You got people I got people
You got kids, I got kids
You got beef, I guess we beefin'
and that's just the way it is
You got life insurance motherfucker?
well then so do I
At least we know our children be took care of when we die

You got people I got people
You got kids, I got kids
You got beef, I guess we beefin'
and that's just the way it is
You got little homies, motherfucker?
well then so do I
At least we know our people still be riding when we die.

All the other kids with the pumped-up kicks
you'd better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped-up kicks
you'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

Security: Public



I set out to be the realist and the illest of my time,
Knew I'd probably end up dyin' in my prime,
When I finally got a chance I knew I'd shine,
But I seem to end up slippin' every time,
In this world people quickly drop a dime,
I'm a stand up guy, I go and do my time,
Any time you wanna test me, come and try,
'Fore I swallow my pride, I'm gonna die,
Till the day that I go I'm gonna ride,
Cuz you know I've got God on my side.






.









In the land of gods and monsters
I was an angel.
Living in the garden of evil,
Screwed up, scared, doing anything that I needed.
Shining like a fiery beacon.
You got that medicine I need
Fame, liquor, love, give it to me slowly.
Put your hands on my waist, do it softly.
Me and God we don’t get along, so now I sing.











.







Come take a walk on the wild side
Let me kiss you hard in the pouring rain
You like your girls insane,
So choose your last words, this is the last time
Cause you and I, we were born to die.
Lost but now I am found
I can see but once I was blind
I was so confused as a little child
Tried to take what I could get
Scared that I couldn't find
All the answers honey

Will you still love me
When I'm no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I'm no longer beautiful?























Even angels have their wicked schemes
but you take that to new extremes
But you'll always be my hero
even though you've lost your mind.

I won't die alone and be left there
Well I guess I'll just go home,
Oh God knows where.
Because death is just so full and man so small.
Well I'm scared of what's behind and what's before.

But there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

Subject: Life after death
Security: Public
“We believe in life,” Ahajas said.
“Life after death?”
Ahajas smoothed her tentacles briefly in agreement. “When I’m dead,” she said, “I will nourish other life.”
“But I mean—”
“If I died on a lifeless world, a world that could sustain some form of life if it were tenacious enough, organelles within each cell of my body would survive and evolve. In perhaps a thousand million years, that world would be as full of life as this one.”
“...it would?”
“Yes. Our ancestors have seeded a great many barren worlds that way. Nothing is more tenacious than the life we are made of. A world of life from apparent death, from dissolution. That’s what we believe in.”
“Nothing more?”
Ahajas became smooth enough with amusement to reflect firelight. “No, Lelka. Nothing more.”

When his eyes closed for the last time, I thought perhaps I would finally leave the world. But even then, I lingered. Shif-re sang the song I taught her and Kiya moved with my motions. Joseph thought of me when his daughter was born. Gera named her baby Dinah. Re-mose married and told his wife about the mother who had sent him away so that he would not die but live. Re-mose's children bore children unto the hundredth generation. Some of them live in the land of my birth and some in the cold and windy places that Werenro described the light of my mothers' fire.

Egypt loved the lotus because it never dies. It is the same for people who are loved.

Spin me round just to pin me down
on the cover of this strange bed
Spin me round just to pin me down

Spin me round just to pin me down,
I'll be gone by the night's end
Spin me round just to pin me down.

I'll be home in a little while.

"These men are down from the upper levels. It appears that there's a second rallying point for the defense, and it's doing very well. The Seanchan are breaking off their attack below to focus there."

    "Where?" Saerin asked eagerly. "Specifically?"

    "The twenty-second, Aes Sedai. Northeastern quarter."

    "What?" Katerine asked. "The Brown Ajah sections?"

    No. That was what had been there before. Now, with the swapping of the Tower's corridors, that area of the Tower was . . . "The novices' quarters?" Saerin said. That seemed even more ridiculous. "How in the world. . . ." She trailed off, eyes widening slightly. "Egwene."

[...]

    But she was a fount of Power, drawn from deep within the fluted rod in her hands, channeled through a group of novices and Accepted hiding in the room behind, bound to her in circle. Egwene was part of the fires that burned in the Tower, bloodying the sky with their flames, painting the air with their smoke. She almost seemed not a being of flesh, but one of pure Power, sending judgment to those who had dared bring war to the Tower itself. Blasts of lightning stormed from the sky, the clouds churning above. Fire sprouted from her hands.

There's such a difference between us,
and a million miles.

Hello from the other side.
I must have called a thousand times,
to tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
but when I call you never seem to be home.

Subject: They tell all they know, and then stop.

Sorrow be damned and all your plans. Fuck the faithful, fuck the committed, the dedicated, the true believers; fuck all the sure and certain people prepared to maim and kill whoever got in their way; fuck every cause that ended in murder and a child screaming.

--Against a Dark Background, Iain M Banks

























But of course there is no way to tell this or to hear it. Until you are the woman on the bricks, you have no idea how death stands in the corner, ready to play his part. Until you are the woman on the bricks, you do not know the power that rises from other women-even strangers speaking an unknown tongue, invoking the names of unfamiliar goddesses.

I do not aim with my hand;
He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I aim with my eye.

I do not shoot with my hand;
He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I shoot with my mind.

I do not kill with my gun;
He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father.
I kill with my heart.
