A Quote by Raphie on abuse, violence, music, b-side, piper, fear, kite, and sorrow

I know.  You got beat up.  So did I.  And then we beat up each other.  Just call it a B-side melody with an A-side whiplash like NOBODY business.  The way I see it, the best way to deal with it is to just write a better tune and flip the A-side to the B-side and the B-side to the Z.  Put it away folks and let it sleep because there’s a piper man a playin’ to a wholly brand new beat.  Flip the Z side to the B side and the A side to the C.  That my friends is how you navigate the darkness; to turn the fright into a kite and the sorrow into sight.

A Quote by Butch Hancock on music, indigo, ahimsa, and water

 Come all you mad and raging fearless friends of war and peace,
 Come all you sad self-righteous frightened friends down on your bended knees,
 All beings on this earth, you must not harm them;
 All weapons you hold deep within your heart, you must disarm them.

 Every man you meet's your son.
 Every woman is your daughter.
 Go find someeone who's thirsty,
 And give them water.
