Sunday Samples 312 (three days late)

January 23, 2013

This last Monday was the one that idiots everywhere seem to have dubbed “Blue Monday”, on the basis of one of those awful bits of pseudo-mathematical gibberish. This one I hate more than most because not only does it make all mathematicians look ridiculous by association, it always tricks me into thinking people are talking about the song by New Order, which I will now listen to until the rage subsides.

How does it feel
To treat me like you do
When you’ve laid your hands upon me
And told me who you are?
I thought I was mistaken
I thought I heard your words
Tell me, how do I feel?
Tell me now, how do I feel?

Those who came before me
Lived through their vocations
From the past until completion
They’ll turn away no more
And I still find it so hard
To say what I need to say
But I’m quite sure that you’ll tell me
Just how I should feel today

I see a ship in the harbour
I can and shall obey
But if it wasn’t for your misfortune
I’d be a heavenly person today
And I thought I was mistaken
And I thought I heard you speak
Tell me, how do I feel?
Tell me now, how should I feel?

Now, I stand here waiting

I thought I told you to leave me
While I walked down to the beach
Tell me, how does it feel
When your heart grows cold?
