Living on the edge - Aerosmith

I bet you were wondering what I was going to write about when you saw the title of this blog? Over the course of the last few years I must have listened to this song a million times (slight exageration but you know what I mean); the other day I was driving to a meeting in Manchester (UK) and suddenly the words jumped out to me.

My wife who is a massive Aerosmith fan told me that Steven Tyler was very spiritual and I guess that watching the last Pop Idol (America) you can see it to a certain degree.

This song really sums up the world today in a few parts of the lyrics i.e. :

"There's somethin' wrong with the world today I don't know what it is Something's wrong with our eyes
We're seeing things in a different way And God knows it ain't His It sure ain't no surprise
We're livin' on the edge We're livin' on the edge We're livin' on the edge We're livin' on the edge
There's somethin' wrong with the world today The light bulb's gettin' dim There's meltdown in the sky
If you can judge a wise man By the color of his skin Then mister you're a better man that I
We're livin' on the edge You can't help yourself from fallin' Livin' on the edge You can't help yourself at all Livin' on the edge You can't stop yourself from fallin' Livin' on the edge
Tell me what you think about your sit-u-a-tion Complication - aggravation Is getting to you"

Now this may not hit you between the eyes as it did with me; however, I would ask you to listen to this song and see if you received what I did. I would be very interested in your thoughts and what messages you received.

All the very best,
