Army of me

2 02 2014

I have written some posts on dissociation, and even if people might feel this song has nothing to do with it, it still highlights one fact about dissociation: Dissociation means that we have different parts with their own unique abilities, weaknesses and strengths. Aguilera sings about the strong ones, and together they make an army. You have the wise, strong and the fighter. The point is also that when you are one of them, the others are in the background. A “fighter” would be in that mode, ready for attack with all that means in form of thoughts, feelings and actions. When you go from one mode to another, you “switch”. We all do it, so it`s not as otherworldly as the word dissociation suggests.

Enjoy the song, your time and yourself.
wise

Lyrics to the song. Notice the “parts” she sings about in the chorus.

I’ve been standing where you left me
Praying that you’d come and get me
But now I’ve found my second wind
Now I found my second skin
Well I know what you were thinking
You thought you’d watch me fade away
When you broke me into pieces
But I gave each piece a name

{Chorus}
One of me is wiser
One of me is stronger
One of me is a fighter
And there’s a thousand faces of me
And we’re gonna rise up
For every time you broke me
Well you’re gonna face an army
Army of me

{Christina Aguilera}
Welcome to my revolution
All your walls are breaking down
It’s time you had a taste of losing
Time the table’s turned around

I see a glimpse of recognition
But it’s too late, yes it’s too late
And what you though was your best decision
Just became your worst mistake

{Chorus}

So how does it feel
To know that I beat you?
That I can defeat you ?
Oh. how does it feel ?

It sure feels sweeter to me

Army of me

Be fearless! We need every part of us

Be fearless! We need every part of us

Have you seen the film “Sucker Punch”? That is where I first heard this song; the film has a really good soundtrack:) and gives a very powerful insight into being traumatised and dissociative.

Thanks for posting-fingers crossed this reply works.

Hope you enjoy sucker punch if you watch it 😉 .

No, don’t think I’ve read anne of greengables….though it seems another one of me may have(?).

just writing about it, and will post something about it tomorrow:) Must hear more of it first, but there are so many things that remind me of dissociation:)
Hope you all had a good day and got some energy and rest:)
