Voices drone inside, outside, all around
and talk the chat of filling time,
You cut the crap, don’t play that game,
No shallow suburban lies
Tie you to the white picket fence
But do you feel lonely?
Wanna feel lonely with me? I don’t wanna
be alone no more. So come and be
lonely with me.

Thrash this sound and crash this scene
Let’s go where I can show you
All the places you’ve never seen,
All the roads that lead to the unknown,
Where no one ever goes
to find yourself in me,
Feel lonely in me
Don’t be alone no more.

One song can spark a moment, One flower can wake the dream.

One tree can start a forest, One bird can herald spring.

One smile begins a friendship, One handclasp lifts a soul.

One star can guide a ship at sea, One word can frame the goal.

One vote can change a nation, One sunbeam lights a room.

One candle wipes out darkness, One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey, One word must start each prayer.

One hope will raise our spirits, One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom, One heart can know what's true.

One life can make the difference, You see IT'S UP TO YOU

"To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
to leave the world a bit better, whether by a
healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded."

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do something for someone today. Give and don't worry about receiving. Pass it on. Let's make the world the place it should be.

Liquid forgetfulness slips easily enough
But when the morning prise open my eyes full stretch
Nothing is forgotten
Time falls in chunks, not quickly enough,
Too quickly, I can’t remember, I can’t forget,
The smile inside my head doesn’t match the photograph I found,
Life doesn’t care, it marches on relentless,
Drags us behind, kicks us ahead, its all the same,
We’re all just playing the waiting game.
