My life is all that I've known
And it's all that keeps me here
My time is all that I own
So I won't let it slip away... My Life

How long can this life go on
Who we are what we are...
I'll see you on the other side

Wouldn't you rather live it on your own
Even when it bends you over
So when it comes time to go home
You don't let them fade away... Away

How long can this all go on?
How long till it's over?
And how long till it all comes down?
...And how bad do we need a new reminder?

    General CommentThe song discusses the mystery of life and death and what both of them truly are. The last two verses discuss how people should realize that we only have one life and to live it fully, even if it screws you. That way you won't just be a blip on the radar 'and fade away', be forgotten as just another person.

    The last verse again contrasts the time of living and time of death. The last line means we all need to be reminded of our death to truly live life to its fullest.

    A pretty hopefull but melancholic song.
