You get in there, you get the job done and you get the hell out.

Most things I worry about never happen anyway.

I'm frustrated by what I hear. Maybe it's not meant for me. Personally, I'm way too bright for a lot of the hip-hop lyrics to affect. I'm much too smart to think that jewelry or how cool I am is really going to change much about my personality. If you're dumb enough that it entertains you, have a great time. But I am seeking more than that.

You and I will meet again, When we're least expecting it, One day in some far off place, I will recognize your face, I won't say goodbye my friend, For you and I will meet again.

Even the losers get lucky sometimes. Even the losers keep a little bit of pride. They get lucky sometimes.

I really do love coming to this particular place.

We've been sent here to raise hell and cause chaos.

Yeah and its over before you know it, It all goes by so fast Yeah the bad nights take forever And the good nights don't ever seem to last.

Like a deer in the headlights, frozen in real time and I'm losing my mind, it's time to move on.
