Various Stages…of Madness

I heard a great song today and wanted to share it with you. It is by a band called, “Great Lake Swimmers” and the song is called, “Various Stages”.

I think it could mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people…maybe you are one of them. I have highlighted my favorite lines of lyrics below…

I have seen you in various stages of undress.
I have seen you through various states of madness.
I have seen your refractions and I did not recognize you.
I have seen you in various states of madness.

How high your highest of heights? How low are your lows?
How high your highest of heights? How low are your lows?

I am sorry I had nothing left for you.
My mind was willing and my spirit was strong.
My lips were tired and tightened from singing along.
My eyelids are heavy as anchors thrown over.

How high your highest of heights? How low are your lows?
How high your highest of heights? How low are your lows?

I have seen you in the eyes of a hundred thousand other stranger faces.
I have seen you in unlikely and unfamiliar places.
I have seen you be reckless in matters of love.
I have seen by degrees the boiling point come and go.

How high your highest of heights? How low are your lows?
How high your highest of heights? How low are your lows?
What lies at the end of this long and dark and twisted road?
How high your highest of heights? How low are your lows?

I have seen you in various stages of undress.
I have seen you through various states of madness.

~ by, Great Lake Swimmers – Various Stages

So, how about sharing one with me?

    I haven’t listened to the song, but just the lyrics are incredible. They’re so insightful and can be applied to so many situations. Very appropriate for mental health/illness. Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you, that’s what I thought too. I caught the tail end of it and then looked it up.
