Ego Brain

March 9, 2007

I haven’t posted in a while and I need to. I have plenty of things that I want to write about but never make the time to do it. I’ll try to change that in the future. At some point next week I’ll write a very long post about Iraq. For now, I’ll post the lyrics to a song I like a lot by System of a Down song titled “Ego Brain”. System of a Down, who does a variety of styles revolving around hard rock/metal, is my favorite band. I really like the lyrics to their songs and I also like their alternative style. This song is one of their songs that isn’t at all metal and is one of their more alternative and different songs.

Life is but a dream
Drifting on a stream, a stream
Consciously it seems
All of what remains

Ego brain
That makes shame, shame love after it rains

You see my pain is real
Watch my world dissolve
and pretend that none of us see the fall
As I turn to sand
you took me by the hand
and declared that love prevails over all

I am just a man
Fighting other man for land, for land
while I turn to sand
In spite of the pain

Ego brain
That makes shame, shame love after it rains

You see my pain is real
Watch my world dissolve
and pretend that none of us see the fall
As I turn to sand
you took me by the hand
and declared that love prevails over all

All of what remains

Ego brain
That makes shame, shame love after it rains

You see my pain is real
Watch my world dissolve
and pretend that none of us see the fall
As I turn to sand
you took me by the hand
and declared that love prevails over all

(Love after it rains)
