And now I sit in thought as the plot of my days commences,
and I'm left with fences
Put off the thoughts of my end so long to race
to chase after the trend so fleeting
Hours pass unsettled, unresolved my passions
I scrape to win a new day to waste
Misaligned priorities parallel my desires
I hide my eyes to avoid embrace
I smell the stench, unavoidable approach comes against
And yet I'm left asking the question
Denied a way to defend the thoughts
That this side equates with what awaits

I'm ripping right through the masses, sacrifice into ashes
Giving up what was past tense, raising up like Lazarus
I laugh at the strongman who thought he had control
A hold on my eternity-eternal is Christ empowers me
Like the faith that builds my strength
Is like your dreams that fade away
The battlefield we soldiers play
I dance with life beyond the grave
And Jah knows that I will never rest my head --No time for us to sleep
We concentrate on the son until our eyes bleed
Salvation carries a cost, we must prevail
Death creeps like the breeze, but have no fear, watch me inhale

Temporary bliss, the depths await my burial as the hours seem as seconds
The end of your bliss is coming --face the path and sip the last
Embrace ends-every day a new day to die
Die-time-the former life is past
Blindside-I know what awaits my fate
Haste-breath - unavoidable ceasing of days
Today is a good day to die

    General CommentThe last part of this song is missing from the entry.

    Anyway, the song seems clearly to be about the time limit we all have on our natural lives (hint: rhymes with 'beth'). The first two line appear to be about sitting and thinking about what you'll do with your days, and yet failing to rush headlong into a great cause. "I'm left with fences" indicates sitting on the proverbial fence of indecisiveness.
    It keeps talking about time passing and the inevitable point where you run out of time. "I smell the stench, unavoidable" seems to be about smelling the stench of death and the grave and knowing that each moment is getting you closer to it. "That this side equates with what awaits" seems to mean that what we do on this side of life, or on this side of the veil, in the physical, before we die and pass into the spiritual, translates into the next life. (Let us please put to death this myth that believing in an afterlife causes people to "focus only on that life" to the neglect of the here and now. On the contrary, believing that what we do here has consequences later gives even greater importance to our actions now.)

    The rest of the song seems to be about forgetting about the time that was already wasted (you can't do anything about it now so don't worry about it), prioritizing what you do because you don't have all the time in the world, and pushing yourself like hell to make great progress while you still can.
