I've seen you go from zero to sixty in seconds and then you stop on a dime
I've seen you shuddering, dreams in the gutter, and how did you wind up here time after time?
Your passive resistance has proved no assistance and you've fallen slipshod, the way of the chumps
So don't fake suprise when you open your eyes to no merciful arms and you're cold in your slump

And I don't wanna see you sitting by
while your hopes and dreams and pieces of you die

'Cause there's a way in the world today that keeps us paralyzed with fear
don't ask how, don't look now, just leap and the net will appear
There's a way in the world today that keeps us paralyzed with fear
don't ask how, don't look now, just leap and the net will appear

I've seen you spew shells of promises from your mouth, never backed up and you're never around
Hiding won't help you now, you're not an ostrich so lift your thick head from that hole in the ground
You gotta get up off your doomed-to-fail butt, in this long fucking drill it's the first step you'll take
The conscience collective is bluntly selective, be strong 'cause they see every move that you make

And I don't wanna see you sitting by
while your hopes and dreams and pieces of you die

'Cause there's a way in the world today that keeps us paralyzed with fear
don't ask how, don't look now, just leap and the net will appear
There's a way in the world today that keeps us paralyzed with fear
don't ask how, don't look now, just leap and the net will appear

Don't put too much stock in what anyone might say
Take a hard second look at how you represent yourself each day
Reassess the situations fed to you as certain truth
Pay no attention to the sentimental assholes singing "I believe in yesterday"

'Cause I don't give a fuck and neither should you
'Cause yesterday's the past and right now's the only truth
Do it for yourself, man you gotta make a move
And you're only gonna do this when you come to see that
Forever's coming quickly...138
