Remember yourself, when death finds you
Why stare out the window
When you can see the chaos grow within
There is so much to be, but so little of me
Filled with struggle, mazed by people
Billed by the past and afraid for the future.
Forget their fabricated alarms
They don't mean much to my fragile mind
They can't see what I see,
Their fears cast a shadow
Insecurities too opaque
Built by inherited pride
And caged by love faked
They have satisfied dreamless nights
Life worn out by their mourns
of the days they never got once more
Surrender to them and you will never be alone
But walk by yourself and you'll never have to slow down
For their short legs and minds limited to brick walls
Live life swiftly, never wait for the wind
Build a motor boat and sail across the pond
Remember the things they forgot
About life and how it will change, unnoticed everyday
And you'll grow out of it and want to go back to the simpler ways
But you'll be greeted by fate,
And death will hug you for the last time.
So stare again, with hope, for more passion
And passion filled with hope.
Because alive you're worth much more
Than a few hours, left unremembered; sold.
To the highest bidder, taking over your thoughts
Changing your story and hanging their own in a frame.
Start once again before you are caught, doing the same.
