lost for worlds

there is magic there is bullshit

there is a universe oblivious to us

people are animals

animals are people

yet we murder we kill

we kill ourselves to live

those with time try to kill it

those without time try to buy it

still we hurtle headlong

as we are in free fall

inaccessible mainly to ourselves

with trust comes betrayal

without trust comes emptiness

with faith comes disappointment

without faith comes hopelessness

well ive done it all

rich poor young old lucky unlucky

life got me baffled

what have i really learned

look i dont want my world to end damn that prediction

nothings easy thats for sure

for every genius there are ten thousand idiots ready to crucify him

for every one saved there are ten thousand more lost

i am incredulous at the incredulity of myself and all others

we are all in this separately together

we will all die and live and die we will remember nothing

fuck napoleon fuck columbus fuck genghis khan

keep on rockin’ in the free world

how did those old twin towers come tumblin’ down…?

    Wow….
    Please don’t let anger and spite own you longer than it has already. You are a sage to so many. A rant is a rant is a rant. Just to clarify…my next door neighbor is a head foreman for a major iron workers union and company. That is exactly how those 2 towers would have fallen because of the heat, size, and depth of the fire in both buildings. Those plans were topped off with fuel. What he and so many of his colleagues do not understand, for all the conspiracy theorists is how and why building #7 went down, when if some fire spilled over. That #7, from his 25+ years of professionalism ….was imploded.
    Look, I know ur wired up and wound up right now because of factors you may belive. That are out of your control, I disagree….I think you have mountains of control and a post-action reaction like this is/was expected by those you are in conflict with. Everyone exhibits their pantamines on full display. Fuck, SK – you have all the control when you allow yourself to take control. Step back from the podium of snakes and arrows and take on this situation with a smile on your face, a soothing assurance in your voice, and control in your eyes. If you simplify each of your actions and use your almighty given powers to ‘persuade’ those who oppose you. You will fuckn will. Take a deep breathe and confront all this head on, not with a sword and shield (that’s what your advasaries expect). No no no…with a sly grin and that intelligent weapon of mass destruction: the brain and how you CAN communicate to achieve what you need and desire, fuckn tranquility…lesses the burden of this stress. I didn’t sleep at all.last night- but I still am gonna take on this new day, the best I am able, with the same zeal that I do every other day.
    Take the power back…than you can share control and unity is far stronger than going at this alone.

        Wow…is the ‘darwin’ reference a slam on me. Look Steve, I as many others, watched the entire sci scenario happen on the telly. But I was in my neighbor, the 25+ year professional iron worker who walks steel hundreds upon hundreds of feet in the daily, house watching with him and he correctly and accurately predicted how and when those 2 towers would come down- almost to the minute it happened. Yeah, there are many conspiracy theorists for every ‘unexplainable’ event in time known to man. Such as the disappearance of basically any remote evidence of the two other planes: one in a field-one into a building. Im reading Area 51 right now that discredits the entire alien theory and with interviews of retired employees from that place and space in time say that a ‘hover’ craft crashed into the farmfield- built by German scientists with technology they developed for the Third Reich. USA smuggled in from Germany, Dr. Von Braun and other scientists responsible for the creation of the V1 rocket ( I know this because my father worked with him, my father was a ‘quality control expert for defense systems initiative ‘ and I have the medals, pins, and paperwork of what my dad did prior to meeting my mother and marrying her. The Russians smuggled in Dr’s Walter and Reidar Horten. They were believed to have built a manned saucer like flying device for espionage, that in 1947 – could travel higher and faster- propelled by rockets, not jet engines, and travel up to 1200 mph. Flying Saucers- yeah, man made.
        I fully understand that each and everyone has formulated a difference of opinion and is entitled to his/hers. But I didn’t mean to offend you to the point that I went from ‘dazza’ , which I take as a compliment-my friends and family call me that to ‘darwin’ , which unless is used a reference to Mr. Charles Darwin, I take as an insult.
        By the way, my iron worker neighbor, built a simple structure of cardboard and balsa wood, and other simple materials and set it on fire as close to the level and duration as those 2 towers, and it didn’t topple over- it fell direct down onto the structure below.
        I have never ever discredited your intelligence and actual find you to be extremely educated for someone with without paper degrees pasted into $7 frames hanging about their house or office. For one second, take out of ur mind that u think I am a ‘fanboy’ as you sometimes refer to those who support you and believe me when I tell you that many of us on the other side of that screen are extremely intellectual and just because we don’t spell check before we hit ‘submit’ doesn’t mean shit. You could care less if you spelled a word correctly or used it in its ‘origin’ structure and I admire you for not being so cynical or petty, its a frigging blog- not a thesis.

    And regarding the little calendar expiring, here is my humorous point of view on that. Harold (what’s Mayan for Harold?) was so busy…commissioned by his colleagues to create a useful device to track and record time and space, dot the I’s of time- cross the T’s….and he was good at it – 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 201….than HIS significant other barged in to his serenity filled work place …all piss and vinegar…”Harold, stop all that nonsense- you and your weird friends- who cares ‘when’ it is??? The sun up tomorrow, the moon up at night …there..Harold, I made everything easy for you. Now get out there and kill something with meat on it so we can feed these 7 kids and don’t cone back to you have enough meats” …well Harold did just that…he got up and he left, never to come back because another man’s dreams snuffed out by his wife (sorry wives out there, but its a fact to many a guy). Harold just left…and he walked and walked….hell…he’s still walking today, another broken down-dream crushed-poor bloke.

    There does seem to be some kind of global elite with a separate agenda, above the rule of law, beyond political parties and without recognizing the national sovereignty of any earthly government. How close does it actually get to the descriptions of crazy sounding conspiracy theorists? Since we are so distracted by sports, pop culture, and pseudo-social nonsense, the conspiracies like a “new world order” or illuminati are probably truer than what the average person could imagine. Even being just a bit suspicious makes one a little sick. Actual nausea. Mitt Romney doesn’t look and act like a president, he looks like a guy that would play the president in a Hollywood movie. No suprise.

    unfortunately you seem to have nailed it. which is why i cannot endure political or organised religious ideas anymore, they all seem so fear based. all of them control the individual thinking to the point where an individual can no longer explore his or hers uniqueness. can no longer define his or her own reality, can no longer even fucking breath without paying some tax to some politician who can’t think of anything innovative to do with it except fritter it away on some big conference to discuss committees or fireworks. i don’t think it’s going to sustain itself mush longer though, it can’t possibly go on. fundamentalist christian or muslim, right left centre all the same thing, i cant tell the difference anymore.
    i am not sure if the universe is oblivious to us though. we will have to agree to disagree on that one point.

    Steve,

    Well spoken blog today, I got into an argument with my father and siblings about some of these question over the holidays. It is amazing what people can convince themselves to believe. It is strange how people you grow up with can drift apart from a way of thinking or develop a sheep like mentality and they dont seem to question anything anymore. I think how in the hell do I have the same genes as these people. War mongering, violence its just the way it is you cant change it is their argument. Sad state of affairs when your own family is one of the 10,000 idiots.

    On a brighter note recevied Life Somewhere Else today 🙂 Let me say 1st of all the packaging and inserts, art work are amazing. I really like the dedication to Greg from yourself and Jeff. The title sums up your blog today very well. As I listen to the album so far my 1st impression is it is very different from the eponymous album yet familar in a good way. I really like the sound and flow of the album, need to listen to it a few more times to absorb the lyrics (my favourite thing about a new album). So far Some Reverse Magic is screaming play me again and again. Belle In Mid Air is also calling me back for more, maybe it’s the song or it could be the title, reminds me of Bel-Air from OSAH. Song For The Moon is spellbinding, cant wait to keep playing this album. Thanks for the pre-release opportunity and signing the album.

    Take Care,

    Jason

        Probably mad at me right about now, but, the title track is actually a beautiful song that makes you feel like taking a very early Sunday morning drive out of the hustle and chaos of a major city like mine…and program ‘repeat’ on ye olde cd player and just drive. Very hypnotic, beautiful song. My wife Laura just stopped in her tracks in my house and said : “Steve sounds lovely, that song stays with me” , she had listened to that one song so many times- she knows the lyrics without hearing the music. Simply amazing !!!

After listening to it, it was like receiving an additional holiday gift. Thank you SK, for shipping this CD all the way to NYC. I absolutely love it (not just saying this…for I am a harsh critic). This CD will remain on my (for lack of better description) “turntable” for quite some time. Thanks to you and JC for the music. Just one question…why didn’t you play bass on the CD?

        Life Somewhere Else will lead you somewhere else.
        Forget Somewhere Else (oh, but keep The Time Being !), prefer Life Somewhere Else 😉

        Let Old Black Spirit sweetly hammer your brain until it is just dust.

    Often I just can’t focus on the big things…I get overwhelmed and completely discouraged. So I try to make the world a little bit better for those in my little slice of the world. Often it’s not much at all — certainly isn’t much at all in the grand scheme of things — and sometimes I fail miserably and wonder why the hell I thought I could do any good in the first place, but the hope of making a few peoples lives a little bit better is enough to get me up every morning. err…or maybe in the afternoon….

    my dad passed away on Monday, I’m thinking alot what Bruce Lee said..

    Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
    Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.

    Twin Towers ground zero , I was an Aussie living in NYC at the time, I had been living there for a number of years it was my home away from home. What ground zero means to me was my neighbourhood up town. Was I ever going to get home that night? Not knowing if my friends or neighbours were ok? If the firemen in my street , the guys you say hello to on the way to work,were alive or not. Would the police and ambulance sirens ever stop? Would I ever stop ducking when a car back fired ? When could I get through to Australia and let them know at home that I was ok. The towers coming down was only the beginning for some of us. Conspirancy thority ? —– I had other things on my mind.

    One of best friends lost his hamster tonight. Yeah, go ahead, laugh – a HAMSTER? But Brian used to fall asleep on his chest, a relaxed little being amongst giants. Life is life. And death is death.

    Death makes me want to scream
    With the inhuman injustice of it all
    I cry and cry, and I rage
    But can you imagine
    The ears upon which the scream falls?
    Nature, nodding, calling it good
    God calling it destiny
    Universe, spinning it into the fabric
    Oh, there’s nothing we can do
    And while I know that one day
    I’ll go there as well
    I wonder what I’ll leave behind
    Not screaming people, I hope
    No, don’t do that to yourself
    No one dead wants anyone alive to suffer
    This I know for sure
    A soul freed from earth is not a tragedy
    A soul remains its own being
    Oh how I’ll miss you
    Yes but
    We will meet again
    This I know for sure.

    Embrace what you have, beloved SK…one day, it will be another day…

    There is so much in this blog post that I feel and sense to be true. The older I get the more I am less sure about any absolutes and see so much gray. The paradoxes of life…..

    This old geezer having twins 18 years into a marriage has surely thrown a wrench into how I view the world. They pointed the finger at me and my self-centered blind life. I thought everything was going along smooth but I was blind to those around me. I feel like the last 3 years, with kids, has opened me up like a coconut. It has been fucking hard as hell but I wouldn’t change it for the world.

    I look forward to buying the new Isodore when it comes out. Much love, Steve!

    it’s sometimes impossible to know exactly what to believe
    do we accept what we’re told, or is something else up the sleeves
    of the power brokers of this world who control most things like the media,
    corporations, government, religion, and even the fish under the sea
    yet one thing that’s not for sell is the mind, and that shall be kept free
    from the chains of this existence and its many illusions of “liberty”
    for to question and to seek clarification is part of our mortality
    and though we deal with a lot of social injustice, lies, and hypocrisy
    we’re given tiny instruments of retaliation as some sort of godly reprieve
    like art and music that can inspire and change hearts across many boundaries
    and when life begins to suck we can be inspired by their creative beauty
    and reenergize ourselves to face the madness and all its difficulties

      can’t help remembering an episode from 2006
      my husband told me we’re going to “a game” because he got free tickets at work…
      i thought — wow this is so depressing, has he been living in this redneck state for too long?… he seemed so excited that i didn’t have the heart to tell him how i really felt about this “entertainment” — to say i don’t give a shit about sports is an understatement —
      on the way to “the game” i tried and failed to figure out how i’d pass the time which would probably drag painfully slow… too noisy to sleep…
      we arrived but not at a stadium — that seemed odd
      we walked up to the building that seemed to be the destination —
      i saw the poster on the wall of the venue announcing that night’s gig
      it was —- oh but of course —–
      the church
      best effing prank in my life
      he said — did you REALLY think we’re going to the game?

    a post comment – i’m on the bus reading the unauthorised biography of julian assange which i think is an actual biography, it’s brilliant to read his version of events and i really recommend this book to everyone, when this old guy starts up a conversation, during which he discloses that he is part of a group called structural engineers and architects for 9-11 truth, and he begins to tell me that the explosives were planted 10 years earlier and it was a controlled demolition. this completely occurred spontaneously and it was he that mentioned the towers. i’ve no way to know what’s true or false but somethings fishy. one thing i do know, synchronicity is alive and well.

      the way the towers fell is exactly like a controlled demolition
      bush did it to invade iraq
      and the reserve bank got their hands on billions worth of gold which is unaccounted for
      but whos gonna bust them for it….?

    Modern life has become such a farce
    it’s all just a game
    superficial and filled with illusions
    I go through the motions, yet remain unmoved.

    a subsidiary of H Corp had a contract to build a power plant/India stemming from a pipeline from ME/Iraq oil supply… lots of stalls/things being asked for outside of contract from India (roads/water ducts/etc.) that pretty much canned the progress/financial prudence of Hal’s cost estimates/corp gains (that “Ken” guy that they used to show they would not “stand” for corrupt biz was a big part of the India project/collapse of it)… in the interim, Iraq was considering and publicizing its consideration of turning to other than the $$$ for price of oil and instead of pipelines building “across” was becomng reality for permission by and for usage of the sea to ship out of area/under the control of Russ contracts. with threat then of new tarrifs, this would have caused collapse to some extent of the controlled oil price structure… Sadam was breaking free. the end. – the cause for the Iraq war and ultimately all that we watched happen to use as the excuses for a war. no spooky conspiracy, just a magic act for cause (using lives and souls throughout the world)that seemed more valiant than corporate gains/loss of control. the good part of the whole theater we watched was that it finally became important to the US and others that Sadam had gassed his own people, of course he was using what we had given him to do such, but that part wasn’t emphasized too much… at least those were our “how comes” this is happening when all this started going down… so at least we all sat together dillusional to what we’d been watching for years.

    “My life, your world”: pretty much sums it up for me. It’s interesting all the twists and turns humanity take; it makes for great non-fiction and endless fascination, but I don’t get all tangled up in it. Whether 9/11 was an inside job or not, is beside the point. Most likely, no it wasn’t. Avoid conspiracy theories at all costs, you’re only giving too much credit where it’s not due. Are governments shifty? Of course they are, why wouldn’t they be? They’re human made up of humans doing human things. Big fucking surprise! I think too much expectation is put on Institutions as if they were some how above and impervious to human frailty, avarice and shortsightedness. Haven’t we all at some point or another been guilty? Institutions can only reflect that from which they were created. They are not of God or any other non-human cause. To denigrate government, religion, &c as if they were not only capable of suprahuman outcomes, but nothing less ought to be expected of them is naive and ultimately frustrating. My life, your world.

    Supernaught

    Got no religion
    Don’t need no friends
    I’ve got all I want
    and don’t need to pretend.

    Don’t try to reach me
    cause I’ll tear up your mind
    I’ve seen the future
    and I’ve left it behind.

    I was never sure if Ozzy was being facetious in this song or not, but the lyrics always resonated with me. Perhaps I should go see a doctor.
