Of "Leave this town" sounding more than familiar in whiny pop punk songs

After being engaged in a particular activity for some time, you begin to notice strange trends, like in the case of overwhelming trend of the phrase ‘leave this town’ in songs (particularly whiny pop punk songs).

I know Yellowcard has them, its also Bowling for Soup’s life supports, of course, Simple Plan can’t miss out the fun, blink 182 savours it too, Sum 41 technically digs it too, and following a search at google, a “mind-googling” result belted out names like Walter Trout, Brodie, The Levellers, Thin Lizzy on the first page.

If everyone were to leave their town, then where to? We all seem to dislike the things naturally attached to us– the place we’re in, the family we’re born into, the body we have (emaciated souls like yh wanting to be fat O_O while the rest of the world watches with envy).

Further substantiates my speculation that the world would be displaced in years (and probably more years) to come and the world’s racial percentages would be relatively equal.

Gah, I need motivation. *tries to kick The Pro-Crastinator out of the door* Need to start on work. Need to start on work. Need to start on work.

  1. Hey,
    “We all seem to dislike the things naturally attached to us– the place we’re in, the family we’re born into, the body we have…..”

    One of your most insightful and profound statements ever stated.

    How true……..

    How does one arm against this malaise and condition……
    How does one see everything everyday with new eyes and appreciation?
    We need so little…..but want so much………..

  2. Hmm, I wouldn’t worry much about that— its the inherent way we through which we ‘better’ ourselves (better is for ourselves to define, they might be a process of deterioration for others). Inadequacies are what push us to strive for the things that we want to achieve.

    (It is also better for some of us to be preoccupied with progress to prevent stagnancy, which is another word for content)

    The notion of progress would definitely be twisted at times and what we’d so wanted in the past would not seem as bright, but from there, we learn, we better ourselves and (hopefully) gradually accept the things we’d once hated. So its okay to dislike and hate.

    How does one see everything everyday with new eyes and appreciation? Just see everything everyday with new eyes and appreciation!

    Ciao.
