"song of the day, 2014.10.07"
 
   So I understand that Book 4 has started. This is basically all I have to say about that.


Running out of self-control
Getting close to an overload
Up against a no-win situation
Shoulder to shoulder, push and shove
I'm hanging up my boxing gloves
I'm ready for a long vacation
Yeah

Be good to yourself when
Nobody else will
Whoa be good to yourself
You're walking a high wire
Caught in a crossfire
Whoa be good to yourself

When you can't give no more
They want it all but you've got to say "No"
I'm turning off the noise that makes me crazy
Looking back with no regret
To forgive is to forget
I want a little peace of mind to turn to

Be good to yourself when
Nobody else will
Whoa be good to yourself
Yeah
You're walking a high wire
Caught in a crossfire
Whoa be good to yourself

Be good
Good to yourself when
Nobody else will

Yeah!

"Be Good To Yourself"

   One of a fairly large number of things that Chief Gryphon and Avatar Korra have in common: in their position, there are days - probably quite a number of days - when this is really the only song that will do, turned up as far as it will go in the privacy of your office.


Hey brother Christian with your high and mighty errand
Your actions speak so loud I can't hear a word you're sayin'
Hey sister bleeding heart with all of your compassion
Your labors soothe the hurt but can't assuage temptation

Hey man of science with your perfect rules of pleasure
Can you improve this place with the data that you gather?
Hey Mother Mercy can your loins bear fruit forever?
Is your fecundity a trammel or a treasure?

And I want to conquer the world
Give all the idiots a brand new religion
Put an end to poverty, uncleanliness, and toil
Promote equality with all of my decisions
With a quick wink of the eye
And a "God, you must be joking"

Hey Mr. Diplomat with your worldly aspirations
Did you see your children cry when you left them at the station?
Hey moral soldier you've got righteous proclamations
And precious tomes to fuel your pulpy conflagrations

And I want to conquer the world
Give all the idiots a brand new religion
Put an end to poverty, uncleanliness, and toil
Promote equality in all of my decisions
I want to conquer the world
Expose the culprits and feed 'em to the children
Do away with air pollution and then I'll save the whales
We'll have peace on Earth and global communion
I want to conquer the world
I want to conquer the world
I want to conquer the world
I want to conquer the world

   ... but on a lot of days (especially if you're still behind the lines of the canon), it plays out more like this.


Culture was the seed of proliferation but it's gotten melded
Into an inharmonic whole (to an inharmonic whole)
Consciousness has plagued us and we cannot shake it
Though we think we're in control (though we think we're in control)
Questions and procedures in life are testament of our helplessness
There's no vestige of beginning, no prospect of an end
When we all disintegrate it will all happen again, yeah

Time is so rock-solid in the minds of the hordes but they can't
Explain why it should slip away ('splain why it should slip away)
History and future are the comforts of our curiosity but here we are
Rooted in the present day (rooted in the present day)
Questions and procedures in life are testament of our helplessness
There's no vestige of beginning, no prospect of an end
When we all disintegrate it will all happen again, yeah
If you came to conquer you'll be king for a day
But you too will deteriorate and quickly fade away
And believe these words you hear when you think your path is clear:

We have no control
We have no control
We have no control
We do no understand
You have no control
You are not in command
You have no control
We have no control
No control, no control
You have no control
