Ice girl, she's waiting for me on the second moon
If I can blast this crazy loop I'm gonna be there soon
Did you hear your mother threw another sucker to the sun?
He looks a lot like the good old boys of Apollo One
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/m/monster+magnet/100+million+miles_20897460.html ]
Mama, Mama tell me I ain't gonna die
Maybe baby say you found the astroglide
Hey, there ain't no pain
100 million miles away
Mad god took my girl and made time stand still
I used to hate that story freak and now I always will
Dead planets ain't no fun, I'm coming in way off time
That constellation looks just like my baby's sweet behind
Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.
