And of course:
I just don't know what to do tonight,
My head is aching as I drink and breathe
Memory falls like cream in my bones, moving on my own.
There must be something I can dream tonight,
The air is filled with the moves of you,
All the fire is frozen yet still
I have the will, ooh, ah.
Trumpets, violins, I hear them in the distance
And my skin emits a ray, but I think it's sad, it's much too bad
That our friends can't be with us today.
"when we were younger, of course, we always wanted to change the world and thought we could, but now I think we're smart enough to know that we're just here to help the neighborhood." Rick Danko
Man, my friend's dad has this recording of Maynard James Keenan singing MLK by U2. It was recorded a few years back to play at the funeral of Maynard's friend's father. It's ****ing beautiful. I can't believe I can't find it online. That version is so much more beautiful and haunting than the original.
Do not pass by my epitaph, traveler.
But having stopped, listen and learn, then go your way.
There is no boat in Hades, no ferryman Charon,
No caretaker Aiakos, no dog Cerberus.
All we who are dead below
Have become bones and ashes, but nothing else.
I have spoken to you honestly, go on, traveler,
Lest even while dead I seem loquacious to you.
