And in the morning, when I rise,
One question, it feels like the sun in my eyes,
Am I making the most of this life?
So much trouble and so much strife,
And in my guilty hour,
Through all of my shame,
When all my love is run sour,
I have no one else to blame,
Cause it finds me through the mask I wear,
And I see it through it my eyes closed,
But still I can not bare to stare into my worries and my woes,
Theres comfort in self loathing and its easy to slip into it
But still I must learn to lead my life with no regrets,
All the time it all moves in the same direction,
So don't let it pass you by,
Because It moves so fast , theres no time for perfection,
So make the most of this life
Make the most of this life, uh
Make the most of this life
Make the most of this life

And when I fall I fall hard
And I dwell to often in my falls
I must accept it and move on
Theres just no shame in having to crawl

Because it finds me through the mask I wear,
And I see it through it my eyes closed,
But still I can not bare to stare into my worries and my woes,
Theres comfort in self loathing and its easy to slip into it
But still I must learn to lead my life with no regrets,
All the time, it all moves in the same direction,
So don't let it pass you by,
Because It moves so fast , theres no time for perfection,
So make the most of this life oh,
Make the most of this life ,oh
Make the most of this life
Just Make the most of this life

And if you come to me smiling,
Oh I, will see you shining out from within,
Such a beautiful grin aw
Falling down on me and frageling my skin
Wake I am pour I a cup of,
Wake I am pour I a cup
Wake I am pour I a cup of life

    General Commentthe lyrics are kind of wrong. it's not "there's confidence self loathing." It's "there's comfort in self loathing" for example..

    General Commentso basically this song explains itself. Live your life to its fullest potential and don't pause and think too long on your mistakes and regrets becasue life is too short for that. Brett Dennen is awesome

    General CommentCurrently my favourite song. I think zach pretty much captured the meaning. Forget about all your problems and everything you regret because it's holding you back. Even if your at your lowest point-don't feel pity for yourself-accept it and make it through! Live life to the max

    My InterpretationI always liked the line "there is comfort in self loathing" but I never knew what it meant. How is there comfort in self loathing?

    Here's how:

    If you lose confidence in yourself it becomes much easier to not take chances. By not taking chances you can never have the feeling of disappointment that is inevitable when you fail at something. This may be a relationship, trying out for something, or anything really. That is how there is comfort in self loathing.

    So don't let it pass you by,
    Because It moves so fast, there's no time for perfection,
    So make the most of this life
