Burning of the Midnight Lamp
Jimi Hendrix Lyrics


The morning is dead
And the day is, too
There's nothing left here to meet me
But the velvet moon
All my loneliness I have felt today
It's like a little more than enough
To make a man throw himself away

And I continue
To burn the midnight lamp
Alone

Now the smiling portrait of you
Is still hangin' on my frowning wall
It really doesn't, really doesn't bother me too much at all
It's just the ever falling dust
That makes it so hard for me to see
That forgotten earring layin' on the floor
Facing coldly towards the door

I continue
To burn the midnight lamp
Lord, alone

Loneliness is such a drag

So here I sit to face
That same old fire place
Gettin' ready for the same old explosion
Goin' through my mind
And soon enough time will tell,
About the circus in the wishing well
And someone who will buy and sell for me
Someone to toll my bell

And I continue
To burn this old lamp
Lord, alone
Darlin' can't ya hear me callin' you?
So lonely
Gonna have to blow my mind
Lonely

Loneliness is such a drag

Eric Talkington

I used to think so too. I was lonely for quite a while, then I taught my mind to enjoy being alone and I've never been happier. I love spending time by myself more than just about anything else. I even do everything alone, concerts, skydiving, anything! Hell, even go to the movies by myself and I love it!

We live in the matrix

Brewtality

We live in the law of sin, we live in ways, we are not supposed to be, it makes our reality an illusion and misery, this is the illusion we are suffering from, causing separation. In physical laws its expressed in another language, basically what we manifest inside our bodies, will manifest outside of our bodies, in a way or another, scientifically provable, who ever has made the natura laws of this existance, consuming something we are not supposed to, we interact beings which breaks down stuff we aint supposed to, which causes separation within ourselfs, and the separation we experience within, we experience without. This is the so called false self image. Basically its more complicate, but if you think, it is not. Only thing that is going to solve the problem, is the original living of human being, getting rid of the illusion.
