You know the bed feels warmer
Sleeping here alone
You know I dream in color
And do the things I want
You think you got the best of me
Think you had the last laugh
Bet you think that everything good is gone
Think you left me broken down
Think that I’d come running back
Baby you don’t know me, ’cause you’re dead wrong
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn’t mean I’m over ’cause you’re gone
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger
Just me, myself and I
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone
You heard that I was starting over with someone new
But told
As always, more to come.

Right-Right turn off the lights
We gonna lose our minds tonight
What’s the dealio?

I love when it’s all too much
Five A.M. turn the radio up
Where’s the rock and roll?

Party crasher penny snatcher
Call me up if you’re a gangster
Don’t be fancy just get dancy
Why so serious?

So raise your glass if you are wrong
In all the right ways all my underdogs
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty dirty little freaks

Won’t you come on and come on and raise your glass?
Just come on and come on and raise your glass

Slam-Slam Oh Hot Damn
What part of “party” don’t cha understand?
Wish you’d just freak out (freak out already)

Can’t stop coming in hot
I should be locked up right on the spot
It’s so on right now (it’s so fucking on right now)

Party crasher penny snatcher (uh-uh)
Call me up if you’re a gangster (uh-uh)
Don’t be fancy just get dancy
Why so serious?

So raise your glass if you are wrong
In all the right ways all my underdogs
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty dirty little freaks

Won’t you come on and come on and raise your glass?
Just come on and come on and raise your glass
Won’t you come on and come on and raise your glass?
Just come on and come on and raise your glass

Oh Shit my glass is empty, that sucks

So if you’re too school for cool
And you’re treated like a fool (treated like a fool)
You can choose to let it go
We can always we can always
Party on our own, so raise your Oh Fuck

So raise your glass if you are wrong
In all the right ways all my underdogs
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty dirty little freaks

(So raise) So raise your glass if you are wrong
In all the right ways all my underdogs (oh-yeah)
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty dirty little freaks

Won’t you come on and come on and raise your glass?
Just come on and come on and raise your glass
Won’t you come on and come on and raise your glass? (for me)
Just come on and come on and raise your glass (for me)

For 8/19/18 ~ Sing Along Song – Destroyer by the Kinks

flinchflin(t)SH/

verb

1.  make a quick, nervous movement of the face or body as an instinctive reaction to surprise, fear or pain.

I have been flinching a lot of that lately.  But today I am trying to find peace.  I do that by listening to music.  I found this video because I was looking up the word paranoia.  Hi my name is J-Dub and I like to make up stuff.  Well actually I hate it.  My mind is working overtime.  Stop damn thoughts!

“Destroyer”
Met a girl called Lola and I took her back to my place
Feelin’ guilty, feelin’ scared, hidden cameras everywhere
Stop! Hold on. Stay in control

Girl, I want you here with me
But I’m really not as cool as I’d like to be
‘Cause there’s a red, under my bed
And there’s a little yellow man in my head
And there’s a true blue inside of me
That keeps stoppin’ me, touchin’ ya, watchin’ ya, lovin’ ya

Paranoia, the destroyer.
Paranoia, the destroyer.

Well I fell asleep, then I woke feelin’ kinda’ queer
Lola looked at me and said, “ooh you look so weird.”
She said, “man, there’s really something wrong with you.
One day you’re gonna’ self-destruct.
You’re up, you’re down, I can’t work you out
You get a good thing goin’ then you blow yourself out.”

Silly boy ya’ self-destroyer. Silly boy ya’ self-destroyer

Silly boy you got so much to live for
So much to aim for, so much to try for
You blowing it all with paranoia
You’re so insecure you self-destroyer

(And it goes like this, here it goes)
Paranoia, the destroyer
(Here it goes again)
Paranoia, the destroyer

Doctor, Doctor help me please, I know you’ll understand
There’s a time device inside of me, I’m a self-destructin’ man
There’s a red, under my bed
And there’s a little green man in my head
And he said, “you’re not goin’ crazy, you’re just a bit sad
‘Cause there’s a man in ya, gnawin’ ya, tearin’ ya into two.”

Silly boy ya’ self-destroyer.
Paranoia, the destroyer

Self-destroyer, wreck your health
Destroy friends, destroy yourself
The time device of self-destruction
Light the fuse and start eruption

(Yea, it goes like this, here it goes)
Paranoia, the destroyer
(Here’s to paranoia)
Paranoia, the destroyer
(Hey hey, here it goes)
Paranoia, the destroyer
(And it goes like this)

Paranoia, the destroyer
(And it goes like this.)

So, … Milestone Moment

I am housekeeping my blog.  My it is dusty here!  Achoo. Achoo.

I had 13 saved drafts and I am now down to seven.  That means minus six.  A few (three) were deleted as they were single words on a page.  Weird to see that word, standing there like words do ;).  Isolated.  And me curious about what the hell was I thinking.

I published one #FlashFiction ~ 8/18/18 written back in June but time stamped with today’s date to mark when I hit publish.  The other two were also published today but privately.  I just learned how to do that.  The dark stuff meant for my “no one but me” journal.  See I can keep secrets!  Though lately I have been a bit too trusting so I have decided that I am going back into obscurity.

Out of the remaining seven there are several (three) that are pictures only.  Being saved for a rainy day.  Making current state of drafts as good as it gets.  Not feeling like I want to continue on and re-work those final four.

I hit a milestone today – 1700 posts since starting J-Dub’s Grin and Bear It in earnest back in July-ish of 2016.  This post being 1701!  Unreal to me.

Two freaking years y’all.  Time is a B word again.  Actually I do have three very short posts from August of 2015 but the blog did not take off.  And for a while I was Musings and Ramblings or Ramblings and Musing.  Then I changed my name and theme/color scheme in a previous housekeeping effort.

If I had it to do all over, I’d go completely anonymous, not just my family’s names but me too.  I’d make my hometown some place in Canada.  Ha!  Other than that, I would not change a thing.  And in the immortal words of the Isley Brothers ~ It’s your thing, do what you want to do.  Disclaimer: The following is not mine.  It is a link.
