Throughout the ages, fire has been a major weapon of destruction It's no use waiting until the fire starts Be prepared
There are all kinds of games, and all kinds of suckers.
From the vast number of vibrations that we interpret as sound, we may gather a wealth of meaning and enjoyment
The Arc 05:43
As long as men are free to ask what they will, Free to say what they think, Free to think what they must, Science will never regress, And freedom itself will never be wholly lost.
There will be great destruction, death and injuries Great fear will interfere with the ability of many to understand what has happened Actual danger will produce alertness and increased efficiency
Every man has his breaking point
It doesn't always end in tragedy, but it can
Fading 05:04
In the fading light, there were no easy victories


We are done waiting
We are broken but not beaten
Finally seeing the strength within
Finally finding the voice to scream
While we have strength to stand we will fight to feel alive
While we have blood pumping we will find love to give

The Wretch is Michael Weeks, also featuring Darren Halm, Eric Schlappi and a host of assorted guests.
