Losers stand by and let things happen. L.A.S.E.R.S. act and shape their own destinies. Lasers find meaning and direction in the mysteries all around them. L.A.S.E.R.S. stand for love and compassion. Lasers stand for peace. L.A.S.E.R.S. stand for progression. L.A.S.E.R.S. are revolutionary.
L.A.S.E.R.S. Are The Future.
