So I Joined Facebook.

Well,... it happened. In some ways I still don't know why. I joined Facebook. There; It has been said and done. I do have a few good reasons I'd like to remind myself of.. At work I've been asked to make a 'mini Facebook' for a local college so that the old-girls can keep in contact. Now the only way I'm gonna learn what these young ladies will expect out of their website, Is to dive head in here and explore Facebook for myself.

Secondly,.. I'd be silly to deny the huge growth that Facebook is experiencing. Growth = $$$. I'm keen to see where I can lay my programming hands in ways to either make money or self advertise.

Of course,.. to all my friendlies: I joined Facebook because I love networking soooo much. If you know me well you know how much I talk. Really though,.. I'm sure I'll enjoy at least some measure of social networking here.

Brave Saint Saturn - Heart Still Beats

The girl in the alley kneels with exhaustion
She's guarded by the skinny guy who limps from some infection
Behind a veil of bleached thin hair her eyes tell a story
Like a photo of Berlin, December 1944
She's looking for a handout, she's been high for several weeks now
She's too far gone for whoring and the money just gave out

And her heart still beats inside
And the blood runs in her veins
A remnant of life remains
Her heart still beats inside

The man finally comes to the door, I've seen him several times
He always looks pissed off and his sunglasses stay on
I think he got his biceps and tattoos while in prison
And it doesnt seem to bother him when he says "go to hell"

And his heart still beats inside
The blood runs in his veins
A remnant of life remains
His heart still beats inside

The thought it comes to my mind, to somehow intervene
But it could bring me trouble, and what can I do anyway?
It's hard to be effective when it happens so often
To see a life unraveling, through drawn venetian blinds
I'm sickened by compassion, I'm stifled by my limitations
Anesthetic apathy, come take the pain away

And my heart still beats inside
The blood runs in my veins
A remnant of life remains
And my heart still beats inside

Oh God, we need you here
We're sinking fast and we dont care
The evidence is all around me, on both sides of my door
Our hearts beat
