In this cold, cold world of compromise
We've all come to this fork in the road
Of the lessons we've learned in this here life
Which road will we uphold?
Though we know right from wrong
We're often stuck in the middle
And it's at these times we kneel to pray
Though the world we live in is either black or white
We often operate in the gray
See many of the decisions we've made in our life
Are based on Photos of events in our lifetime
But if the lens was out of focus when our mind took the pictures
Then we may as well have been blind
So we've compromised, and we compromise
In situations where our discipline is not that strong
Until we feel good, good as we could
About compromising what's right
when doing what's wrong!

  2. I don't really know if these guys are guilty Don, but I know a few Men that has left the school system due to accursation made. The thing is guilty or not their careers is basically ruined, That's why so many men just avoid the system all together. So many different side to this subject!

  3. Read a couple articles, I had no idea the arrests were from '07. I agreed, it's always best to avoid the legal system altogether. I speak from experience.
