Favorite Quote:
I reject your reality and substitute my own.


When the world crumbles,
When words fail,
When rules give way to chaos,
I will stand and say:
Such is life. Such is life.

When ties disintegrate,
When love wains,
When all there is to feel is strife,
I will stand and say:
Such is life. Such is life.

When fire consumes,
When relief is far,
When our souls collide,
I will stand and say:
Such is life. Such is life.

When I let you down,
When your god forsakes you,
When earth betrays you,
I will stand and say:
Such is life. Such is life.

When your flesh melts,
When your adhere to the ground,
When you’re in a hurry and go nowhere,
I will stand and say:
Such is life. Such is life.

When you hear the music of death,
When redemption is out of reach,
When you feel your heart burning,
I will stand and say:
Such is life. Such is life.

Life eludes us,
With its melancholy manners,
With its dysfunctional decisions and, having perfectly destroyed us,
Walks away, satisfied; knowing it is the victor.
Instead of thrashing against, wasting precious energy,
I will stand and say:
Such is life. Such is life.
