Affirmations

I've talked a lot about beliefs lately, and that just made the video choice for this week really simple. It's Savage Garden (yay!) with Affirmation. A song in which they say the various things they believe. I remember hearing this song as a kid, and thinking "Damn, this is awesome" and it did actually change my thoughts on some things. I find that I believe a lot of the things they, or at least Darren Hayes, the guy who wrote and sings it, does. I might disagree on one or two things, but not much.


Savage garden - affirmation by smokey3769

Disagreement is my challenge and a question I have for you good folks. I agree with a lot, so posting what I disagree with would be a lot easier, so, my question is, what do you disagree with? Or if the list of disagreements is somehow longer, what do you agree with?
Lryics (This won't be common, it's only cos I'm asking a question regarding the lyrics)
I believe the sun should never set upon an argument
I believe we place our happiness in other people's hands
I believe that junk food tastes so good because it's bad for you
I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do
I believe that beauty magazines promote low self esteem
I believe I'm loved when I'm completely by myself alone

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love 'til you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe you can't control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
I believe your most attractive features are your heart and soul
I believe that family is worth more than money or gold
I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair
I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love 'til you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness
I believe that wedded bliss negates the need to be undressed
I believe that God does not endorse tv evangelists
I believe in love surviving death into eternity

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love 'til you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye(Repeat 2)
Until you say goodbye
Oh no no no no no ( Repeats itself many times fading)
------------------------------------------------------------------
I disagree first off that the sun shouldn't set on an argument, arguments need to end. Unless I've just interpreted the lyrics wrong. I don't believe I'm loved when I'm by myself, I'm not very fond of myself, and am constantly looking for others to give me the love I cannot give myself, when I shouldn't. Finally I disagree that the only people who disagree are millionaires, I'm pretty poor, but here I am disagreeing lol. I've also disagreed a lot with people, but again, I could just be missing the point. So yes, what do you disagree/agree with?

I promise something more rocky and intense next week.

  2. @Mai Yang Haha awesome :) It is a nice song yeah, but there seems to be a lack of love for 90's pop around here lol, so don't expect more Garden for a while.

  4. @Mai Yang Hehe I miss them too, but Darren Hayes, the lead singer and songwriter is still going, and he's just as good as, if not better than, the collective :)

  9. @My 2 Pesos Take delight that they'll never know the depths of awesome that you have lol. It doesn't make you gay to like SG.

  10. I like the song, yet my only belief to this day is that believing in things might be a bad idea.
    I try to stay open to all plausibility.

  11. My brothers used to be obsessed with Savage Garden a looong time ago. I used to make fun of them for it on a nigh constant basis

  12. SG - Sexy Gays?
    That's pretty gay

    ReplyDelete
  13. @Bob SG = Savage Garden, and finding guys hot doesn't make you gay lol. Homosex with them though, that's a whole other matter. Although Darren Hayes is gay, and in a gay marriage.

  14. Mark: Hmm, other than Sexy Gays I thought he meant Star Gate.. heh. Savage Garden did not even come to mind.

    When I find someone/something hot, I wouldnt mind having sex with her/him/it.. so I think it is, but whateva. :P

  15. @Bob "If it's pretty, f**k it, there is no gay". Words to live by lol.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Mark: You got me.. I guess I'm contradicting myself here, huh? :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I disbelieve (??) the video site because the video isn't working for me hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  18. @Bob It's almost worth going back to work to say that to my boss, but he insists that my bisexuality is simply a matter of if it's pretty I'll shag it. In case yanks don't have that slang shag means well, the word I censored earlier lol. It's quite fun when you use slang from one country in another.

  19. @Hasidic Plumber Haha, really? that sucks :( I specifically chose them because I hoped they wouldn't be dicks with who could watch it. At this rate I'll just have to upload them from my computer or something, but then the great God's at Google might get mad at me.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Mark: I'm not from US or UK, but I know what shag means. :P
    What I meant by contradicting myself was, that I actually used that "saying" in one of my posts here:

    :)

    I'll stop going off topic now.

  21. @Bob LOL I can't believe I didn't remember it from there. Must have something to do with the other stuff that was on that post...hmmm...God bless the internet.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ok, i stopped being a lazy ass for a minute and searched the song on youtube.
    I must say it was ...hmmm lets put it this way...softer than i expected hahahaha I get Bob's point now, they seem a little gay, Not that there's anything wrong with that hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Hasidic Plumber Well the lead singer is pretty gay :) When I was younger, even before I learnt that, I thought they were a gay couple lol. I think the other guy is gay too, but they are not a couple.
