where is my bayou paradise?

do people have any control over their individual fate? does the human consciousness influence our reality? if so, to what extent? what things are beyond our control, and what can we control with thought? it seems a prerequisite that nothing works out perfectly for anybody. but can't we change these things? we fucking figured out how to take over the world, surely we have powers over our own destinies. or maybe i'm just being napoleonic about my human abilities. i do have a mix of ideas about the role we play in the cosmos, and for the most part i think it is very tiny. so what can we really do at the end of the day? i'd like to know. i think that things change. things can be willed into life. and if somebody says something is gone and done for good, well, maybe it isn't. cue 80's synth and vocals:

Let us die young or let us live forever
We dont have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The musics for the sad men

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders we're getting in tune
The musics played by the madmen

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever, ooh and ever...

p.s. the first thing i would will into existence is me not being obsessed with music that i know is godawful. jk, i'm luvin' it (tm).
