If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
I want to conquer the world
Give all the idiots a brand new religion
Put an end to poverty uncleanliness and toil
Promote equality in all of my decisions
With a quick wink of an eye and a "God you must be joking"
Expose the culprits and feed them to the children
I'll do away with air pollution and then I'll save the whales
We'll have peace on earth and global communion
What/who changed my life and why
Reading Thus Spoke Zarathoustra and Anarachy Evolution, The Communist Manifesto.
"Everybody's worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there's a really easy way: stop participating in it." - Noam Chomsky
"Real Revolution Starts At Learning, If You're Not Angry, Then You Are Not Paying Attention. "
"Every time you wake up, everyday. Somebody tell you, you need a nicer car, you need a bigger house, you need a pill to make you happier
But the day, that we start to live, is the day we tell them to go fuck themselves. Are you with me?! "
"Don't let anyone tell you what to think, don't let anyone tell you what to believe.
Don't let anyone shove anything down your throat.
Life is about making up your mind for yourself,
and perhaps more importantly; Punk Rock is about making up your mind for yourself.
This song is about everything that we do, every step we take
it affects the direction of the world.
And it's up to you what direction you want that world to go in."
- Tim McIlrath
'Life is an act of endless creativity. With all its simmering tragedy and occasional catastrophe, a human life is an amazing thing to contemplate and experience. None of us had any special plan laid out for us when we were born. By abandoning the idea that an intelligent designer created us, we can wake with each dawn and say, "What's done is done. Now how can I make the best of the here and now?'
