A Ripoff Post by Carey Printer Friendly

One night I was sitting around with friends discussing our favorite music and what songs reflect us. A drunken voice shouted, "This is your life from Fight Club man, hands down." At the time I was slightly disturbed and shrugged it off to the vast quantities of alcohol consumed that night.

Since then I have found myself listening to that song frequently and I am beginning to agree with that person. For lack of a better post, I am enclosing the lyrics of that song and asking the strangelands reader if they can think of a more perfect homage to this insanity we call Life.

This is Your Life - The Dust Brothers featuring Tyler Durden

And you open the door and you step inside

Where inside our hearts

Now imagine that your pain is a white ball of healing light

That's right-your pain, the pain itself is a white ball of healing light

I don't think so

This is your life Good to the last drop

It doesn't get any better than this

This is your life and its ending one minute at a time

This isn't a seminar This isn't a weekend retreat

Where you are now You can't even imagine what the bottom will be like

Only after disaster can we be resurrected

Its only after you've lost everything that you are free to do anything

Nothing is static Everything is evolving

Everything is falling apart

This is your life

It doesn't get any better than this

This is your life

And its ending one minute at a time

You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake

You are the same decaying organic matter as everything else

We are all part of the same compost heap

We are the all singing, all dancing crap of the world

You are not your bank account

You are not the clothes you wear

You are not the contents of your wallet

You are not your bowel cancer

You are not your grand latte

You are not the car you drive

You are not your fucking khakis

You have to give up

You have to give up

You have to realise that someday you will die

Until you know that, you are useless.

I say never let me be complete

I say may I never be content

I say deliver me from Swedish furniture

I say deliver me from clever art

I say deliver me from clear skin and perfect teeth

I say you have to give up

I say evolve, and let the chips fall where they may.

This is your life

Doesn't get any better than this

This is your life

And its ending one minute at a time

You have to give up

You have to give up

I want you to hit me as hard as you can

Welcome to Fight Club

If this is your first night, you have to fight
