Hurt
Johnny Cash Lyrics


I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real

The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become
My sweetest friend?
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end

And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair

Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become
My sweetest friend?
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end

And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I will keep myself
I would find a way

Soli Deogloria

What is the chief end of man ?

Man's chief end is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.


There is a reason why there is something rather than nothing and it is predicated on the uncaused, non contingent, first cause of all contingency...


God


Seek Christ Jesus the Redeemer

Acts

And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.  And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.  And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
Revelation 10:9‭-‬11

John the Baptist braught the good news that was sweet as honey
 Johnny Cash braught the bitter news, make way for the return of the King

Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
Revelation 1:7

Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?  He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.
John 1:22‭-‬23

Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.  Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
Psalms 2:5‭, ‬12

Psalms 2:5 essentially equals Johnny Cash, by using the book of revelation, that was written by John the apostle, that is to prophecy before many people and nations and kings, and is doing that currently with the number one best selling book, the Bible. That little book.

And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.   Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.   And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
Revelation 2:21‭-‬23

"Until things start to change you'll never see me in a suite of white" - Johnny Cash the man in black.

 John go do my will, tell em Gods gonna cut em down when the man comes around and when that trumpet sounds there ain't no grave that'll keep the dead in Christ down and when they rise rise out of the ground those that are left behind will be reminded of all of this and will cry cry cry.

Then shall they cry unto the Lord , but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.  Thus saith the Lord concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.
Micah 3:4‭-‬5

They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.  Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord .  Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.  Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.  Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.
Jeremiah 6:14‭-‬15‭, ‬17‭-‬19

The abraham accords=peace peace when there is no peace

I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and ->parted<- my land.
Joel 3:2 KJV

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
1 Thessalonians 5:1‭-‬4

Woman=Isreal
Child=church, the body of Christ that will rule with a rod of iron led by the head of the church that is Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of Lords
Revelation 12

I see a darkness, and it's coming. And the hair on your arms will stand up and the trees will rejoice(psalms 96:12-13)

He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.  At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.
Psalms 18:11‭-‬12

America use to love God alot until one day in a cafe she turned around and walked out

No, it is nothing left to archieve.
He has a lot of things money can not buy, some of them he lost (friends, familly)
That money can not buy you really anything is not the big point.

Consider you are big in show buisness, every time you enter stage you are carried by the emotions of thousands of people who want to see YOU.

You create songs or art, and know it means a lot to a lot of people, all that is waaay more than the resulting money

Even if you never become someone anyone listens to if you are very passionate about music by itself and you know it ends here, you can not do it anymore.

I had in my job contact with a lot of people who where not as famous but similar, at the end of there career, and what does hurt them most is that this ends, doing the thing they burn for doing, on top of what everyone who is "normal" experiences with loss of friends and familly.

The things shown represent the memories as much, they are not "worthless" they are a painfull reminder of a times that may not even be happy, but the times there was still something behond the horizon to do and experience.

Life is about what you can do, never about what you have, as long you have food roof and clothing the ammount of money does not make you happy, yes, the ammount of what you can DO makes you happy



Igor Costa

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything
What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I'm still right here
What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way



Austriacki Malarz

Dziś zraniłem się
Aby zobaczyć czy wciąż czuję
Aby skupić się na bólu
Jedynym prawdziwym uczuciu
Igła drąży wkłucie
Stary, znajomy zapach
Próbuję zapomnieć
Lecz nadal wszystko pamiętam
Czym się stałem?
Drogi przyjacielu
Każdy kogo znam odchodzi
na końcu
I mogłeś mieć wszystko
Moje imperium brudu
Zawiodę cię
Zranię cię
Noszę tę koronę z cierni
Na moim tronie kłamstw
Pełen myśli złych
Których nie odpędzę
Pod śladami czasu
Uczucia odchodzą
Jesteś kimś innym
Ja wciąż tu jestem
Czym się stałem?
Drogi przyjacielu
Każdy kogo znam odchodzi
na końcu
I mogłeś mieć wszystko
Moje imperium brudu
Zawiodę cię
Zranię cię
Gdybym zacząć mógł od nowa
miliony mil stąd
Pozostałbym sobą
Odnalazłbym drogę

Closing that piano was like closing his coffin. That is truly one of the most emotional songs ever.

Drew Schellhammer
