(6:49 a.m, Friday, November 20th)
"Good morning, Mr. Ben.
It's about 6:30
Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Um, just laying here in the bed,
Half awake, half asleep,
Thinking about you.

I was
Wondering if you were looking after your
Most valuable
Your mind.

I was thinking about
John Glenn,
His space journey and all.

They said that
When you're in space you lose
Muscle mass
And the body
And I wondered if there was any
End to it.

Or whether,
If you didn't exercise in space,
How long it would be before you were just
A head, or a mind,
And have no body or arms.
You'd have them but you couldn't use them.

I was wondering if
If your body mass would drop to a certain level,
And then it would stop right there.
And keep whatever you needed to
Use your mind
Because it would still be working."

(30 seconds remaining)

"Anyway, I was just pondering that.
What do you think about, that?

I hope everything is going alright.
I may well wake up here in a little while
And forget what I was thinking about."

    That's totally something my dad would ask me, if I was taking care of my mind. It's a very dad question. From what I've read in interviews and stuff, Ben and his dad are cool. It sounds like Ben has a lot of respect for his dad.

    i thought this was such a cool thing to do. I'm not too sure about Ben's relationship with his dad, but this just seems like such a special thing to have about your dad to share with the world. His dad seems pretty coherent for just pretty much waking up, so that is cool also.

The Last Dance
Within Temptation
@[Kahiara:35260] Actually I think the husband passed away, "She sang for you last night She heard you were calling" Many people say they have felt, heard, or seen their loved ones after they have passed. "Don't be scared now Close your eyes She holds guard tonight Go on forward no remorse Life will take it's course" This is said to the late husband by a third part (never named), who encourages him to pass on. Because life will eventually continue. The phrase "holds guard" refers to the ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wake_(ceremony) ) which is a Christian ceremony held after someone dies. Now it is usually held right after the funeral, but in most celtiic countries the wake is held before the funeral. "She danced with you last night so you will remember All you have shared, a lifetime." This sentence feels as if the only thing it wants to convey is their history together, namely, husband and wife. For the rest it just refers back to the first verse.

Alma Matters
The man has pseudo-friends who constantly criticize his actions. They moralize him, "teach" him and advise him to make a significant change in his life, because the way he is and what he does is not what they say it should be. They may find his life lame or immoral. They hold themselves up as role models. The man replies that he will make his own choices and decisions and he does not agree to unconditionally make himself under the influence of questionable quality advice. He justifies this by saying that there is always someone for whom he will be important, no matter what he does and no matter what he is. Although it is not said directly, I read it as meaning that he will always be important to himself in every way and he will always have his own support. "Everyone is different and maybe that's a good thing, but you exceeded that mark 1000 times" - I remember very well how sad the words I once heard (from my peers and it was in negative context) at school made me feel.
