About Me:
I`m a guy living with three cats. (No, I`m not gay, lol). I used to be a ranked tennis player in the U.S., but a bad back injury put an end to that. I then worked at Microsoft as a coder until I realized that I had enough money so that I didn`t have to work for anyone. So now I write books and code software, play videogames, grow my hair even longer and read Cracked. It`s a great way to get some chuckles and actually learn stuff I didn`t know. Go figure. Anyway, if you`ve accepted my friend invite, thank you. I value my online acquaintances. (Also, I have a strong loyalty to my friends, or just anyone anywhere that are unjustly attacked and I especially have a hatred for bullies. Be warned) UPDATE: I lost my best friend Rascal last year, (my Rare White Panther, at least he thought he was and I wasn`t gonna tell him any different), my buddy, my pal, my bedpartner. I miss you, old friend.

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun

Along the Long Road and on down the Causeway
Do they still meet there by the Cut

There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps
Running before time took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
With friends surrounded
The nights of wonder

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force of some inner tide

At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There's a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Though down this road we've been so many times

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river
Forever and ever...

Close the door, put out the light.
You know they won't be home tonight.
The snow falls hard and don't you know?
The winds of Thor are blowing cold.
They're wearing steel that's bright and true
They carry news that must get through.

They choose the path where no-one goes.

They hold no quarter.

Walking side by side with death, The devil mocks their every step
The snow drives back the foot that's slow, The dogs of doom are howling more
They carry news that must get through, To build a dream for me and you

They choose the path where no-one goes.

They hold no quarter. They ask no quarter.
The pain, the pain without quarter.
They ask no quarter.
The dogs of doom are howling more!
