This is getting too depressing! I find Matt's music empowering too!
The Bright End Of Nowhere, Suburbia's "there ain't nothing here at all another day a week the mall", Double Life's "this is all there is, roll the dice", Going All The Way "if there's nothing left to die for, and all this beauty if just decay" etc are all things I can personally relate to and take power from. Most people would find those lyrics depressing, like we aren't living for something greater, but I find it empowering. "Finding beauty in the dissonance" (that's Tool, not MG).
Speaking of which... does anyone listen to Tool? I ask this because on their new album they have a song called "Lost Keys (Blame Hoffman)". Now, for those of you who are unfamiliar with who Hoffman is, he's the person who discovered LSD (acid). Finding car keys when you're tripping can be quite hard, it's a typical situation. Anyway, I'm sure you're all familiar with Tripoli. "Must have lost my mind when I lost the car keys on my way out". The name of the song is Tripoli. Anyway, this might have been covered before and I may well look like quite the fool now, but am I right? And if so, does that mean Matt's a tripper?
