The day I fucked up the world

January 9, 2006 at 12:44 am (Uncategorized)

If there’s something I learnt over the years, its to take every piece of advice given to me with a pinch of salt.

Lets face it. Advice is never neutral – its always biased; there’s always a hidden agenda behind every piece of advice ever given.

Example No. 1

Mom says: Study hard boy!

Hidden agenda: Mother wants you to succeed in life and studies. Does the world want you to be a better person? Nope. It doesnt care. Does the world cry if you fail your studies? Nope. It doesnt care. Does the world feel bad for not bringing you up the correct way? Nope. The world doesnt care.

Hidden agenda – 1
Neutral advice – 0

Example No. 2

Police man says: Dont drink and drive.

Hidden agenda: We’re police men. You sure as hell wont listen to us! Rules are meant to be broken. So please, please drink and drive. When we stop you at a roadblock, we get to distribute our daily quota of summons. Please do it. But if you die, oh well.. We already told you not to!

Hidden agenda – 2
Neutral advice – 0

Example No. 3

Father says: Son, you must finnish your food.

Hidden agenda: Dont waste my fucking food, boy. So what, if that meal you didnt touch could feed a village in Kazakstan for a week? Regardless if you eat it or not, they wont even catch a glimpse of it.

Hidden agenda – 3
Neutral advice – 0

Sure, friends might turn to you for advice. As a friend, you do want to give the best advice you can. But sometimes, the best thing for the world, isnt always the best thing for your friend. Just before you open your mouth to voice out that precious piece of advice, you stop to ponder – what if what I say will fuck things up?

But I’m a creep,
I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doin here?
I don’t belong here
Radiohead – Creep

What if that one piece of advice you gave out, would change the course of things to come. What if that one piece of advice you gave would fuck up a potentially good thing from happening? What if that one piece of advice given was laced to the brim – to the fucking brim – with your own hidden agenda.

Could you live with yourself? Would you be ridden with guilt? Would you blame yourself for things to come – things that happened as a direct result of the advice given?

Would it be your fault?

If it’s wrong to tell the truth
Then what am I supposed to do
When all I want to do is speak my mind
Blue – Guilty

Was all that hidden agenda, all your vasted intrest – clouding up your judgment? Did you think with both your heart and head before you opened that fucking mouth?

I wish I could say I did. I wish I could say that the advice I gave was neutral. I wish I could say that result of following my advice was the for best. I wish I could say it was for the best of everyone, not just me, or a select few people.

I never want to play the games that people play
I never want to hear the things they gotta say
I’ve found everything I need
I never wanted anymore than I can see
I only want you to believe
Blue – Guilty

If there’s something I learnt over the years, its that once something has been said, it cannot be undone.

Nine Days – Story of a girl

This is the story of a girl,
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world!
And while she looked so sad in photographs,
I absolutely love her,
When she smiles…

How many days in a year?
She woke up with hope but she only found tears.
And I can be so insincere,
Making her promises never for real!
As long as she stands there waiting,
Wearing the holes in the soles of her shoes!
How many days disappear?
When you look in the mirror so how do you choose?
Your clothes never wear as well the next day,
And your hair never falls in quite the same way-
But you never seem to run out of things to say…

THIS IS THE STORY OF A GIRL,
WHO CRIED A RIVER AND DROWNED THE WHOLE WORLD!
AND WHILE SHE LOOKED SO SAD IN PHOTOGRAPHS,
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER,
WHEN SHE SMILES…

How many lovers would stay?
Just to put of with this shit day after day!
How did we wind up this way?
Watching our mouths for the words that we say.
As long as we stand here waiting,
Wearing the clothes of the souls that we choose!
How do we get there today?
When we’re walking to far for the price of our shoes!
Your clothes never wear as well the next day,
And your hair never falls in quite the same way-
But you never seem to run out of things to say!…

THIS IS THE STORY OF A GIRL,
WHO CRIED A RIVER AND DROWNED THE WHOLE WORLD!
AND WHILE SHE LOOKED SO SAD IN PHOTOGRAPHS,
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER,
WHEN SHE SMILES…

Your clothes never wear as well the next day,
And your hair never falls in quite the same way-
But you never seem to run out of things to say…
This is the story of a girl,
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world!
And while she looks so sad in photographs,
I absolutely love her-

This is the story of a girl;
Her pretty face she hid from the world!
And while she looks so sad and lonely there,
I absolutely love her,
When she smiles…

This is the story of a – girl!
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world!
And while she looks so sad in photographs,
I absolutely love her,
When she smiles…
When she smiles.

    life’s like that isn’t it… always two side to the story, always consequences to bear, always fear to follow and uncertainty always trails… Anyway, thank you.
