Beneath The Waves

I’ve been thinking of who I am.
And I’m not afraid.
The future is coming and pulling me down
Beneath the waves
With silver linings my life fades
Into gray
I search for purpose wandering off
So far away

So take me far from this place
Set me down beneath the waves
I’ve got no reason left to stay
So set me down beneath the waves
And I will call your name
And I will fall away
There’s nothing left of me to save
So set me down beneath the waves

There’s no point in being real
So ill be fake
The mask becomes part of my soul
And I’m afraid.
It takes it’s toll and I am left
Without a face
Anonymously passing through
This lonely race

So take me far from this place
Set me down beneath the waves
I’ve got no reason left to stay
So set me down beneath the waves
And I will call your name
And I will fall away
There’s nothing left of me to save
So set me down beneath the waves

Hold my heart
To stop this feeling
I am breathing on my own
All my life’s
a candle burning
And I don’t want to watch it blow
Just yet

Today…

Was stressful, freeing, satisfying, and enjoyable, all at the same time.   I think I rocked my audition, and now I’m finishing up this National Profile on China.  Then tomorrow morning I leave for Tampa!  It’s gonna be a long weekend.  But a good one.:)

For the ladies.

I just wanted to let you know that your constant posts of “I can’t wait for my prince to come” and “I just want a love like this” pictures really show guys that you’re not desperate at all and are really attractive.  Please, continue.

If the world ends friday, I will be happy knowing I’ve seen creation as beautiful as this.

I find it amazing how many Christians don’t know what the nephilim, or “Watchers,” are.  This stuff makes so much sense throughout history and really ties together the whole story of God’s relationship to man. 

I’m usually against posts like this, as I feel relationships should lie completely and only between the two individuals and God, not the whole world.  However, tonight, let me just make a single statement:  I love this girl.

Today one of my best friends is getting married to the love of his life.  They’ve been together for six years and are finally pledging themselves to each other forever.  I wish them all the best, and I’m honored to be a part of it.

This hat belonged to my Great Grandfather.   The tag on the inside says “made in 1948.”  I never got to know him, but at least I have a bit of him with me.
