You either live it up or don't live it down
Keep your head in the clouds, your ear to the ground
You're either lost in the narrows or being found
You either pay with your life or pay by the pound

There's no time, there's no time for someone to save you
There's no time, there's no time
All the world ain't waiting for you to finally come around

You either live it up or don't let it go
You're either in with the in or out of the no

There's no time, there's no time for someone to save you
There's no time, there's no time
All the world ain't waiting for
There's no time, there's no time for someone to make you
Make you finally come around

What a life, what a lie
We're living here on borrowed time
And life's what happens in between the planet and the ...
You either live it up
(When the cracks split in the road)
Or you don't live it up down
(Are all you've seen)
You either live it up
(When the cracks split in the road)
Or you don't live it down
(Are all you've seen)
So don't be giving up
(When the cracks split in the road)
Or let it bring you down
(Are all you've seen)
Or let it bring you down
(When the cracks split in the road
Are all you've seen)

    General CommentI wish this band got more recognition.. They're really great, awesome live show. Anyways, this song is so true and apparent by the lyrics. No ones going to come and make everything better for you, be your own hero.

    General CommentI really love how this song is about how there are several different ways for things to turn out, but YOU have to choose. No one is going to spend there time and there life saving you, no one is going to choose things for you.
