    There will come a time in your life when you will ask yourself a series of questions.
    Am I happy with who I am?
    Am I happy with the people around me?
    Am I happy with what I'm doing?
    Am I happy with the way my life is going?
    Do I have a life or am I just living?
    Do not let these questions strain or trouble you just point youself in the direction of your dreams find your strengh in the sound and make your transition.

    Do not spend too much time thinking and not enough doing.
    Did I try the hardest at any of my dreams?
    Did I purposely let others discourage me when I knew I could?
    Will I die never knowing what I could have been or could of done?
    Do not let these doubts restrain of trouble you just point yourself in the direction of your dreams.
    Find your strength in the sound and make your transition.

    There will be people who say you can't - you will.
    There will be people who say you dont mix this with that and you will say "watch me".
    There will be people who will say play it safe, thats to risky - you will take that chance and have no fear.
    You wont let these questions restrain or trouble you.
    You will point yourself in the direction of your dreams.
    You will find the sreangth in the sound and make your transition.

    For those who know its time to leave the house and go back to the field.
    Find your strength in the sound and make your transition.

    "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy.
    I got love in my tummy,
    And I feel like a-lovin you:
    Love, you're such a sweet thing,
    Good enough to eat thing
    And that's just a-what I'm gonna do.
    Ooh love, to hold ya,
    Ooh love, to kiss ya,
    Ooh love, I love it so.
    Ooh love, you're sweeter,
    Sweeter than sugar.
    Ooh love, I wont let you go."

    Hey, even Homer missed the landing on the moon because of these AWESOME lyrics.

    Among My Souvenirs

    There's nothing left for me
    Of days that used to be
    They're just a memory
    Among my souvenirs

    Some letters sad and blue
    A photograph or two
    I see a rose from you
    Among my souvenirs

    A few more tokens rest
    Within my treasure chest
    And, though they do their best
    To give me consolation,

    I count them all apart
    And, as the teardrops start,
    I find a broken heart
    Among my souvenirs

    I count them all apart
    And, as the teardrops start,
    I find a broken heart
    Among my souvenirs.

    Drowning - Scary Kids Scaring Kids

    Stand up!
    You know you have the right too!
    Speak out
    For the things you that you believe!
    if we let them
    And they will stab you in the back over again
    Take your integrity

    How long will you let this go on
    They're drowning you in fear

    Speak up!
    Your voice just isn't breaking through
    It's time now!
    It's gone on way too long
    if we let them
    They will tear you into little pieces
    I think there is something wrong

    How long will you let this go on?
    They're drowning you in fear

    You're letting your hopes go straight to hell
    and i know the end is near,is near

    The time will come
    The time will come
    The time will come
    You will be sorry for what you've done
    The time will come

    How long will you let this go on?
    They're drowning you in fear

    You're letting your hopes go straight to hell
    And i know the end is near, is near

    You say you're sorry
    For what its worth

    [title: Jolene]Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
    Im begging of you please dont take my man
    Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
    Please dont take him just because you can
    Your beauty is beyond compare
    With flaming locks of auburn hair
    With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
    Your smile is like a breath of spring
    Your voice is soft like summer rain
    And I cannot compete with you, jolene

    He talks about you in his sleep
    Theres nothing I can do to keep
    From crying when he calls your name, jolene

    And I can easily understand
    How you could easily take my man
    But you dont know what he means to me, jolene

    Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
    Im begging of you please dont take my man
    Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
    Please dont take him just because you can

    You could have your choice of men
    But I could never love again
    Hes the only one for me, jolene

    I had to have this talk with you
    My happiness depends on you
    And whatever you decide to do, jolene

    Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
    Im begging of you please dont take my man
    Jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene
    Please dont take him even though you can
    Jolene, jolene

    Vincent by Don McLean

    and when no hope was left in sight on that starry
    starry night.
    You took your life
    as lovers often do;
    But I could have told you
    Vincent
    this world was never
    meant for one
    as beautiful as you.

    That's my favorite lyric from the song, but the entire thing is good stuff.

    [title: Vincent]Starry
    starry night
    paint your palette blue and grey

    look out on a summer's day
    with eyes that know the
    darkness in my soul.
    Shadows on the hills
    sketch the trees and the daffodils

    catch the breeze and the winter chills

    in colors on the snowy linen land.
    And now I understand what you tried to say to me

    how you suffered for your sanity
    how you tried to set them free.
    They would not listen
    they did not know how

    perhaps they'll listen now.

    Starry
    starry night
    flaming flo'rs that brightly blaze

    swirling clouds in violet haze reflect in
    Vincent's eyes of China blue.
    Colors changing hue
    morning fields of amber grain

    weathered faces lined in pain
    are soothed beneath the artist's
    loving hand.
    And now I understand what you tried to say to me

    how you suffered for your sanity
    how you tried to set them free.
    perhaps they'll listen now.

    For they could not love you
    but still your love was true

    and when no hope was left in sight on that starry
    starry night.
    You took your life
    as lovers often do;
    But I could have told you
    Vincent
    this world was never
    meant for one
    as beautiful as you.

    Starry
    starry night
    portraits hung in empty halls

    frameless heads on nameless walls
    with eyes
    that watch the world and can't forget.
    Like the stranger that you've met

    the ragged men in ragged clothes

    the silver thorn of bloddy rose
    lie crushed and broken
    on the virgin snow.
    And now I think I know what you tried to say to me

    how you suffered for your sanity

    how you tried to set them free.
    They would not listen
    they're not
    list'ning still
    perhaps they never will.

    now this is a story all about how my life got flip-turned upside down
    and i'd like to take a minute just sit right there
    i'll tell you how i became the prince of a town called bel-air

    west philidelphia born and raised
    on the playground is where i spent most of my days
    chillin out, maxin, relaxin all cool
    and shootin some b-ball outside the school
    when a couple of guys, who were up to no good
    started makin trouble in the neighborhood
    i got in one little fight and my mom got scared
    she said "your movin with your auntie and uncle in bel-air"

    i whistled for a cab and when it came near
    the license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror
    if anything i could say this cab was rare
    but i thought "now forget it" - "yo homes to bel-air!"

    i, pulled, up to the house about 7 or 8
    and i yelled to the cabbie "yo homes, smell ya later!"
    i looked at my kingdom i was finally there
    to sit on my throne as the prince of bel-air

    A hope in mind
    is secret, and
    a worn out smile reflects
    in a mirror.
    Bad dreams
    go right away and
    the world was destroyed
    when I woke up.
    We eat the dirt.
    Make up meanings.
    Seduce the reasons.
    Maintain the intellect.
    Want madly,
    embrace the solitude tightly
    and the memories I never forget.
    A profile I never forget.

    Write the facing time
    with the fragments.
    Save them and pile up
    their first cries of births.
    Devote myself solely
    to writing to figure out
    the changing prediction.
    Ones who changed by it.
    False name and a careless face
    echoes right before my eyes.
    Words of disqualification.
    Will they reach me?
    I see the end now.
    Let's go home.

    Not my favourite, but I likes



    they made a mistake at the toy factory
    and forgot to turn off the brain machine.
    so when security opened the door the next day,
    there was a plastic, brand new army.
    and they were are smart as geek is chic right now,
    and as clever as the invention of pillow cases.
    and they asked the guard who had made them,
    but his knees were so shaky and he wasn't so smart,
    so he shot them all dead.
