Paradise Circus

Paradise Circus by Massive Attack! A great and beloved song from the album Heligoland. It's really amazing...the music...the lyrics...the original video is for adults only. Those over 18 search it on massive attack's blog ;). I love the line:

"oh well (where?) the devil makes us sin....but we like it when we're spinning in his grip"

It's unfortunately true...and as "I Know" from Placebo says..."I know you love the sin but not the sinner" ;). This one also reminds me of a scene from the movie "The Devil's Advocate" where the devil is trying to convinve his son that the God is actually playing a joke on people giving them pleasures but not letting them have them. Well if you ask me...I think the answer to that is what if we succumbed to all our instincts? Then we would diminish ourselvels to beasts...

After all..."we are our own devils". Enjoy!


  1. Oh wow, I love that song "I Know" by Placebo! I think I'm going to feature it on my blog tomorrow.

    This is an incredible song. I don't think I've heard it before which means I haven't listened to the album although I have it. Weird.

    That is it, isn't it. We maintain our humanity by living in moderation.

    I've added you on to my blogroll!

  2. Hey Emm! Thanks for adding me to your blogroll :)! I love "I Know" too. I'm gonna post it in the following days here also ;). That is a long topic to discuss but you said it in a sentence :). I would love to see you around here!
