As the first Ritual Drama came to an end and the Temple Guardian unsealed the Temple.
I find I am leading the fates out, bowing to the East and then to the Guardian as we leave. I stand in the hallway and I truly wonder just what had happened. I felt as if I was still Limma but there were Sue and Stuart thanking us for our hard work . So I guess I was back in the present.
Sue announces that we are meeting at the pub which is literally next door. I can’t get my head round that really. I end up asking Steve, Katie, Sue and Stuart if they are going to the pub because I still feel otherworldly. They must think I am an alcoholic!
Some of our number are too tired after traveling and go straight to bed. I go to my room and change, I begin to feel a little more myself and decided to join the others at the pub.
I meet some companions at the door and we go to the pub. We all all meet up those of us who have not fallen into the arms of Morpheus.
We all had a great chat and discussed what we had done and what we would do tomorrow. I knew I was among friends.💜
Jim Adams of NewEpicAuthor has given us a huge theme for Song Lyric Sunday. It is: Hurt/Pain/Agony/Suffer. Distress, discomfort, misery, torture and torment are all close synonyms, so there should be a lot of songs out there relating to this topic that you can choose from.
Well yes Jim that’s a wide canvas you have given us.
I have chosen The Drugs Don’t Work. By The Verve.
Lead singerRichard Ashcroftwrote the song in early 1995. He briefly mentioned it in an interview at the time, relating it to his drug usage: “There’s a new track I’ve just written […] It goes ‘the drugs don’t work, they just make me worse, and I know I’ll see your face again’. That’s how I’m feeling at the moment. They make me worse, man. But I still take ’em. Out of boredom and frustration you turn to something else to escape.”
Ashcroft also performed the song when the band was touring in support ofA Northern Soul.
The song was eventually recorded forUrban Hymns. The album’s producer, Chris Potter later referred to it as both the best song and best vocal he had ever recorded.
The single was noted duringChannel 4‘s100 Greatest #1 Singlesprogramme as unintentionally capturing the spirit of the nation as it was released the day afterPrincess Dianadied. Info from Wikipedia
The song is also linked with death of his father – who died from a blood clot when Richard was just 11 years old – and his wife’s Kate Radley’s father, who died of cancer.
Either way this is a beautiful and sad song that encompasses every word in your challenge.
