ONLY THE NAMES CHANGE

This is the name of the Song I’ve had in my life for what seems ages now.. The initial thoughts that created this song came about me seeing a drunk woman acting like a god of sorts holding a very large glass of red wine. I started to write about what this woman’s life might be like and how she might end up, it then led to me writing about 3 people who are all on self destructive paths. It’s about the same situations within people that occur everyday, but Only The Names Change….

  6. whatever are my names, I am myself

    Interesting… I have been myself “The Name” several times. And Only The names changed. I was born with the need of going through destructive paths because I can only see the light through darkness (a kind of natural spiritual process to me, anyway). To keep safe and sane through those destructive paths, I’ve decided to consciously and carefully “schizophrenised” myself. I’ve created several “myself” with different names. Always in an artistic way to make it look magic. About ten of “me” live or lived (some are dead, I didn’t need them anymore, they drove me to enlightenment safely, here are their purpose), I name them and give them artistic skills. They are painter, drawer or photograph and most of them are writers and write down their existential questioning and frightening words. People who are on self destructive path always look the same from an outside point of view, even if, from my inside point of view, we can clearly differentiate those who choose to suffer the consequences of destruction and those who choose to use it as an enlightenment tool. And indeed, only the name change…
