Up, up and away!

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
I'm just out to find
The better part of me

I'm more than a bird, I'm more than a plane
I'm more than some pretty face beside a train
And it's not easy
To be me

I wish I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home I'll never see

It may sound absurd but don't be naive
Even heros have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed but won't you concede
That even heros have the right to dream
And it's not easy
To be me

Up, up and away...away from me
Well, it's alright
You can all sleep sound tonight
I'm not crazy or anything

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naive
Men weren't men to ride
With clouds between their knees

I'm only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one-way street

Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me

Inside of me
Inside of me
Inside of me

It's not easy
To be me

Dave Matthews, It's Not Easy To Be Me Posted by Picasa

My new fave image. Love DMB. This is a great song.

Trée said...

Oliviah, this is a very powerful image. The motion and energy shakes the cobwebs of my soul. And the song adds a whole new and interesting element. The two together are just superb. :-)

Very good for me to see and read. Inside me, but I can't tell you how.

I like how these colors play off each other. Very nice.

stargazer said...

Really cool image. It's in motion, and wonderfully vibrant.

Oliviah said...

Dave Matthews is great, huh jj? :) I am glad you like the image too~

trée, it looks like souls soaring to me. Neat the way it affected you. :)

daddy, I am glad you saw this one. More glad that you liked it. :)

jane, this is two fractals layered one on top of the other. I think I used Fractal Explorer to make this one. A lot of these Fractal Explorer ones were made a few years ago when I first started making fractals. I do tone down the colors from what they originally were though. :0

stargazer, always good to see you. The song is a bit wistful & sad so I am glad you saw the vibrancy in the image.
