Fifth And Clark

The pavement cracks my feet. The moon is full... dreams still light my way.

Two big nights. Two big losses. Two more miles to run...

"Give me the strength to move this mountain..." I pick up the pace. I want my breath to disappear.

Each step is another reminder of my defeat. The distance blurs. My jaw stings to the rhythm of my stride. It's midsummer and I don't have any answers.

So I run a little further. So I stay out a little longer.

I believe in a place called home. These humble streets are the roots that wind deep and grip tightly the fabric of my existence. They remind me of who, and why I am...and of how far I have come, and still have to go. And they won't let me stop.

Life is about opportunity, about chances. And sometimes, about second chances. So I will take my shortcomings and wring them of dry of their lessons. What's left is the past, and I will put that behind me...

This Saturday in the brightest lights, in the grandest city in all of the world the guard changes hands...

The anticipation cuts out my sight and I scream the night my rage. No one needs to listen. And anyone who could hear wouldn't understand anyway. No one wants this as bad as me. Not Bryan, not Claudio, and not Nigel. I will run until the feeling in my legs dies like the echoes my voice carries into the Midwestern sky. Until all my thoughts are burned into the blacktop by the pouring sweat of my brow. Until the pain ceases and all that remains is belief. Hope. Until all I have is hope. We are the ones we've been waiting for. Change happens today.

The revolution continues to grow Tyler, and I know that you'll be victorious both nights this weekend.

Cannot wait til Saturday arrives. I'm glad you are in the main event. I'm sure, regardless, it will be an amazing match to see. I'll be rooting for you.

Your words are smooth as ever, Tyler. And I believe in you to win this Saturday, I'll be watching and showing my support not only for you but for Age of the Fall. Because just like Jimmy said, "Age of the Fall is unstoppable."

Your revolution is horseshit... The saddest thing is Tyler, your a great wrestler but you are Jimmy't bitch. Stand on your own two feet because your are certainly stronger then him... So in closing grow a fuckin pair of balls!
