    Objects In The Rear View Mirror May
    Appear Closer Than They Are


    The skies were pure and the fields were green
    And the sun was brighter than it's ever been
    When I grew up with my best friend Kenny
    We were close as any brothers than you ever knew

    It was always summer and the future called
    We were ready for adventures and we wanted them all
    And there was so much left to dream
    And so much time to make it real

    But I can still recall the sting of all
    The tears when he was gone
    They said he crashed and burned
    I know I'll never learn
    Why any boy should die so young

    We were racing, we were soldiers of fortune
    We got in trouble but we sure got around
    There are times I think I see him peeling out of the dark
    I think he's right behind me now and he's gaining ground

    But it was long ago and it was far away,
    Oh God it seems so very far
    And if life is just a highway,
    Then the soul is just a car
    And objects in the rear view mirror
    May appear closer than they are
    And objects in the rear view mirror
    May appear closer than they are
    And objects in the rear view mirror
    May appear closer than they are
    And objects in the rear view mirror
    May appear closer than they are

    And when the sun descended and the night arose
    I heard my father cursing everyone he knows
    He was dangerous and drunk and defeated
    And corroded by failure and envy and hate

    There were endless winters and the dreams would freeze
    Nowhere to hide and no leaves on the trees
    And my father's eyes were blank
    As he hit me again and again and again

    I know I still believe he'd never let me leave,
    I had to run away alone
    So many threats and fears, so many wasted years
    Before my life became my own

    And though the nightmares should be over
    Some of the terrors are still intact
    I'll hear that ugly coarse and violent voice
    And then he grabs me from behind
    And then he pulls me back

    There was a beauty living on the edge of town
    And she always put the top up and the hammer down
    And she taught me everything I'll ever know
    About the mystery and the muscle of love

    The stars would glimmer and the moon would glow
    I'm in the back seat with my Julie like a Romeo
    And the signs along the highway all said,
    Caution! Kids At Play!

    Those were the rights of spring and we did everything
    There was salvation every night
    We got our dreams reborn and our upholstery torn
    But everything we tried was right

    She used her body just like a bandage,
    She used my body just like a wound
    I'll probably never know where she disappeared
    But I can see her rising up out of the back seat now
    Just like an angel rising up from a tomb

    And objects in the rear view mirror
    May appear closer than they are

    And objects in the rear view mirror
    May appear closer than they are

    She used her body just like a bandage,
    She used my body just like a wound
    I'll probably never know where she disappeared
    But I can see her rising up out of the back seat now


    That was for you Nadim.

    That's beautiful AA. A lot of personal pain in there, I think. You ever wanna chat, you know where to find me.

    Hey Nad!

    I know that I said I didn't want to know anything about the bloke who was driving the other car, but I was talking to Kelly today and she mentioned it to me.

    He's been given two years for "reckless driving resulting in death of an innocent," is how Kelly put it.

    Shocking. We lose a friend, a son, a brother, a cousin, a soul mate. And he is going to be back on the streets before he even hits middle-age.

    You want personal pain?
    How's this for personal pain:

    A poem by Justin Knox
    I love my Mac 10 more than anyone will know.
    I caress it in the night as if it were my hoe.
    So when I am lonely,
    And Jade is not around to play,
    I like to lick my beautiful Imac all day.
    In front of a transparent blue monitor, nothing could be hipper.
    I put wave 44 on repeat and play with my coralskipper.
    My lovely, shiny Apple, so keen and so posh.
    Neither woman nor man shall ever come between me and my Macintosh.

    THE END

    Dammit Nad, I've got five hours to do the last third of the second Information Systems essay, and I'm bored! YOU KNOW I CANNOT WORK WHEN I AM BORED! WHAT'S A GUY TO DO!?

    Stop messing around on the JC, for one, I suppose...

    Not to be rude or offensive or anything, but which Brit was it that I was having the conversation with about Han's droid Bollux?

    Because I still cannot read the word nad without laughing for the same exact reason.







    Am I going to hell for that?

    I think it was me you were talking to about Bollux. Hehe.

    Don't worry about the Nad thing, we all do that!

    The best fun is watching Nad chug a yard of ale, and we're all yelling "Go Nad! Go Nad! Go Nad! Gonad! Gonad! Gonad!"

    [face_laugh]

    You know what a gonad is, right?!

    When we were making jokes at Nad's expense (scusi dude!), gonads were the same as bollocks!
