A little bit of anarchy, but not the hurting kind...

I don't know about the rest of you, but I relate to the lyrics of song really well. Being a perfectionist and a people-pleaser I often feel like I am doing things for someone else and that I have to over-think it all through - including the possible scenarios that could follow - before I can begin. Is the overarching theme something to aspire to all of the time? No, and the song doesn't say that. But every once in a while, you need to stop and just let go, and that is so hard.... and so appealing... to someone like me.

Consequence Free
- Great Big Sea

Wouldn’t it be great, if no one ever got offended
Wouldn’t it be great to say what’s really on your mind
I have always said ‘all the rules are made for bending’
And if I let my hair down, would that be such a crime?

I wanna be consequence free
I wanna be where nothing needs to matter
I wanna be consequence free
just sing Na Na Na Na Na Ne Na Na Na

I could really use, to lose my Catholic conscience
Cuz I’m getting sick of feeling guilty all the time
I won’t abuse it, Yeah I’ve got the best intentions
For a little bit of anarchy but not the hurting kind


I couldn’t sleep at all last night
cause I had so much on my mind
I’d like to leave it all behind,
but you know it’s not that easy


Wouldn’t it be great, if the band just never ended
We could stay out late and we would never hear last call
We wouldn’t need to worry about approval or permission,
we could — slip off the edge and never worry about the fall


(Note: this is post # 501!! I didn't realize that I'd made that many. I guess I started and just couldn't shut up!)
