Everything you love will soon fly away
On the wings of an unknown destiny
Behind the sun and disappearing sky
Everyone you love will pass away
Some before, some after, some together
Somewhere along the way
Everything you are will be forgot
Your memory dies with those who knew you
History itself grows old and falls apart
Everything you've gathered will be lost
Ripped from your hand by fate's desire
Or the entropic breath of time
Everything we are, we are when we're alone
Chaos and order stand side by side
One day sitting on the top of the world
The next day dying on the side of the road

    General CommentMy guess. Everything doesn't last forever. You could apply it to people who are obsessed with material items. They don't realize that it will all soon fade away in the end. In the end, we all end up dead and every memory we left on earth will eventually vanish and never be recovered. A good song. Then again my guess could be wrong.

    General CommentToday earlier when I was sitting in the Pentecostal church, listening to out beloved youth-pastor preach with Matthew's in The Bible.

    Matthew 6:19-21

    "Do not collect yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and rust rapes and where thieves break in and steal. But collect yourselves treasures to Heaven, where moths nor rust rape, or thieves break in or steal. Because where your tresure is, there is your heart."

    I think ZAO got some inspiration from this one. It's obivious why, so I won't even tell ya. Read the quote and think for yourselves. Thanks!

    Peace and Love!
