Flirtin' with disaster, y’all damn sure know what I mean
You know, the way we run our lives, it makes no sense to me
I don't know about yourself or what you plan to be, yeah
When we gamble with our time we choose our destiny
The east and the west are mine, the north and the south are mine. All seems beautiful to me.
— Walt Whitman
Welcome to the jungle,
it gets worse here every day
You learn to live like an animal
in the jungle where we play
If you got a hunger for what you see,
you'll take it eventually
You can have anything you want,
but you better not take it from me
And I do believe it's true
That there are roads left in both of our shoes
But if the silence takes you
Then I hope it takes me too
So brown eyes I hold you near
Cause you're the only song I want to hear
Where you think you'll fall, I adore you.
Where you shut your soul, I will open for you.
If we had only known in a way we'd never reach this ground.
I know, silver eyes, I can see us shine.
I said, we will feel the weight fall away from us in time.
Searching our past for a true you and I,
You and I, You and I.
I may be kindly, I am ordinarily gentle, but in my line of business I am obliged to will terribly what I will at all. ~ Catherine the Great
The only girl I've ever loved
Was born with roses in her eyes
But then they buried her alive
One evening 1945
With just her sister at her side
And only weeks before the guns
All came and rained on everyone
Now she's a little boy in Spain
Playing pianos filled with flames
On empty rings around the sun
All sing to say my dream has come
"It is not length of life, but depth of life." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
