It’s a sad story that the one of our planet and our universe. I do think we won’t learn anything except the obvious: you don’t wanna play, you might as well quit.
But there must be something else, like something really obvious that we’re trying to put down in words. Take for example one of my friends who came to me once: there’s a thin line between love and hate.
While I knew that love hurt really bad, I thought that point of view was interesting. A few years later, I had another angle on the subject: the price of love is not cheap.
So maybe the game of life is about something very simple: conscientization. When you look up Wikipedia for the word, you also stumble upon: critical consciousness. So maybe the game of life is about criticising.
Take for example the song I chose for this post: “Get Over It” by The Eagles. I’m going to try to criticise it a lot and maybe this will be the next orientation of this blog.
Is Their Any Perks In Drowning?
The first verse of the song mentions the victimisation that’s all around. If I had to find an image to this, victimisation is like spending your time drowning in the sea because the lifeguards are sexy. Yes it seems like a good plan to be rescued by Pamela Anderson in her 20s.
They say a victim takes a lot of energy for skilled people. I guess a victim is skilled at shouting “help”. And maybe it’s a skill we would need while traveling space. I hope you get the message in the bottle!
What the victim doesn’t remember is that while he/she points a finger, someone else is judging him/her. The victim has a bad obsession with the physical world and he/she must remember chemistry (the bond you have with others) and mathematics (the easiest way to deal with love) are also important subject.
Was That Another Song About Dignity?
The second verse of the song mentions the big bad world. I think the future will belong to people with some kind of dignity because it seems we will encounter a lot of people claiming they don’t owe you a thing.
Of course money is central with this dodgy subject of are there or are there not good lawyers. But the more I think about it, the more I think I found out what it was all about.
You might feel better with some cash but what you truly need is the words. Please have a seat and relax because if you don’t find them, the words will find you. Who needs action when you got words?
Why Do You Need A Winning Streak?
The bridge of the song mentions a losing streak and you’re making the most of the situation. Why is a winning streak important? That’s because everybody’s got some kind of pressure and a winning streak will help you build momentum. Beware of those that have a problem with time.
I mean you have the right to be tired: only healthy people feel some kind of fatigue. One could think that the insensitiveness to pain our landlord is showing makes the world a crazy place without a shelter. I have more than 5000 songs for you to take shelter but make sure not to change everyday.
Wherever you lay your hat is your home. That’s cool for a while but one day you have to decide what will be your main address in the coming years: “Little Wing” or “Nobody Knows You When Down And Out”.
If you’re looking to have less pressure, also make sure your memory isn’t playing tricks on you.
Is The Song Advice To Kick Ass Right?
The last verse of the song mentions kicking a child’s ass. Now I know what you think: humiliation and giftedness are related but it’s not that simple according to some expert. So knowingly using humiliation is really a dangerous method.
For example think about the last 7 million years and how we’re still stuck on Earth. It’s only been recently that we discovered 4000 exoplanets and sometimes I wonder if we shouldn’t look for a star system with a Jupiter to deviate asteroids from the home planet.
One can experience some kind of humiliation sometimes without really noticing. I guess one can’t overuse a method to see if it’s a good idea. Lately I was thinking that having a method was of course the key to success but it’s not enough: you also have to have a shock absorber to deal with highly improbable events like the return of Jesus Christ.
And then maybe the 21st century will belong to those who wave their shock absorber like a flag. For Lebanese people, the choice was very easy: cedars and the majesty of trees.
