    Live Life Life is crazy,

    
and totally unpredictable... 
It's going to push you over,
 kick you while you're down
 and hit you when you try to get back up.
 Not everything can beat you.
 Things are going to change you, 
 But you get to choose which ones you let change you.

    In a world full of fear,

    be courageous. In a world full of lies, be honest. In a world where few care, be compassionate. In a world full of phonies, be yourself. Because the world sees you. The world hopes for you. The world is inspired by you. The world can be better because of you.

    The cold truth slips out of drunken lips.
