There are so many of Shannons words that cut through me like a knife but one that hits home for me is... this life has taken a toll on my soul and then the song Wooh God/Dog, I just love that song , that's all him, the way he sings with so much meaning and , the song might be short but the way he sings it, I could feel it for miles
"'Cuz we're all young and we're just tryin' to make the best of a bad situation.And we're not gonna be young forever so we gotta enjoy it while we are right?" ...or something like that
I absolutely love it when Shannon says that Damn he was a wise man...
You know if there's one thing that I identify with Shannon the most is his views on religion.. Or at least what I think his views on religion were considering he talked a lot about God and even had that wonderful poem tattooed on his arm... As far as I understand, he just wasnt into organized religion that much just like me... So here are some of my favorite quotes as far as religion:
"Religiously they seem to sin Buy, sell, or trade for amens... I just dont wanna feel, I dont wanna feel, I just dont wanna feel like they feel.." Soo true
"Holyman I'll tell you just what it is that I believe Holyman I tell you man you gotta believe in what you see Cause its you who corrupt us man and deep throat philosophy I dont need your spells or the little games ya try to pull on me come to think of it I dont need your religion Gotta get away I wish you would understand everybody prays LET ME FIND MY OWN WAY"
"If my thoughts are good or evil Set me think to hide them not there is one above all seeing And He beholdth every thought" (I know Shannon didnt write this one, but still it's a beautiful poem!)
a little part from 'i wonder' always hits me the hardest...
Now in my corner I got the ceiling in my eyes Arms holding up my knees and rockin back and forth's my life I didn't mean to feel this way when I walked into the door, Lord Then they ripped away my memories and I can't remember who i was before.
to me anyway, i always think of addiction and how after i came out of the haze i tried to go back to the way i was but realized i couldn't even remember anything about myself anymore. like you get broken down into tiny little pieces like a vase and you're picking them up and gluing them back together, but there are always gonna be holes and cracks now, and there will be pieces missing and there'll be pieces you thought were there so you glued them in, and only later you realize they were never part of it in the first place....
somebody also posted that quote from 'walk', the very last part of it, i love that one too.
also from st. andrew's fall:
And i can't tell you how many ways That I've sat and viewed my life today But I can tell you I don't think That I could find an easier way So if I see you walking hand in hand in hand With a 3-armed man You know I'll understand But you should have been in my shoes yesterday.
i find people are so quick to label and judge. but you never know the things that push people to do what they do, good or bad. and i think people struggle with themselves more than we give them credit for. we all fuck up. and then we all wake up in the morning and gotta try one more time...
ReMelon when you were young, you shone like the sun
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky...
:bee: "find myself singing the same songs everyday ones that make me feel good when things behind the smile ain't ok.... around and over and in between the seas I need to be on top of the mountain.. where I can see everything, cause this paranoia is getting old....its getting so oldddd......." :bee:
...I just want someone to say to me.... I'll always be there when you wake....
"life isn't a tiptoe through the tulips"
...fridays are always fresh days...

jennywest: It's beento long since anyone has written as beautifully as Shannon. I wish and try to find stars among galaxy's that I could write even kind of like him. It's only been lately since addiction has completely taken over, have I even looked at a pen.

gratefulandmelon: i can't believe it has took me this long to think of coming to this site, it's long over dew, maybe because the thought of shannon not being with us anymore still bugs me, & loosing my best friend a couple days ago made me think of him.

gratefulandmelon: me & shannon used to hang around some of the same people & places when i lived in lafayette all them years ago, so when he got blind melon going i was hooked, but when he left us behind i took it pretty hard & it still bugs me.

emilahp: Hi it has taken me awhile to visit here, I'm a huge fan of the band and Shannon, I was greatly affected by his death, it shook me to my core. I still think of him, the band and the super incredible music. Shannon at Woodstock was such an incredible frontma
