Well, ?ve been to London and ?ve been to gay Paris?ve followed the river and I got to the sea?ve been down on the bottom of a world full of liesI ai?t looking for nothing in anyon?s eyesSometimes my burden seems more than I can bearI?s not dark yet, but i?s getting thereI was born here and ?ll die here against my willI know it looks like ?m moving, but ?m standing stillEvery nerve in my body is so vacant and numbI ca?t even remember what it was I came here to get away fromDo?t even hear a murmur of a prayerI?s not dark yet, but i?s getting there-Bob Dylan,?Not Dark Ye?

DESTINY is a feeling you have that you know something about yourself nobody else does. The picture you have in your own mind of what you're about WILL COME TRUE. It's a kind of a thing you kind of have to keep to your own self, because it's a fragile feeling, and you put it out there, then someone will kill it. It's best to keep that all inside.
