With a broken wing you sail

I had this idea about posting dark, despairing images of my boy avatar wandering the ephemeral lands to the soundtrack of Peter Murphy lyrics. I was foiled by the fact that the man was ON SOMETHING when he wrote them. How can you make meaning from something like the following, for example?

If the birds can reach the sky -- to this land --
I'll be with you. Till the sun bursts from your side,
with my hands I reach to you.

when you think your chance is passing by
when you blow your moon away
I'll bleed like the reed, fall with your knife.
it's here I'll be with you

Anyway. Pretend you can listen to the song (Peter Murphy's "I'll Fall with your Knife") instead. It makes a strange internal sense when you sing along to it...

Then, you'll understand why my boy avatar is standing around in fierce (Schadenfreude) pants and a black leather jacket, tossing his pretty girlish locks. You know. It was a Peter Murphy moment.

You know the way
it throws about
it takes you in
and spits you out
when you desire
to conquer it
to feel you're higher
to follow it
you must be clean
with mistakes
that you do mean
move the heart
switch the pace
look for what seems out of place

I like my Pete Murphy, and also your taste in just about everything.... ;)

...oh and I just noticed my boy avatar has the exact same skin nailed to his mesh. I feel....paranoid now!
