Can I have an extra life
One more to go against eternity
Let it experience what this life won't
Let it test my present abilities
Get back these 25 years of sleeping
Take away those nights of mindless thinking
Discover the cure for aids
Free all those African slaves
Feed the children
Silence those red and blue sirens
Find all those cracks between land
Figure the purpose of man

This was inspired by my knowledge that life is short and my constant need to experience everything that can ever possibly be experienced throughout life.

Its good. I wouldnt mind being able to solve any of those problems, just because there is to much pain in the world with them.
