This is probably why i had always prefered the Irish Football team than England’s.
Most of my favourite alltime E.P.L defenders surprisingly seem to come from Ireland (Gary Kelly, Gary Breen, Ian Harte, Matt holland).

And of cos, Sinead O connor.
First heard abt her in 1995 when i was 13, and i thot she was another alanis morissete gone botak.
Back then i thot her music sucks.
As i grew up, i kept hearing a lot of good positive things abt her. Mostly from the Alternative music circle. But i continued not checking out any of her albums.

Forward to 2005, i soon learned from the punk circle of friends who she really was.
And now, i have collected close to three of her albums.
And i seriuosly thought i was more punk than her.
Haunting voice. A message behind her lyrics. An advocate for peace.
Much so like a female version of MJ

OK, I want to talk about Ireland
Specifically I want to talk about the “famine”
About the fact that there never really was one
There was no “famine”

See Irish people were only ALLOWED to eat potatoes
All of the other food
Meat fish vegetables
Were shipped out of the country under armed guard
To England while the Irish people starved
And then on the middle of all this
They gave us money not to teach our children Irish
And so we lost our history
And this is what I think is still hurting me
See we’re like a child that’s been battered
Has to drive itself out of it’s head because it’s fightened
Still feels all the painful feelings
But they lose contact with the memory

And this leads to massive self-destruction
Alcoholism drug action
All desperate attempts at running
And in it’s worst form
Becomes actual killing
And if there ever is gonna be healing
There has to be remembering
And then grieving
So that there then can be forgiving
There has to be knowledge and understanding
An American army regulation
Says you mustn’t kill more than 10% of a nation
‘Cos to do so causes permanent “psychological damage”
It’s not permanent but they didn’t know that
Anyway during the supposed “famine”
We lost a lot more than 10% of a nation
Through deaths on land or on ships of emigration
But what finally broke us was not starvation
But it’s use in the controlling of our education
School go on about “Black 47”
On and on about “The terrible “famine””
But what they don’t say is in truth
There really never was one
So let’s take a look shall we
The highest statistics of child abuse in the EEC
And we say we’re a Christian country
But we’ve lost contact with our history
See we used to worship God as a mother
We’re sufferin from post traumatic stress disorder

Look at all our old men in the pubs
Look at all our young people on drugs
We used to worship God as a mother
Now look at what we’re doing to each other
We’ve even made killers of ourselves
The most child-like trusting people in the Universe
And this is what’s wrong with us
Our history books the parent figure lied to us

I see the Irish
As a race like a child
That got itself basned in the face
And if there ever is gonna be healing
There has to be remembering
And then grieving
So that there then can be forgiving
There has to be knowledge and und
erstanding

Its 9th september 2009 today. A special day with special numbers.
Every year there will be  a day to talk about…
Superstition,Prophecies, numerology, or probably just another day where everybody wake up and go TO work.

Since 2006, date 6/06/06, i had hoped that that metors crashed on america like in those movies or aliens came to earth n tried to kidnap KUMAR.
But on a serious note, seriously, i think human race would treasure one another if disasters or at least sumthing weird or unexplained happen on ‘special days’…. Stop and just think about it.
me n my wicked fantasy.

 

6/06/2006 – (666) – did nothing all day
7/07/2007 –  shit happened
8/08/2008 – NOTHING HAPPENED
9/09/2009 – Will something happen ?

_

And so i cant sleep, looked out of the window, with lisa loeb on the radio. (nice ryhme)
I’ll bet it’ll be just another day tomorrow morning.
But hey at least its a day with a special number.
Which will carry on and on and on till 12-12-12: 12th December 2012. ///
Treasure it while it last.
