The bells again... someone has died
The bells of the end told to remind
that life´s but a race against time

At your back youl´ll always hear
The Chariot o Time hurrying near
The faster you run the closer it comes
A pursuer you can not outrun

Hear these words I say:
-Make the most out of your day
For brief is the light on our way
On this momentary trail

Hear these words, awake:
-Make the most out of your day
For brief is the time, so brief is the time
that we´re allowed to stay

The bells again... whose turn this time?
To reach the end, yours or mine?
Each funeral just makes us realize
that life´s but a series of goodbyes

Hear these words I say:
-Make the most out of your day
For brief is the light on our way
On this momentary trail

[too late]

Hear these words I say:
-Make the most out of your day
For brief is the light on our way
On this momentary trail

Hear these words, awake:
-Make the most out of your day
For brief is the time, so brief is the time
that we´re allowed to stay

Life passes by, melts away, like snow in the spring
We all are blind to the running of time

    General CommentI can't believe no one commented on this song. It's absolutely kickass.
    I think it's saying that life is short, and you should spend your time wisely doing what you want to do. You know, "hear these words I say, make the most out of your day" kinda says it all really. But yeah, that's what the song says to me. Great message anda great song.

    General CommentDon't piss away your life because no one can escape death.
    I love the line "Life is but a series of Good Byes"
