Hoc Est Qui Sumus

  • Music:

From sxoidmal to nergal to discoflamingo

Answer these using the lyrics of just ONE band:
Musician: Tears for Fears

1. Are you male or female?:

She saw me on the television underneath the sun
Thought that I was warm like a mother, lover, brother
Brother, she was wrong
Me, I don't long to belong

2. Describe yourself?:
My features form with a change in the weather -

Great wide stretches of canvas
Signed by a godless name
Strange bright colours of madness
Only a fool would frame

I must learn to protect myself
I'm not a man of violence
I must learn to protect myself
From the sins of science
People came and broke the law
Broke the vows of silence
I must learn to protect myself
From the sins of science

3. How do they feel about you?:

Like light that it caught between night and day
You're stuck between me and my big ideas

You say your cat sees in the dark.
You criticize the flow and isolate the box.
I always knew you were a scientist at heart.

Seems she thought of me as some mystic, fatalistic, mystical guru
Me, I haven't got a clue
But floating on a magic carpet high above the earth
You can see the world like a Buddha, bread and Buddha
Bigger than your hurt
Don't you know that love is work?

4. How do you feel about yourself?:

Daylight Saved
To spite the dark
In spite of the darkness

You can't fight the fear you can't, this is the road you're on
You don't belong to me you don't belong to any one
Your reputation lies not in your eyes, but those who dare
Will bite the hand that feeds when it don't meet your needs
When you got blood to bleed, you got a life to lead

These are the reasons and these are the laws
In one life you're rich, in the next you are poor
Save your excuses, your tensions and fears
Be sure as you go and you go with the flow
And you reap what you sow as above, so below

And if by chance we both forget
The passage of space and time between
Pick up the pieces cold and wet
And drive them before the light to clean

Well they love you when you're weak
Bet they hate to see this winning streak
It's that thing we call control
There's a deep frustration in their soul
Black thoughts
That are stuck between someone's ears
Like me and my big idea

And on the crucifix his mother made
Hangs one more martyr to the hit parade

5. Describe your girlfriend/boyfriend?: (N/A)

I wanted to be with you alone
And talk about the weather
But traditions I can trace against the child in your face
Won't escape my attention
You keep your distance with a system of touch
And gentle persuasion

I believe that if you knew just what these tears were for
They would just pour like every drop of rain
That's why I believe it is too late for anyone to believe
I believe that if you thought for a moment, took your time
You would not resign yourself to your fate
And I believe that if it's written in the stars, that's fine

5a. Describe your ex-boyfriend/girlfriend

Could you ease my load
Could you see my Pain
Could you please explain
The Hurting

Drew the blade way too slow
Was shackled by your honesty
Made a mess, I guess I have should have known
That life was lust and liberty
Not a chance mutation or the last temptation
Laid so low for so long, so low

6. What would you rather be doing?:

Get some honesty
Take the best of me and then the rest let go
In every situation with it's tireless rage
Step outside your cage and let the real fool show
I should have stayed round to break the ice
I thought about it once or twice
But nothing ever changes unless there's some pain

7. Describe where you live?:

Some of us are free
Some are bound
Some will swim
Some will drown
Some of us are saints
Some are clowns
Just like me they're falling down

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

8. Describe how you live?:

" No sleep for dreaming" say the architects of life

Through the maze, precisely
Through the myriad of schemes
With your gaze, entice me
Like an animal, not a mineral

Time to eat all your words
Swallow your pride
Open your eyes

And fear is such a vicious thing
It wraps me up in chains

Though there's no one near me now
How come everyone can touch me
You see the torture on my brow
Relates to neither here nor now

I'll make no noise
I'll hide my pain
I'll close my eyes
I won't complain
I'll lie right back and take the blame
And trie to tell myself I'm living
And when it's all been said or done
Where do I go ?
Where do I run ?
What's left of me or anyone when we've denied the hurting ?

Pass that gun, hand me that knife,
Man's little monster has been brought back to life.

9. Describe how you love?:

It's hard to be a man when there's a gun in your hand

Love is a promise
Love is a souvenir
Once given
Never forgotten, never let it disappear

We could have heal this blindness
With some human kindness
I know secrets kill you
But my love can fill you
Time and time again

10. How do you feel right now?

Well I feel deep in your heart there are wounds time can't heal
And I feel somebody somewhere is trying to breathe

Well you know what I mean
It's a world gone crazy

The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had

Well I feel lying and waiting is a poor man's deal
And I feel hopelessly weighed down by your eyes of steel

In my mind's eye
One little boy one little man
Funny how time flies

We used to sit and talk about primal scream
To exorcise our past was our adolescent dream
But now it's sink or swim since your memory fails
Now in Neptune's kitchen you will be food for killer whales

Did you know your father was an island
Did you know your mother was the sea
Can we ever hope to seek asylum
From the bounds of fate and family

11. Share a few words of wisdom?:

Life, mama says
Is bloodletting go
If I care for nothing
Sun don't shine and the grass don't grow

How many times must I say "life is not a cake to separate"?

Advice for the young at heart
Soon we will be older

These things that I've been told can rearrange
my world my doubt - in time, but inside out
This is the working hour - we are paid by those who learn by our mistakes

Don't you feel your luck is changing
When everything starts to happen
Put your head right next to my heart
The beat of the drum is the fear of the dark
