ben taylor



Written by: Ben Taylor
If you'd like to come out on the ocean with me,
I know some places that you'd have to go to believe,
And if you're feeling afraid then we can wait till you're dreaming
And getcha one 'nem yellow submarines
Everyone's floating on that old school magical potion
Just blowing off steam
Aqua marines and mermaid limousines
And the sea sends waves to sing your praise
And the nighttime's on fire from the lights above the world
across the way
And it would be a shame if you were not to wake up,
If you forgot to wake up
Please don't be afraid,
It's safe enough to wake up
Now you can forget everything that you said
And every lesson that you ever learned to regret
Stop trying to guess what's coming up next
And look up at the sunset.
Even if you feel as though you haven't got a second to spare,
I don't care.
You don't have to wonder what to wear
And the sea sends waves to sing your praise
And the nighttime's on fire from the lights above the world
across the way
And it would be a shame if you were not to wake up,
If you forgot to wake up
Please don't be afraid,
It's safe enough to wake up
Even if you feel as though you haven't got a second to spare,
I don't care.
And it would be a shame if you were not to wake up,
If you forgot to wake up
Please don't be afraid,
It's safe enough to wake up

The only thing that is truly free is love. Free= no money = no sin, sin meaning contrary to peace. This is why love with unity will unify and cover a multitude of sins. But what is love. "Perfect love casteth out all fear". Charity is humility is love.

"love one another as I have loved you." ya'll.
-Jesus.

"Above all, clothe yourselves with love/charity, which binds us all together in perfect harmony." col3:14

White Lies- Bigger than us.

Get inspired love


You took the tunnel route home, you've never taken that way with me before.
Did you feel the need for change?
Apologies on your fingernails, love flickered in the city of lights,
Like its a mental radio waves (?)

I don't need your tears
I don't want your love
I just gotta get home.

And I feel like I'm breaking up, and I wanted to stay,
Headlights on the hillside, don't take me this way,
I want you to hold me, I want you to pray,
This is bigger than us

You went where the horses cry, you've never taken that way with me before.
Did you feel the need for change?
Guilt smeared across your lips, I was tired and cold from the window
You're tired, nothing has changed.

I don't need your tears
I don't want your love
I just gotta get home.

And I feel like I'm waking up, and I wanted to stay,
Headlights on the hillside, don't take me this way,
I want you to hold me, I want you to pray,
This is bigger than us

Waitin on God

Waiting for God – He Acts on our Behalf
Pasted from AllAboutPrayer.com

Are you waiting for God? He acts on our behalf as we wait for Him. “Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him” (Isaiah 64:4).

Waiting for God – He Strengthens Us
As you are waiting for God, He strengthens you. “But those who wait on the Lord will find new strength. They will fly high on wings as eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint
(Isaiah 40:31).

I once heard an illustration about how God strengthens us during trials. It went like this: “Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks? The eagle will fly to high spot and wait for the winds to come. When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it. The eagle does not escape the storm; it simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm. When the storms of life come upon us, we can rise above them by setting our minds and our belief toward God. The storms do not have to overcome us; we can allow God's power to lift us above them. God enables us to ride the winds of the storm that bring sickness, tragedy, failure, and disappointment into our lives. We can soar above the storm. Remember, it is not the burdens of life that weigh us down, it is how we handle them.

Waiting for God – He Blesses Us
When waiting for God, He blesses you. “Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him” (Isaiah 30:18).


What does it mean to be blessed by God while we wait on Him? As we wait on God and His timing, He can accomplish so much in our hearts. Often we find new purpose in life, receive answers to prayer, see God work, increase our faith, and most often we see God’s perfect plan fulfilled in our situation. Remember, waiting is not wasted time!

So what this book presupposes is- maybe Lady of Shalot doesn't die and she and Sir Lancelot live happily ever after.








http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lady_of_Shalott


Synopsis

The first four stanzas describe a pastoral setting. The Lady of Shalott lives in an island castle in a river which flows to Camelot, but little is known about her by the local farmers.

And by the moon the reaper weary,
Piling sheaves in uplands airy,
Listening, whispers, " 'Tis the fairy

Lady of Shalott."

Stanzas five to eight describe the lady's life. She has been cursed, and so she must constantly weave a magic web without looking directly out at the world. Instead, she looks into a mirror which reflects the busy road and the people of Camelot which pass by her island.

She knows not what the curse may be,
And so she weaveth steadily,
And little other care hath she,

The Lady of Shalott.

Stanzas nine to twelve describe "bold Sir Lancelot" as he rides past, and is seen by the lady.

All in the blue unclouded weather
Thick-jewell'd shone the saddle-leather,
The helmet and the helmet-feather
Burn'd like one burning flame together,

As he rode down to Camelot.

The remaining seven stanzas describe the effect on the lady of seeing Lancelot; she stops weaving and looks out her window toward Camelot, bringing about the curse.

Out flew the web and floated wide-
The mirror crack'd from side to side;
"The curse is come upon me," cried

The Lady of Shalott.

Illustration by W. E. F. Britten for a 1901 edition of Tennyson's poems.

She leaves her tower, finds a boat upon which she writes her name, and floats down the river to Camelot. She dies before arriving at the palace, and among the knights and ladies who see her is Lancelot and he thinks she is lovely.

"Who is this? And what is here?"
And in the lighted palace near
Died the sound of royal cheer;
And they crossed themselves for fear,

All the Knights at Camelot;

But Lancelot mused a little space
He said, "She has a lovely face;
God in his mercy lend her grace,

The Lady of Shalott."

clap your hands and say yeah! - tidal wave



Now that everybody's here
Could we please have your attention?
There is nothing left to fear
No now that Bigfoot is captured
But are the children really right
Alright alright

But are the children really right
Alright alright

the children are alright.

There is danger in our minds
There are things we can't control but
Will we give ourselves a fright
When we become less inhuman
There are people who say why oh why oh why!
Now there are other ways to fly
Oh why oh why Oh why oh why?

But upon this tidal wave
Oh God oh God
But upon this tidal wave
Oh God oh God

We are men who stay alive
Who send your children away now
We are calling from a tower
Expressing what must be
Everyone's opinion
"They are going out to bars
and they are getting into cars
I have seen them with my own eyes."
"AMERICA PLEASE HELP THEM!"

They are child stars . . .

Go to sleep
We're so tired now
Altogether in a snake pit of souls
New days
To throw your chains away
To try to hang your hopes on the wind

Little one
Just a little way
Today all we need is waiting

Night rise
Like the evening prize
In a turnstile backwards we fly
Cold bones
Tied together by
Black ropes we pulled from a swing

Little one
Just a little way
Today all of the dreams are waking

Can't stand on crooked legs
I'm cross-eyed to the wall
In these harbor lights
Satellites explode

Drown, drown
Sailors run aground
In a seachange nothing is safe
Strange waves
Push us every way
In a stolen boat we'll float away

Little one
Hold on

vampire weekends for the hawlidawysze



Your sword's grown old and rusty, burnt beneath the rising sun
It's locked up like a trophy, forgetting all the things it's done
And though it's been a long time, you're right back where you started from
I see it in your eyes that now you’re giving up the gun

When I was 17, I had wrists like steel and I felt complete
And now my body fades behind a brass charade and I'm obsolete
But if the chance remains to see those better days, I'd cut the cannons down
My ears are blown to bits from all the rifle hits, but still I crave that sound

Your sword's grown old and rusty, burnt beneath the rising sun
It's locked up like a trophy, forgetting all the things it's done
And though it's been a long time, you're right back where you started from
I see it in your eyes that now you’re giving up the gun

I heard you play guitar down at a seedy bar where skinheads used to fight
Your Tokugawa smile and your garbage style used to save the night
You felt the coming wave, told me we'd all be brave, you said you wouldn't flinch
But in the years that passed since I saw you last, you haven't moved an inch

Your sword's grown old and rusty, burnt beneath the rising sun
It's locked up like a trophy, forgetting all the things it's done
And though it's been a long time, you're right back where you started from
I see it in your eyes that now you’re giving up the gun

I see you shine in your way
Go on, go on, go on

Your sword's grown old and rusty, burnt beneath the rising sun
It's locked up like a trophy, forgetting all the things it's done
And though it's been a long time, you're right back where you started from
I see it in your eyes that now you’re giving up the gun

Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?
I've seen those English dramas too
They're cruel
So if there's any other way
To spell the word
It's fine with me, with me

Why would you speak to me that way
Especially when I always said that I
Haven't got the words for you
All your diction dripping with disdain
Through the pain
I always tell the truth

Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?
I climbed to Dharamsala too
I did
I met the highest lama
His accent sounded fine
To me, to me

Check your handbook
It's no trick
Take the chapstick
Put it on your lips
Crack a smile
Adjust my tie
Know your boyfriend, unlike other guys

Why would you lie about how much coal you have?
Why would you lie about something dumb like that?
Why would you lie about anything at all?
First the window, then it's to the wall
Lil' Jon, he always tells the truth

Check your passport
It's no trick
Take the chapstick
Put it on your lips
Crack a smile
Adjust my tie
Know your butler, unlike other guys
Why would you lie about how much coal you have?
Why would you lie about something dumb like that?
Why would you lie about anything at all?
First the window, then it's through the wall
Why would you tape my conversations?
Show your paintings
At the United Nations
Lil' Jon, he always tells the truth

Hey! Learn more about the band on the Wiki Page! Reading Rainbow.
A lost little girl.
Everyone's trying to cheer up.
She can't be bought
She can't be won.
She's all but undone.

A lost little girl.
Running through the jungle
running in the streets
She can't be tricked
She can't be tricked.

You call her weird
because you can't understand
the heights she's flown
the depths she's known.

The music is all she can feel now.
It's all she is
It's all she'll ever be.
So let the beat drop.
Into infiniti

MIA Far Far Away

I think I relate alot to this song. And I think it explains alot about who MIA is. She is a heart broken girl. Trying to get back to where she once felt love. Her life was no doubt a tumultuous one.

Check it out.



"Far Far"

Time got me feeling emotions
Why you always digging on my nerve?
I feel weak, when I say "please" you keep on
Does breaking me make you feel so strong?

I go give, show you how low I go
Playa boy go 'head and be that macho
Power up that blade on that chainsaw
Go cut me down and I'm still gon grow

Ahh ahhh ahh
Yeah, he left me, yeah
To go far far away

Coz yesterday I met a girl from Warsaw
She walked like a turtle with a saw paw
Why don't they make some kinda new law
That stops making a religioon out of war?
Yeah, happy you know lots of useless info
Keep ticking like a brain on a robot
But I do know some things you don't know
That people you hate come back for more

Ahh ahhh ahh
Yeah, he left me, yeah
To go far far away

A tug of war with me and he was called for
Like he was iced tea, I was always pom more
But you broke me when you act like you want war
Coz my strength makes you feel insecure

Now here we go, we bouncing like a pinball
I let him go so he can go paint time gold
Why don't we live for that love though?
Or does money still drive you a whole lot more?
