I listen to the Wind
To the wind of my soul
Where I'll end up well, I think
Only God really Knows

I've sat upon the setting sun
But never never never
I never wanted water once
No never never never

I listen to my words
But they fall far below
I let my music take me
Where my heart wants to go

I've swam upon the devil's lake
But never never never
I'll never make the same mistake
No never never never

OT: I'm sorry to say, but after, what at face value appeared to be a very civilized, educated and integrated muslim threatened my life for my having the "wrong faith", insisting that their book demands it, there can't be enough of this "rage", though I have yet to see any of it.


Religion sucks.

Deal with it.

Did he call for the assasination of Moscow's Man (AKA the pussy grabber)?

By which time he'd already renounced songwriting anyway. 

Wasn't he recently cooling off a bit? He started to use his old name again, too.

It's of course sad and/or dangerous if someone becomes so delusional, but it's great if someone recovers.

Listened to his music since I was old enough to listen to play my sister's records.

Beautiful.
Best ever
This is actually from Teaser and the Firecat.  Wonderful album.

A great CS track, I wish it were longer.
