An entry from last night that I didn't get to post

I left the update screen open when I got offline yesterday afternoon, and so, later on, I sat down and typed an entry. However, I never made it online. So here it is now. Rejoice.

Bad by U2, 8 November 1987

If you twist and turn away
If you tear yourself in two again
If I could, you know I would
If I could, I would
Let it go

Surrender
Dislocate

If I could throw this lifeless lifeline to the wind
Leave this heart of clay
See you walk, walk away
Into the night
Through the day
If I could, through myself, set your spirit free
I'd lead your heart away
See you break, break away
Into the light
Through the day
Into the half-light
Through the flame

Sing it
Hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo
Hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo

To let it go, uh-huh, and so fade away
To let it go, uh-huh, and so fade away
I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
Wide awake
I'm not sleeping, oh no
I'm not sleeping

If they should ask, well maybe they'd
Tell me what I should say
True colours fly in blue and black
Bruised silken sky and burning flag
Colours crash, collide in bloodshot eyes
If I could, you know I would
If I could, I would
Let it go

This desperation
Separation
Condemnation
In temptation
Isolation
Revelation
Isolation
Revelation
Let it go, uh-huh, and so fade away
Let it go, uh-huh, and so fade
Fade
Fade away
Not fade away
No, no, not fade away
No, no, not fade away, hey, hey
Let it go, uh-huh, and so fade away
To let it go, uh-huh, and so fade
Fade
Fade away
Fade away
Not fade away
No, no, not fade away
Hey, hey, mmm

I'm wide awake
I'm wide awake
Wide awake
I'm not sleeping, oh no
I'm not sleeping, oh no

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
Goodbye Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
I'm pleased to meet you
I hope you guess my name, oh yeah
You know I'm pleased to meet you
I hope you guess my name, oh yeah

To let it go, uh-huh, and so fade away
To let it go, uh-huh
Fade ... fade ... fade away

11 O'clock Tick Tock by U2, 5 June 1983

11 O'clock Tick Tock!

It's cold outside
It gets so hot in here
And the boys and girls collide
To the music in my ear
I hear the children crying
And I know it's time to go
I hear the children crying
Take me home
Uh!

A painted face
And I know we haven't long
We thought that we had the answers
It was the questions we had wrong
I hear the children crying
And I know it's time to go
I hear the children crying
Take me home

Say so, say so
Say so, say so
Two, three, four

La-lo-la-lo, la-lo-la-lo, la-lo-lo
La-la-lo-lo-la-lo, la-lo-la-lo, la-lo-lo
Sing with me!
La-lo, la-lo-la-lo, la-lo-lo
La-la-lo-lo-la-lo, la-lo-lo-lo, la-lo

Say so, say so
Say so, say so
Something (?)
Hold on
Hold on tightly
Hold on
Hold on tightly

Pick it up!

Will you dance with me?
Dance with me!

Call out Your name
Call out in shame
Call out Your name
Call out!
Call out, you better call out

Thank you
Goodnight

I love those two songs. They really speak to me ... Bad is just an awe-inspiring song, particularly on the Rattle And Hum video, and there's some really brilliant quotes in 11 O'clock Tick Tock, particularly my favourite of all U2 quotes, 'We thought that we had the answers/It was the questions we had wrong'.

In completely unrelated news, I am very close to completing my SOR assignment. I'm just working out some quotes now, and tomorrow I'll send it off to myself at school and print it off before SOR. I'm up the creek without a paddle, lifejacket, or boat for English, though. I think I can get my lines memorised, but I sure don't know if Sam will get his lines memorised, and I really hope we don't go on Monday because we don't have a costume yet and I doubt Sam'll get one tomorrow. We need a sword and soldier's clothing, neither of which we have. I think we could borrow a sword off Jamie, and just improvise the costumes. I don't know. I need to go practice those lines. And, of course, I'm completely up the creek with Maths C. Shit, shit, shit. Exam's on Thursday and Friday and I don't think I know near enough. I am so not prepared. This is a repeat of term one. That was awful. I performed so poorly then. I can kiss this year's Dux goodbye. Oh well, I had my moments of glory in grades eight and nine, and hopefully there'll be another moment next year.

I've just realised how shocking a procrastinator I am, and how it's really costing me. I keep on meaning to get fit, to exercise, and stuff like that, and I never get round to it because I'm too bloody lazy. I keep on meaning to study and really get into my schoolwork and try my hardest, but I don't. I keep on meaning to do a lot of things, but I don't. I need to stop this procrastination. This procrastination stops now. I'm going to actually do some study. Yes, it's remarkable. I'm actually going to apply myself and work. I'm not going to procrastinate. Not. If anyone cares to do me a favour, keep on reminding me not to procrastinate. Remind me to study and such. Thanks. I need to break this procrastination. It's getting me nowhere.
