A Song From A Robot's Perspective

If I came to your land, you'd ask me what I see.
I see large and small things in technicolor.
The droning hum in the back of my mind stifles my perception
But overall, its a pretty sight.

If I came to your land, I would wish to see
All the people you talk about creating their dreams
Because once i shut off, i often pretend that i see
These people dancing in the streets
And overall, its a pretty sight.

Now Im in your land and Im left wondering
Why were you disappointed and afraid to speak?
I may not be much of a thinker but this i see:
a movement of lovers and a distance of reverie
overall its a pretty sight

dont lose it now, dont lose this sight
overall, its a pretty sight
overall dont lose this sight

My friend is in Uganda.

Timmy and I have talked about writing a musical.
We're not sure what it will be called, but it will be about people our age--16-19--trying to do everything in their power to save the desperate world.
I've been exploring a new style of writing music for the hasn't been working out very well, but right now i just came up with something.

I'm holding on to the future
This is my song of what I see
And in this town, I'll see the future
Of empty souls that learn to breathe.

and that's pretty much the chorus of it.
I'm really liking it.

Im attepting to write a paper for English but my mind keeps turning to the lyrics of Ecclesiastes.
Meaningless, meaningless. Everything is meaningless. Utterly meaningless. Meaningless

Nothing could ring anymore true. Not only because I hate writing papers, but also because is only about one thing. There is no meaning unless God is in it. This paper means nothing. It could be the downfall of my class, but really...who cares? I could have to drop out of my expensive university and go to the crappiest college ever, but it wouldn't matter at all.
Fear God and keep His commandments.

I could even stop going to school (GASP WHAT?!) and that would be perfectly fine. God is so proud of everything I've done already and He'll continue to be proud of me no matter what I do. It doesnt matter if I get terrible grades or amazing grades. He is incredibly proud of me. Thats a great feeling that I love.

It is for this reason that im going to take a quarter off of school.

My Heart and My Prayer

I'm beginning my album on Saturday. I'm really excited and can't wait to really get going on it. I feel like this is what I need right now. I need something to get out there. I need my heart on a disc I suppose.

My prayer is that it would be truly worshipful. I want to have my heart truly sung out. I want it to be pleasing to God. I want God to be there in every step of the way. Picking out musicians, playing parts, tracking, mixing, mastering, everything. I know he will be which excites me more than anything.
Anyway, this is dumb because I know no one will ever comment on this, or read it for that matter...
