are we being forced to love?

i wanted to post these lyrics to a great song by a great band… it touches on a subject we never, ever speak about… or really think about for that matter… the song is called “Forced To Love”:

Well, if you think about it, then you’re a fool, yeah
It’s just a size and the mind that won’t give you up
And if I think about it, well, am I cool yet
‘Cause it’s the word of the knife that won’t cut you up
And if we think about it, well, is it true yet
‘Cause there’s no line that reminds whether we are enough
So let’s think about it, oh, are we through yet
It’s just the crime at the time of a masculine hug

‘Cause we’re forced to love
Yeah, we’re forced to love
All the time, forced to love

When we speak about it
Made the right, always on mine
And if I speak about it
Erase the lies, love is frozen

So if you think about it, what would you do
You’re just the man with the plan saying we are not lost
So let’s think about it, oh, are we through yet
It’s just the time to decide if we can move up
Up, up, up

‘Cause we’re forced to love
Yeah, we’re forced to love
All the time, forced to love
Yeah, we’re forced to love
Yeah, we’re forced to love

‘Cause we’re forced to love
Yeah, we’re forced to love
All the time, forced to love

Well, if you think about it, then you’re a fool, yeah
‘Cause you decide to believe in what we made up
And if I think about it, am I cool yet
‘Cause there’s no lie like that lie that made us give up

-Broken Social Scene

some people argue and believe that love is a natural emotion… i beg to differ… it is a feeling and a very strong one, for sure… but it is different for everyone… our perception and view of what love is is forced upon us at an early age… so we know nothing different… we usually all share the same “thought” of what love “is”… don’t be forced… do you… be you.

peace and noLove
