اين انت .. ايتها الجوهره المجنونه

هل .... هل تستطيع ان تفرق؟
بين الجنه و الجحيم؟
بين السماوات الزرقاء و الآلام؟
و هل تستطيع ان تفرق .. بين حقل اخضر و سياج فولاذي بارد؟
بين ابتسامه و ستار؟
فهل تستطيع .. ان تفرق؟

وهل اجبروك علي مبادله ... أبطالك بأشباحك؟
رماد ساخن .. بشجير؟
هواء ساخن .. بنسيم عليل؟
الراحه المثلجه .. بالتغيير؟
وهل ابدلت دور المطحون في الحرب .. بدور الزعيم في القفص؟

كم اتنمي ، كم اتنمي ان تكون هنا
انا و انت كالاطياف التائهه .. نسبح في حوض سمك .. سنه تلو الاخره
نجري فوق نفس الارض العتيقه .. فماذا وجدنا؟
وجدنا مخاوفنا القديمه

فكم تمنيت ان تكون هنا

Life, Religion and Human Nature

Phil Cooper: "It doesn't matter whether you're selling Jesus or Buddha or civil rights or 'How to Make Money in Real Estate With No Money Down.' That doesn't make you a human being; it makes you a marketing rep. If you want to talk to somebody honestly, as a human being, ask him about his kids. Find out what his dreams are - just to find out, for no other reason. Because as soon as you lay your hands on a conversation to steer it, it's not a conversation anymore; it's a pitch. And you're not a human being; you're a marketing rep."

A Chronic State of Skepticism

I'm torn between making "comfortable" money with no real prospect of progression, and building a vague yet a prestigious career which pays trivial amounts of money and requires more patience, tolerance and endurance than I can ever imagine.

Quality of life has always been my ultimate concern, but ever since my new social status; I've been focusing my drive towards meeting my dire financial obligations, in simpler words; echoed by academy award winner Cuba Gooding Jr. .. "Show me the money".

Values VS Money

What I want VS What I need

Challenge VS Comfort

Dangerous Hope VS Adaptation

A trooper in a war zone VS a leader in a bird's cage

Random Lyrics #3

"The future teaches you to be alone
The present to be afraid and cold
So if I can shoot rabbits
Then I can shoot fascists"

"Gravity keeps my head down
Or is it maybe shame
At being so young
and being so vain"

If you Tolerate this, Then your children will be next - Manic street preachers
This is My Truth Tell Me Yours (1998)
