I didn't write this, but I've been thinking it...

"Open Your Eyes" by Yes

You've got a great imagination

You carry on in the same old way
No lessons learned from yesterday

Talk of changes lost in pages of paperwork

I believe it...
How can we refuse to see
I've received it...
What could be our final destiny
I believe that...
Still we go on from day to day
Knowing what could be true

Wish I knew
Wish I knew
Wish I knew

Open your eyes and discover
You're not the only one
In disguise
Do you wonder
When the change is gonna come?

Open your eyes

You've got a great imagination

We cast the world, we set the stage
For what could be the darkest age

Short exchanges
From perfect strangers
We'll never know
But wish we knew

I believe it...
It's time to face reality
I've received it...
Questioning the powers that be
I believe it...
Are we too confused to see?

Wish I knew
Wish I knew
Wish I knew
Wish I knew

Open your eyes and discover
You're not the only one
In disguise
Do you wonder
When the change is gonna come?


Open your eyes
You've got a great imagination
Open your eyes
Show it
Show it

Wish we knew

I believe it...
It's time to face reality
I've received it...
Things aren't what they used to be
I believe it...
What I see in you, you see in me

Wish I knew
Wish I knew
Wish I knew
Wish I knew

Open your eyes and discover
You're not the only one
In disguise
Do you wonder
When the change is gonna come?

Change is gonna come
Change is gonna come
Change is gonna come
You've got a great imagination

Change is gonna come
Change is gonna come
Change is gonna come
You've got a sweet imagination

Change is gonna come
Open your eyes
Change is gonna come
Open your eyes
Change is gonna come
You've got a deep imagination coming

Show it
Show it
Show it

Show it
Show it
Show it

(And, yes, I did have to post all the lyrics. Read them.)

Okay, imagine you had a friend, and this friend has had a fairly successful career (by most standards). Maybe even say, in this career, this friend's income might reach $100,000+ some day. Maybe some day soon. But, you notice this friend has been pretty angsty for the last few months, and those bags under the eyes never quite seem to go away.

Say this friend comes to you and says, "Friend? Fuck it. I think I'm going to quit and go work for half my salary at a university job so I can start on a graduate degree."

Oh, and if I work with you? This is not about me.

Really.

These aren't the droids you're looking for. Move along.

Last night, I faced my Paranoia on the stage, and mastered it with style and sweat. But my Paranoia's Rebirth caught me by surprise, and I just barely made it through. It assailed me yet again, Paranoia having Evolved into something slightly new and more nimble than before. At this point, I was reaching my limit. My style was gone, and my Paranoia turned Dirty with the next wave that came through. I tried one more time to make my Paranoia Clean, but I was done for.

Maybe tonight, I'll shake myself off and have another go after first warming up so that I look Brilliant 2U.

There's a sound track to all of this.
