Our Lips Are Sealed

I used to have another blog before this one called "It's All in My Head". I dropped it because a)I became bored with what was essentially a "vanity blog", b) it had begun to morph into an ongoing diary of my creative exploits and c)there were serious family matters afoot that seemed to warrant to the timing of the "official" change. Suffice it to say that people were getting hurt and it was appropriate to rethink it all, all things considered.

One of the things that I would write about were the things that got stuck in my "slightly" obsessive mind. Happily, the more I dive in to those things that interest me, the more it seems that this "slightly" obssessive energy becomes channeled and productive. BTW, being "slighty" obsessive is very much like being "slightly" pregnant. You may not be that far along, but are still going to have a baby. (Well, most people, but that's another story for another blog, and I digress. Bigtime.)

One of the ways that this obsessiveness used to manifest itself is that I would get songs stuck in my head. Often, I would realize later that there was a message stashed in the song for me from my unconcious mind-or perhaps some Higher Power. Who knows how these things work? This hasn't happened in awhile, but now... for the last couple days... this is the song that has been in my head when I awake.

Can you hear them?
They talk about us
Telling lies
Well that's no surprise

Can you see them?
See right through them
They have no shield
No secrets to reveal

It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed

Careless talk
Through paper walls
We can't stop them
Only laugh at them

Spreading rumors
So far from true
Dragged up from the underworld
Just like some precious pearl

It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed
Pay no mind to what they say
It doesn't matter anyway
Our lips are sealed

There's a weapon
We must use
In our defense

When you look at them
Look right through them
That's when they'll disappear
That's when you'll be feared

Hush, my darling
Don't you cry
Quiet, angel
Forget their lies

Hmmm... wonder where this is going. Time will tell, I suppose. At least it's also a fun song!
