Unkle. Rabbit in your headlights.

This song and video to me is a metaphor for those who walk a different road. Those who are so different that they get run down for not following the flow.
It shows apathy in its worst aspect. No one would run down some one and not stop. But they run down ppl other ways, every day in a rush to fulfill thier own non important needs and dont bother to stop. They go with the world's flow, and to them, anyone else is nothing except roadkill.
Yet, I, and many like me, are different. We walk other paths. And I'm not weak. I'm not a mumbling idiot like this guy, but I represent those who walk those other path.
And no matter how many times I've been pushed aside. No matter how many times ive been run down by society's apathy and indifference, I too still get up.
And you and I both know that in the end we cannot beat a car. You cannot stop the way society is as one person.
But I still walk that path. In the hope that I will help make it easier. In the hope that with more like me, walking the hard and different path, we will wear a track for others to take courage and follow.
Then one day, we will change the flow, and find a way that works for us all. That stops the mindless movement of metal and plastic, powered by small minds and herd instincts, rushing through lives, to go nowhere fast as possible.
But the thing I relate to the most is the very end of this clip. You cant imagine just how much ive seen that image in my mind and felt that feeling, before I ever saw this clip.
There are times when I feel that power within me. That feeling of being impossibly unstoppable. When I cannot be pushed aside, when everything must obey my will, when anyone I come across, no matter how much power they wield: must yield.
I have felt that feeling numerous times. That inner power. That inner deity lurking just beneath the surface. That animalistic, killer instinct.
I feel this most when I have been working out. When my blood flows hot. When my adrenaline is washing over me. When my endorphins are lifting me up where I cannot feel pain at all. Where the energy I am, my life-force, is so heightened, so empowered... That. I. Can. Not. Be. Stopped.
Man I love that feeling.
