if you look a little deeper
You would see
I'm a lot less then you expect of me
Lived on the edge so long I don't even teeter
It's not your bravery that makes you a leader. It's knowing that everyone around you is equally scared.

This is the time this is the place
to erase a trace of the human race
and not to spare them a moment of grace
burning like the mace-
in their eye
but who'll hear their cry
the moment before they die
bake their brains like ms. lovelette's meat pies
it might sound a little shocking
hearing 9's cocking
bag over your face while my music's rocking
people laughing and mocking
as you get your eyes pulled out
we laugh while you shout
you know i'm about to freakout
and let your body rot in the nuclear fallout
**** the nations
i'll leave you shaken like a haitian
bombing radio stations
me plus you equals X solve the equation
X is death
X is death
X is death

The World is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it's real, because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round, and it has thrills and chills and is very brightly colored, and it's very loud. And it's fun, for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they've begun to question, 'Is this real, or is this just a ride?', and other people have remembered, and they've come back to us and they say 'Hey, don't worry. Don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.' and we **** THOSE PEOPLE.

"Shut him up! We have alot invested in this ride! SHUT HIM UP! Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account, and my family. This just has to be real."

It's just a ride.

But we always **** those good guys who try and tell us that. You ever noticed that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter, because ... It's just a ride.

And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear wants you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead see all of us as one.

Here's what we can do to change the world right now, to a better ride:

Take all that money we spent on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding, clothing, and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and WE CAN EXPLORE SPACE, TOGETHER, BOTH INNER AND OUTER, forever ... in peace.

-- Bill Hicks (1961 - 1994)
Bill Hicks is amazing and everyone should listen to some of his stand up
it's funny, it's social critique and philosophy and   a beautiful example of what humans can do when they think
other great men include Alan Watts and George Carlin
some of my favorite men, who've said what i've always thought and more

“Art washes away,
from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
No more pain, stress or strife.
“Have no fear of perfection,
you'll never reach it.”
So don't ever throw a fit.
“I saw the angel in the marble,
and carved until I set him free."
Amazed by what beauty could come from me.
"Art is not a thing;
it is a way."
So carpe diem... seize the day.
Includes qoutes from the following artists
-Michelangelo (sculptor)
-Elbert Hubbard (writer)
-Salvador Dalí (surrealist painter)
-Pablo Picasso (cubist painter)

What is perspective?
Perspective is the gift of feeling great
Like coffee after 8:00
And the curse of feeling like ****
Like the promotion you didn't get,
Perspective is however you want to perceive it
Good or bad
It's all a matter of how you look at it
And how you look at life
Either with joy in the sun
Or tears in the night

Sometimes i am carried by the wind
Floating along throughout this place,
It carries me and whatever i bring
My hopes and dreams floating through space,
And of the *****-ups i might be the king
Every crime committed, every vice has been sinned,
This is my transition
From waste to gold
Pain to cheer
A place neither new or old,
A place not far away there or close to here,
A place not restricted to any one nation

I'm on the edge but that's where the winds have taken me.

The thing about us kids from America,
Is that we want everything now
There's poverty and mass hysteria
And everyone looks like a cow
We want it all
And we don't care how we get it
We won't fall
We are the kids from America
We'll never ever be like you
We are the kids from America
We are the chosen few
We are the kids from America
