"Death is coming for us all, but not today Today you're living it, hey, you're really feeling it Give it everything you've got knowing that you can't take it with you And all you ever needed to exist has always been within you Gimme some of that good stuff that human spirit Cut it with a hundred percent endurance" -Yard Act
