Overkill

Yet again, I find my heart heard and understood through music... my life stresses and worries, my fears, my love of a good song- are met through "Overkill" by Benjamin Gate today. I urge you to listen to it if you're not familiar with Benjamin Gate. They definitely rock- so turn your speakers up if you want an 'experience' of it.

I can't get to sleep
I think about the implications
Of diving in too deep
And possibly the complications
Especially at night
I worry over situations
I know will be alright
Perhaps it's just imagination

Day after day it reappears
Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
Ghosts appear and fade away

I can't get get to sleep
It only beings exasperation
It's time to walk the streets
Smell the desperation
At least there's pretty lights
And though there's little variation
It nullifies the night
From overkill

I can't get to sleep
I think about the implications
Of diving in too deep
And possibly the complications
Especially at night
I worry over situations
That I know will be alright
It's just overkill

I'm obviously a little older than you . . . I remember those lyrics being sung by "Men at Work" in the big, bad '80s. :o)

That's so funny! I listened to some Men at work back in the 80s- but never had their tapes. I'll have to go see if I can find it online somewhere and listen to the original. Thanks Nancy- that gave me a good chuckle. :)
