in perfect sync

that lightspeed pace

When standing still
We find we move
There is an answer
For us to prove

Our thoughts have value

The food that we crave

- While I appreciate your response, I say it's an empty gesture to just say everything is God without looking at the data and trying to understand the nature of things.

it’s the nature of politics…. Neither side is right, both sides play dirty, so the system prevents long terms and applies constant voting to keep the balance.
