Papa Roach, "Last Resort"


Cut my life into pieces
I've reached my last resort, suffocation, no breathing
Don't give a fuck if I cut my arms bleeding
Would it be wrong, would it be right
If I took my life tonight, chance are that I might
Mutilation out of sight and I'm contemplating suicide
Cause I'm losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Nothing's alright, nothing is fine
I'm running and I'm crying
I never realized I was spread too thin
Till it was too late and I was empty within
Hungry, feeding on chaos and living in sin
Downward spiral, where do I begin
It all started when I lost my mother
No love for myself and no love for another
Searching to find a love upon a higher level
Finding nothing but questions and devils
Cause I'm losing my sight, losing my mind
Wish somebody would tell me I'm fine
Nothing's alright, nothing is fine
I'm running and I'm crying
I can't go on living this way

"O Fortuna" by Carl Orff, from his opera Carmina Burana



O Fortuna,
velut luna
statu variabilis,
semper crescis
aut descrescis;
vita detestabilis
nunc obdurat
et tunc curat
ludo mentis aciem,
egestatem,
potestatem
dissolv­it ut glaciem.

Sors inmanis
et inanis,
rota tu volubilis,
status malus,
vana salus
semper dissolubilis,
obrumbratam
et velatam
mihi quoque niteris,
nunc per ludum
dorsum nudum
fero tui sceleris.

Sors salutis
et virtutis
mihi nunc contraria,
est affectus
et defectus
semper in angaria;
hac in hora
sine mora
cordis pulsum tangite,
quod per sortem
sternit fortem
mecum omnes plangite.

Translation:

O Fortune,
just as the moon
you vary your state
always increasing
or decreasing;              
the detestable life
now difficult
and then easy
with your games sharpens
poverty,
power          
dissolves like ice.

Often great
and empty,
your revolving wheel,      
an evil state,
vain health
always dissolving,
concealing
and veiled              
you also strive for me
now by game,
a lost shirt
I guiltily take because of you.

Often my health            
and my virtue
are now contrary for me,
affected
and defective
always in torment;          
In this hour
without delay
take the pulse of my heart,
which through fate,
she overthrows my strength:
weep all of you with me.

I...can't...believe...there's another Carmina Burana fan on this board.....wow.

Cool.

It makes my short list of stuff I'd play if I ever found myself in Colonel Kilgore's shoes and my copy of Ride of the Valkyries was scratched....

Actually, I detest the song, and haven't seen the opera (I detest opera also).  But it's definitely a lament, so it fits.

I prefer baroque music.  Bach was a genius, and apparently a devout Christian.  I can only imagine what he could do on a heavenly organ.

Back to the thread...

"Mars, the Bringer of War" seems appropriate for the desolation that now is the Democratic Party.

I like opera.

problem is, I'm the ONLY person in rural west TN who does so.
