'Come on! I've known this one for TWO days!' 

I’m laughing

El viento hará sonar
La campana de la libertad
Ya no hay tiempo que perder
Hay que girar hacia la paz
Canta con tu balalaika ya
Lo que mi guitarra quiere gritar

a la magia del momento
De la gloria
Donde los niños
del mañana soñarán
Los cambios que vendrán
Llevame a la magia del momento
De la gloria
Donde los sueños de los niños
A la humanidad

Scorpions - Vientos De Cambio (Winds of Change, Spanish)

I have a face I cannot show 
I make the rules up as I go 
It’s try and love me if you can 
Are you strong enough to be my man? 

When I’ve shown you that I just don’t care 
When I’m throwing punches in the air 
When I’m broken down and I can’t stand 
Will you be man enough to be my man? 

Lie to me 
I promise I’ll believe 
Lie to me 
But please don’t leave

I’ve seen some background noise pages around tumblr like rainymood, but I don’t think I’ve really seen this page recommended on tumblr.

The plus of this page is without a doubt the huge list of sound machines that you can open in several tabs and mix as you like, ranging from natural sounds like rain and waves to industrial noises to relaxing tunes like in utero. It’s suitable as background noise for work as well as for relaxing and sleep.

You took me in and you drove me out
Yeah, you had me hypnotized, yeah
Lost and found an turned around

Everyday we’ve been apart
I don’t care about the sunshine, yeah
'Cause mama, mama, I'm comin home
I’m comin home

Track 9: “The Suffering”

If you haven’t figured it out by now, Good Apollo I spends considerably more time on the story of the Writer than it does on the story of Heaven’s Fence. The problem with that is, as of now, with no full comic treatment of the album, the story becomes incredibly repetitive. There just isn’t enough going on, plot-wise, in the graphic novel to cover fifteen songs worth of story discussion.

This is the third song in a row that has nothing to do with the story of Claudio Kilgannon and his destiny as the Crowing, and is entirely about the delusions and thoughts of the Writer. Musically, however, this isn’t a bad thing at all. “Wake Up” and “The Suffering” are two of my favorite songs from the album, whether they contribute anything of value to the story or not. It’s clear that Claudio Sanchez was in a different place while writing this album, having gone through a break up (with his now-wife, Chondra) that led to a lot of break-up-related songs… of which “The Suffering” is one.

The person suffering is the Writer, who is still thinking that he could win back Erica Court, and while “Wake Up” was a love song telling her just how great a relationship between them could be, “The Suffering” is more of a desperate plea. The middle of this album is pretty much entirely devoted to the Writer’s thoughts and craziness, with the main story not really kicking back in until the Willing Well suite.

"Is there a word or right to say
Even in this old fashioned way?
Go make your move, girl
I’m not coming home

Would things have changed if I could’ve stayed?
Would you have loved me either way?
Dressed to the blues, day to day with my collar up”

As the Writer decided in “Wake Up,” he’s leaving. He lost Erica and he feels that he needs to do something about ending the story, so he’s leaving and he doesn’t know if he’s coming back. Before he goes, though, he spends a little more time contemplating what could’ve been with Erica, asking if there was a chance she could have loved him if things were different.

"Decision sits so make it quick
A breath inhaled from an air so sick
I cursed the day that I learned
Of the web you spun…
(You had your hold ‘til bleeding)”

The Writer wants to hear her answer, but he’s in a rush to leave now that he’s made up his mind. He still loves her, although he hates what he knows about her infidelity.

"(Hey, hey!)
If it was up to me
I would’ve figured you out
Way before the year clocked out
Oh, I hope you’re waiting
(Hey, hey!)
If it was up to me
I would’ve never walked out
So until the sun burns out
Oh, I hope you’re waiting”

I believe that this is the Writer saying that he would’ve figured out what was really going on with Erica sooner, if things had been under his control. If it had been his decision to make, he wouldn’t have left her the way that she left him.

"Would we have lived as a child would care?
With this vile to drink I dare
(Oh, where have you been? Oh, where have you been?)
Only to cry all alone with your taste on tongue
(Oh where have you been if it hurts to be forgiving?)”

This part is referring to the story, in which Coheed poisons his children. In a previous song, “Once Upon Your Dead Body,” the Writer suffers a delusion in which he poisons Erica the same way. I’m pretty sure that he’s wondering if that would have been a better option, rather than leaving, because of how badly she hurt him.

Should we try this again with hope?
(Bye bye…)
Or is it lost, give up the ghost
And should I die all alone as I knew I would…
(Then burn in hell young sinner)”

Again, he’s asking if there’s a chance for their relationship, wondering if there’s any hope left or if it’s completely dead.

"Now listen well, will you marry me?
(Not now, boy)
Are you well in your suffering?
(You’ve been…) the most gracious of hosts
You may be invited girl, but you’re not coming in
Listen well, will you marry me?
(Not now, boy)
Are you well in your suffering?
(You’ve been…) the most gracious of hosts
I may be invited girl, but I’m not coming in

And you’re not coming in…”

I think that the final part of the song is the Writer making one last, desperate plea to Erica, asking for her hand in marriage, as if that’s the thing that will get her to come back. “Not now, boy” is her answering him. The rest seems metaphorical, with the parts about her being invited, but not coming in referring to the fact that she’s wanted by him, but doesn’t have any interest in returning.

I’ve always really loved the way that “The Suffering” kicks off after the quiet of “Wake Up.” It’s like a kick to the face that brings the album back to a poppier, upbeat sound, despite the lyrical content. It’s an incredibly fun song, with sing-along verses and “hey heys” throughout, making it a great song for back-and-forth vocals. This may be the poppiest song Coheed had put out at this point, with only “Blood Red Summer” and “A Favor House Atlantic” gunning for the same spot.

In addition to being fun to sing along to, it’s got a great sound, musically. The drums and guitar are fantastic and contribute to the poppiness of the whole thing, and you can just tell that the band had a lot of fun writing this one. One of my favorite memories involving this song was during the week of Neverender in NYC, where a friend of mine and I found ourselves in a convenience store in the city. My buddy was singing this song out loud, and was at the “listen well, will you marry me?” part, when a girl we didn’t know at all walked by and sang “not now, boy” and we all just had a moment of mutual Coheed awesomeness. I love, love, love my fellow Children of the Fence, and I love meeting people at Coheed shows, never mind randomly in a convenience store.

So, does “The Suffering” add anything new to the story? Nope. Does that mean “The Suffering” is a bad song? Hell no. I love this track and always have, and the fact that it’s simply retreading story elements doesn’t bother me in the slightest. When Claudio eventually releases the comic book version of Good Apollo, I’m sure I’ll be able to look back on writing this and have things to add, but right now, I have to work with what I’ve got.
