    I'm living this life to live again
    Not running the race soley for a win
    I'm in this for the fulliment of soul
    Striving to reach an collective goal
    You are my brother therefore I carry you
    Even if you won't act like you know you 'ought' to
    For the weight of my brother is never too much
    Until you can stand alone I will be your crutch
    But crutches are not to be a lifetime appendage
    They are temporary support until you can manage
    You have to need to suceed just as much you need air
    For we must rise collectively if we are to ever get there
    I'm not preaching something I myself haven't had to live
    So you've got to believe me when I say we can achieve
    Collectively we shall conquer the entire universe
    But apart we are surely destined to be cursed
    So get it together brother for I have need of you
    To the reach the goal of seeing us all make it thru

    There is nothing like the support of a fellow brother or sister when we're in need. In unity who knows how far we may climb. There is such truth and strength in your words.

    He ain't heavy, he's our brother,
    that's how we got to treat one another.
    We wash the hands, and the hands wash the face
    it's the only way, we'll win this race!!
    ^5 to ya
