What the Dinosaurs were trying to tell us.

Revolution has become a bit over-commercialized. Kinda like that toy you wanted desperately as a kid but when you got it, it broke within a few hours. We all want something we cannot have, maybe even something that was never meant to be possessed. Trying to make a person fit a particular label is like trying to put the sky in a box... it's just not going to happen. Don't try to "fix" something if it isn't broken, or rather stop trying to change everything just because you think something's gotten too old for your personal taste.

Who decided that the exact color of the sky was "sky blue"? The issue for this world is not that they are thinking too big, but they are dreaming too small. You cannot try to describe the expanse of the ocean in but a few words. It was all created so that it would take our breath away, not so that we could try to make all of it fit a certain scientific explanation.
"Our step mom we did everything to hate her. She took us down to the edge of Decatur. We saw the lion and the kangeroo take her down to the river where they caught a wild alligator . Sangamon River it overflowed, it caused a mudslide on the banks of the operator. Civil War skeletons in their graves, they came up clapping in the spirit of the aviator. The sound of the engines and the smell of the grain, we go riding on the abolition grain train. Steven A. Douglas was a great debater,  but Abraham Lincoln was the great emancipator. Chickenmobile with your rooster tail, I had my fill and I know how bad it feels. Stay awake and watch for the data, no small caterpiller, go congratulate her. Denominator, go Decatur, It's the great I Am. Abominate her, go Decatur, why did we hate her? It's the great I Am."-Sufjan Stevens
