Jump into the fog

I haven’t posted music or book for a while, but this one deserves a special spot in my blog.
While “It’s a good life” by One Republic was on constant play on my ipod last year, a song on the radio this afternoon at work caught my attention.
The chorus was played with a beat I’ve never heard before, with a lyric that caught my attention, “…jump into the fog…”. I had no idea what the song meant, the words was rather hard to get. But just the idea of “jumping into the fog” is intriguing for me. It’s really what I am at this point in my life: the point where I jump into the fog. Not seeing what is there, not knowing what’s ahead, and jumping anyway.
I found the lyrics of The Wombats’ new single, Jump into the fog, and these lines just remind me of what is true,
What a great achievement it was
To find someone who shirks such little self-restraint
I’m a non-believer but
I believe in these dirty little wicked games
Snakes and ladders abandoned here love
The climb’s too rough to slide back down again
I’m only here because
I feel the day deserves a truly sordid end
I secretly smiled listening to that part.
I guess my achievement was to actually find someone evil with absolutely no self-restraint and being so addicted to power. It’s unimaginable how cruel and selfish that person’s actions are. And while I was an incurable optimist (I truly hope I still am), now I believe that there are dirty wicked games being played, because I got trapped in them. And in these dirty games, it’s inevitable that there will be a truly bad ending for that person. My climb was too hard to just slide back down again. But yet, I’m still here. I’m still here because I feel that at the end of the day everyone will get what they deserve.
