Flaming Lips – Do You Realize??
I am not afraid of death, but I do avoid pain. My child once feared that I would die while he was away at sleep-away Scout camp. The camp counselor called me to let me know. I spoke to my child, assured him I was ok. The next day I drove up to the camp to see what was going on with his fear of death.
According to kid’s rules, if one of the older campers was spooking them (as they do at camp), they would never say. I suspect they probably were. Some parents raise monsters.
A few years later we went to see, “Weezer” and “The Flaming Lips” at Homdel , N.J. The the first two two Flaming Lips songs were added to his play list. The third – well he’s young , he hasn’t been there yet. Maybe he has and I just don’t know it.
I have very brief opinions about what what the songs in these videos discuss at the end of this post.
All marketing it can be said, deals with the fear of death and running away from it, and the attraction of desires of temptation. More to come on this because this was intended to comfort a friend in some small measure, but I realize now that I have more to say on this topic.
