I love the way some songs make you happy or sad or both, each at different times. And when I say both I don't mean that reminiscent bullcrap you feel when you put on a farewell song. Happiness is a choice. And if you do not choose to be happy, you're either sad or getting there. But some songs just make you wonder about all you've done and all you could've; all you can and all you will and all you know you won't ever do.

Here's one of 'em. Nothing new or radical, just one of those songs. Divine Comedy indeed.

I'm the world you'll never see
I'm the slave you'll never free
I'm the truth you'll never know
I'm the place you'll never go
I'm the sound you'll never hear
I'm the course you'll never steer
I'm the will you'll not destroy
I'm the gin in the gin-soaked boy

I'm the half-truth in the lie
I'm the why not in the why
I'm the last roll of the die
I'm the old school in the tie
I'm the spirit in the sky
I'm the catcher in the rye
I'm the twinkle in her eye
I'm the Jeff Goldblum in the fly

Who am I?
