"This is an appeal, to the struggling and striving, stakeholders of this planet, this floating rock we call Earth, alas that means you, that means every one of your acquaintance, every figure your eyes skim past in the street, every charlatan still to defeat, every tender face you find solace in, now mimic the mindset William Wallace was in, dismount disembark descend from your existence slacken your angst and decant your hate, because in the long run they're about as useful as pouring acid onto your dinner plate, to muzzled masses that lead lives of deafening desperation, with Excalibur aloft King Arthur earned the throne but it's our minds we've gotta wrench out of stone, don't be fooled by its simplicity, there was never a broadcast made of such urgency, cos at no time before us did we grasp the scope of this emergency, ladle out love and logic by the boatload, equipped with that cargo you can take any road, now grab life seize time, this fight is for human kind."
""To every hour, its mystery. At dawn, the riddles of light and life. At noon, the conundrums of solidity. At three, in the hum and heat of the day, a phantom moon, already high. At dusk, memory. And at midnight? Oh then the enigma of time itself; of a day that will never come again passing into history while we sleep."
Clive Barker - Sacrament.
""Sex bears some resemblance to cookery: it fascinates people, we sometimes buy books full of complicated recipes and interesting pictures, and sometimes when we are really hungry we create vast banquets in our imagination - but at the end of the day we'd settle quite happily for egg and chips. If it's well done and maybe has a slice of tomato."
Terry Pratchett - The Fifth Elephant.
""Misery's forgotten chords, I strum in vain to please the lord, but he has never answered me, faith has waned eternally, an empty man who pass along, the woes of all religions' wrong, now the shadowed veil it falls, heed the clarion calls, so pray to music build a shrine, worship in these desperate times, fill your heart with every note, cherish it and cast a vote, cos god is in these laughing tones, salvation is found alone, haunted by its melody, music here will set you free, let it set you free, we build cathedrals to our pain, establish monuments to attain, freedom from all of the scars and the sins, lest we drown in the darkness within."
""We spend all of our lives going out of our minds, looking back to our birth forward to our demise, even scientists say everything is just light, not created destroyed but eternally bright, masters in every time lords in every place, those who stood up for love down in spite of the hate, we made it to the moon but we can't make it home, waiting on a rescue that never comes, made it to the moon but we can't make it home, maybe home is where the heart is given up - to the one."
""And maybe you're the angel I knew that you could be, well that must be the reason you bring out the devil in me, and deep under the covers an easy place to hide, and imagine the world isn't really going on outside, but you never seem to have any money, cos the decent people never get paid, but it's never really ever a problem, cos you can get miles away."
"43242 code 1, troops move forward let it all be done, beginning of the end soil has been tread, mother daughter father son sky burns death, premonition television stuttering indecision, we the people citizens lies are being force fed, money power cruelty blood is shed in our streets, when where does the sacrifice end?"
"Now, I don't know about you, but I don't think the primary purpose of your life, of my life and the entirety of the human race's is just to blindly consume to support a failing economy and a faulty system. Forever and ever until we run out of every resource and have to resort to blowing each other up to ensure our own survival. I don't think we're supposed to sit by either while we continue to use a long outdated system that produces war, poverty, collusion, corruption, ruins our environment and threatens every aspect of our health and does nothing but divide and segregate us. I don't think how much military equipment we are selling to other countries, how many hydrocarbons we're burning, how much money is being printed and exchanged, is a good measure of how healthy our society is but I do think I can speak for everyone when I say, we're sick of this shit."
"And then we'll smile, as we devise a brand new peace prize, cash back euthanasia schemes, GM children low fat dreams, Jerry Springer crack cocaine, another black box another plane, instant access to friendly fire, plastic bullets green barbed wire, forget the violence forget the pain - our Happy Meals will taste the same, forget the scandal forget the sleaze - we'll drag the Real Thing to its knees."
""This place speaks to him it's got its own language, cold comfort through the gill cracked plaster, looks at him with eyes of paint blisters, squeezes music through a cheap transistor, voices of mothers - with their prisoners for brothers, and the bug-eyed little creatures - terrifying stupid teachers, who then take it out on weaklings - spawning killing spree control freaks, who get married in their prisons - to abused and lonely women."
"You & I we may look the same but we are very far apart, there's bullet holes where my compassion used to be and there is violence in my heart, into fire you can send us from the fire we return, you can label us a consequence of how much you have to learn, you have set something in motion much greater than you've ever known, standing there in all your great naivete about to reap what you have sown, time will feed upon your weaknesses & soon you'll lose the will to care, when you return to the place that you call home we will be there, we will be there."
""Immaculate deceptions going on every day, still you follow the clowns who give the circus away, reaching for something that's never been felt, and they're tightening their grip on your bible belt, dead eyed disciples who sin too deep, Jesus loves you but his love don't come cheap, and you pray, yeah you pray to be saved, buying a brief burst of heaven."
""It's in the way that you look, it's in the books that won't read, it comes and goes like a friend, it's with me right 'til the end, it's in the memories I've lost, it's concentrating too much, it's breaking down of relations and it's the beat of the clock, it's not being able to explain or get your feelings across, it's in the pain that won't leave you, it's coming straight back for us, it's in a new lease of life and a search that ends well, it's in finding that change, it's being happy again."
"So you found a girl who thinks really deep thoughts, what's so amazing about really deep thoughts?, boy you'd best pray that I bleed real soon, how's that thought for you?, my scream got lost in a paper cup, ya think there's a Heaven where some screams have gone?, I got twenty five bucks and a cracker do you think it's enough, to get us there?, years go by will I still be waiting for somebody else to understand?, years go by if I'm stripped of my beauty and the orange clouds raining in my eye, years go by will I choke on my tears 'til finally there is nothing left?, one more casualty you know we're too easy, easy, easy."
""I lose myself, I forget myself, sometimes I fog myself, yes I might fight myself but then I make amends, I freeze myself, rain on myself, okay so I stone myself, and I might even find myself, but then again what happens if I do?, so unzip my pride, baby open me up wide now, so I can show this to you, I wannna shine for you, babe I wanna sparkle too, I tell ya just like a diamond cursed, well you know it don't get no worse, babe you know that I save you time, the trouble now is mine, hold me in your splendour, I envy your surrender, and so show you victory."
""What's keeping my tongue tied?, I see when you roll your eyes, I swear any moment you will hear, my spirit explode, when there's fire on the ground should it turn my whole world around?, when the wheel's in the lake should I think it's a big mistake?, when there's smoke in the sky please wake me I don't know why, when your hand stretches out is it way beyond, way beyond my reach?"
""I walk the line of the disappointed, I celebrate when I'm in pain, my heart and mind can be disjointed, I've made a bed in this hole I've made, I recognise that I'm damaged, I sympathise that you are too, I wanna breathe without feeling so self-conscious, but it's hard when the world's staring at you."
""I'm the pariah (break me), I am the liar (save me), I can take anything (make me), accuse me of everything (take me), cut off the system (shape me), deny my existence (waste me), I won't be afraid (try me), I won't be unmade (deny me)."
""What a sad thing you are. Unable to answer even such a simple question without falling back on references and genealogies and what other people call you. Have you nothing of your own? Nothing to stand on that is not provided, defined, delineated, stamped, sanctioned, numbered and approved by others? How can you be expected to fight for someone else when you haven't the fairest idea who you are?"
Babylon 5 S02E21 - Comes The Inquisitor.
""And then I realize that, we need to use our own two feet to walk these tracks, and we have to squad up and we have to watch each others backs, when forgiveness is our torch and imagination our sword, well I'll tie the ropes of hate and slash open the minds of the bored, and we'll start a world so equal and free, every inch of this earth is yours all the land and all the sea, imagine no restrictions but the climate and the weather, then we can explore space together - forever."
""I am a man, and men are animals who tell stories. This is a gift from God, who spoke our species into being, but left the end of our story untold. That mystery is troubling to us. How could it be otherwise? Without the final part, we think, how are we to make sense of all that went before; which is to say, our lives? So we make stories of our own, in fevered and envious imitation of our Maker, hoping that we'll tell, by chance, what God left untold. And finishing our tale, come to understand why we were born."
