that the most necessary is possible. Like liberty and equality
that nothing is really impossible and written in stone
It's a progress: "Enough with cowardice"

The future meant for us is written in stone. There’s nothing we can do about it now.
I lie in bed, furious, as I try to get some sleep within the gray twinkle of this smoke-stained room.

The guest brought on for today’s episode said, “There’s no future left for us anymore.”

My sentence's been passed - would you share the penalty with me
Or will you also leave me
And run far away from me

With your own name, written in stone, you wouldn't dare to do harm

I will hide in the book you've read
I'll be there in what you think you've learned
life is more than what any text tells you<fn>life is more than what can be found in the pages of a book, life isn't written in stone.</fn>
you'll know someday when you find yourself alone and sad.

Then I lounge, one foot pivot while I'm spitting my poems
My poetry so vivid it was written in stone
They say Priest is some sort of mystic

It was named and proclaimed as a truth to be known

Again and again
Your name is written in stone
I'll wait until I'm with you

Were worked with my hands
Written in stone
They were once, not more
