A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
The gift of music is one that I hold dear to my heart, and never take it for granted. To be able to transport my mind for those 4 minutes, in order to place myself within the landscape of the narratives, serves as a mini break from life. Since embarking on this journey to place the visual with the audio, and create a collection of works that prove that Third Eye Blind is the Soundtrack of Our Life, I have found myself going through photos from years back.
I came across this one, which was taken from a short film test in 2010, I took the challenge to see just how powerful and image can be to the experts and just how quick lyrics would start hitting this post.
Name all the lyrics that can we used with this photo.
1. Like a candle I snuff ...why can't you be ..
2. I burn candles and stare at a ghost
3. I tried your gypsy table ramblings and your seance stunt
4. I want to be your cystal baller..
5. And a candle burns to fight off the gloom,
I said to live in this way is not for the meek,
6. I’ve never been so alone, and I’ve never been so alive
7. I’ve got a will to burn
8. I keep burnin on and on and on
9. Holds a truth I can't erase, all alone on your face
10. Baby I thought you’d call, or leave a light on in the hall
11. "I'm always a ghost
I tried your gypsy tarot readings, some seance stunt
I keep an open mind but I think it’s just a front
Want to believe it though" -Shipboard Cook
I think it's fitting because you have the candles of the saints like you would buy at a bodega or from a magic/hoodoo store. There are like what you see used in Santeria and used alot in calling protection and contacting ancestors and deceased loved ones.
I have a white Pilar candle in glass that is my spot for my brother with some pictures on my special shelf in my office bear my art desk. I place my "magical items" (merkaba crystal necklace, prayer beads, and goofer dust on the photo and candle to recharge and dispell negative energies.
Love this photo Liseli. Very person and intimate for those who know your life story. Also I like this for the transition of Christian's character in the narrative as his role will take on many forms or avatars in the story arcs.
