Carpe diem seize the day
Before your life is away
Reach for the skies for the distant sun
But keep your lion from the gun
No you need to sell your soul
It's always great to lose control
Can't you feel that growing desire
Go down with a blazing
Fire we need to burn
And reach the point of no return

Waste no time living in vain
You and I aren't built to last
Go astray the only way
You and I will make it fast
Burn a candle at both ends
Let's take a ride before we fall
Leave no room for happy endings
We'll make it right for once and for all

Something's twisted in your head
For you live as you were dead
So therefore you must play with a gun
But be sure that you have no fun
Take my hand i'll lead you astray
For it's the only way
Let's give into the growing desire
Go down with a blazing
Fire we need to burn
And reach the point of no return

Waste no time living in vain
You and I aren't built to last
Go astray the only way
You and I will make it fast
Burn a candle at both ends
Let's take a ride before we fall
Leave no room for happy endings
We'll make it right for once and for all

Waste no time dreaming in vain
You and I aren't built to last
Go astray the only way
You and I will make it fast
Burn a candle at both ends
Let's take a ride before we fall
Leave no room for happy endings
We'll make it right for once and for all

Waste no time dreaming in vain
You and I aren't built to last
Go astray the only way
You and I will make it fast
Burn a candle at both ends
Let's take a ride before we fall
Leave no room for happy endings
We'll make it right for once and for all

    General CommentI think it's pretty clear. We don't live forever, so live life to the fullest.

    General CommentWith lyrics such as "Leave no room for a happy ending" and "Burn the candle at both ends" I would go even further than Beetlejuice and say this song is about living on the edge.
