I made it… now for round 2

This was the song I would listen to any time I felt that everything was getting too much…

I would put it on and sing… scream… it was a mantra. And I made it… but this year, I think I’ll be keeping the same mantra.

Cause nothing can fucking stop me…

I will not rest…

I will…

And so can you…

Love

The Mountain Goats – This Year

I broke free on a Saturday morning
I put the pedal too the floor
Headed north on mills ave
And listened to the engine roar
My broken house behind me
And good things ahead
A girl named Cathy
Wants a little of my time
Six cylinders underneath the hood
Crashing and kicking
Aha!
Listen to the engine wine
I am going to make it through this year
If it kills me
I am going to make it though this year
If it kills me
I played video games in a drunken haze
I was seventeen years young
Hurt my knuckles punching the machines
The taste of scotch rich on my tongue
And then Cathy showed up
And we hung out
Trading swigs from a bottle
All bitter and clean
Locking eyes
Holding hands
Twin high maintenance machines
I am going to make it through this year
If it kills me
I am going to make it though this year
If it kills me
I drove home in the California dusk
I could feel the alcohol inside of me hum
Pictured the look on my stepfather’s face
Ready for the bad things to come
I down shifted
As I pulled into the driveway
The motor screaming out
Stuck in second gear
The scene ends badly
As you might imagine
In a cavalcade of anger and fear
There will be feasting and dancing
In Jerusalem next year
I am going to make it through this year
If it kills me
I am going to make it though this year
If it kills me

  1. You will make it this year and you’re going to make it next year and the year after that. You belong in the lovely moments made for all to read. You belong in our heart and in our prayers for a better lovely tomorrow!

    Wish you love and peace and everything in between.

      1. The great mystery of life… Where have all the trees gone?… probably paper… adds another sheet to the stack… shirt reads… “Save the Trees… Can’t Breathe Carbon”… we are monsters… well I am at least…

  2. It does even out…haha… my theory on eating meat is that the animals we eat wouldn’t be here if we weren’t going to eat them… but it doesn’t mean we have to treat them like shit before we do… Also I don’t like lettuce so…. I’d be dead within two weeks…
