The Crow's Spooktacular Halloween Countdown: No. 6


The Movie “The Craft” was an excellent one, about some teenage girls {all of which were nice to look at of course} who got drunk on the magical powers that the Wicca Goddess Manu, had somehow blessed them with. As the movie progressed you could actually feel the teenage angst and how it totally transformed these young women to their extremes … This movie probably gets filed into one of my all time favs with the ones that will follow from here in the countdown …

I picked this song by Jewel from the movie to simply point out that she is one of those singer song writers that is a “simple pleasure” in my music collection. I may be a hardcore Metal Head by heart, but I also find that some people deserve the recognition of having a beautiful voice and the songwriting abilities of a poet. With that said, I also hope it is a cold day in hell before she ever sings our National Anthem again, as her lip syncing with her left hand on her heart was just embarrassing at the Super Bowl … I bring you a beautiful poem in song form … “Under The Water” …


Under The Water

Bees are buzzin' in their honey catacomb
All the noise seems to call my head a home
Can't escape the scratchin', my blood makes a noise
It's hard not to play when there are so many toys, so many toys
Under the water .. The total is more than the sum
Under the water .. I hear who I'll become
There's a hole inside my head where all the thoughts break out
Sometimes my flesh is filled with forgetfulness and doubt
It's easy to feel separate, no control of the reigns
Innocence ain't lost, it just needs to be maintained, it needs to be maintained
Beside me are strange fish, moody and dark
A tapestry of intention that maintains the spark
And there's a tiny light, a flicker within
Forgiveness is the needle that knows how to mend, it knows how to mend
Under the water .. The total is more than the sum
Under the water .. I hear who I'll become
I've decided to hear who we will become
Wanna lay down in the water, go back to where I'm from
Outer space is just a puzzle of stars
Music, the mechanics of the human heart
A post that stirs, a shadow that casts
An insatiable thirst drains a martini glass
There's no place sacred, no honest reflection
Our senses made senseless by a lack of direction
Monks are great with their fists uncurled
But they live in a cave, they know nothin' of the world
I wanna live brave, I wanna love without fear
But it's hard to navigate when I can't even hear
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Bees are buzzin' in their honey catacomb
All the noise seems to call my head a home
Can't escape the scratchin', my blood makes a noise
It's hard not to play when there are so many toys, there's so many toys
Under the water .. The total is more than the sum
Under the water .. I hear who I'll become
Under the water .. My flesh is filled with stars
Under the water .. I hear who we really are
Under the water .. I lay my burdens down, down, down
Under the water .. All resistance drowns
Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo doo {X4}
Come on, come down, down, down under, go
Go down on and go down under
Under the water .. I hear who I'll become
Under the water .. I lay my problems down
Under the water .. All my resistance drowned

Question … How impressively do you decorate your house for Halloween, and care to share any decorating tips with us? I personally love to see houses that go WAY over board toward being gaudy even … lol ;8o)
