When the song makes perfect sense...

OK, I admit it. I tend to do stupid things like

- burn both ends of the candle

- double book my schedule

- forget to eat because I'm so focused on getting something accomplished.


And I blame music for it. Why? Because even as I type this, the song "Zzyxx Rd." by Stone Sour plays in my head. and the lyrics go:


I don't know how else to put this - It's taken me so long to do this I'm falling asleep and I can't see straight My muscles feel like a melee - My body's curled in a U-shape I put on my best but I'm still afraid Propped up by lies and promises - Saving my place as life forgets Maybe it's time I saw the world I'm only here for a while - But patience is not my style And I'm so tired that I gotta go What am I supposed to hide now? What am I suppose to do? Did you really think I wouldn't see this through Tell me I should stick around for you Tell me I could have it all I'm still too tired to care and I gotta go I get to go home in one week - But I'm leaving home in three weeks They throw me a bone just to pick me dry

I'm following suit and directions - I crawl up inside for protection I'm told what to do and I don't know why I'm over existing in limbo - I'm over the myths and placebos I don't really mind if I just fade away I'm ready to live with my family - I'm ready to die in obscurity 'Cause I'm so tired that I gotta go Oh, where am I supposed to hide now? What am I supposed to do? You still don't think I'm going see this through Tell me I'm a part of history Tell me I can have it all I'm still too tired to care and I gotta go


and...outro... Disclaimer: I take no credit for this song, Mr. Corey Taylor deserves all credit for the lyrics. But when I play the song in my head, it all makes perfect sense to me. Through the last few days and weeks I been burning both ends of the candle, realizing I forgot to eat... forgot to take my medicine... still to tired to care and I gotta go. But looking at the accomplishments to date with Creation Station
