Music Madness Monday...On Thursday!

I realized this morning that I had missed my very favorite blog day, and that is Monday, when I post lyrics and or video for songs that speak to me, and I hung my head briefly in shame. It has just been such a busy week it totally slipped my mind, even when I was blogging, because I was so excited to share my outings with you all!

So a few days late is better than not at all right lol?

This song is called Human Wheels, which is the title track off the Human Wheels CD by John Mellencamp. I love this CD, I used to have it on tape and wore it out, and am currently on my third copy of the disc. This song is slightly haunting, and it is really awesome and I think you should totally go fine it and listen to it right NOW!

*Winks*

As usual I have included a link that has a little player on it, but if it is not working I am sure Youtube has it, they just did not have a video I liked lol..

Human Wheels
John Mellancamp

This land, today, shall draw its last breath
And take into its ancient depths
This frail reminder of its giant, dreaming self
While I, with human-hindered eyes
Unequal to the sweeping curve of life
Stand on this single print of time

Human wheels spin round and round
While the clock keeps the pace
Human wheels spin round and round
Help the light to my face

That time, today, no triumph gains
At this short success of age
This pale reflection of its brave
and blundering deed
For I, descend from this vault,
Now dreams beyond my earthly fault
Knowledge, sure, from the seed

Human wheels spin round and round
While the clock keeps the pace
Human wheels spin round and round
Help the light to my face

This land, today, my tears shall taste
And take into its dark embrace
This love, who in my beating heart endures,
Assured, by every sun that burns,
The dust to which this flesh shall return
It is the ancient, dreaming dust of God

Human wheels spin round and round
While the clock keeps the pace
Human wheels spin round and round
Help the light find my face
Human wheels spin round and round
While the clock keeps the pace
Human wheels spin round and round
Help the light find my face
