-- | LYRICS |--

When I was six years old I broke my leg
I was running from my brother and his friends
tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down
I was younger then, take me back to when I
Found my heart and broke it here, made friends and lost them through the years
And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know, I’ve grown
but I can’t wait to go home

I’m on my way, driving at 90 down those country lanes
Singing to Tiny Dancer, And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real
When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

Fifteen years old and smoking hand rolled cigarettes
Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends
Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don’t reckon I did it right
I was younger then, take me back to when we found
Weekend jobs when we got paid and buy cheap spirits and drink them straight
Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we’ve grown
I can’t wait to go home

I’m on my way, driving at 90 down those country lanes
Singing to Tiny Dancer, And I miss the way you make me feel, it’s real
When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill

One friend left to sell clothes
One works down by the coast
One had two kids but lives alone
One’s brother overdosed
Ones already on his second wife
Ones just barely getting by
But these people raised me
And I can’t wait to go home

And I’m on my way, and I still remember those country lanes
When we did not know the answers, And I miss the way you make me feel, it’s real
When we watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill

Hi my name is Travis Ruggirello.  I am currently sleeping at St. Vincent de Paul homeless shelter.  I wanted to share another reflection....
"Victoria was short-tempered and defiant girl.  She hated sitting still, hated taking medicine, and hated being told what to do."  (Rebellious Victoria  taken from the book Victoria The Queen by Julia Baird Ch. 3 Pg. 22)In Proverbs 30:32 of the bible the words of Agur, son of Jakeh mentions if you has been foolish in praising yourself or plotted evil then the hand should be placed over your mouth.  Yesterday (9/21/17) around 6:10 PM I walked past a police officer in the parking lot near PETCO Park and called him a fake son of a bitch.  Around 8PM the same day I stated babbling about ESP, telekinesis, and thoughts being transmitted to my head to a police officer who was on his phone  at St. Vincent de Paul.  I hate how I am not allowed to be something sane because of the spiritual belief of people, places, and things.  I DEEPLY HATE BEING A GAY MAN IN DOWNTOWN SAN DIEGO, CA!!! OR SHOULD I SAY USA???!!!
"On the afternoon of September 24, 1832, Victoria writes that she was "VERY VERY VERY VERY HORRIBLY NAUGHTY!!!!!" -all underlined four times-but in her journal she simply reported, "The heat was intolerable [sic]."  When she made up stories for creative writing compositions, they were about children who were spoiled and disobedient and who needed to repent or be punished."  (Victoria documenting he behavior  taken from the book Victoria The Queen by Julia Baird Ch. 3 Pg. 23)In Proverbs 31:26 of the bible the words of King Lemuel mentions the virtues of a noble woman expressing she opens her mouth of wisdom and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.  Today (9/22/17) at 10 AM I had a therapy visit with the licensed psychologist I see on a regular basis.  I exposed myself to her expressing my antics with the police department and how I feel emotionally disturbed being a homosexual in Downtown San Diego, CA.  I didn't have a problem saying again how I hate being a gay man to the psychologist because of the interpretation of life from other people in various social classes. I also openly said to the psychologist something about being in the system and " the grid" and how I feel I am being abused. I didn't have a problem expressing how I wanted to be euthanatized.  I felt grateful that the psychologist was able to comfort me when I was elevated. 
"She later confessed she knew she was the "idol of the house," and she sometimes dared people to defy her.  Once, after being told that if she cried, her uncle the Duke of Sussex, who was also lived in Kensington Palace, would punish her, she proceeded to scream herself hoarse whenever he walked past."  (Victoria as a superior taken from the book Victoria The Queen by Julia Baird Ch. 3 Pg. 24)In Ecclesiastes 8:2 of the bible Solomon mentions to obey the kings' orders out of regard to the oath of God.   I hate being a homosexual who has to feel like I am not aware of what authority means because of my antics in public and the multiple house calls I have had with the police department in East County.  I hate how stereotypes, labels, and status does not allow me to be understood.  I hate how I can not evolve away from a hospital dress point of view because of the interpretation of life and/or imagination with sex, drugs and rock and roll from people within the homeless community and people that think like the police department and/or UCSD School of Medicine.   I hate how men that sleep with women make me feel like I do not have enough life experience to understand what a man is.  I DEEPLY HATE THE "PHILIA" POINT OF VIEW OF MEN THAT SLEEP WITH WOMEN AND/OR GAY MEN THAT THINK ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL.  I HATE HATE HATE HATE BEING A GAY MAN IN DOWNTOWN SAN DIEGO, CA!!! OR SHOULD I SAY USA????!!!
"She later told her eldest daughter: "I had a very unhappy life as a child; had no scope for my very violent feelings of affection-had no brothers and sisters to live with-never had a father-from my unfortunate circumstances was not on a comfortable or at all intimate or confidential footing with my mother...and did not know what a happy domestic life was!" " (Queen Victoria confessing her youth to Princess Victoria taken from the book Victoria The Queen by Julia Baird Ch. 3 Pgs. 24-25)In Proverbs 30:21-23 of the bible the words of King Lemuel mentions four things the earth cannot endure; a slave ruling a king, a fool glutted with food, a hated woman taken as a wife, and a servant girl takes place for a mistress.  I wish I felt allowed to understand something about the real world as a homosexual who recognizes something incredibly fake that happens to me every GOD DAMN DAY!!! I hate that I have to be manipulated to be on that disability route because I hate the idea of wanting the same things as the opposite sex and/or having the same imagination with sex, drugs, and rock and roll as men that sleep with women and/or gay men that think all men are created equal. 
"Lehzen's greatest concern was that Victoria be protected, well educated, and shaped into a strong-minded queen.  She was often blamed for Victoria's defiance and independence, but she was strict; she had simply recognized Victoria's innate pluck and nurtured it." (Baroness Lehzen as Governess to Victoria taken from the book Victoria The Queen by Julia Baird Ch. 3 Pg. 27)Yesterday (9/21/17) at 6:30 PM I went to a lecture presented by Citizen Science at the Downtown Public Library.  The science lecture was called  I Sleep, therefore I am. For an hour I sat through a powerpoint presentation on sleep led by Indrani Ganguly-Fitzgerald, PhD.  I was able to gain an understanding on the cognitive functions of sleep through her explanations with restoration, information processing and her Fruit Fly experiment.  After the lecture I thanked the instructor and left the building realizing that hour was just a coping skill for my survival as a homosexual who currently stays at a homeless shelter.  The instructor made me realize  the library is not a way to finish one's education. which I already knew.  I would hate to go to a real school while I stayed at a homeless shelter..  
"While not without faults, Victoria was never weak.  She was quick, intelligent pupil who liked alchemy and hated Latin and anatomy.  But her greatest passions were more dramatic than academic: dancing, singing, drawing, theater, opera, and ballet."  (During the time when Victoria was understanding a model of perfection taken from the book Victoria The Queen by Julia Baird Ch. 3 Pg. 28)I want to make it clear that I was born at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa, CA on August 14, 1982.  I went to Dailard Elementary School in San Diego, CA from Kindergarten to 6th grade.  Next I attended Pershing Jr. High School in San Diego, CA 7th grade, the following year it changed to a middle school.  In 9th grade I attended Patrick Henry High School in San Diego, CA and stayed there till the second semester of 11th grade.  For the next three semesters of high school I was at Mt. Everest Charter School in San Diego, CA.  I graduated high school with a 3.67 GPA in 2001.  I have college experience studying liberal arts and dance at Grossmont Community College in El Cajon, CA and the liberal arts at University of Phoenix (on campus) in San Diego, CA. My college GPA was 3.07.   I have 42% of my bachelor's finished. I also was a second generation trained dancer having a biological mother (RIP) as a credentialed dance teacher from Grossmont Community College where she received her A.A in dance and later she received her lifetime teaching credential at San Diego State University.  I was also once a competitive dancer with A Touch of Class Dance studio in Santee, CA as a teenager. In High School I had the opportunity to train with Dee Caspary and Tessandra Chavez choreographers of that TV Show So You Think You Can Dance.   Later I received scholarships to study at Academy of Performing Arts San Diego, The City Ballet School of San Diego, The Joffery Ballet School of New York, The Rock School for Dance Education in Philadelphia, and Lines Ballet School of San Francisco.  After high school I had the opportunity to train in Los Angeles, CA.  At age 19 I was teaching adults at Academy of Performing Arts San Diego and middle school/high school kids at Children and Creative Performing Arts Academy (without a bachelor's).  I also had the experience to perform professionally with The California Ballet and worked for Miss San Diego 2004 (my previous dance partner).  I also forgot I always had a father figure in my life.  I also currently have a relationship with my biological father  who was once in the marine corps, was once a life guard,  and received his bachelor's in accounting from San Diego State University. My father is currently disabled and rents a room in La Mesa.  I wish it seemed convincing that I have some college experience,  passing college math and psychology 101 on campus at the University of Phoenix. I wish I sounded smart enough to say I once practiced something analytical, sentimental, and courageous like dance.
