Pacifico: Rock's Modest Models
wisdom comes in many forms
heres some lyrics from my new favorite album
and some verses from my new favorite book
it all has to do with what I am dealing with in life
Dolour / Suburbiac
Who cares what it's about
You say you want it out
Well, I treat you good, but you'd only have me
I won't stand in your way
If you need to go away
And clear your head of something I've said or done
It all comes down to now
Would you make your mind up somehow
To take me or leave me
Kissing you is like getting high on someone else's drugs
I don’t want to die without love on my side
I’d be your one and only
but I’d only let you down
I want your love
but I don’t know what I’d do with it
Cause there’s one hundred fifty thousand people better than
no there’s a hundred million people that are better for
no there’s a billion odd people that are better than me.
So I will put away my feelings in a shoebox in the closet.
But now the door barely shuts
with so much to hide away.
I’m just scared of falling in love
And if you get yourself together
you can bring yourself right over tonight
The sound of knocking’s getting old
but I can’t be bothered opening the door
the expression on your face clearly shows I’m out of place
but then something came to me
the air outside is hard to breathe
so would you slip the food under the door?
Cause I’m staying here a while more
rest your head against the wall
the way you sympathize with me
makes me more pathetic even I can see
I need control of my life
It seems that I’ve been growing tired of chasing the wrong
It’s like I’m barking up the same old trees
It’s the same old things that upset me
I’ve been waiting all my life to get my head on right
Should I bite my lip and settle down?
You’re blessed when you are at the end of your rope. With
less of you there is more of God and his rule.
You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear
to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear
You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are –
no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves
proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.
You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for
God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat.
You’re blessed when you care. At the moment of being ‘care-
ful,’ you find yourselves cared for.
You’re blessed when you get your inside world – your mind
and heart – put right. Then you can see God in the outside
You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate
instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who
you really are, and your place in God’s family
You’re blessed when your commitment to God provokes
persecution. The persecution drives you even deeper into
Not only that – count yourselves blessed every time people
put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to
discredit me. What it means is the truth is too close for
comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can be glad when
Just say ‘yes’ and ‘no’ when you manipulate words to get
your own way, you go wrong
