I once decided to change , thought

things similar to what this song is

About, reality set in, noticed I was a

One percent person, so I re-adapted

To the masses , when I go back to

Changing world for the best, I will take

It one step at s time

I watched a video on the Internet people committing suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge while this song played through it.

It saddens me greatly that most of your dreams are of something tragic & or of dying. You know who you are, whom I'm speaking of. :'(
