I can decide what I give
But it’s not up to me what I get given
Unthinkable surprises about to happen
But what they are…

Frozen in the steam and everything to hide
Deep in the bathtub, make it good and hot
Make it hot enough to wash everything off
You have the right to your labor, but not to the fruits of your labor. Never consider yourself the cause of the results of your activities, and never become attached to not doing your duty. -Baghavad Gita 2.47
Why you want to move so fast? We don’t have to take our clothes off to have a good time.
You better take the walls of Jericho
Put your lips together and blow
Goin’ to the very top
Where the truth crystallizes like jewels in the rock – Joe Strummer
