All Along the Watchtower (conformed)
by Bear McCreary
This is the unreleased version of “All Along the Watchtower" that we actually heard in “Crossroads, Part 2” the season 3 finale of BSG — as opposed to the album version released on the soundtrack!
It’s got a very long (1min30sec) lead-in sans lyrics and then at about 3min10sec the lyrics fade out again for when Lee first see’s Kara and the “It’s really me” conversation takes place.
IE: pretty sure this is the version I’ve wanted since I first heard it March 25, 2007!
Insanity is relative. It depends on who has who locked in what cage.
If it’s darkness
we’re having, let it be extravagant.
But you see, there is
a graveyard in my mouth
filled with words that
have died on my lips.
Each night, eyes shut, lying prone at the very edge of sleep
I’m losing handfuls of white windflowers into that black chasm.
It’s amazing how words can do that, just shred your insides apart.
to hope for; to wish for; feel or express a strong desire or hope for something that is not easily attainable; want something that cannot or probably will not happen.
Etymology: from Old French sohaider, from Gallo-Roman Latin *subtus-haitare “promise with little commitment”, a hybrid of Latin subtus “under” + Frankish *haitan "to order, promise".
Introspection - Full Image
When I go for long walks or sit out on my porch at night for a while with nothing to distract me, it feels like my mind is able to sort through all the extraneous thoughts and mental noise I’ve accumulated and just kind of… let it go. It’s something I don’t do often enough.
