  • These R The Thoughts - Alanis Morissette

    13. Feb. 2008, 22:14

    These R the Thoughts
    I have been listening to Alanis Morissette's Unplugged album for about 4 years. I got it when i was in the 7th grade and since then it has never been left aside; never been forgotten at the back of my shelf like several other neglected/regretted purchases.
    Anyways, These R Thoughts was always the song on which i pressed the Skip button. The redundant melody... The parallelism... Alanis' slightly excessively nasal vocals... The almost incomprehensible lyrics at first listen... About 2 years ago, however, i saw the lyrics to it on a website i can't recall right now for obvious reasons. Since then, i have found myself scribbling its lyrics on notebooks, desks, the palm of my hand... I have anxiously recommended it to friends, but the wonder of it doesn't seem to affect them. Can they not feel the poignancy of Alanis' lyrics? How they seem to penetrate and intrude your thoughts, only to come out, painfully, as the sound of her own voice? Is it just me?

    these are the thoughts that go through my head
    in my backyard on a Sunday afternoon
    when I have the house to myself and I am not
    expending all that energy on fighting with my boyfriend

    is he the one that I will marry?
    why is it so hard to be objective about myself?
    why do I feel cellularly alone?
    am I supposed to live in this crazy city?
    can blindly continued fear-induced regurgitated
    life- denying tradition be overcome?

    where does the money go that I send to those in need?
    if we have so much why do some people have nothing still?
    why do I feel frantic when I first wake up in the morning?
    why do you say you are spiritual
    yet you treat people like shit?

    how can you say you're close to God
    and yet you talk behind my back as though I am not
    a part of you?
    why do I say I'm fine
    when it's obvious I'm not?
    why's it so hard to tell you what I want?
    why can't you just read my mind?

    why do I fear that the quieter I am the less you will listen?
    why do I care whether you like me or not?
    why is it so hard for me to be angry?
    why is it such work to stay conscious and so easy to get stuck
    and not the other way around?

    will I ever move back to canada?
    can I be with a lover with whom I am a student and a master?
    why am I encouraged to shut my mouth
    when it gets too close to home?
    why cannot i live in the moment?
