PERDRE MA RELIGION

RESIST !!!
R.E.M. – Losing My Religion
R.E.M. – Losing My Religion

Oh la vie est plus grande
C’est plus grand que toi
Et tu n’es pas moi
Les limites que je suis prêt à franchir
La distance dans tes yeux
Oh non, j’en ai trop dit
Je l’ai mis en place

C’est moi dans le coin
C’est moi sous les feux de la rampe
Perdant ma religion
Essayant de rester en phase avec toi
Et je ne sais pas si j’en suis capable
Oh non, j’en ai trop dit
Je n’en ai pas dit assez

Je pensais t’avoir entendu rire
Je pensais t’avoir entendu chanter
Je pense que j’ai cru te voir essayer

Chaque chuchotement, de chaque heure éveillée
Je choisis mes confessions
Essayant de garder un œil sur toi
Comme un fou blessé, perdu et aveuglé, fou
Oh non, j’en ai trop dit
Je l’ai mis en place

Considère ceci
Considère ceci comme l’allusion du siècle
Considère que c’est l’erreur
Qui m’a fait tomber à genoux, échoué
Et si tous ces fantasmes venaient
S’agitant autour
Maintenant, j’en ai trop dit

Je pensais t’avoir entendu rire
Je croyais t’avoir entendu chanter
Je crois que j’ai cru te voir essayer

Mais ce n’était qu’un rêve
Ce n’était qu’un rêve

C’est moi dans le coin
C’est moi dans la lumière des projecteurs
Perdant ma religion
Essayant de rester en phase avec toi
Et je ne sais pas si je peux le faire
Oh non, j’en ai trop dit
Je n’en ai pas dit assez

Je pensais t’avoir entendu rire
Je pensais t’avoir entendu chanter
Je pense que j’ai cru te voir essayer

Mais ce n’était qu’un rêve
Essayer, pleurer, voler, essayer
Ce n’était qu’un rêve
Juste un rêve
Juste un rêve, un rêve

LOSING MY RELIGION

RESIST !!!
R.E.M. – Losing My Religion
R.E.M. – Losing My Religion

Oh life is bigger
It’s bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no I’ve said too much
I set it up

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spot-light
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

Every whisper, of every waking hour
I’m choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt, lost and blinded fool, fool
Oh no I’ve said too much
I set it up

Consider this
Consider this the hint of the century
Consider this the slip
That brought me to my knees, failed
What if all these fantasies come
Flailing around
Now I’ve said too much

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
That was just a dream

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spot-light
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
Try, cry, fly, try
That was just a dream
Just a dream
Just a dream, dream

    Yea Tell Me About It! I remember when this R.E.M tune came out and we thought they and their tune were cool; now it really does fit much more to the reality before us all right this minute!

    So maybe its not coincidence that I just wrote this in a posting minutes ago!

    This is a very interesting read that’s puts the day into a sharp focus for me; a bit of sarcasm with a biting truth about the human condition.

    “We are a tedious, tiresome passel of flouncing drama queens.”

    So many years ago he was thinking that! Imagine what those folks back then would see if here now in this modern land of; “a sorry excuse for humanity!”

    This is so much more apparent now in a world of narcissists and vain trolls, look at all of the fools on the internet alone that need to pose and draw attention to their looks or how many likes and all the phony game playing rubbish they embroil themselves in, with Facebook and even here on this platform. All a fool’s errand contest to outdo the other fool before he outdoes you! Oh my God I’m so impressed with them; NOT!

    “Surely God is not so foolish as to let flouncing drama queens embroil him in their childish plots of vanity, lust and revenge.”

    Oh let’s not even go there, trying to begin to see what the all-knowing God Almighty sees in this latest generation of contemptuous plot driven, lustful, phony, backstabbing, hypocrites and liars! I do have to begin to wonder though; how does He put up with it all so long! I’m already turned off majorly, and I’ve lived a number of years that amount to a blip on the grand scale of time if even that; a fart in the wind!

    Well Scriptures do specify that when the End Time comes the stars with fall from the heavens and like a giant carpet being rolled up and it will be game over! I also have to honestly wonder how many human souls are really good enough and worthy of a Godly reward? The Saints sure measure up in my eyes! The rest of us sure need some unbelievable mercy and breaks!

    “3Their slain will be left unburied, and the stench of their corpses will rise; the mountains will flow with their blood. 4All the stars of heaven will be dissolved. The skies will be rolled up like a scroll, and all their stars will fall like withered leaves from the vine, like foliage from the fig tree. 5When My sword has drunk its fill in the heavens, then it will come down upon Edom, upon the people I have devoted to destruction.” Isaiah 34: 3-5

    Some say this is all an illusion, and, logically one could surmise that is true to the extent that we don’t have all the answers to the endless questions or especially some of the much bigger questions such as to the Why and What is the Meaning to all of this.

    Of course I believe there is a purpose to everything that is going on especially in light of the fact that we fallible or imperfect limited beings have a glimpse or view through the crack in the door of what is out there in the vastness of existence; and then there is prophesy to add to this equation that was and is long term insightful bench marks of truth if you will that have been provided from God to give us His children the guidance we so sorely need.

    “Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, Vanity of vanities! All is vanity” (Ecclesiastes 1:2,
    Romans 8:20 says that all creation was subjected to vanity because of God’s curse. When Adam sinned, God cursed all that He had made (Genesis 3:17–19). In other words, perfection was lost. All of creation is now falling short of its original purpose; rather than working in harmony with God and creation, inhabitants of the earth have turned on each other and against God. We still reel from the effects of that curse. Everything meant to be right side up is upside down. The chaos and insanity of the world as we know it are due to the fact that God has subjected creation to vanity until the time when it will be set free (Romans 8:21).

    All I can say at the moment is God help us, even though we don’t deserve diddly-squat!
    God bless.

      1. You’re welcome John! The sad truth is that multitudes of humans have and are losing their rights, dignity and humanity; some very willingly as they have been on that path of self-destruction for decades. But now multitudes of decent caring persons are being forced down that same slippery slope of futility! Diabolical powers have taken hold of the human race system and it has been far too corrupted and becoming evil for a long while; and this is the result a global atrocity and tearing apart of cultures and societies with outright deceptions, carried out on a global scale; which is only going to get worse! There isn’t any panacea or utopia down the road where all people will be singing kumbaya and living happily ever after as a family of good beings on earth.
        Look at all of the deception by MSM, our governments and here in America Biden or Fauci; these are sure signs of how fallen humanity is now; right at the edge of the precipice!

        I recently wrote along these lines in this blog posting. “Is mankind on a collision course within themselves which has taken mankind to lows which mankind could have never imagined nor foreseen.” The following is an excerpt.

        Good scientific deductive thinking and food for thought; or at least personal genuflection to Almighty God’s Absolute Truth. I think temptations have grown exponentially over the last several decades and now many humans place themselves either above God in some extreme cases or in the very least see themselves as godlike being drunk with delusional grandeur, which either way has allowed Satan to gain control over so many humans in ways before not remotely possible, due to the now feverish High Tech Age that is running rampant and growing exponentially with its promotion of digital passport tracking and AI surveillance; very “Blade Runner” like in Sci-Fi terms! It can only end very badly for all of humanity unless God steps in; and Holy Scriptures spell out that this time would come.

        “1But understand this: In the last days terrible times will come. 2For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, without love of good,” 2 Timothy 3:1,2,3

        Of course anyone with a conscience and some hope carried forward with faith understands that in the final analysis God’s love prevails; but there is a hell, and many are going there with many more wanting to follow! Reality is a bitch!

          Hello Lawrence,

          It is certain that the human species is on one or more trajectories. And today, it seems that the choice of weapons has been made – unfortunately. However, our freedom must be defended and we cannot remain deaf to the aggressions suffered by our brothers.

    This may or may not be the case and only time will tell now.
    But, I must take a more realistic and what may be to many a pessimistic outlook, because as the adage goes “you’re a day late and a dollar short” absolutely applies to mankind’s present position, like it or not! Why; because the Devil has been given his due and most humans have willingly done so, actually participating with his most selfish desires; because he now having the upper-hand with so many temptations, that a secular faithless people love to suck up!

    This comment I made back on January 11th 2020 just as the manmade nightmare of complete stupidity was beginning!
    What’s-Up with the Turncoats Party of Traitors!
    Welcome to Socialist Communist America where if you’re rich or a celebrity and yes especially a Politician, and of course even if you’re an Illegal Invader who will vote Dem for life You too can have rights and justice served, if not you’re shit out of luck and you can head to Venezuela for all the Dem party cares!
    Here are two essays that hint at more or less what I’m saying; one is older which I just quoted from and one is brand new, but, nothing has changed for the better during the time that elapsed between them! On the contrary; everything has gotten exponentially worse!

    I really do wish that the human race prove me wrong, but, I have too much confidence in their failure; to expect that to happen!
    I don’t play these games anymore, of playing and feeding off of each other’s foolishness, projecting false expectations nor having “Delusions of Grandeur!”

    Try as some will; no humans can fix “STUPID!”
