How Could I Go Back?!

Song of the day:
How!

Could I ever go back
Ever go back
Back to the life
Where I lived amongst the dead?

Dead!

How can I go back?
To live
Amongst the dead

Who have forgotten how to feel
(How to feel!)
And become slaves to memory
(Become slaves!)
And wishful thinking

But your love has set me free
As you awaken every star
That has been sleeping
In the constellation of my soul

How could I go back
How could I go back
To live amongst the dead?!
(Amongst the dead)
How could I go back
How could I go back
To live amongst the dead?!
(Amongst the dead)
How could I go back
To live amongst the dead?!
How could I go back
To live amongst the dead?!

Those who imprisoned beauty
I never want to leave your arms!

So I wait in hope
For your embrace!
For your embrace!
I wait in hope
For your embrace!
I wait in hope
For your embrace!

Illusions of what I thought was love!
Now I have clear sight to see!!
That I have left nothing behind!!!
<--- "Illusions" by As I Lay Dying.

So today I made another round of gluten free (nominally) chocolate chip biscuits. I was again disappointed. Disillusionment... :(

But the baking was fun and it was in celebration of my completing my project (tentatively) (ha!) and my flatmate's birthday yesterday and a general baking vibe that was working up in me as I walked home.

"Illusions" is the most hardcore song ever. I love the words too, although I can't say I understood any of them before I looked at the lyrics sheet. :D

This is a shoutout to my heavy metal sister: I hope you have a good time at your rock concert!

Just because I can, I'm going to make another shoutout in this post: this is to all my sisters and brothers in Christian Union. Respect. Keep representing our JC man!
