Brave this night, have faith in love

“So you think I’m alone?
But being alone’s the only way to be
When you step outside
You spend life fighting for your sanity

This is a cold war
You better know what you’re fighting for
This is a cold war
Do you know what you’re fighting for?

If you wanna be free?
Below the ground’s the only place to be
Cause in this life
You spend time running from depravity

This is a cold war
Do you know what you’re fighting for?
This is a cold war
You better know what you’re fighting for

Bring wings to the weak and bring grace to the strong
May all evil stumble as it flies in the world
All the tribes come and the mighty will crumble
We must brave this night and have faith in love

 

I’m trying to find my peace
I was made to believe there’s something wrong with me
And it hurts my heart
Lord have mercy, ain’t it plain to see?

That this is a cold war
Do you know what you’re fighting for?
This is a cold war
You better know what you’re fighting for”

– Janelle Monae

I am completely in platonic-love with this woman at the moment. First popular artist I have ever really connected to – working class girl, loves Frida Kahlo, Tim Burton, is concerned with BALANCE & transcendence, rocks the suits and her live performances are killer. Funky little thing. Finally found another alien!

Just thought I’d share. New post soon. Exciting times.
