Sometimes I lie awake
And think about the day
I watch you all walk around with
Your eyes half open
I smoke one more cigarette and, start it all over
You're all so scared to face your own lives
You let it pass you by
Why don't you try and open up your eyes
And see the door is closing

You always wait

Five Minutes for it to come
Five minutes and its over over
You seem to think your life's just begun
Five minutes and its over over

There is a man in the kitchen with a shovel
A million dollars on the dining room table
Now every day he puts a little in the oven
You can spend as much or little as you're able
You're all so scared to face you're own lives
You let it pass you by
Why don't you try and open up your eyes
See what the man is burning
