Black Flag

I’ve had a pretty bad month. I’m hopefully going to be bouncing back soon. I’m struggling a bit on content for the blog, so I though I’d share the other side of my brain in this post. I’ve already shared my “Pep Me up! Wooo Yeah! You go girl” song (You’ve Got Another Thing Coming – By Judas Priest) Can you say MANIC?!?

Here’s the bi-polar side of things. Kings X wrote Black Flag back in 1992. I typed out the lyrics, if it’s too much metal for ya πŸ˜‰ The video looks like it was made on a budget of $500 (really hoaky), but the song is great.

A year in the hole had taken its toll

When I took a good look at me

And what a surprise the scope of my eyes could only see black

And I remember someone who was taking them two by two

and lately I’d become the one who’d have laughed at you too!

There was a Black Flag on my morning

There was a Black Flag on my day

There was a Black Flag on everything around and I was walking backwards again I walked in the day, my usual way, looking through a 2 X 4

It colored my view, I couldn’t see you

Or maybe I just wouldn’t

And I remember the time when the sunlight fell on my head

And lately I’d become a member of the walking dead

There was a Black Flag on my morning

There was a Black Flag on my day

There was a Black Flag on everything around and I was walking backwards again and I know that I was wrong.

It was up to me if I wanted to see

And I remember the day when I saw the mask on my face And I knew that it was time to put the thing in its place I’d put the

Black Flag on my morning

I’d put the Black Flag on my day

I’d put the Black Flag on everything around And I was walking backwards again And I know that I was wrongΒ

  1. You know what? I like that song. And I can hear and understand the words. So much music these days is just screeching and you can’t understand any of it.
    I hope you get a bright green and red and purple flag soon.

    • Yes, I didn’t think it was too much metal, and yes, understanding the words is key, IMO.
      I’m ready for my colorful flag any day now! πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¨ (Don’t know what country this is, but I liked the flag πŸ˜‰)

  2. Bipolar is the pits. Hope you are soon feeling much better. I live with a constant underlying depression that at times becomes pretty bad. Mine is compounded by all the health problems in my very small family. But I manage to keep going. And you will too. Take good care of yourself, Ilex.

    • Thank you for your strength! Yes, most of the time, things are good 😊 I totally can’t pin this on bipolar issues… My island has just had a dark cloud over it for the last month. So many costly repairs (thank goodness we had the $), hubby and I are bickering and ice that with a painful medical issue. πŸ€• All issues are getting taken care of, but it’s stressful. I’m hoping Karma is done with me now! Ha ha!

  3. Great bi-polar mix, I always loved the Judas Priest song and somehow I missed Black Flag back in the 90s. I hope things improve and you and your husband start feeling better. You can add more videos of your dogs for your “‘filler posts”, I loved the peek-a-boo post!!
