  Save Me From the Nothing I've Become

I really try not to become an old fart. I'm not piercing my tongue, or getting a tattoo or anything like that.  No, I know my place in the universe.  I will never be as incredibly hip as I believed myself to be at 17.  But I'm trying not to get stuck in one period of time. I  realize my music collection is heavily stuck in the 80's, especially in the new wave artists like the Police and the Talking Heads.  But I have made a real effort to listen to new music.  I really like Moby, and 3 Doors Down, Seal, Bare Naked Ladies and The Presidents of The United States of America when they were still together, and other various stuff.  I like rap, techno and trance (much to my wife's annoyance).

I was watching MTV several days ago and actually saw a music video (they aren't as common as they used to be).  I saw "Bring Me to Life", by Evanescence and was entranced.  I recently bought the album and really like it.  The best way I could describe the sound is the the haunting vocals of Enya plus straight ahead hot guitar.  Amy Lee has a set of pipes on her that will not quit.

If you think that there is anything lacking in the music, the lyrics really make up for it.  I did not know the spiritual connection until I read the liner notes.  Some of their songs are as inspired as something you may have read in the Psalms.

"Bring Me To Life
How can you see into my life like open doors,
leading you down into my core,
Where I've become so numb without a soul,
Until you find it there and lead it back home.

Wake me up inside,
Wake me up inside,
Call my name and save me from the dark,
Bid my blood to run before I come undone,
Save me from the nothing I've become.

Now that I know what I'm without,
You can't just leave me,
Breathe into me and make real,
Bring me to life.

I found myself starting to weep as I listened to this song on the expressway.  I've never done that to a hard rock song before....
