natural. Real Americans ™ always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

2. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

4. Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can’t marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5. Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britany Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

6. Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn’t be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren’t full yet, and the world needs more children.

7. Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

8. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That’s why we have only one religion in America.

9. Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That’s why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven’t adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

"Because Of You"

I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself
Cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did,
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I watched you die
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry in the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I try my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I don't know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
Because of you
I am afraid

Because of you
Because of you

I really don't like being interrupted. Yes, yes, I know I'm quiet. I know I'm shy. But I guess I've always thought of myself, in many situations, as the girl who doesn't say very much, but when I do, it's important. (Unless I'm being silly. Which can be frequent.) Anyway, it's rude. It's annoying. And if it happens often enough, no wonder I'm quiet! *breathe*

First of all, if you are a talker or someone who generally holds the attention of others in a conversation, maybe you should try to pay special attention when the quieter ones talk. If a quiet or shy person actually gets up the nerve and breath to start talking, then take a moment to listen. And don't interrupt. A quiet person talking can be as nerve-racking as public speaking is to you talkers.

If you are someone that generally talks about yourself or things that revolve around you, take a breath and ask someone else about themselves and their day and their life. It's not all about you. It's only all about you to you (and maybe your mother).

If you are calling someone to get an answer to one or several questions, shut the fuck up when the answer (no matter how long) is being given to you. If it's not the answer you want, try asking a different question, or asking the same question a different way. You are asking a favor of someone when you are asking a question. Treat it as such.

In conclusion, don't talk over someone. Don't start talking when someone else is talking unless it is emergent. And if you ARE the one that is talking constantly, maybe you oughta take a breath to let those that aren't get a word in edge-wise.

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I...

Tears stream down on your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I...

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Breathe in, breathe out
Tell me all of your doubts
Everybody bleeds this way, just the same
Breathe in, breathe out
Move on and break down
If everyone goes away, I will stay
We push and pull
And I fall down sometimes
And I’m not letting go
You hold the other line
Cause there is a light in your eyes, in your eyes

Hold on, hold tight
If I’m out of your sight
And everything keeps moving on, moving on
Hold on, hold tight
Make it through another night
In every day there comes a song with the dawn

We push and pull
And I fall down sometimes
And I’m not letting go
You hold the other line
Cause there is a light in your eyes, in your eyes
There is a light in your eyes, in your eyes

Breathe in and breathe out
Breathe in and breathe out
Breathe in and breathe out
Breathe in and breathe out

Look left, look right
To the moon and the night
Everything under the stars is in your arms

Cause there is a light in your eyes, in your eyes
There is a light in your eyes, in your eyes
There is a light in your eyes, in your eyes
