I'd rather be...
I'd rather be with...
I'd rather be with an animal
why would you wanna hurt me?
so frightened of your pain...

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star
In somebody else's sky, but why, why, why
Can't it be, can't it be mine

- Pearl Jam

I wish a wish I dream to dream
I try to try and I live to live
And die to die and I cry to cry
But I know why

- Soundgarden

This world is spinning around me
This world is spinning without me
Every day send future to past
Every breath leaves me one less to my last


You are once again surrounded by a brilliant white light. allow the light to lead you away from your past

and into this lifetime. as the light dissipates you will slowly fade back into consciousness remembering

all you have learned. when I tell you to open your eyes you will return to the present, feeling peaceful

and refreshed. open your eyes, Nicholas.

- Dream Theater

I don't want to be hostile.
I don't want to be dismal.
But I don't want to rot in an apathetic existence either.
I want to believe you,
and I want to trust
and I want to have faith to put away the dagger.

But you lie, cheat, and steal.
And yet
I tolerate you.

Veil of virtue hung to hide your method
while I smile and laugh and dance
and sing your praise and glory.
Shroud of virtue hung to mask your stigma
as I smile and laugh and dance
and sing your glory

while you
lie, cheat, and steal.
How can I tolerate you.

Our guilt, our blame,
I've been far too sympathetic.
Our blood, our fault.
I've been far too sympathetic.

I am not innocent.
You are not innocent.
Noone is innocent.

I will no longer tolerate you
Even if I must go down beside you.
No one is innocent.

- Tool

Run your mouth when I'm not around
Its easy to achieve
You cry to weak friends that sympathize
Can you hear the violins playing you song?
Those same friends tell me your every word

- Pantera

You're perfect, yes, it's true
But without me you're only you

- Faith No More

We are all part of the same compost heap. Listen up, maggots. You are not special. You are not a
beautiful or unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else. Reject the
basic assumptions of civilization, especially the importance of material possessions. You're not your
job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the
contents of your wallet. You're not your fucking khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the
world. Its not until you lose everything that you are free to do anything.
