Devo Song of the Day: Gates of Steel

I'm actually not going to write about the song directly. At least, not at first. For some reason, I feel by writing headlines that advertise daily content, I should go ahead and get on the bandwagon. 

After all, this is a place where I write things. I have this little white box that welcomes me when I am alone at night, after I have finally finished work for the day. 

I don't feel free. 

What is freedom?

There are degrees, I suppose. I write this from a safe place compared to what I see in many parts of the world. But, I still feel like I'm not quite able to do what I want to do.

What do I want to do?

At the moment, it seems like an irrelevant question. 

At the moment, I'm relaxed listening to music, reflecting on where I am in this moment. 

To me, freedom is able to be able to capture these things, these meaningless words that make up a version of my memory of who I was.

But I don't feel free.

Challenge me.

I didn't really finish this article. I don't know what to say. I have to limit what I say in public, and it kills me. I feel like I'm holding myself back so I can keep a job, stay in a career.

But, this song makes me want to push away from that security and see what happens. Every time I hear it, I'm reminded that I was young once, I'm still young now, but that will soon be over and I'll have missed any opportunity to launch into a new way of living and being.

I'm living the life of a ghost right now. I'm going through the motions.

Now twist away... now twist and shout... Unlock the secret voice.

How do I do that?

How do I do anything?
