Religion N Death

It’s two days to the Steve Irwin Memorial at the Australian Zoo. Not sure if it’s gonna be shown live on Mediacorp or other news networks but Animal Planet Asia will be showing it at 7pm on Wednesday.

It’s unbelievable that there are so many bogus ‘Steve Irwin’s Death’ videos on youtube.com. Don’t these people have any respect?! We’re living in a fucking sick society!

What’s up with the Pope? Those comments made about Islam were foolish and uncalled for. You would expect more from the Pope. To all my Muslim readers, please forgive and forget. He certainly did not speak for the Catholic community and I assure you that Catholics and Christians alike do not share his thoughts.

Late last year, Eddy from the Tattoo Pub introduced me a beautiful song by a band called Dream Theater. To end this post, here are the lyrics to The Spirit Carries On.

Nicholas:
Where did we come from?
Why are we here?
Where do we go when we die?
What lies beyond
And what lay before?
Is anything certain in life?

They say, "Life is too short,"
"The here and the now"
And "You're only given one shot"
But could there be more,
Have I lived before,
Or could this be all that we've got?

If I die tomorrow
I'd be alright
Because I believe
That after we're gone
The spirit carries on

I used to be frightened of dying
I used to think death was the end
But that was before
I'm not scared anymore
I know that my soul will transcend

I may never find all the answers
I may never understand why
I may never prove
What I know to be true
But I know that I still have to try

If I die tomorrow
I'd be alright
Because I believe
That after we're gone
The spirit carries on

Victoria:
"Move on, be brave
Don't weep at my grave
Because I am no longer here
But please never let
Your memory of me disappear"

Nicholas:
Safe in the light that surrounds me
Free of the fear and the pain
My questioning mind
Has helped me to find
The meaning in my life again
Victoria's real
I finally feel
At peace with the girl in my dreams
And now that I'm here
It's perfectly clear
I found out what all of this means

If I die tomorrow
I'd be alright
Because I believe
That after we're gone
The spirit carries on
