saw you in the wild

knew you in the wild

you were nervous, you were furious
you were very sure-footed
your dreams and intentions
full of wonder and amazement
the fire in your eyes
you were in your disguise
you were haunted you were hollow
you could not see tomorrow

in the books, in the trees
you were spreading your beliefs
and their hats all went off to you
they were trying to show respect for you

holding onto high ideals
living incongruously
you were there among the leaves
your needs were directing you
and the wilderness, it spoke to you
they were threatening to choke you
you were always aware
you could sense that i was there

i could tell by your look
you came from a book
and i read many times
all your funniest lines
and the branches with the sages
i turned all the pages
we were two sets of eyes
two fires burning behind

in the wild,
i saw you in the wild
i knew you in the wild’

-Lyrics: Saw You in the Wild (Great Lake Swimmers)

Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes:

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”

“There are no facts, only interpretations.”

“The advantage of a bad memory is that one enjoys several times the same good things for the first time.”

“Be careful, lest in casting out your demon you exorcise the best thing in you.”

“There are no beautiful surfaces without a terrible depth.”

“What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: ‘This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more’ … Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you would have answered him: ‘You are a god and never have I heard anything more divine.”

“That which is done out of love is always beyond good and evil.”

“The higher we soar the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly.”

“Today as always, men fall into two groups: slaves and free men. Whoever does not have two-thirds of his day for himself, is a slave, whatever he may be: a statesman, a businessman, an official, or a scholar.”

“The thought of suicide is a great consolation: by means of it one gets through many a dark night.”

Edgar Allan Poe Quotes:

 

“All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry. “

“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.”

“Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears.”

whoah with the dancing
hollering this won't be the end of us
flowering frightening
storm chasing lightning rod
glittering glowering
menacing fatal flaw
he kept shaking me
and waking me
telling me
_______
we only live once

coin laundry pondering wandering scheme
dirty dishes dismantled in the corn field
bible sitting by the pond
soup starring evening
we were banned
blinded
banished
_____
we were young
