This past weekend I went out to Covington for the christening of Davin Wayne Davis; the youngest son of one of my oldest friends. On the way out there I started thinking about our time growing up which led to thoughts of another friend Mick. Very few of you reading this will know who that is. Mick is the only person I have ever met that I have been able to start a conversation about techno music with and not have to explain a word of what we are talking about. Everyone else I have had educate. Some refuse to be enlightened [ ;) ] but most come around.

Any way, the first time I met Mick was when I stopped by his house because I saw Dennis' car parked in the drive way. I basically just knocked on a strange door and asked if my friend was inside and was invited in. So, I was chilling in Mick's room with Dennis and Gabe (another friend of mine) when Mick left the room to do something. While he was gone I decided to peruse the CDs behind is DJ booth to see what he had. Lo and behold he had a copy of Best of Rave: Volume 1. When Mick got back I asked him if he would play "Silicon Jesus" (a track by Psykosonik) and he wanted to know how I knew he had that. I told him that I looked at the CDs he had and saw the Best of Rave album. That was how we established our friendship a mutual love for techno music without having to explain it to the other person first. But, Mick has been in and out of jail over the years (currently in it seems) so our friendship has essentially disintegrated.

Whilst thinking about all of this I decided to put my Psykosonik CD in and listen to it just to complete the reminiscing. The CD is still in my CD player and I was listening to it today while picking up lunch. The last track on the CD is one of my favorites and it was the last to play at lunch; ending just as I pulled into a parking space on campus. The song inspired me to kick it old school here and post the lyrics. So, here they are (I love this track it rocks hard):

'i, Caesar Have Destroyed Faiths.'
'hail Caesar'
'hail Caesar'
'i, Caesar...'
'i, Caesar Have Destroyed Faiths.'
You Think Your Loving This, But You're Too Blind To See.
If I Told You I Was Jesus, Would You Turn To Follow Me.
Inside Of Me, Inside Of You.
The Myth That We've Been Coming To.
If I Spoke Of Eternity, Would You Crucify Me Too.
Why Build A Shrine To The Race Of Man?
There's No Separation.
Why Can't You Understand?
I Am God.
You Are God.
We Are, We Are, We Are God.
I Am God.
You Are God.
We Are, We Are, We Are, We Are God.
Give Your Money To Me.
Just Give Your Money To Me.
And I Can Set You Free.
'i, Caesar Have Destroyed Faiths.'
Look Deep Within You And See The Nature Of Your Soul.
Extend Your Mind And See The Essence Of The Hole.
Inside Of You, Inside Of Me. Free Will, Responsibility.
You Must Save Or Damn Yourself, No One Else Can Set You Free.
Why Build A Shrine To The Race Of Man?
There's No Separation.
Why Can't You Understand?
I Am God.
You Are God.
We Are, We Are, We Are God.
I Am God.
You Are God.
We Are, We Are, We Are, We Are God.
Give Your Money To Me.
Just Give Your Money To Me.
And I Can Set You Free.
'i, Caesar Have Destroyed Faiths.'
I Can Set You Free.
We Are God.
Just Give Your Money To Me.
'glorify Thy Name.'
You Can Not Build Science To Delay This Mess.
There Is No Way For You, Because God Is Everywhere.
Why Build A Shrine To The Race Of Man?
There's No Separation.
Why Can't You Understand?
I Am God.
You Are God.
We Are, We Are, We Are God.
I Am God.
You Are God.
We Are, We Are, We Are, We Are God.
Give Your Money To Me.
Just Give Your Money To Me.
And I Can Set You Free.
'i, Caesar Have Destroyed Faiths.'
'hail Caesar'
'hail Caesar'
'i, Caesar...'
'i, Caesar Have Destroyed Faiths.'
'why Can't You See, That I Am God'
