Falling from society & falling into myself by 

Featured In The Art Of Pain
VAVOOM – Vibration in Art & Words

Inspired by one of the most beautiful songs, Falling Awake by Gary Jules. This represents how society is constantly forming and moulding you to be who they want you to be. And the best feeling is when you fall awake and realise who you have become and just break free. You fall away and fall into yourself…

Eagle in the dark
Feathers in the pages
Monkeys in my heart
Rattling their cages
Found a way to blue
Another ghost to follow
Said its only up to you
It’s the hardest pill to swallow

You never get to choose
You live on what they send you
You know the kind of use
Things you love will get you
One foot in the grave
One foot in the shower
There’s never time to save
You’re paying by the hour

And that’s just the way it goes
Falling awake
And that’s just the way it goes

Slipping through the bars
Aware of the danger
Of riding in the cars
Taking candy from strangers
You’re never out of hand
Never out of pocket
Super sonic man
Do you want to buy a rocket

Well that’s just the way it goes
Falling awake
Falling awake
And that’s just the way it goes
Falling awake
Falling awake

Eagle in the dark
Feathers in the pages
Monkeys in my heart
Are rattling their cages
I could learn to play the game
Learn to run the hustle
If I only had the brains
The money or the muscle

P.S. Get your hands on this song ASAP, its so beautiful… Ahh…

    yes, i love this too .. such movement in the water and i feel like i’ve dropped deep down into it .. that moment when you jump into a pool and you sink to the bottom, when for a few seconds you feel hidden .. really evocative image.

  • Thank you for your wonderful comment PJ! I love the feeling of being at the bottom of a pool, its so quiet, all you here is the movement of the water and the sound of your blood. a good sound! Thank you! ;) x
