Walking on the Burining Coal by Gogal Bordello

I was walking on one cloudy morning
With uncertain shadow on my soul
Underneath the shadow there was yearning
To be done walking on the burning coal

I'm walking
Burning
Walking
I walking on the burning coal
I'm walking
Ain't it easier to fall

Leave behind scenarios made for you
And stay on a path to your own pole
Ain't no ordinary stroll
Gets the sailor knot in my chest undone

And the shadow
Feels the soul
Turned to ashes
Turned aerial
And you don't need no one to walk you through it
Through this would be world burial

I'm walking
Burning
Walking
I walking on the burning coal
Coal
Coal
Ain't it easier to

DUDE, DONT WALK ON BURNING COAL AND, GUESS WHAT? IT WONT HURT.

I have heard stories about people who can walk barefoot over burning coals. When I was in college I met a dude who claimed he could put his hand over a flame and his skin would not burn. So I asked him to show me and his response was "I don't do party tricks". I remember thinking. Wow this dude is full of shit. I don't know if people can can walk over burning coals. I'm guessing that it's all bullshit. Skin burns. That is a fact. And yet what the hell do I know?

I've heard they have a parents version of walking on coals, but they're replaced with Legos

I remember when Chris put his hand on a burner I had just used to pop popcorn on Osprey Ct.

In his defense, it was a black stovetop that didn't light up when you used it....but still

Gogol Bordello is an interesting band

I do enjoy their song 'Start Wearing Purple'

'AIn't no ordinary stroll gets the sailor knot in my chest undone'

Cool line

Yes! I remember that. It hurt like a mother-flower. There is nothing more painful than a burn. That's what I don't understand. People who set them selves on fire to make some kind of political point. Why? Why would you chose the most painful way you could go? Why not just take a bunch of pills and fall asleep at the protest site? I guess that would be a little less dramatic, but still. I guess you could hang yourself somehow but that gets complicated trying to smuggle a fire arm into a protest site. Hanging is pretty dramatic. At any rate self immolation is not the way I will ever make a statement.

I have many many times walked on the Lego coals. July has them scattered everywhere.

Oh and about the dude who said he could put his hand over a flame and not get burned but then said I don't do party tricks. Well why the hell did he say it? Trying to impress? Did you tell him to put up or shut up?
