SLS – Stupid

STUPID

I wanted to pick this song for today, but I knew my blogging bestie would be picking it too. So because I know she loves me, I told her I wanted to feature this song. She is the sweetest Caramel flavoured loveliest person I know, so she told me to go for it as she had other songs up her sleeve.

I would resent anyone else calling me stupid, but at times, I am only too aware of my own stupidity. Being an energetic, emotional, passionate bundle of desires and dreams packaged within a pretty face and attractive body can give rise to opportunities to be particularly stupid. I trust Ben to keep an eye on me and warn me before I pursue a very stupid path. Sexy and stupid are a volatile mix!

This song was written by  Duke Erikson, Shirley Manson, Steve Marker and Butch Vig, who made up a band named Garbage. My friend introduced them to me and I thought they were cool!.

You pretend you’re high
You pretend you’re bored
You pretend you’re anything
Just to be adored
And what you need
Is what you get

Don’t believe in fear
Don’t believe in faith
Don’t believe in anything
That you can’t break

You stupid girl
You stupid girl
All you had you wasted
All you had you wasted

What drives you on (What drives you on)
Can drive you mad (Can drive you mad)
A million lies to sell yourself
Is all you ever had

Don’t believe in love
Don’t believe in hate
Don’t believe in anything
That you can’t waste

You stupid girl
You stupid girl
Can’t believe you fake it
Can’t believe you fake it

Don’t believe in fear
Don’t believe in pain
Don’t believe in anyone
That you can’t tame

You stupid girl
You stupid girl
All you had you wasted
All you had you wasted

You stupid girl
You stupid girl
Can’t believe you fake it
Can’t believe you fake it

You stupid girl
You stupid girl
Can’t believe you fake it
Can’t believe you fake it

You stupid girl.

My reply was a little over-simplifed Jenna, and I didn’t mean it to sound demeaning or critical if it did in any way. I tend to be a bit guarded in my speech when it comes to spiritual gifts though, as it weirds many people out.

To be a little more accurate, it’s not so much about self-control as it is awareness. When you can be in tune with yourself enough to realize that what you’re feeling is somebody else’s emotion, you can push it aside more easily and not be influenced by it. It’s still more difficult than it sounds. Self-awareness isn’t easy.

Nothing wrong with having fun either though. If you feel Ben’s desire, for example, you can drink it in and use it to fuel your own, which obviously leads to some hot times. Overall though, it’s all about balance as you said.

Don’t worry, I was not offended in any way.
I am always learning about myself and my emotions.
I often think Ben understands my emotional reaction to things better than I do. It’s wonderful to be with someone who cares so much.

Do I remember this band? I am not sure. There’s something about the sound of this that sounds familiar, but I certainly don’t think I would have bought into a group called “Garbage”.

I have just published my attempt Jenna. Let me know what you think.

Jenna I have listened to a lot of garbage, but this is the first time that I actually listened to Garbage and they sound nice. I read that they love the Green Bay Packers and I have always been a cheese head.
