i will begin with desiderata and then move on to some arcade fire lyrics...

Desiderata: (the part that i put in bold i wanna get tattooed on me)
-- written by Max Ehrmann in the 1920s --
Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

ok, now... some arcade fire

Wake Up

Somethin’ filled up my heart with nothin’, someone told me not to cry. But now that I’m older, my heart’s colder, and I can see that it’s a lie. Children wake up, hold your mistake up, before they turn the summer into dust. If the children don’t grow up, our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up. We’re just a million little god’s causin' rain storms turnin’ every good thing to rust. I guess we’ll just have to adjust. With my lighnin’ bolts a glowin’ I can see where I am goin’ to be when the reaper he reaches and touches my hand. With my lighnin’ bolts a glowin’ I can see where I am goin’ With my lighnin’ bolts a glowin’ I can see where I am go-goin’ You better look out below!


Rebellion (lies)
Sleeping is giving in, no matter what the time is. sleeping is giving in, so lift those heavy eyelids. people say that you'll die faster than without water. but we know it's just a lie, scare your son and scare your daughter. people say that your dreams are the only things that save ya. come on baby in our dreams, we can live our misbehaviour. Everytime you close your eyes lies, lies! people try and hide the night underneath the covers. people try and hide the light underneath the covers. come on hide your lovers underneath the covers. come on hide your lovers underneath the covers. hidin' from your brothers underneath the covers, come on hide your lovers underneath the covers. people say that you'll die faster than without water, but we know it's just a lie, scare your son, scare your daughter now here's the sun, it's alright! now here's the moon, it's alright! now here's the sun, it's alright! now here's the moon, it's alright! but everytime you close your eyes, lies!
