General Dust in the Wind by Plainwhite 1/12/2023 written by Plainwhite 1/12/2023 Our time on this earth is fleeting. Maybe its time to focus more on what Id like to do before I die, while I still have time to do them. 4 comments 1 Email Related posts 2/7/2023 Collecting Dust 2/7/2023 HELLO NAME 2/7/2023 2/7/2023 Hell is other people 2/7/2023 poisoned water 2/7/2023 2/7/2023 Any advice? 2/7/2023 I got my eyes on you 2/6/2023 that girl who killed herself 2/6/2023 4 comments heartlessviking 1/12/2023 - 8:23 pm and of course where my brain immediately goes is to Bill & Ted quoting that song to Socrates. Another good song examining this condition is Life’ll Kill Ya by Warren Zevon, who observed; “Life’ll kill ya, that’s what I said, Life’ll kill ya, then you’ll be dead Life’ll find ya Wherever you go Requiescat in pace That’s all she wrote” I will also say that “life is short” does not align with my experience of it. Life is long, so much so that I can’t even wrap my head around what I might do in the time I have left, the remaining 2/3rds of my life.

Not even a hint of “but hold on everything’s gonna be ok!” which the masses demand of their pop songs. I guess it’s up to the listener to put a positive spin as you’re doing, focusing on what you’d like to do before you die. I’m sure the song purposely leaves that interpretation open. Me in my hopeless state though, even those things are meaningless to me now. “All my dreams pass before my eyes, a curiosity” In my dark world the line “Don’t hang on” is talking about hanging on to life. Fucking hell I’m sorry about being such a downer… Either way, great song Log in to Reply Jack 1/15/2023 - 2:49 am Your old apartment burned down? Where do you live now?
