"You just need to achieve something that rings true"
Just bought "Playing the Angel," the new Depeche Mode CD. It's got a lot of great tracks on it, including "John the Revelator" and "Precious," but I think my favorite is "A Pain That I'm Used To."

I don't know what the philosopy Depeche Mode has behind it, but it really could be applied as analysis of our everyday lives. A bit of a dissertation on how we are so afraid to move outside of our own comfort zones that we would rather stay with a situation that harms us, but is familiar. That we get used to the pain to the point where we like it, prefer it. "All this running around; Well it's getting me down; Just give me a pain that I'm used to." Think of how many times each of us has chosen to stay with the pain we're used to to avoid making hard decisions. I know I have in the past.

And on the horrible note of pain that we're all getting used to, happy Valentine's Day everyone. *grin*

    Those lyrics have a pretty wide-reaching meaning. I can definitely identify with them. They remind me a lot of the situation at home with my mom--luckily I got out of that pain--and become UNused to it. I realized just how desenitized I was to my mom's insanity the moment I arrived in the airport. Man. Geez. What a depressing comment. I'm sorry. Happy WoWentines day <3
