    Have I become Grath?

    I'm not young anymore(have I become Grath is a better title)

    Have I let myself down?
    Am I still wild and free?
    am I living up to expectations
    of how I wanted life to be?
    Will life be much different
    years from today?
    soon I'll wake up
    with a hair that's grey

    I'm not young anymore
    I'm not young anymore
    I used to be 24
    I used to be young before
    but I'm not young anymore

    Can I still like candy?
    Can I still have a good time?
    is life giving me lemons?
    or is life giving me lime?
    Have I rejected my ideas?
    turned my back on human worth?
    given up on the secular value
    that the meek inherit the earth?

    I know I'm so much younger
    than others, truth to be told
    but I get super bummed out
    that I am getting fucking old

My Dad had two free tickets cuz he was writing up a review for some fledgling online publication, but I passed it up because my band at the time had a show booked. When we pulled up to the locked gates of the venue we were told the show was canceled and we'd gotten no advanced notice. I think back on it almost 20 years later, and I'm still furious at that promoter. Some of the bands playing that I missed then I have gotten to see in the years since (Ben Folds Five/The Mighty Mighty Bosstones/Primus), but I still have yet to ever see Beck and certainly not back then when he was focusing on promoting Odelay. I'll try to remember to post it up here when I finish it.

    Well I'm nothing if not a man of my word. I'm a little bummed to see how long ago it was that I first came up with this chorus and that I finally just got around to finishing the verses this morning. Problem is most likely that I work at a place where I'm allowed to b.s. on the internet and have my ipod going all day haha. But the internet was down this morning and I had to do something, so four verses got scrawled out as they came to me. The chorus changes slightly each time to name drop different bands I missed.

    verse 1
    When I was fifteen my band was booked but never got to play
    at a snooty pool club somewhere in Colonia N J
    We weren't all that good in hindsight, but I'll never not be pissed
    not about our not performing, but the bigger show I missed

    chorus
    I'm still mad in case you're wondering
    decades long after the fact
    call it childish call it petty
    but I can't get that night back
    didn't see Soul Coughing and Cake Like at the 97 Horde
    to play a show that never happened yeah I'm still mad you rest assured

    verse 2
    My dad bought a couple tickets to go to that year's Horde Tour
    a peer of Lollapalooza just a little more obscure
    I would've loved to go but sadly said I already had plans
    that night to play and maybe win a battle of the bands

    chorus, but ending with

    I missed Beck, Ben Folds Five and Primus at the 97 Horde
    to play a show that never happened yeah I'm still mad you rest assured

    verse 3
    We spent all Summer practicing and telling all our friends
    to come cheer us to victory against those we'd contend
    We came up to a locked gate and they asked us how we didn't know
    that our efforts were all futile things were canceled weeks ago

    chorus, but with

    no Neil Young or Toad The Wet Sprocket at the 97 Horde
    to play a show that never happened yeah I'm still mad you rest assured

    verse 4
    Never met the prick in person which is prob'ly just as well
    cuz I'd miss who knows how many shows stuck rotting in a cell
    Don't know what I'd be capable of the thought just makes me wince
    cuz my blinding hate and anger has grown every Summer since

    final chorus, but with

    passed up skanking to The Bosstones at the 97 Horde
    to play a show that never happened yeah I'm still mad you rest assured

    Still Got Nothing to Do

    Verse 1

    Well, I guess I'm more or less a mess
    You say you don't know anymore,
    But I don't know any less

    And you thought the future
    was just a state of mind
    Nothing to cling to
    and no one to sing to

    And you were taught the past was
    just something to leave behind
    You could do whatever you'd want to
    Without it coming back to haunt you
    But it does mean something too

    Chorus

    I've got nothing to do
    I don't know where I'm going to
    I feel like nothing matters
    And I fall into the same old patterns
    and there's really nothing new

    I guess I'm not all that blue
    And I'm gonna make it through,
    But I visit the same cold places
    And take up the same old spaces
    And I've still got nothing to do

    Verse 2

    Well, I confess I'm in distress
    And you say you are as well
    And that's my fault, I guess

    I stare at the concrete
    as I still sit on my A-Bomb
    Head in hand
    and hands in pants now

    Still walking down the street
    with my heart full of napalm
    You think you know'em,
    But one day you'll show'em
    That you don't stand a chance now

    Bridge

    We all want to stand behind love
    But we all end up in front of it
    We're all trying hard to find love
    But we don't really know what we want of it



    I I'm still pretty much a less
    You say you don't care anymore
    But I don't care any less

    Doctor's Appointment

    Verse 1

    Sitting in the waiting room
    All the patients just can't wait
    They all want to get called in soon
    find out what's wrong before it's too late
    So if you ever wonder where
    my pride is, it's in the trash
    cuz I have to remove my underwear
    to show my doc my new found rash

    Chorus

    Doctor's appointment
    will I ever get well?
    or is the result disappointment?
    I guess only tine will tell
    Doctor's appointment
    I can't make up my mind
    I just have to find an ointment
    for my heinous behind

    Verse 2

    I woke up one Monday morning
    Everything was like it usually is
    but even if I knew what was forming
    I'd never know I'd feel like this
    I went to take a shower
    beheld the strangest sight
    Your own body has all the power
    over your honor and your life

    I can't believe I wrote this shit

    Schadenfreudian Slip

    Verse 1

    I don't mean to laugh when other people fall
    I know that I'm not like that at all
    but I'm always one laughter behind
    I never to take pleasure
    in other people's lack of leisure
    It's just a product of my unconscious mind

    Chorus

    I'm standing onshore, they're down with the ship
    It's just a schadenFreudian slip
    I honestly can't help it
    It's just a SchadenFreudian slip

    Verse 2

    I don't mean to smile when others fail
    for their wind-stop to set my sails
    but it seems like an infant complex
    I know you feel appalled
    but it's simply not my fault
    It's all sub-conscious cause and effects

    Bridge

    In the carnival of schadenFreud
    we all play our parts
    it's enough to get annoyed
    but not enough to break our hearts

    he's not here to please us

    I'm calling you

    I had lost my belief in the savior
    I did no longer feel safe
    but then I went to Norway
    which opened the doorway
    into a new found faith

    I almost crawled up to Satan
    I wasn't that hard to convince
    but I've finally come
    to a place I can drink rum
    and we're all confessing our sins

    Chorus

    If someone is broke
    someone else will pay
    We'll buy each other beer
    and then we'll pray
    thanks lord for giving me this place to fall into

    If someone gets arrested
    we will pay the bail
    we'll get wasted
    from the holy grail
    Can't you hear me Jesus, I'm calling you

    I've found what I missed
    I've started watching porn again
    Either videos or pictures
    then I'll read the holy scripture
    I never thought I'd be born again

    I've been scared of dying
    forgot the way of Christ
    but now I'll have this reunion
    in this holy communion
    in Vodka and Bourbon I was Baptized


    Sadness was upon me
    I had lost my only idol
    but through all the sorrow
    I can see a bright tomorrow
    with my moonshine and my bible

    Mother Mary hears me praying
    and I will never leave her
    Now I am in Norway
    and I will have it your way
    once again, I'm a believer
    There's now a video to the last song here!

    I tried to make a song that Frank Sinatra or Nat King Cole could sing, if they weren't dead.

    No one Knows Misery like Me

    Verse 1

    Everyone must've met her once
    and I guess most see her every couple of months
    some might run into her every day
    when she's there all the time, you get used to her they say
    But when she's there you cannot reject her
    and she always comes when you least expect her
    she's small and big, and last but not least
    she has the smile of a tyrant and the mind of a beast

    Chorus

    She shows up at day and up at night
    and she's always there within plain sight
    she might seem gone, but she's always there you see
    The creature that hides the sun
    she is known to everyone
    but no one knows Misery like me


    Verse 2
    She's always lurking behind the scenes
    and finds her way into your dreams
    Sometimes it's even so that she's
    sneaking into childhood memories
    she shows up when you're broken hearty
    and the morning after a party
    Within your sight and inside your mind
    she's someone you cannot leave behind

    Bridge

    Misery isn't your friend
    no matter what pleasure you give her
    she'll never come to an end
    you'll always have to be with her

    Rene, I hope you someday collaborate with a well established pop punk musician of well repute, someone like Ben Weasel. He could even lead you to eventually connect with Blink-182!

    Front Porch, West Virginia

    Verse 1

    I know they have taken your life away
    they've taken mine as well
    I no longer care if I die in here
    I'm already in personal hell
    A dagger with bloody hands
    held your head and slit your throat
    you were found on a front porch
    with bleaching/paling face and bloody coat
    I heard about it a day later
    depressed someone could do that
    everyone can be a victim
    I guess, I never really knew that

    Chorus

    Someone took your life and mine
    and shattered something in you
    and they don't ever serve their time
    they only continue

    They haven't only taken everything
    they destroyed something within ya
    it could be anyone or anything
    in Front Porch, West Virginia

    Verse 2

    They picked me up at three
    pulled me rapid and vicious
    I had nothing to say in the interrogation
    I must've seemed suspicious
    After their decree
    they said "you've got to trust us
    it's not just our triumph
    it's a victory for justice"
    I wonder if it's their own conviction
    or pure evil that made them do this
    maybe they're not that different
    from the one who made you go through this

    Bridge

    Who is asleep? Who is awake here?
    What is really at stake here?
    Our lives, our time or justice at large?

    I wrote two songs lately that I'm kind of happy with, the first one "Back to Debasement" seems to be a guide to hating yourself or to not hating yourself, I can't tell.

    Back to Debasement

    Verse 1

    Trying to raise self-awareness
    time to rise to the occasion
    you're tired of being careless
    losing yourself in degradation
    You want to be someone else instead of you
    you can only see the things you lack
    but you'll never grasp what's ahead of you
    if you keep on looking back

    Chorus

    Swallow your pride
    choke on your vanity
    think for yourself
    let go of your sanity
    if you aren't ready
    better find a replacement
    cuz the only road leads
    back to debasement

    Verse 2

    I tried to burn my bridges
    but soaked them with my tears
    I think I've become religious
    I lost my faith along the years
    Every time I'll feel this bad again
    because of castles I have built
    I have to visit the Vatican
    rid myself of Catholic guilt

    Bridge

    Back to debasement
    It's the only way
    to love and rise above you
    Back to debasement
    It's all OK
    No one really expects much of you


    The second song is supposed to be a conversation between two ex-lovers that still aren't over each other, and are not sure if they love or hate each other, and I think one of them has stronger feelings than the other. It's like a mentally challenged brain child of Bob Dylan and Dr. Frank, with Billy "The Milkman of Human Kindness" adding his milk to it as well. One could say the lyrics and the title are embarrassing, but I actually am shamelessly happy with it!

    Continent of Incontinence

    Verse 1

    You were once up on my pedestal
    and then I watched you rise and fall
    I used to know your every move
    but lately it seems that you've
    become someone I hardly know at all

    While there are still signs of ambivalence
    none of that really makes sense
    you were once a cover story
    until you marked your territory:
    the continent of incontinence

    Chorus

    Memories are matched and made
    but they're long gone, I'm afraid
    cuz even those are starting to fade
    You used to be stuck
    like glue in my head
    now you're just a withered flower
    in a molded bed

    Verse 2

    You're someone I was meant to miss
    and your lips were lent to kiss
    you used to be a bracket
    then I put you in life's jacket
    and you're vaguely a parenthesis

    And obviously I still cry tears
    being alone in the dark is one of my fears
    but my hands have stopped grabbing
    cuz you're like an abandoned cabin
    no one has seen in years


    Verse 3

    Your presence is still there on the back of the bus
    and sometimes as clear as it ever was
    and even if some of my hearts agree
    that your heart still plays a part of me
    I don't believe it really does

    So when you're alone in your room
    I can ask "It's you, I presume?"
    there's no need to be worried
    even if you've got me buried
    one day you'll be like me and release me from my tomb



    I guess it doesn't make much sense that one of these people have many hearts.

    happy being you

    Put your weary hands upon my shoulder
    press your index finger on my tongue
    We got boring as we got older
    but we still like to pretend we're young
    Take a look at me in the mirror
    and let's make a change
    I feel like I've never seen you clearer
    but you've also never seemed this strange

    Chorus

    but I'm happy being you
    and you're happy being me too
    all those things that we do
    they will last forever
    yeah, I'm happy being you
    and there's only one of us, too
    cuz none of us can do, any better

    Brush your little teeth and go to bed now
    put all your things upon your shelf
    there's lots going on in your head now
    it seems you are talking to yourself
    I'd like to make a promise
    that nothing shall separate us
    I know who my only one is
    cuz your're the only one I can really trust

    So I got this really weird idea and I'm kind of happy how the song turned out. I really like the line "She's still bound to her father's will", maybe "tied to" is better

    A comprehensive guide to main female Shakespeare characters in song

    Verse 1

    Lady Macbeth, involved in a crime of death
    her husband, a figure of blindness
    A place on the Scottish Monarchal throne
    unpasteurized her milk of human kindness
    Sends a letter to her husband
    about unlawful, lethal matters
    the blood is on his hands now
    and on hers too, from the Crimson dagger

    Now he rises to king
    danananana
    and Scotland's bound to sing
    danananana

    Chorus

    Danananana
    Danananana

    Verse 2

    Juliet, who could ever have made that bet
    who'd think the Capulet's "No"'d mean "no"
    Fell in love with a Montague
    another only child named Romeo
    The only way for their love to remain
    was secret holy matrimony
    now Romeo is sent away
    and she's doomed to wander lonely

    Now they both have died
    danananana
    in a pact of suicide
    danananana


    Verse 3

    Ophelia, is it really ya?
    down there in the brook?
    Can you leave us a spoiler
    For those who haven't read the book?
    You won't be the queen of Denmark
    the soliloquy is long
    now you sing in rhymes and verses
    an insane beauty of your songs

    I could see it in your smile
    dananananana
    Prince Hamlet wasn't worth your while
    dananananana

    Verse 4

    Portia, when is the real time of Venice?
    Bassanio is your love and thrill
    but the suitors got to go to Belmont
    she's still bound to her father's will
    Scholared and up in court
    she's morphed into Balthazar
    Gave a man a word and a sentence
    she sees mercy and justice from afar

    A bastion of mercy and love
    dananananana
    she won't let Shylock spill Christian blood
    dananananana

    I listened to Minor threat today and it inspired me to write a hardcore song and it turned out to be about privilege and defensiveness. It was also inspired by the Mens right activists thread. I'm worried people will take it the wrong way though. It's not really meant to mock people, but it's about an attitude which a lot of people seem to have and it's almost the same idea as "Virtual reality" above. When I wrote it down I wrote "I'm telling you know" and I dunno if that's a cooler title. I feel like this could be a badass song if it's angry enough.

    I'm telling you no

    Verse 1

    We live in a world without justice
    so how can we really know what trust is?
    We're on the top, others on the bottom
    sometimes the order changes, but we're glad that we're not them
    You tell me to be a quitter
    and maybe I'll consider
    but when you tell me to drop out when I'm the highest bidder
    I'm telling you no!!!!!

    Verse 2

    We're in desperate need for social change
    and some thinks that might be arranged
    but you think I should you join the battle?
    you're on your high horse caressing your saddle
    you tell me the slow will be fast
    and maybe it's ok that the first become the last
    but when you tell me I'm affected by the past
    I'm telling you no!

    Verse 3

    Everyone's exploited, everyone's a victim
    but when we saw those asses, me made sure we licked them
    I'm poor as hell, I want to kill the rich
    so how can you tell me I'm privileged?
    You tell me to be nice
    and maybe I will think twice
    but when you tell me to open my eyes
    I'm telling you no!

    Verse 4

    Yeah, sure, there are still bad attitudes
    but I am not one of those dudes
    so don'y say shame on me
    don't put the fucking blame on me
    You tell me to face it
    and maybe I'll embrace it
    but when you tell me to change it
    I'm telling you no!!!

    Blah blah blah
    I won't open them

    I lost my bottom dollar

    Verse 1

    I lost my bottom dollar
    but I gained an upper dime
    I gained another soul
    but I think i lost my mind
    I have a three year guarantee
    but I cannot turn back time
    I lost my bottom dollar
    but I gained an upper dime

    Verse 2

    I lost my family dog
    but I gained a friendly cat
    I lost a lot of weight
    but I gained a lot of fat
    I lost the baseball game
    but I gained another bat
    I lost my family dog
    but I gained a friendly cat

    Verse 3

    I lost all my kids
    but I gained another wife
    I lost a fork in the road
    but I gained my knife
    I made a bet with death
    and I lost my life
    I lost all my kids
    but I gained another wife

    Verse 4

    I lost my religion
    but I gained a new belief
    I lost a police officer
    but I gained myself a thief
    I lost physical damage
    but gained emotional relief
    I lost my religion
    but I gained a new belief

    Verse 5

    I lost my newest jacket
    but I gained my oldest shoes
    I gained a new war
    but I lost another truce
    now I lost my gainings
    and I'm gaining what I lose
    I lost my newest jacket
    but I gained my oldest shoes

    Verse 6

    I lost my bottom dollar
    but I gained my upper dime
    I lost a pint of beer
    but I gained a glass of wine
    I gained a good deed
    but I lost a bad crime
    I lost my bottom dollar
    but I gained my upper dime

    I guess I'm productive with lyrics nowadays, not really with melodies though, but whatever, the "whore's miscarriage" line is really horrific, but I also thought it was pretty good and the song it pretty awful in itself. It's just bunch of ideas I had in one.


    Calvary of life

    Verse 1


    I'm so tired of breaking my back
    will I ever earn my days of leisure?
    I'm so sick of stereotypes
    and new hip bands and media hype
    add a cigarette in their mouths for good measure
    Self debasement is my new addiction
    I'm heading for my own crucifixion

    Chorus

    It's the Calvary of life
    I make my own stigmata
    with a table knife
    It's the Golgotha of shame
    this is where all
    know who you are, but no one knows your name

    Verse 2

    I'm so tired of unwritten rules
    relying on a twisted simp of fate
    I'm so sick of gender roles
    and my own lack of self control
    I'm a xenophobic mind brought up to hate
    and love and marriage
    fall together like a whore's miscarriage

    Verse 3

    I'm so tired of pretending to care
    it was better when I refused to
    I'm so sick of making amends
    and saying words that don't make sense
    it's just something I got used to
    People always try to get under my skin
    but I'm never gonna let them in

    Another Cliché from René


    She's got

    She's got a pocket full of good intentions
    and memories she won't forget
    she's got a mind full of new inventions
    no one else has thought of yet
    She's got the world growing on her shoulders
    her walls covered in art
    and even if she's getting older
    she'll always be young at heart

    She's got much on her mind
    That no one else could find
    and none of the ever has the time

    She's got so many dreams
    and visions so it seems
    and I don't know what half of it means

    There are fires burning inside her
    but she's not that afraid
    and she always has a star to guide her
    even if it's starting to fade
    And sometimes she's feeling lonely
    without anybody else
    being aware that the only
    one she can really trust is herself

    I thought this song was pretty catchy, not sure if the lyrics are super great though, they're like whatevevs

    Strange time of year

    Verse 1

    It's a strange time of year
    everything turns dark
    when sitting by yourself at home
    is the cure for a broken heart
    It's 5 below outside
    and it's started snowing
    the grass could be nice and green
    but it isn't showing

    Pre-Chorus

    Looks like winter time is here to stay

    Chorus

    The snow covers the streets
    ice has filled the lake
    a sign says "It's fragile"
    but it probably won't break
    It's such a confusing season
    feels frightening, then it feels safe
    it's freezing like hell outside
    but my mind's already in another place

    Verse 2

    It's strange time of year
    but soon it will be spring
    till then I'll stay up all night long
    an think about everything
    If someone could read my mind
    would it be that interesting?
    if they wanted to know shit about me
    they should try DNA testing

    Pre-chorus

    Still spting is on it's way!

    Bridge

    I feel my head is getting hot
    even it's 5 below
    I keep looking for a melted spot
    far away from all the snow

    I hummed a song before going to bed last night and I didn't write it down, so I figured if I remembered it when waking up it'd be a good song, so this is the first official Read hard lyric in 2015!

    If words were

    If words were money
    I'd be fucking rich
    it'd be pretty funny
    and I could scratch my itch
    I could save up
    and pay for all my ills
    if words were money
    I could pay my bills

    if words were love
    I'd never turn back
    I would rise above
    I'd have an aphrodesiac
    My mind would be made of hearts
    I would know what to do
    if words were love
    I would give it all to you

    If words were
    if words were
    if words were everything
    if words were
    if words were
    if words weren't just to sing
    If words were everything

    If words were diamond rings
    and sparkling stuff that shines
    all my favorite things
    wordscavation from literate mines
    I'd be singing songs
    and I'd have fun tonight
    if words were diamond rings
    I'd make the world more bright

    if words were actions
    I would have lots to do
    no big distraction
    I'd make it all through
    I would be busy
    life would be fun
    if words were actions
    I would get it all done

    If words were happiness
    I would always smile
    but then again I'd smile a whole lot less
    we need breaks every once in a while
    because we'll never be satisfied
    with whatever we have
    if words were happiness
    I'd sit around and laugh

    If words were nothing
    I wouldn't know what to do
    no turkey, no stuffin'
    no red or blue
    I would always tremble
    and then I would fall
    if words were nothing
    I wouldn't have anything at all

    The kingdom of heaven

    The kingdom of heaven
    is very far from here
    it won't be found in 7/11
    or in this secular, corporate sphere
    Contraceptives sold in stores
    Making baby Jesus cry
    manipulative, liberal whores
    who say our holy book is a lie

    He'll always be there
    you will find your grace in prayer
    keep your soul free from sin
    have your faith in the holy one
    the mother, father and the son
    and the kingdom of heaven will let you in

    the Kingdom of heaven will let you in

    Those who bathe in vanity
    should have their bottoms kicked
    the only way for Christianity
    is obedient and strict
    The stupid intellectuals
    will have their lies to tell
    they say "accept bisexuals"
    but they don't know they're going to hell

    There's no way to run
    when Judgemnent day has come
    We're all waiting for armegeddon
    Some believe in science
    and in mindless self-reliance
    but those won't get you into heaven

    Science won't get you into heaven

    bridge

    They say they have found
    that the world is round
    they say around a burning sun we turn
    but that won't save them when their souls will burn

    Abstain from alcohol
    stay away from sin
    Church will save your soul
    join in and sing the hymn
    he's not here to please us
    and your soul is filled with sin
    you can't expect love from Jesus
    if you won't love him

    There's no kingdom waiting
    for those who worship Satan
    those vile and sinful whores
    so hold on to your virginity
    and salute the holy trinity
    and the kingdom of heaven is yours

    The kingdom of heaven is yours


    I'm calling you

    I had lost my belief in the savior
    I did no longer feel safe
    but then I went to Norway
    which opened the doorway
    into a new found faith

    I almost crawled up to Satan
    I wasn't that hard to convince
    but I've finally come
    to a place I can drink rum
    and we're all confessing our sins

    Chorus

    If someone is broke
    someone else will pay
    We'll buy each other beer
    and then we'll pray
    thanks lord for giving me this place to fall into

    If someone gets arrested
    we will pay the bail
    we'll get wasted
    from the holy grail
    Can't you hear me Jesus, I'm calling you

    I've found what I missed
    I've started watching porn again
    Either videos or pictures
    then I'll read the holy scripture
    I never thought I'd be born again

    I've been scared of dying
    forgot the way of Christ
    but now I'll have this reunion
    in this holy communion
    in Vodka and Bourbon I was Baptized


    Sadness was upon me
    I had lost my only idol
    but through all the sorrow
    I can see a bright tomorrow
    with my moonshine and my bible

    Mother Mary hears me praying
    and I will never leave her
    Now I am in Norway
    and I will have it your way
    once again, I'm a believer

    I don't think BenTm would find the Moptop family offensive!

    Best lyrics ever:

    Moptop Christmas

    Verse 1

    Now the Xmas spirit is upon them
    for Tammy, Billy, Laurie and all of them
    On Halloween they were watching the Omen
    Now they are all out building snowmen
    Tammy's got her temper, Billy has his smile
    the Moptop haircut will never go out of style
    They got Rudolph and Santa and Baby Jesus too
    All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth and you

    Chorus

    It's a Moptop Christmas
    Gotta let your spirit rise
    Christmas is in them
    you can see it in their eyes
    Jimmy's drinking eggnog
    Rita's drinking beer
    Have a (happy) Moptop Christmas
    and a Moptop new year

    Verse 2

    Billy wrote a Xmas song
    He made sure it wasn't too long
    Had a smile all over his face
    singing "Frosty's carrot is in the wrong place"
    Jimmy and Rita wants a TV
    Tammy wants and AG-3
    Laurie wants her very first car
    and Billy wants and electric guitar

    Bridge

    A new year is coming
    for the Moptops
    And it'll be a good one
    They make lots of cookies
    sing lots of carols
    it's all done for good fun
