The cynics would probably say "He'd want to jump into the body of God since he thinks he is will all the poses he does." But, I guess by him saying he'd want to be himself makes everyone feel all warm and fuzzy inside with a "everyone sould be happy with who they are and give themself a big hug" type of feeling.
Today I'm gonna try a little harder
Gonna make every minute last longer
Gonna learn to forgive and forget
'Cause we don't have long
Gonna make the most of it
Today I'm gonna love my enemies
Reach out to somebody who needs me
Make a change, make the world a better place
'Cause tomorrow could be one day too late
--lyrics from "One Day Too Late" by Skillet
from their new album "Awake"
