Your life is ending, one minute at a time,
check the clock and stand in line.
Hibernate, till your life's passed you by.
Please stop living like you're waiting to die.

Keep up, don't get left behind.
Don't slip up, chase that finish line.
They don't want you believing that your life deserves a meaning.

Weary soul's trying to forget,
that we're all puppets with a lifetime debt.

What a feeling, built to break.
Happiness with an expiry date.
Please stop living like you're waiting to die.

Stitched into our lives, drained until we expire.

Keep two eyes on that intangible finish line.
In this race we're all reduced to vermin.

    My OpinionI think this song is a "not giving up" song, Not letting people tell you that you are not worth it or that you cant achieve something. Life is too short to be pushed around.

    "Keep up, keep up,
    Don't get left behind
    Don't slip up, slip up
    Chase that finish line
    They don't want you believing
    That your life deserves a meaning."

    The rest of the lyrics just describe what people want you to think about yourself, but ultimately this song to me is just saying that no matter what they say you can achieve your "intangible finish line" or goals.
