DRAFT: when he knew for certain only drowning men could see him, he said 'all men will be sailors then, until the sea shall free them.'

Thought it was too depressive, and inconclusive a thought

i seem to just want to keep updating song lyrics tonight. i've already quoted one leonard cohen on my facebook update, but now, here we go again:

i just realized all of these lyrics i'm wanting to quote have something about "broken" in them. (but he himself was broken, long before the sky would open, forsaken, almost human, he sank beneath your wisdom like a stone).

as a stress-reliever, i often transcribe lyrics into the field of the itunes files. but i don't seem to be able to search the lyrics of the files--i can't type in "broken" and get all the songs that i'm apparently going to get stuck in my head tonight.
