  • Why oh Why?

    Why do certain songs stick in a person's head? This friggin song is haunting me. Any shrinks out there that can help me? I wish I would have never heard it!!

    Whats messed up about it, is that the lyrics make no sense whatsoever!!!!

                Guaranteed weight loss for me because I would puke. I am a classical music buff. Country music makes my spleen hurt.

                You listen to this one!!

                      I listened to McMurty. Nothing like some weird 60's throw up hippy singing protest songs with a country beat. I puked twice and listened to

                        Perhaps the puking is a cleansing process. I find this behavior often when I deal with adults who have experienced a childhood where classical music was dominent.

                          My kiddo says that this song is about the fall of America. Makes sense to me. If you look at the words, and apply it to the downfall of America, it makes sense.

                          I used to rule the world
                          Seas would rise when I gave the word
                          Now in the morning I sleep alone
                          Sweep the streets I used to own

                          I used to roll the dice
                          Feel the fear in my enemies eyes
                          Listen as the crowd would sing:
                          "Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

                          One minute I held the key
                          Next the walls were closed on me
                          And I discovered that my castles stand
                          Upon pillars of salt, and pillars of sand

                          I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
                          Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
                          Be my mirror, my sword, and shield
                          My missionaries in a foreign field
                          For some reason I can’t explain
                          Once you’d gone it was never, never an honest word
                          That was when I ruled the world

                          It was the wicked and wild wind
                          Blew down the doors to let me in.
                          Shattered windows and the sound of drums
                          People couldn’t believe what I'd become

                          Revolutionaries Wait
                          For my head on a silver plate
                          Just a puppet on a lonely string
                          Oh who would ever want to be king?

                          I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
                          Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
                          Be my mirror, my sword, and shield
                          My missionaries in a foreign field
                          For some reason I can’t explain
                          I know Saint Peter won't call my name
                          Never an honest word
                          But that was when I ruled the world

                          Hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
                          Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
                          Be my mirror, my sword, and shield
                          My missionaries in a foreign field
                          For some reason I can’t explain
                          I know Saint Peter won’t call my name
                          Never an honest word
                          But that was when I ruled the world

                            I believe that when a song's lyrics get stuck in your head, it is a subconscious relationship to something you've been thinking about consciously...you just have to figure out what it means to you before the song will go away.

                              So, I need to figure a way to rule the world, then fall from grace. Great. Like I do not have enough things to worry about.
