Philosophy Statement:
It is necessary for me to be an individual, for when darkness overcomes life, as it does for all at some point, one must stand alone. Only in myself can I face the shadows of life, and must be one amongst others and not one of the others, in order to enjoy and savor the ever fleeting light. Life is a struggle between these two forces, both with awesome power, both always overtaking the other. As the clock counts down, as the seconds pass away, all is a waste, if one cannot be just himself, as opposed to living only as and through others.

Let me please introduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I’m just another lonely broken hero…
Finding beauty in the vastness of the white
So lovely was the loneliness
Ne te quaesiveris extra

Runnin' Out of Time - Ozzy Osbourne





All I could think was
You’re my angel… Come and save me tonight
But the sun sets fast these days.
So here I go again
So alone in the world now...

The Lone Wolf

I saw God in the Devil's eyes and fell so far from grace,
And this fissure rapidly widened, and the phantasmagoric conception of myself,Was forced into the light of my conscious,

Those days were bright and filled with pain
But now shadows of the evening then crawl across,
And the night throws her pall upon that spot as upon all
Causing many nights of tragedy.

Because it was hard to hold a candle,
In the cold November rain.

And now it's the end… my only friend… the end.

Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay, I had to start it somewhere, so it started there.
You know the day destroys the night, night divides the day
My darkness and my light struggles, fighting inside
Just trying to survive, scratchin' to stay alive.

Because behind the masquerade, I'm a simple man, so afraid.
I would take a face from the ancient Gallery, and walk on down the hall
But now my conscience's got to be my guide.

I tried to find a light to guide me
I broke on through to the other side,
To the end of the night... end of the night.

Break On Through - The Doors




I was running out of faith and hope and reason
Then I escaped the darkness
Gotta see me change
It took this to make me see that life is beautiful

Now faith alone guides me,
Because I had an angel of mercy to see me through all my sins.
And when I understood I wept

And now I cut in stone the word which is to be my beacon and my banner.
