It's raining.I understand now. It doesn't make me any happier, but it doesn't make me any sadder either. Should i be grateful? I don't know.
The 2001 Clear Channel memorandum is a document distributed by Clear Channel Communications to the over 1,200 radio stations they owned, shortly after the September 11 attacks, containing a list of a large number of what the memo termed "lyrically questionable" songs.
The list contains 166 songs, including "all songs" by Rage Against The Machine.
In some cases, only certain versions of songs were included on the list—for example, the cover version of Smooth Criminal by Alien Ant Farm is on the list despite the fact that the original version, sung by Micheal Jackson is not.

songs? Really? That's harsh.
RATM had over 45 songs and every single one was 'lyrically questionable?'

All day, staring at the ceiling making,
friends with the shadows on my wall.

All night, hearing voices telling me,
that I should get some sleep,

because tomorrow might be good,
For something.
Hold on, feeling like I'm heading for a,
breakdown and I don't know why.
Add ImageI want to live, as an honest man,
Get all I deserve and to give all I can,
And to love a young woman,
Who I don't understand.

A kid at school once said he thought I was on drugs.
He was serious.

Ooooh I like this post.
I was amazed, actually thought I might be on the wrong blog?
Are those bits of your poetry?
