11.12.80 Providence, RI, intro to 创Independence Day创
创I grew up in this town where it seemed that....that everybody....everybody that I knew.... had somehow let their lives, seemed like they磀 let their lives pass 磂m by somewhere along the way....and I remember going, I磀 go to school every day....and for some reason I just couldn磘....either the way they were teaching things or trying to bang it into your head instead of somehow, somehow get it, get it through your heart that....it seemed like the stuff they were teaching, that they weren磘 there to help you find your place somehow but it was just stuff that was there to keep you in your place....and later on I used to think that there was all those great books and stuff by those guys that wrote, they wrote with all that passion and all that fire, that somehow, that somehow years later you磀 stand in a room with somebody and they could make that stuff seem so boring....and....it wasn磘 until I first started listening to the radio....that something started to spark, spark my mind a little bit and....and I heard stuff on the radio that, that.....that somehow said to me that, that things didn磘 have to be the way that they were, that if you tried or if you, if you had some luck, you had some guts, you could go out and make things better for yourself....but it gets harder to do that every day, it磗 harder to do that every single day....but I remember I磀 sit, I磀 sit at home and I磀 watch my Pop, my Dad and I磀 see that somehow he missed it, somehow he never heard that stuff that was on the radio and it seemed like it was killing him every day of his life and I decided that somehow that wasn磘 gonna happen to me, that I wasn磘 gonna miss it so don磘 you miss it either, you know....创
