Trash/Thrash Tuesday: Black Sabbath – Solitude

Greetings fellow humans.  How about that sports team?  Since I assume you have all been too high or hung over to notice, I took a short absence from writing these Trash/Thrash jams, if only because I have started school and already things have been ridiculously busy for me on the schoolyard front.


Also, they have recently decided it was appropriate to allow me to give injections, so look out, kids, because I’m super pumped on being able to stab needles into things legally.  I’ve been feeling really strange lately, I don’t know if its a change in the weather or something, but I’ve been feeling extra hermitty and lonely and alienated from the rest of humanity.  I’ve basically been sitting around being a sad piece of shit, and I haven’t really been listening to a lot of metal lately, but this is one song that’s been on the repeat list of late, and I guess Black Sabbath seems appropriate for this time of year.

What can I say about Sabbath that hasn’t been said a million times before?  This is one of the things I have in common with my Dad, who is a wonderful man who looked at one point a lot like a young Ozzy Osbourne.

Perhaps it’s best to let this song speak for itself, and let all your lonely pieces of shit out there know that I feel you.  I get it.  I’m here for you boo.  The oldblackgoat knows your struggles.

My name it means nothing
my fortune is less
My future is shrouded in dark wilderness
Sunshine is far away, clouds linger on
Everything I posessed – Now they are gone

Oh where can I go to and what can I do?
Nothing can please me only thoughts are of you
You just laughed when I begged you to stay
I’ve not stopped crying since you went away

The world is a lonely place – you’re on your own
Guess I will go home – sit down and moan.
Crying and thinking is all that I do
Memories I have remind me of you
