Someone I know once said, “You can’t stop the second-hand from turning, it’s always ticking, never sticking still”
Someone I know told me, “Don’t let regret fill you up
You’ve gotta take the best and leave the rest behind"
Because it’s now or never all together, here

What do you think our dreams are telling us
I consider way too much
We should be laughing instead crying,
Living instead of dying

I don’t wanna wake up, and see my life’s been washed away, like a movie I once saw when I was young
Is this all we get when we add up twenty some-odd years of growing up, we go to college to make some dollars, yeah
To find the real world is just a figment in the end
What do you think our dreams are telling us
I consider way too much

The possibility, we may no longer be subject to adolescent responsibilities. When push comes to shove we all make mistakes, our ages go up and they raise the stakes.
I got a five day block of a nine to five 401K job, keeping me alive. Rising mortgage rates and credit bills,
I take three vitamins and two sleeping pills a night.

And I buy all this stuff to fill my apartment, but it’s never enough, because it could never amount to what’s called true love, you gotta find it now before it becomes unheard of. And I got two weeks off, two least cars, and no backyard, and one garage.
But none of that will matter to me anyway,
If I’m going to be sleeping diagonally
And I plan for retirement
Did I mention addiction to caffeine? I drink seven cups of coffee a day without cream.
