Had a request sort of for further explanation of my drinking song.

I remember standing in a line
White floors and walls like glass
a table where a man was sitting
Asking questions to all that pass

Seems we are given choices there
the kind of life we want to live
Or the lesson we wish to learn
To bring back to GOD to give

We all came from the other side
When we die we go back again
On Satans earth you learn lessons
You take home and give to him

If you wonder why are you here
It should be easy to figure out
What in life you are terrible at
the lessons you chose no doubt

We all came from the other side
When we die we go back again
On Satans earth you learn lessons
You take home and give to him

So much more I could explain
don’t worry about your fears
things will pass you will too
But God is counting your tears

We all came from the other side
When we die we go back again
On Satans earth you learn lessons
You take home and give to him

fantastically vivid, and that wraps up all the mystery. Provides a north star in the dead of winter, light at the end of the tunnel when you're ready to give up. Reaffirming the spirit of our culture and a hand to the downtrodden. Cheers

I like the sentiment here, but the opening lines throw me a bit... What's that about? :)

It may take a minute to explain but I will attempt it.
Before you are born onto earth you are already on the other side. (Heaven)
You and your soul mate, who is still there, decide on your life here. What lesson you decide to learn, what family you should be born into to best learn it, etc., and set up markers or road maps to guide you along the way. It is called a Deja Vue. For example, you are sitting at a red light and have a thought, a green truck is going to pass by and it does. That's a marker to let you know you are on the right path. On the other side you are middle-aged, everyone is. Now I will use me as an example. I was on the other side getting ready to come to earth as a newborn.
I was standing with others along a long white wall. Slick smooth, like glass, walls, floors, no ceilings, just clear blue sky. Up ahead is a corner, as you go around it there is a man sitting at a table for you to decide the small stuff. Tall, short, handsome, ugly, hung like a horse, hung like a field mouse, etc. You can't have all positives. Ying Yang. When you die you go back to the other side to be with your soul mate. Then if they wish they can come here to learn. Earth is the devil's playground. A lot more to say but I'm sure you have heard enough.

Very interesting thought... Beggs the question, what if you're already in the middle of a "do-over" and just don't know it lol? :)

I'm sure they will explain it to you when you get back. LOL
