When it comes to luck, you make your own.

Music was my way of keeping people from looking through and around me. I wanted the heavies to know I was around.

You've got to learn to live with what you can't rise above.

Some guys they just give up living, others start dying little by little piece by piece, some guys come home from work and wash up, and go racing in the streets.

Blind faith in your leaders, or in anything, will get you killed.

Talk about a dream, try to make it real.

The best music is essentially there to provide you something to face the world with.

Poor men wanna be rich, rich men wanna be kings,And a king ain't satisfied till he rules everything.

You can't start a fire, worryin about your little world fallin apart, this gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark.
