after forever

Black Sabbath - After Forever

--------

Have you ever thought about your soul - can it be saved?
Or perhaps you think that when you're dead you just stay in your grave
Is God just a thought within your head or is he a part of you?
Is Christ just a name that you read in a book when you were in school?

When you think about death do you lose your breath or
do you keep your cool?
Would you like to see the Pope on the end of a rope
do you think he's a fool?
Well I have seen the truth, yes I've seen the light and I've changed my ways
And I'll be prepared when you're lonely and scared at the end of our days

Could it be you're afraid of what your friends might say
If they knew you believe in God above?
They should realize before they criticize
that God is the only way to love

Is your mind so small that you have to fall
In with the pack wherever they run
Will you still sneer when death is near
And say they may as well worship the sun?

I think it was true it was people like you that crucified Christ
I think it is sad the opinion you had was the only one voiced
Will you be so sure when your day is near, say you don't believe?
You had the chance but you turned it down, now you can't retrieve

Perhaps you'll think before you say that God is dead and gone
Open your eyes, just realize that he's the one
The only one who can save you now from all this sin and hate
Or will you still jeer at all you hear? Yes! I think it's too late.

Bet you didn't know Ozzy Osbourne could write something like that, did you? Well, we're all full of surprises, aren't we?

Yes, this is a stop-gap measure to prevent the page from getting stale. But maybe it will spark some discussion or something. I don't know. All I know is I don't have time to actually write, so this might have to do for a week.

In explanation for the lack of posting: I've got to get used to school, get back into the groove, and earn gas money somehow. Going back and forth to school each day takes a quarter of a tank, and that's a considerable amount when premium is over $2.50 a gallon.

I want to take this time to wholeheartedly sponsor an American-backed coup d'etat of Saudi Arabia, or any petroleum-rich country, for that matter. I hear Yemen is nice this time of year. It doesn't even have to be a real coup. It can even be a putsch. Just get gas under $1.50 and I guarantee I will vote for you.

I expect a post regaling us with all the fun of your first day of school. I expect it soon. There's nothing to do in my apt and I can't drive anywhere. Entertain Me with your writings. NOW
