Life is too short
to ration out in portions
I spend my time
as soon as I get, it's gone
But I'm in no rush
Oh, I can feel a change;
I'm becoming alive again
I'm in command of my own fate
I can depend on destiny,
if it's safe
Become alive with me
Oh dead life, awake
Rise from your grave
Work your dead job,
rent your home sweet homeless
It almost killed me
and I didn't even notice it
Rise from your death
Try to notice it
Live on the edge
or die in a bed

    General CommentCarpe diem and all that. The "spend my time as soon as I can" is a cool way to say that when opportunity knocks, don't hesitate.
