Hey- It's my time
To change my direction in life just by reading the signs
Hey- It's my turn
To see how many of my bridges will burn
I feel something breathing down my neck
Thought of tomorrow's got me like a nervous wreck
Not time for sorrow- It's your judgment day
It's not far away- It's not far away
There's a shiny coffin for you to rot in
And waste your days
It's not far away
Hey- I got something to say
Before the spirit of life starts slippin' away
I'm not gonna end my life
Wishing for one more chance again to get it right
I hear voices echo from the grave
Whispering softly- It's your judgment day
Hey- I won't rest in peace
Until this world is sick of hearing from me
Hey- Get outta my way
I got a lot more living to do before my
Judgment day

    General CommentTelling you to start making decisions on what you want to do with your life, as a "shiny coffin" is not too far away

    General CommentYeah, pretty much it's about somebody to stop messing around and start making changes for the better, because life will be over any time it wants to be

    General CommentI can totally feel Jason's pain here, this is a glimpse in how tormented he was, so ful of talent and hope and wisdom yet, he couldn't shake this feeling there's something wrong in the world, not something obvious, a bit like Neo, heh.

    My InterpretationSimilarly to others I think this song is about reaching that period in your life where you need to decide whether to live your life, or the life others choose for you.

    The burn bridges and breathing down my neck suggest adults (or could be society) ... will you burn bridges by revolting against what they want you to be / do??

    The shiny coffin line to me suggests that if you don't chose your own life, then might as well spend your life in a coffin as you aren't really "alive".
