From Blogizdat LJ:
Throughout the ages there have been ecstatic movements that have embraced one form of glossolalia or other, the private or collective experience of speaking in tongues, utterances that are not of one's own, usually attributed to and employed in the worship of some deity.
And even though I've never participated in such, ever since I was a young lad I found that song lyrics sometimes expressed my thoughts and feelings better than I ever could, that I could close my eyes and use the words of others to take me to a different state, frothing with images and memories, capturing the essence of my deepest fears, wistful hopes and aching longings.
Anyway, I'm putting down a few lyrics that have been running in my head the past week or three, some that make me think, some that make me shudder, some that make me smile, some that make me tear up - and some that just make me want to sing along - My Own Pretty Glossolalia Machine, 3.0.
