Quote of the day: "In a quantity of light, you can search for all of your life, but it's finite. From a sudden burst of sound, the recoil may never be found, but it is finite (finite but incalculable)." - Finite

When everybody dies around you, from someone else's gun,
It really makes you stop and think about the years to come.
Something good had to happen to the human race.
We all had better stop hoping and set our heads on straight.

You've gotta turn over a new leaf, 'cause that old one's turning on you.
We've gotta turn over a new leaf. It's the future's only hope or we are doomed.

Today is over, it's already shot, so we can think about ourselves.
They keep on working on our nature, they're saying that can only help.
Start throwing out your pockets, keep what you really only need.
Save life and earth and water, there can't be any other need.

You've gotta turn over a new leaf, 'cause that old one's turning on you.
You've gotta turn over a new leaf. It's the future's only hope or we are doomed.

You've gotta turn over a new leaf, 'cause that old one's turning on you.
We've gotta turn over a new leaf. And let your love come on through.
You've gotta turn over a new leaf, 'cause that old one's turning on you.
We've gotta turn over a new leaf, a new, a new, a new.
