Evanescence

Yesterday was my first pay day. So, what now? Do I save the money towards bills and rent? Puh-shaw, I declare! I finally bought a new CD.

I hate Wal-Mart. I hate the smiley face that greets you along with the greeters. I hate everything that American corporate chain stands for. I hate Wal-Mart with an intensity that burns. Yet, I can't afford anything else. So, to the electronics section I stumble.

Checking out the cheap DVD's, I found "The Lost Boys". I enjoyed it, and when I first saw it (way back in the day), I thought Michael was sexy. Cruising through the New Release wall in the CD section, my eyes fell on Evanscence - Fallen.

Usually I'm skeptical about "dark looking" CD's that have a hit song out ("Bring Me To Life"), but I decided to try it anyway.

In an age where stealing music is so easy, buying a CD is a momentous occasion for me. I only buy CD's that I "must have". It is a whole experience; fighting with the cellophane wrapper, becoming triumphant over the wrapper, smelling the high quality plastic of the CD, looking at the pictures in the leaflet, reading the lyrics, listening to the CD while re-reading the lyrics, and finally incorporating the CD to the collection. Though,when I buy CD's on a whim (usually due to a shiny cover), amazingly, I'm rarely disappointed.

And my luck has held yet again.

I thoroughly enjoy this CD. Very haunting melody (though, a tad repetitive) with soul retching lyrics. I enjoy "My Immortal", "Tourniquet", and "Imaginary". I relate well to that last one.

BUY IT!


IMAGINARY

I LINGER IN THE DOORWAY
OF ALARM CLOCK SCREAMING
MONSTERS CALLING MY NAME
LET ME STAY
WHERE THE WIND WILL WHISPER TO ME
WHERE THE RAINDROPS
AS THEY'RE FALLING TELL A STORY

IN MY FIELD OF PAPER FLOWERS
AND CANDY CLOUDS OF LULLABY
I LIE INSIDE MYSELF FOR HOURS
AND WATCH MY PURPLE SKY FLY OVER ME

DON'T SAY I'M OUT OF TOUCH
WITH THIS RAMPANT CHAOS - YOUR REALITY
I KNOW WELL WHY LIES BEYOND MY SLEEPING REFUGE
THE NIGHTMARE I BUILT MY OWN WORLD TO ESCAPE

IN MY FIELD OF PAPER FLOWERS
AND CANDY CLOUDS OF LULLABY
I LIE INSIDE MYSELF FOUR HOURS
AND WATCH MY PURPLE SKY FLY OVER ME

SWALLOWED UP IN THE SOUND OF MY SCREAMING
CANNOT CEASE FOR THE FEAR OF SILENT NIGHTS
OH HOW I LONG FOR THE DEEP SLEEP DREAMING
THE GODDESS OF IMAGINARY LIGHT
