Arcade Fire - Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)
They heard me singing and they told me to stop Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock Sometimes I wonder if the world’s so small Can we ever get away from the sprawl? Living in the sprawl Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains And there’s no end in sight I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights
“Most true is it that ‘beauty is in the eye of the gazer.’ My master’s colourless, olive face, square, massive brow, broad and jetty eyebrows, deep eyes, strong features, firm, grim mouth, — all energy, decision, will, — were not beautiful, according to rule; but they were more than beautiful to me; they were full of an interest, an influence that quite mastered me, — that took my feelings from my own power and fettered them in his. I had not intended to love him; the reader knows I had wrought hard to extirpate from my soul the germs of love there detected; and now, at the first renewed view of him, they spontaneously arrived, green and strong! He made me love him without looking at me.”—Charlotte Bronte (via fleurishes)
IT DOESNT SNOW LIKE WTF. WHY DO WE EVEN HAVE WINTER IF IT DOESNT SNOW so yeah.. it doesnt snow, it doesnt get really cold compared to america but i like winter because i can drink tea and sip coffee while wearing heaps of layers and read books and cuddle myself in bed :) whats spring like in america?
oh that sounds nice. i like looking at snow. a lot of people love snow but i’m not so much of a fan. it doesn’t snow here either though! at least in oregon. sometimes, but they are really awful and weak and barely anything covers the ground. spring is so rainy but flowers and blooming and everything feels really positive so i like it!
