speakershine. [ten years too late]

By Six-Out

humming reggae beats-like backdropped
star.spun songs of misgiving.
drinking my way to freedom- 40 ounces at a time.
I'm sure I'm not alone. and we're simply sentient.
so.fucking.magnificent.

en un sentido somos invencibles
pisarme como el agua -aclamaciones
a el que consiguió lejos

malos pescados en una placa de corazones quebrados
so close to perfect. tonight we'll dance.
to serenades screamed in native-syllables.
these voices take me to times I've longed to forget.
the past is vicious.
and I'm far too vulnerable.

medios tributos del asno
y un poco también cerca de hogar
con verdades incoherentes. somos todos los mentirosos
y cómo falto esas consonancias
esta música de la tierra. me toma el hogar

y dios. es tan hermoso

es imposible cubrir mis ojos
pero. No sé si incluso deseo a.

my eyes are almost as sore as my hands.
and my heart is almost as broken as my wrists.
caressing harmonies with something almost as sublime.
and we're going the wrong way on the right path.


pero, las estrellas no lloran más
han encontrado su brillo caído

it's blasting in my stereo.

    I always come back to re-read this. The intertwining of language, the sense of longing and misplaced hope... amazing.

    Sublime was awesome Brian... but his drug addiction wasn't. :( All the great ones seem to be fighting undefeatable demons, it's a shame really.

    You're dead to me.

  • A former member wrote: a passionate and articulate reminiscent dedication of your native music, it really evokes some beautiful and intrinsic human longing/cognition, the mushc&spanish a familiarity and homestead.

  • A former member wrote: then "but. I don't know if I want it?" as though having gone too far to fully accept it as you once were, even the stars have found their fallen brightness, so where is yours? this aches of searching..belonging.

    Hmm, you caught the bit that was too close to home. Good job. :)

    I think love is a Universal language and this hun, needs no translation. For the love you give to this piece is sparkling on it's own. Bravo! Julia~

    I think on all the good times I've spent, listening to brad, eric and buds (and luie's, among others) contribution to music and it brings a tear to my eye.

    Gone, ten years. I think Brad would have cringed at the world we're living in. Oh well. The music goes unchanged even if the good word goes unspoken. Six, you are smooth fire, daddy-o. Loved it. Faving it.

  • Alanarchy On Friday, May 26, 2006, Alanarchy (1141)By person wrote:

    And, yeah. I did think the spanish read like silk. Beautiful. But I didn't get a lick besides a few words. Any chance you can send a translation my way, dog? If not, i'll work it out. Once again, man. Loved it.

    this is beautiful Jon... I wish I understood Spanish. And the title.... superb. Thank you.

  • A former member wrote: oh hell yes

  • A former member wrote: I bet 99% of the people that read this will comment about how beautiful the Spanish is without understanding a word of it.
