Bohemia's Six Word Story of Faith

So a friend of mine posted to the #SixWordStoryOfFaith thread happening on Twitter a variation on the first two line of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and it made me think of the great testimonies in the song.  I can think of at least one person in my life that could use almost all of these lines (except a couple as noted) to describe their faith. So here it is:

Is this real of just fantasy?
Caught in landslide no escaping reality
Open eyes, look to the skies
A poor boy, needing no sympathy
Because I'm Easy come, Easy go,
Little high, low, anyway wind blows
It doesn't Really matter to me

Killed a man, with a gun
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead
(okay admittedly those last 2 lines have little to no way I can make them connect alone)

Life just begun, now thrown away

Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back by tomorrow
Carry on as if nothing matters

My time has come, sending shivers
Body aches, good bye, good bye.
Got to leave you, face truth

I do not want to die
I've never been born at all
See a silhouette of the man
Buffoons, will you do your dance (Scaramouche will you do the Fandango)
Thunder and lightning are very frightening
Falsely accused just like Galileo, magnificent... (Context of Galileo Galileo)

Just a poor boy, nobody loves me
A poor boy from a poor family
Spare my life from this monstrosity

Easy Come Easy Go . . . Let Go
It will not let me go
Let me go, No don't go
A devil's set aside for me
You think you can stone me?
Think you can spit on me?
Love then leave me to die
You can't do this to me
Gotta get out of here now

Nothing really matters, anyone can see
Nothing matters anyway the wind blows
