Hey Carl D,

The guys in my band finally listened to me and let me choose a song that Iíve wanted to play for a long time now. Itís called ďThe Real ThingĒ by a band named Faith No More. Itís a rocking tune and it allows me to really beat the crap out of the drums and show off a bit behind the set. The lyrics symbolize to me what happens during a Cluster attack. The feeling I get when I just canít take anymore and I want to give up and put a gun in my mouth and end it all. Of course, I never do. The song also symbolizes for me the feeling I have when I come to this message board and see all the people that are suffering and enduring the same EXACT pain that I go through. This is when I realize that I donít have to put a gun in my mouth and end it all. Besides, I really enjoy beating the crap out of my drums in between all these fucking Cluster attacks. Anyway hereís the lyrics to that tune that I was talking about:

I know the feeling
It is the real thing

The essence of the truth
The perfect moment
That golden moment
I know you feel it too

I know the feeling
It is the real thing

You canít refuse the embrace
Itís like the pattern below the skin
You gotta reach out and pull it all in
And you feel like youíre too close
So you swallow another dose

The pinnacle of happiness
Filling up your soul
You donít think you can take anymore
You never wanna let go

To touch the roots of happiness
Filling up your soul
You donít think you can take anymore
You never wanna let go

To touch the roots of experience
The most basic ingredients
To see the unseen glitter of life
And to feel the dirt, grief, anger and strife

Cherish the certainty of now
It kills you a bit at a time
Cradle the inspiration
It will leave you writhing on the floor

This is so unreal, what I feel
This nourishment, life is bent
Into a shape I can hold
A twist of fate all my own

Just grit your teeth, make no sound
Take a step away and look around
Just clench your fist and close your eyes
Look deep inside, hypnotize

The whisper is but a shout
Thatís what it is all about
Yes, the ecstasy, you can pray
You will never let it slip away

Like the sacred song that someone sings through you
Like the flesh so warm that the thorn sticks into
Like the dream you know will come to life
Try to hold on a little longer, stronger

Itís the jewel of victory
The chasm of misery

And once you have bitten the core
You will always know the flavor

The split second of divinity
You drink up the sky
All of heaven is in your arms
You know the reason why

Itís right there, all by itself
And what you are, there is nothing else
Youíre growing a life within a life
The lips of wonder kiss you inside

And when itís over the feeling remains
It all comes down to this

The smoke clears, I see what it is
That made me feel this wayÖ..

This is so unreal, what I feel
Flood, sell your soul, feel the blood
Pump through your veins, canít explain
The element thatís everything
Just clench your fist and close your eyes
Look deep inside, hypnotize
Yes, the ecstasy, you can pray
You will never let it slip away

Like the echoes of your childhood laughter, ever after
Like the first love urged you to take itís guidance, in silence
Like your heartbeat when you realize youíre dying, but youíre trying
Like the way you cry for a happy ending, endingÖ
I know

If you donít find these lyrics as ďsymbolicĒ to overcoming the relentless torture of Cluster attacks as I do, I understand. My two-year-old daughter has suggested to me that perhaps these lyrics may be more inspirational.

The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout.
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain.
And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again.
