I post this at least every few months. Ignore.

How I feel about it all: impressedAlanis
Soundtrack: Alanis Morissette - Still (Dogma Soundtrack)
I've finally decided that this is my favourite song. Stairway to Heaven will have to take second slot.

I am the harm which you inflict
I am your brilliance and frustration
I'm the nuclear bombs if they're to hit
I'm your immaturity and your indignance

I am your misfits and your praised
I am your doubt and your conviction

I am your charity and your rape
I am your grasping and expectation

I see you averting your glances
I see you cheering on the war
I see you ignoring your children
And I love you still
And I love you still

I am your joy and your regret
I am your fury and your elation
I am your yearning and your sweat
I am your faithless and your religion

I see you altering history
I see you abusing the land
I see you and your selective amnesia
And I love you still
And I love you still

I am your tragedy and your fortune
I am your crisis and delight
I am your profits and your prophets
I am your art, I am your bytes
I am your death and your decisions
I am your passion and your plights
I am your sickness and convalescence
I am your weapons and your light

I see you holding your grudges
I see you gunning them down
I see you silencing your sisters
And I love you still
And I love you (still)
I see you lie to your country
I see you forcing them out
I see you blaming each other
And I love you still
I love you still



This is really, really, how I like to think God (whoever he/she/they may be) thinks of Humankind.

An Alanis song is your all-time favorite?? Oh, Kelly, I may have to disown you.

You should! The music is as good as the lyrics.

Oh, God, how I love this song. When I finally got around to seeing Dogma for the first time, like, 2 years ago, I thought the movie was fecking brilliant and hysterical. I thought Alanis was great as God. And then, just when I thought all the good stuff was over because they were rolling the credits, here comes this song. And I thought to myself, "Holy Jaysus H-for-Himself Christ, somebody finally got it right!" Then I bowed myself down and confessed, finally, that I really freaking love Alanis Morissette. I'm sorry, the woman is just cool.

Heh. Alanis is one of my very, very favourites. She's an old soul, I think.
