Change (Sights Are Set)

I can't keep my feet on the ground or this disaster in my head. We've tried all we can, and don't get me wrong, it's gotten us this far...so far. In a year's time we've accomplished many of the goals we initially established. We have conquered the Briscoe Brothers. We captured tag team gold twice. And most importantly, we have traveled the globe with our message in mouth and delivered aloud that message to thousands of struggling people worldwide. Up until recently, I've felt accomplished.

Is it possible to sense a national aura of hopelessness? A global uncertainty? Maybe it's just me but from my eyes it seems that passion is slowly disappearing across the board. Chalk it up to an American economic landslide. Maybe an endless "war" in the Middle East. But I have been sensing something lately. I see it in everyone's eyes. Feel it in her touch. I can hear it in their voices. Everywhere I look for comfort, there is something missing.

All I can think about lately is change. Are we doing too much? Are we not doing enough? Am I imagining all of this despair? Or does this run even deeper than I can dig?

I spoke earlier about goals. Well what we've done is not enough. We are coming up short. Drastic times call for drastic measures, and I am no exception.

True change comes from within. And I know what must be done.

We are the ones we've been waiting for....

the war is waiting....

no more waiting.

It's time to be responsible and accountable for our shortcomings. This life is ours. We live today. I have never been good at regret, and next time the real dream won't slip away.

Son, your promises of change are as empty as Obama's.

Not saying of course, that Skeletor-I mean, McCain is any better.

Change is inevitable and soon it will happen. Age of the Fall can help with that only if, they make another impact. A greater one besides hanging one of the Briscoes.

That's what you guys need right now, another impact to show people that Age of the Fall aren't a bunch of pushovers or a laughing stock.

I don't see how you guys can cause any kind of revolution through a medium so disillusioning as professional wrestling. There are no redeeming qualities, no hope, nothing good about it. You're just sacrificing yourselves for people to watch, and it won't make any difference to them if you fail.

Tyler, you're not coming up short. You've already inspired countless numbers of people. Winning or losing in the ring is only a fraction of what this is truly about. Your passion alone has motivated me to enact change in my community. We're all able to spread the message in our own way. For you, it's wrestling. For us, it might be some other way. But rest assured, you're making an impact. It really doesn't matter if it's one person, or one million people. Lives are being changed. Have no regrets and look to the future.
