Triple X Girlfriend by Front 242

I’ve just found a beautiful song with even more beautiful, deep and profound lyrics. The song is titled “Triple X Girlfriend” and it’s by Front 242. I’ve never heard anything by this band before so I guess this is a good start. This song has gotten me interested to delve deeper into their music.

Here’s the lyrics:

“There is nothing here I haven’t seen
I’m just waiting for my turn to leave
There is nothing I haven’t experienced
And so little left to talk about
There is nothing I haven’t been been through
I’ve stopped waiting for what will not come
There is nothing here I haven’t seen
I’m just waiting for my turn to leave
I will sink soon
I will sink
I will sink soon
I will sink
…soon
there is nothing more I need to learn
I’m more than ready for my return
I’m about to leave this (?doggie tree?)
My visions do not frighten me
I hid far from myself already
Entering a higher energy
I feel my forces abandoning me
I see the lights growing gradually
I will sink soon
I will sink
I will sink soon
I will sink
I hid far from myself already
Entering a higher energy
I feel my forces abandoning me
I see the lights growing gradually
I hid far from myself already
Entering a higher energy
I feel my forces abandoning me
I see the lights growing gradually
I will sink soon
Or will I soar?”

Tell me that isn’t beautiful!

I’m so glad to have discovered Front 242.

Here’s the video: 

 

We are all a little bit broken

We are all a little bit damaged

We are all a little bit tainted. 

We all seek solace

Seek relief

Seek comfort.

But, in our quest to find “that place” where we can enjoy those things someday, we tend to lose our grip on the “now”,  the “present”, the reality. 

We condition ourselves to overlook the simple joys of life. We get so used to the rut that we forget to appreciate that even everyday things can be special. Well, sometimes. 

Sometimes, even mundane things can be the sources of happiness. But we have a goal in mind. So, we don’t pay attention to such trivial things. 

Perspectives

All my life, I’ve been pretty good at understanding other people’s perspectives. I had learnt to use my observation to connect people’s behaviours with their thought processes in my formative years (I had a lot of time, I wasn’t allowed to go outside and I was an observant child). Using this, I’ve predicted actions that have come true more than most of the time. Yes, I’ve observed that too.  🙂

Hurt, and Then Some

There are people that you hurt. Period.

There’s no changing that. You feel certain emotions or you’re under some wicked compulsion that makes you hurt those people. 

Some of them, you hurt deliberately. 

Some, you would rather not have anything to do with for the rest of your life. 

And then there are those who would have been the last people on earth that you would even consider hurting. But still, you end up hurting them. 

You don’t want to. 

But still, this is what you do. 

You hurt them nonetheless. 

Sure, you had your reasons. 

But do those reasons let you sleep at night?
