song of the day. #13

song of the day.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (nope) so I thought I’d post something fitting this joyous (nope) season. [I used to love Christmas… I really did. But it’s lost its magic.]

I should pause here to say: It is not my intention to offend anyone. I speak for me… for no one else. Well, maybe for Martin Gore. Or… rather he speaks for me.

I’m just going to say it – I’ve always thought this song pretty much summed things up for me. No, I am not going to hurt myself (not intentionally, anyway, but sometimes I’m a klutz… I did smash my hand last week). It’s not the details that reach me. It’s the main theme. If any such higher being exists, am I just here for comic relief?

Yes, I am a heathen. Or something. I don’t know… I’ve never tried to label it. But I don’t see how I could possibly be any other way. This is me.

 I don’t want to start any blasphemous rumours
but I think that god’s got a sick sense of humour
and when I die, I expect to find him laughing


Obviously I am not the owner of any rights to this song, this video, or these lyrics… just everything else… which isn’t much… © 2016 what sandra thinks

  1. Heathen?!? I call my boys that sometimes. Didn’t think anyone used that anymore. 😃

    An excellent song! These guys were great. Actually, they still are, saw them somewhere recently – one of those festivals from the summer on AXS TV or something. 🙂

    • I saw them somewhat recently, too. And a long time ago. Twice. All three times total, I think… unless they were at that one festival… it’s a bit of a blur.

      Interesting that no one has commented on the theme of the song/post. (Not directing that observation at you… just saying…) Wonder if that means I kinda have offended everyone?! Totally possible. But… just my beliefs. Or lack thereof…
