The ones that intrigue me the most at the moment are from The Answer by Bad Religion:

Long ago in a dusty village
full of hunger, pain and strife
a man came forth with a vision of truth
and the way to a better life

he was convinced he had the answer
and he compelled people to follow along
but the hunger never vanished
and the man was banished
and the village dried up and died

at a time when wise men peered
through glass tubes toward the sky
the heavens changed in predictable ways
and one man was able to find

that he had thought he found the answer
and he was quick to write his revelation
but as they were scrutinized
in his colleagues eyes
he soon became a mockery

don't tell me about the answer
'cause then another one will come along soon
I don't believe you have the answer
I've got ideas too

but if you've got enough naivete
and you've got conviction
then the answer is perfect for you

an urban sprawl sits choking on its discharge
overwhelmed by industry
searching for a modern day savior from another place
inclined toward charity

everyone's begging for an answer
without regard to validity
the searching never ends
it goes on and on for eternity

Hehehe, those lyrics do kinda fit you Bryant.

I've never been much of a country music fan, but Aaron Lewis' song Country Boy sums me up to a tee. If I wasn't babysitting this job in Texas (my buddy is getting married.....again), I would post the lyrics.(We don't have internet out here which is why I've been on the phone the last couple of days.) Not much metaphorically, just straight lyrics, but that is me and that will always be me. Yeah, I went through the whole anarchy thing in college and tried not to be this, but now that I have just accepted it, I have never been happier. Diesel 4X4's, hunting and fishing, love of friends and family is all I need......oh and a damn good beer every now and then.

BTW- I have a sneakin suspision that once you get a few miles on those tires of yours, you are gonna join the ranks of guys like me. Once a country boy, always a country boy. It's in the blood and most just wouldn't understand.

Ten years have got behind you.

You missed the starting gun"
