7 "I need to watch things die, from a good safe distance, vicariously I live while the whole world dies, you all feel the same so why can't we just admit it?" - Vicarious

Another Bill Hicks quote - ryanrimmel

10 "Well now I've got some advice for you little buddy, before you point your finger you should know that I'm the man, if I'm the man then you're the man and he's the man as well, so you can point that f****** finger up your a**!" - Hooker with a Penis

12 "Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind." - Lateralus
13 "Something has to change. Undeniable dilemma, boredom's not a burden anyone should bear. Constant over stimulation numbs me but I would not want you any other way." - Stinkfist
14 "Hold on, stay inside this holy reality, this holy experience. Choosing to be here in this body. This body holding me. It's my reminder here that I am not alone in this body, this body holding me, we are eternal, all this pain is an illusion." - Parabola
15 "There's a shadow just behind me, shrouding every step I take, making every promise empty, pointing every finger at me. Waiting like a stalking butler who upon the finger rests. Murder now the pattern must we, just because the son has come?" - Sober

18 "I know the pieces fit, cause I watched them tumble down, no fault, none to blame, that doesn't mean I don't desire to point the finger, blame the other, watch the temple topple over, to bring the pieces back together, rediscover communication." - Schism
19 "My shadow, shedding skin, I've been picking scabs again" - Forty-Six and Two
20 "I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile. I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well. I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave. Trust me." - Sober
21 "Suckin up all you can, suckin up all you can suck. Working up under my patience like a little tick, fat little parasite." - Ticks and Leeches
22 "A child's rhyme stuck in my head. It said that life is but a dream. I've spent so many years in question to find I've known this all along." - Third Eye
23 "What's coming through is alive. What's holding up is a mirror. But what's singing songs is a snake Looking to turn this piss to wine. They're both totally void of hate, But killing me just the same." - H.
24 "So good to see you once again. I thought that you were hiding. You thought that I had run away, chasing the tail of dogma. (I open my eye, and there we were)" - Third Eye
25 "Yeah, so long. We wish you well. Told us how you weren't afraid to die. Well, so long. Don't cry, yeah, Or feel too down. Not all martyrs see divinity. But at least you tried." - Eulogy
26 "I saw the gap again today, While you were begging me to stay. Take care not to make me enter. If I do we both may disappear." - Pushit
27 "I'm slipping back into the gap again. I'm alive when you're touching me, Alive when you're shoving me down, hey But I'd trade it all for just a little peace of mind." - Pushit
28 Monkey killing monkey killing monkey over pieces of the ground. Silly monkeys give them thumbs, they make a club and beat their brother down. - Right in Two
29 Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability to lift an eye to heaven conscious of his fleeting time here. - Right in Two
30 Angels on the sideline again. Benched along with patience and reason. Angels on the sideline again Wondering when this tug of war will end. - Right in Two

This just makes me laugh - ryanrimmel

32 Wear the grudge like a crown of negativity. Calculate what we will or will not tolerate. Desperate to control all and everything. Unable to forgive your scarlet lettermen - The Grudge

34 If you want to get your soul to heaven, trust in me, don't you judge or question. You are broken now but faith can heal you. Just do everything I tell you to do. - Opiate
35 Shine on forever. Shine on benevolent sun. Shine on upon the broken. Shine until the two become one. - Jambi
