Day Two

Somewhere- in the distant depths of Pelham Parkway, a newly crowned 34 year old is blowing out 35 birthday candles and singing Lissette Melendez tunes, dancing around her kitchen as her pernil and maduros finish cooking. Happy Birthday Candy!!!

Today was another productive day for the Changepot. Four dimes, two nickels and twelve pennies converged in four separate pockets. The dimes were discovered at the gas station in Brooklyn as hubs filled up his GOV. The nickels were from the girls during recess, and the pennies appeared in various changepot jean pockets and some from the earlier year's findings that weren't counted until FY 2007.

Here's a video for a friend of mine- a fellow Queensryche fan. Enjoy!



Queensryche - Anybody Listening?

[via FoxyTunes / Queensr├┐che]

(lyrics)

You and I
long to live like the wind upon the water.
If we close our eyes, we'll maybe realize
there's more to life than what we have known.
And I can't believe I've spent so long
living lies I know were wrong inside,
I've just begun to see the light.

Long ago there was a dream,
had to make a choice or two.
Leaving all I loved behind,
for what nobody knew.
Stepped out on the stage, a life
under lights and judging eyes.
Now the applause has died and I
can dream again...

Is there anybody listening?
Is there anyone that sees what's going on?
Read between the lines,
criticize the words they're selling.
Think for yourself and feel the walls
become sand beneath your feet

Feel the breeze?
Time's so near you can almost taste the freedom.
There's a warm wind from the south.
Hoist the sail and we'll be gone,
by morning this will all seem like a dream.
And if I don't return to sing the song,
maybe just as well.
I've seen the news and there's
not much I can do...alone

Is there anybody listening?
Is there anyone who smiles without a mask?
What's behind the words--images
they know will please us?
I'll take what's real. Bring up the lights.

Is there anybody listening?
Is there anyone that sees what's going on?
Read between the lines,
criticize the words they're selling.
Think for yourself and feel the walls...
become sand beneath your feet.
