Problem Queen on Flickr.Via Flickr:Help me through this déja vu
This crazy state of shock
Have you seen the problem queen
She’s never far away
Away from me
And it seems all a dream
Some sad luxury
Of when I escaped
It’s just I…
Can’t see through this hazy view
And all the doors are locked
We’re only alive when we can be 
Defectors from the clock
The clock of all time
She comes and she goes
But where no one knows
And when Her Highness grows 
She shakes me
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la
I wake up and you’re gone from me
This lonely share of shock
Helps me to imagine you
But more often than not
I’m all alone

Daylight on Flickr.Via Flickr:
To my surprise, and my delight
I saw sunrise, I saw sunlight
I am nothing in the dark
And the clouds burst to show daylight
Ooh and the sun will shine
Yeah on this heart of mine
Ooh and I realise
Who cannot live without
Ooh come apart without
It
On a hill top, on a sky-rise
Like a first born child
On a full day, and a full flight
Defeat darkness, breaking daylight
Ooh and the sun will shine
Yeah on this heart of mine
Ooh and I realise
Who cannot live without
Ooh come apart without
Daylight
Slowly breaking through a daylight

Bittersweet Melodies on Flickr.Via Flickr:Whispers in the grass
Under slow dancing trees
Birds were telling me stories
Saying you were meant for me
With their bittersweet melodies
Like a sweet memory
Bittersweet melodies
Can’t go back can’t go on
Without those bittersweet memories
Creaking kitchen floor
Snow slips under the door
Tiny speakers were singing
Telephone always ringing
With those bittersweet melodies
Like a sweet memory
Bittersweet melodies
Can’t go back can’t go on
I remember us
Before we turned to dust
Just what our feelings were all about
When we still could trust
In our hearts
Bittersweet memories
Like a sweet melody
Bittersweet memories
Can’t go back can’t go on
Both of us singing that same old song
Without bittersweet memories
Like a sweet melody
Bittersweet memories
And it seems oh so long since those
Bittersweet melodies played for me

Flume by P.E.N. on Flickr.
Via Flickr: Day 31. Sorry I was M.I.A. for awhile. I’ve been feeling inspired lately, especially by natural lighting. I decided that I’m going to approach this project a little differently….I realize I’m not going to have time every single day to shoot and upload. I will, however, continue on until I reach 365. Musical Inspiration: Flume- Bon Iver I am my mother’s only one It’s enough I wear my garment so it shows Now you know Only love is all maroon Gluey feathers on a flume Sky is womb and she’s the moon I am my mother on the wall, with us all I move in water, shore to shore Nothing’s more Only love is all maroon Lapping lakes like leary loons Leaving rope burns Reddish ruse Only love is all maroon Gluey feathers on a flume Sky is womb and she’s the moon

Musical Inspiration: Flume- Bon Iver

I am my mother’s only one
It’s enough

I wear my garment so it shows
Now you know

Only love is all maroon
Gluey feathers on a flume
Sky is womb and she’s the moon

I am my mother on the wall, with us all
I move in water, shore to shore
Nothing’s more

Only love is all maroon
Lapping lakes like leary loons
Leaving rope burns
Reddish ruse

Only love is all maroon
Gluey feathers on a flume
Sky is womb and she’s the moon

Inspired by my all time favorite song. Bittersweet Symphony- The Verve

Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony this life
Trying to make ends meet, you’re a slave to the money then you die
I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah

No change, I can’t change, I can’t change, I can’t change,
but I’m here in my mold , I am here in my mold
But I’m a million different people from one day to the next
I can’t change my mold, no, no, no, no, no

Well, I’ve never prayed,
But tonight I’m on my knees, yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind , I feel free now
But the airwaves are clean and there’s nobody singing to me now

No change, I can’t change, I can’t change, I can’t change,
but I’m here in my mold , I am here with my mold
And I’m a million different people from one day to the next
I can’t change my mold, no, no, no, no, no

‘Cause it’s a bittersweet symphony this life
Trying to make ends meet, trying to find some money then you die
I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah

You know I can’t change, I can’t change, I can’t change,
but I’m here in my mold, I am here in my mold
And I’m a million different people from one day to the next
I can’t change my mold, no,no,no,no,no

Vaporize by P.E.N. on Flickr.
Via Flickr: Day 28. Actually, I’m not really sure what day I’m supposed to be on… :/ anyway… Musical Inspiration: Vaporize- Broken Bells"What amounts to a dream anymore? A crude device; A veil on our eyes A simple plan we’d be different from the rest And never resign to a typical life Common fears start to multiply We realize we’re paralyzed Where’d it go, All that precious time? Did we even try to stem the tide? Why should we waste it on Buying into the same old lies? The longer we wait around The faster the years go by It’s not too late To feel a little more alive Make an escape Before we start to vaporize Doubtless, we’ve been through this So if you want to follow me you should know I was lost then and I am lost now And I doubt I’ll ever know which way to go”

"What amounts to a dream anymore?
A crude device; A veil on our eyes
A simple plan we’d be different from the rest
And never resign to a typical life

Common fears start to multiply
We realize we’re paralyzed
Where’d it go, All that precious time?
Did we even try to stem the tide?

Why should we waste it on
Buying into the same old lies?
The longer we wait around
The faster the years go by

It’s not too late
To feel a little more alive
Make an escape
Before we start to vaporize

Doubtless, we’ve been through this
So if you want to follow me you should know
I was lost then and I am lost now
And I doubt I’ll ever know which way to go”

Oh, you’re changing your heart

Sweetheart bitterheart now I can’t tell you apart

Money can’t buy you back the love that you had then..

Via Flickr: Day 22. I’m so sorry I’m so late uploading these..I’m a couple days behind as well. There is no cable/internet set up in the new place yet, so I’m currently at Starbucks stealing some wifi. Everything is a little crazy right now, so hopefully I don’t get too off track. I finally got a day off and was able to venture down to the lake to use my 85mm before I had to send it back. :( I will be renting it again soon. Musical Inspiration: Intuition- FeistWhat gives what helps the intuition? I know I’ll know I won’t have to be shown The way home And it’s not about a boy Although although They can lead you Break or defeat you A destination known Only by the one Who’s fate is overgrown Piecemeal can break your home in half A love is not complete with only heat And they can tease you Break or complete you And it came a heat wave A merciful save You choose you chose Poetry over prose A map is more unreal than where you’ve been Or how you feel A map is more unreal than where you’ve been Or how you feel And it’s impossible to tell How important someone was And what you might have missed out on And how he might have changed it all And how you might have changed it all for him And how he might have changed it all And how you might have changed it all for him Did I, did I Did I, did I Did I, did I Did I, did I Did I did I miss out on you?” I don’t need you and I know that now. I’m strong enough to be by myself. And it will be that way until I find someone great….someone better than you.

What gives what helps the intuition?
I know I’ll know
I won’t have to be shown
The way home
And it’s not about a boy
Although although

They can lead you
Break or defeat you

A destination known
Only by the one
Who’s fate is overgrown
Piecemeal can break your home in half
A love is not complete with only heat

And they can tease you
Break or complete you

And it came a heat wave
A merciful save
You choose you chose
Poetry over prose
A map is more unreal than where you’ve been
Or how you feel
A map is more unreal than where you’ve been
Or how you feel
And it’s impossible to tell
How important someone was
And what you might have missed out on
And how he might have changed it all
And how you might have changed it all for him
And how he might have changed it all
And how you might have changed it all for him

Did I, did I
Did I, did I
Did I, did I
Did I, did I
Did I did I miss out on you?


I don’t need you and I know that now. I’m strong enough to be by myself. And it will be that way until I find someone great….someone better than you.
