A Song & A Book #49

Today’s Song Is;

This is the time
This is the place
So we look for the future
But there’s not much love to go round
Tell me why, this is a land of confusion.
This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth living in.

No answers for no questions asked

Today’s Song Is;

And if you’re in love, then you are the lucky one
‘Cause most of us are bitter over someone
Setting fire to our insides for fun
To distract our hearts from ever missing them
But I’m forever missing him

And you caused it

Today’s Song Is;

(honestly, it was so hard to choose lyrics to pick out because this song is hauntingly fitting for the book)

Crooked fingers knocking on windows without souls
Bodies are swinging from rooftops and poles
Howling through hollows/…/

You cover your eyes, you cover your mouth, you cover your ears
Still you follow our trail
We’ll do it all, we’ll do whatever you say, God has left us anyway/…/

(There are echoes lost in the garden
Is anybody listening?
They whisper:
The ones who are only living are the ones who are only dying)

handmaid

Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the years before, when she lived and made love with her husband, Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now…”

Today’s Song Is;

Well I remember, I remember, don’t worry, how could I ever forget
It’s the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up, oh no you don’t fool me
Well the hurt doesn’t show, but the pain still grows
It’s no stranger to you and me

” Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong.

Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl whose reserved nature obscures a stunning ability. Meanwhile, Eli is on a mission to eradicate every other super-powered person that he can find—aside from his sidekick, an enigmatic woman with an unbreakable will. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the archnemeses have set a course for revenge—but who will be left alive at the end?”

Today’s Song Is;

Whatever you’ve gotta prove, it has nothing to do with me
With all of your might and your slyness
You vanish me and I disappear from view
But our enemies live within
So I sit pretty in the heart of you
