Track Name: (You Think You're) John Fucking Locke
The most common insecurity is our destination after our conscious fades away. The biggest factor in how one molds their existence, is nothing more than a distraction from what is really important; who we are in the present. I know in my heart the life I lead now means more to this world, than any "reward" I may receive after death. I know this to be the truth. I refuse to sacrifice the life that I've been given in the hopes of something greater, when all I need is right in front of me. Because I believe in man, I believe in myself, and nothing else. I can't put my faith in uncertainty. While there's still no proof of validity amongst the old familiar pages, which to me are nothing more than fucking words. I will choose life
over faith, and I will put my trust back in myself. And
then I'll be free. Together we can eliminate the worry
and the fear from the minds and hearts of our fellow man. I know in my heart who I need to be.
Track Name: To The Grave
Struggling to remain rooted in the depths of positivity, while modern day eats away at the foundation around me. And nothing that I do or say seems to rid me of this cynicism. This isn't how I hoped I'd ever feel, and I will not allow myself to become the advocate for everything that I stand against. And I will not be consumed by pessimism. I will choose to live, rather than "exist." And while the weight of the world pins me down, I know that humanity is something worth fighting for. Even though we must acknowledge our flaws and those of the world around us, we cannot allow them to control what's ours. We control our own destiny, from this day and to the grave. I will not turn my back on the problems I will face. I will embrace and overcome, and use them to create a better future. Living day to day is a gift I refuse to squander away. We control our own destiny.
