The most astounding fact is the knowledge that the atoms that comprise life on Earth, the atoms that make up the human body, are traceable to the crucibles that cooked light elements into heavy elements in their core under extreme temperatures and pressures. These stars, the high mass ones among them, went unstable in their later years. They collapsed and then exploded scattering their enriched guts across the galaxy. Guts made of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and all the fundamental ingredients of life itself. So that when I look up at the night sky and I know that yes, we are part of this universe, we are in this universe. But perhaps more important than both of those facts, is that the universe is in us.

"We never pray together We'll never be forever ever You sever the chance to leave here For better life in one short year Twenty-twelve is near In one short year"

These feet won't walk, this mouth won't talk, In the shoes or the words you think I ought. It's not you it's me that dreams can't you see? For a better life than yours turned out to be. You hold me down, let me out of this misery, Why don't you just kill me? We'll end this easily. My world is gone so this song is my afterpiece, I'm suffocating now, you cannot rescue me.

Down deep in my brain Is a piece of the slain People deceived through them games Equal to feed to the flame Sheeps who believed in their name Reached through a speech wit a bang Each of 'em meek in their lanes Seeped through a leak in their veins Thoughts of the faithful They're usually weak They usually serve as crutches to walk on these streets Its hard to envision So hard to beseech So hard to get wit 'em That is his regardless preach Hop in the whip but he can't come wit Talk shit be can't run shit And his cause is simple as y'all Put y'all all in the ship See if u stay afloat Watched you burn ya money I watched you taste the coke I got you earning for me I could Poly a Mono Trynna put mom in a condo I told my best hermano He's Ray Allen im Rondo Im controlling the scene Now I'm holding the green If it wasn't fa y'all I would so intervene i just holstered my dream 'Til it was close to be seen Now I'm in front of the product Gotta get one for the team team New jeers what I represent That's new words, new herb New excrement Thats new shit a new vic and two peppermints We all given bitches work-outs like new regiments A true element Lost in the cracks Off on our picard when martians attacks Shit these weirdos wear clothes that's Alternate wack Shit these air holes tear holes Across niggas back I tech nine 'em my rhyming is so intact Mohammed with the pick off Nostradamus wit facts Kilometers of kick offs Hope im runnin' 'em back Kilograms of brick raw Y'all shit come in a sack And I don't even move it Let's settle all confusion I just know a movement that oversees other movements I just know a cuban that opens faces like reubens I motivate his intrusion I know the cases conclusion Heres a lil' foreshadowing I'm over taken assuming the role herdin cattle In human mind through embattlement Hop in the whip but he can't come wit Talk shit be can't run shit And his cause is simple as y'all Put y'all all in the ship See if u stay afloat Watched you burn ya money I watched you taste the coke I got you earning for me

"Take a deep breath, and hold it in. We are connected in a remarkable way, not just to everything else in the universe but to everything that's ever existed on Earth. Because when you took that deep breath and held it in, it turned out, one can show, that in every breath you take there are on average ten oxygen atoms from the dying breath of Caesar when he said "Et tu Brute". But not only that, not just Caesar but almost everyone else who ever lived. From people who seem strange and different, you are connected in a way to everyone who's ever lived." - Lawrence Krauss

To be human is to have those imperfections, Beauty then is cracks and webs with right intentions. You brought moments lying dormant to my attention, Welcome vibe, product of time, and no invention. Populated it to the state it is, That I can see the past. Ageing as myself, pictures on the shelf, Nothing will ever last. Old is the new new Some said who knew When the first weed grew It would grow on you Yesterday's clue A familiar view

"This is probably going to be the most simplest one for you to answer, but what if you're wrong?" "Well, what if I'm wrong, I mean... anybody could be wrong. We could all be wrong about the Flying Spaghetti Monster and the Pink Unicorn and the flying teapot. You happen to have been brought up, I would presume, in the Christian faith. You know what it's like to not believe in a particular faith because you're not a Muslim. You're not a Hindu. Why aren't you a Hindu? Because you happen to have been brought up in America, not in India. If you were brought up in classical Greece you'd be believing in Zeus. If you were brought up in central Africa you'd be believing in the great Juju up the mountain. There's no particular reason to pick on the Judeo-Christian god, in which by the sheerest accident you happen to have been brought up and, and ask me the question, "What if I'm wrong?" What if you're wrong about the great Juju at the bottom of the sea?"

I've got this feeling It's now or never I don't know The world keeps turning Now what you say? What is it? I've got this feeling The world is turning I don't know Where we're going? Yeah I can't decide We can be safe Instead of dying alone would it feel, What would it feel like? I've got this feeling It's not enough to lie always It's never needed What you say? It's time. I know it's too late It's now or never Now or never I've got this feeling Is it only a dream? Take it away I've got this feeling It's now or never Why don't u stay? And I'll go on Coz we don't need it I've got this feeling It's all too late

I am on my wave, she is in addiction And i can't stand her ways, but she is in my system She got me goin high, high tryna fly with the rest of em But we don't know no difference I am on my wave, she is in addiction

Hunger never takes its love away Never for a single day. Haunting caverns of my mind Scaring me just what it finds. So the flagship rolls on by Watching the days as children cry. So the flagship rolls on in Watching the sinners sin. Longing evenings alone on the rock Wishing that your golden boy talks. The feature list is about to be played For all the world to finally be dazed. I want to gasp the cold air in my lungs Feeling the sense of songs to be sung. Touch on my skin aint supposed to cause pain But your touch does it again and again. So the flagship rolls on by Watching the days as children cry. So the flagship rolls on in Watching the sinners sin. Longing evenings alone on the rock Wishing that your golden boy talks. The feature list is about to be played For all the world to finally be dazed. The flagship comes, the flagship goes Where it comes from nobody knows. It comes from silence, that's filled with noise It came with guidance not to destroy. Such simple breaths. So the flagship rolls on by Watching the days as children cry. So the flagship rolls on in Watching the sinners sin. I wonder how the chore began Of making lights appear in sand. Lighting the way for the damned trip That life coined. The flagship.

Close my eyes I see you, so humbled I become Drifting in your beauty, and I'm dancing to your silent drum And I wonder if you see me insignificant am I Yet I know that you love me from the way that I abide In you, oh Lord in your beauty, in you Hallowed be Hallowed be Consecrated Creation So far away from this world you take me as I am This beauty unfolding the works of your hand In wonder I hold on to this moment you and I Hallowed be your beauty, filling up this earth and Sky Hallowed be... Hallowed be your beauty you're the essence of perfection The way that you provide your guidance and protection From the enemies of life, through the struggle through the strife Your beauty the plumb line, to guide Oh you guide me When I look upon your beauty Oh you guide me Lord No matter sunset, sunrise, or these cloudy skies see you're still the same I lift my eyes to the mountains where does my hope come from? I've had enough of shadows yes I've had enough of lies Oh no more tolerating this damnation in disguise See I want to stand before you free from the world's demise Standing in your beauty, accepting of your prize Hallowed be
