The Velawesomeraptor Himself


If you really want to know who I am, read this.

If you add me as a friend on your journal, and I don't add you back right away, PLEASE don't take offense. My Friends List is barely manageable as it is right now, and it takes forever just to catch up every morning...

OBLIGATORY PHILOSOPHYI don't think it's so much about what you ARE but what you want to be, if only for a moment.

* Take a picture: in that moment, you are a photographer.
* Draw a stick figure: in that moment, you are an artist.
* Sing a song: in that moment, you are a singer.

Then, you will achieve your destiny.”

~ Krishna

There is this thing that's like touching except you don't touch.
Back in the day it just went without saying at all.
All the world's history gradually dying of shock.
There is this thing that's like talking except you don't talk.
You... sing.
Sing for the bartender.
Sing for the janitor.
Sing for the camera.
Sing for the animal.
Sing for the children
shooting the children.
Sing for the teachers
who told you that you couldn't.
Just sing.
There is this thing
keeping everyone's lungs and lips
It is called fear
and it's seeing a great
After the show

But for now
let's just pretend we're all gonna
get bombed.
So sing.
Sing cause it's obvious.
Sing for the astronaut.
Sing for the president.
Sing for the terrorist.
Sing for the soccer team.
Sing for the ganga weed.
Sing for the kid
with the phone who refuses to.
Just sing.
Life is no cabaret.
We're inviting you anyway.
You motherfuckers just sing something.
You motherfuckers just sing something.
