1. dejected; dispirited; discouraged.
I stumbled across this gem from the Smashing Pumpkins 1998 album, “Adore,” while watching the return of Homicide: Life On The Streets to television for a movie to wrap up the series. At that time, I guess it was cathartic, as it brought out feelings I held inside after the passing of my grandfather. Also incorrectly thinking one of two friends, with the same name, had passed. Though bad just the same. In 2012, the song does not produce the same response, however it is sad and melancholy just the same.
It was a song I needed to hear at that time.
The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
