Favorite Quote:
"'If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight.' Sun Tzu said that. And I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it. Then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honour. Then he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth. And then he herded them onto a boat. And then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo!

The days just drag on
Minutes take hours
And those hours are gone in a flash
What have I done
But just sit here and watch
As my life just passes me by

The darkness seems light
Being embalmed, I feel quite alive
And I'm so unaware
Of this box enclosing my heart
Why don't I care

I can't just go on
Living like this
I need more than to merely exist
Life has no meaning
If I just keep sitting
There needs to be a difference

Where is the light
Being embalmed, I need a new life
I was so unaware
Of this box enclosing my heart
Why didn't I care

I look to the heavens and cry to the Son
He shines His light
He gives me a purpose: to worship the One
Who gives me life

We are the light
Set on a hill, revealing true life
And we're making aware
Of the One who's stolen our hearts
Because He cares
