Were The Navy Days Really THAT Long Ago?!?

Yep.

They Sure Were.

Sheesh.

“I Would Swallow My Pride… I Would Choke On The Rinds… But The Lack Thereof Would Leave Me Empty Inside. I Would Swallow My Doubt… Turn It INSIDE OUT… Find Nothing But Faith In Nothing…” — EVE 6 (“Inside Out” (May 1998)

“…Want To Put My Tender Heart In A Blender…
…Watch It Spin ’round To A Beautiful Oblivion…
…Rendezvous, Then I’m Through With You.”

… … …

I Awoke Today…

…Thinking SPECIFICALLY About This Song.

It Was The Last Song I’d Heard Last Night…

…But…

…It’s Much MUCH More Special Than Just THAT.

I’ve Made The Comment To Friends AND Family…

…Since 1998…

…About How THIS Individual Song…

“INSIDE OUT”

By

EVE 6

…Saved My Life In 1998.

And…

…Just To Be Clear…

…I DO Promise Y’all…

…It Honestly DID.

“INSIDE OUT”

…Was Released…

…THE SAME WEEK…

…I Went To BOOTCAMP.

And…

…It Just So Happens…

“INSIDE OUT”

…Was THE LAST SONG I Heard…

…Before I Exited That Damned Bus…

…And Truly Began…

…My REAL Military Experience.

I Sincerely THOUGHT I Was Ready.

I Just Never Really Imagined It Would Be Like That.

And One Of THE WORST WORST Parts Of Bootcamp…

…Was A TOTAL LACK Of MUSIC!!!

So…

…For That FIRST MONTH Of Bootcamp…

…MY MUSIC…

…Was Solely Inside…

…MY HEAD.

You Can’t Take Letters From Family And Friends To Read At Anytime.

They’re An Extra Bonus, But They Don’t Go With You Everywhere During Your Day.

So…

…I Listened To The Music Inside Me.

I Must Have Played…

“INSIDE OUT”

…On My “Internal Playlist”…

…Many THOUSANDS Of Times.

BUT…

…It DID Keep Me As Sane As Possible.

Music Has An AMAZING Ability To Calm The Mind…

…And…

EVE 6’s “INSIDE OUT”

…Was MY Mental Savior.

And It’s A Rather Nifty Song.

Kudos Kudos, EVE 6!

AND THANK YOU!!!
