I'm gonna make a mistake
I'm gonna do it on purpose
I'm gonna waste my time
'Cause I'm full as a tick
And I'm scratching at the surface
And what I find is mine
every normal man must be tempted, at times,
to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
and begin slitting throats.
Time you take it
You look so good
You take your time
Tick, tick, tick
You take it
Let's have a look
Take, take, take your time
hoarding time and space
A single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born.
— Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
From this moment life has begun
From this moment you are the one
Right beside you is where I belong
From this moment on
And what did you think,
I would say at this moment,
When I'm faced with the knowledge,
That you just don't love me ?
And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
- Edmund Burke
the hardest part is things already said
getting better, worse, i can not tell
I have a tale to tell
Sometimes it gets so hard to hide it well
I was not ready for the fall
Too blind to see the writing on the wall
A man can tell a thousand lies
I've learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned, 'till then
It will burn inside of me
The east and the west are mine, the north and the south are mine. All seems beautiful to me.
— Walt Whitman
Where is that one thing that will see me through
Reasons, excuses, I still don't have you
Is that all there is? Is that all there is?
If that's all there is, my friend
Then let's keep dancing
Let's break out the booze and have a ball
If that's all there is.
