There is chaos in the violence....

The best, most ironic song I've listened to all week ... Eric Bachmann ... a touchstone of mine ... such a writer:




Kill your idols and your fables

Take your weapons off the table
It's only mercy now
That you need in your world

Lay your burdens on my shoulders
For a while, until it's over
I'm going to love you like
We're all each other have

Well, I've got friends and I've got family
From Alaska to Miami
You won't believe the crazy shit
They sometimes say

But don't you dare believe it
When they try to tell you everything
Happens for a reason
Because it doesn't mean a god damn thing

There's chaos in the violence
And it's so insensitive to claim
When there are those who suffer
Suffer for no reason every day

I don't believe in Armageddon
Heaven, hell or time regretted
I'm going to love you like
We're all each other have

So take your idols and your fables
Trick your mind so you'll be able
To deal with pain and death
And loss of those you love

Yes, I've got family, I've friends and
I will love them 'til the end
Despite the batshit crazy things
They often say

But don't you dare believe it
When they try to tell you everything
Happens for a reason
Because it doesn't mean a god damn thing

There's chaos in the violence
And maybe all of this is all you get
So fill your heart with love
And cherish what you can while you are here

And don't you dare believe them
When they try to tell you everything
Happens for a reason
Because it doesn't mean a god damn thing

There's chaos in the violence
And it's so insensitive to claim
When there are those who suffer
Suffer for no reason every day
