Hey there bro,
Now we're talkin'!
This song ever reminds me of the excerpt on pain, from Kahlil Gibran's "The Prophet":
"And he said:
Your pain is the breaking of the shell
that encloses your understanding.
Even as the stone of the fruit must break,
that it's heart may stand in the sun, so must you
And could you keep your heart in wonder
at the daily miracles of your life, your pain
would not seem less wonderous than your
And would you accept the seasons of your
heart, even as you have always accepted
the seasons that pass over your fields.
And would you watch with serenity
through the winters of your grief.
Much of your pain is self-chosen.
It is the bitter poison by which the phy-
sician within you heals your sick self.
Therefore trust the physician, asnd drink
his remedy in silence and tranquility:
For his hand though heavy and hard, is
guided by the tender hand of the Unseen,
And the cup he brings, though it burn
your lips, has been fashioned of the clay
which the Potter has moistened with His
own sacred tears.
(Is it really all about control? Dream control?)
