On the iPod: Tears for Fears-Elemental

Mrs. Zeke has leveled the accusation at me--fairly--that I don't pay attention to the lyrics of music that I love. Well, for some reason Tears for Fears is hitting me like a hammer this morning, and I'm listening closely. Here's what I'm hearing:

You can't fight the fear you can't, this is the road you're on
You don't belong to me you don't belong to any one
Your reputation lies not in your eyes, but those who dare
Will bite the hand that feeds when it don't meet your needs When you got
blood to bleed, you got a life to lead

In the flood with my blood I can hold you...


So those are my dreams

And these are my eyes
Stand tall like a man
Head a strong like a horse

When it's all mixed up
Better break it down
In the world of secrets
In the world of sound

It's in the way you're always hiding from the light
See for yourself you have been sitting on a time bomb
No revolution maybe someone somewhere else
Could show you something new about you and your inner song
And all the love and all the love in the world
Won't stop the rain from falling
Waste seeping underground
I want to break it down...

So what do these lyrics mean to you, Zeke?

They about made me weep, Nun, and I don't know why. Welcome to the world of being a man... we are ciphers about feelings sometimes.
