Let the right one in

Ever listen to the lyrics in modern music?

Chances are, you have never taken the time to find out what thoughts you are accepting into your mind as you listen to cheery tunes on the radio or commercial TV.

Next time you hear a catchy tune, try reading the lyrics out loud. Without the music or melodies. See if you can stomach the messages you have letting in.
I'm a slow motion accident
Lost in coffee rings and fingerprints
I don't wanna feel anything but I do
And it all comes back to you
Some may fancy that simple commercial speech has little impact upon us. Yet those who watch TV incessantly, do more than waste away a half-hour at a time. They let things in that suck away their very souls.
