Is that all there is?

I remember when I was a girl
Our house caught on fire
And I'll never forget the look on my father's face
As he gathered me in his arms
And raced to the burning building out on the pavement
And I stood there shivering
And watched the whole world go up in flames
And when it was all over
I said to myself
"Is that all there is to a fire?"

Is that all there is?
Is that all there is?
If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing
Let's break out the booze and have a ball
If that's all there is

And when I was twelve years old
My daddy took me to the circus
The greatest show on earth
And there were clowns
And elephants
Dancing bears,
And a beautiful lady in pink tights flew high above our heads
And as I sat there watching
I has the feeling that something was missing
I don't know what
But when it was all over
I said to myself
"Is that all there is to the circus?"

Is that all there is?
If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing
Let's break out the booze and have a ball
If that's all there is

And then I fell in love
With the most wonderful boy in the world
We'd take long walks down by the river
Or just sit for hours gazing into each other's eyes
We were so very much in love
And then one day
He went away
And I thought I'd die
But I didn't
And when I didn't
I said to myself
"Is that all there is to love?"

Is that all there is?
If that's all there is, my friends, let's keep...

I know what you must be saying to yourselves
If that's the way she feels about it
Then why doesn't she just end it all
Oh no, not me. I'm not ready for the final disappointment
'Cause I know just as well as I'm standing here talking to you
That when that final moment comes
And I'm breathing my last breath
I know what I'll be saying to myself
"Is that all there is?"

Is that all there is?
If that's all there is, my friends, then let's keep dancing
Let's break out the booze and have a ball
If that's all there is

Tiempos Modernos



¿En qué hemos sido convertidos? En una pieza del sistema.
¿Seguimos siendo humanos? No, hemos sido reducidos a una tuerca más de la gran máquina.
¿Y qué pasó con nuestras mentes? El mecanicismo y la rutina sistemática nos enloquecieron.
¿De qué dependemos? De la productividad y el proceso productivo, no importa la clase social. Dependemos tanto del proceso como del resultado.
¿De quién es la culpa? De quien le convenga a aquél que tiene mayor poder.
¿Dónde nos liberamos? Dentro o Fuera. No se sabe dónde está la paz.
¿Y quién se hace cargo? No es la ley, es quien ha vivido y conocido.
¿Y en qué consiste la felicidad? En poder vivir la vida de la manera más sencilla y libre.
¿Y por qué no la tenemos? Porque se nos humilla y cohíbe.
¿Y qué es la libertad? Algo ilegal.
¿Y qué nos queda de la vida? Vivir con nuestros sueños e ilusiones.
¿Y qué hacemos con ellos? Seguirlos hasta el final sin importar qué pase.

World of Glass

Stay with me...

We are the ones God hated.

I'm a falling stone in a world of glass,

I'm a ticking bomb with a smiling mask.

Most times - 14 days ago

Most times things and moments are not as they seem to be, they are constantly changing and we're able to see only the top of the iceberg, the current mutation.
Most times we need to ask ourselves: How deep does the rabbit whole go? We seem lost in our lives when the only thing that matters is what we see, and we stay with that vision.
The most important question at this time is: Why?

Never stop being curious kids,
