Whenever you’re taking life too seriously, just listen to this.
Life is like a ride in an amusement park
and when you go on it you think it’s real,
because that’s how powerful our minds are.
And the ride goes up and down and round and round,
it has thrills and chills and is very brightly colored
and it’s very loud.
And it’s fun, for a while.
Some have been on the ride for a long time
and they begin to question, ‘Is this real, or is this just a ride?’
and other people have remembered and they come back to us
and they say ‘Hey, don’t worry. Don’t be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.’
and we KILL those people.
“Shut him up! I have a lot invested in this ride! SHUT HIM UP!
Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account, and my family.
This has to be real.”
It’s just a ride.
But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that,
you ever noticed that? And let the demons run amok.
But it doesn’t matter, because … It’s just a ride.
And we can change it anytime we want.
It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money.
Just a choice right now, between fear and love.
