What are you waiting for?
Your numbered days are counting faster than ever before.
You can hope and pray all you want, but there is no cure.
Well I’ve got a hunch; You’re not the man you claim to be.
And I’m afraid that you’ve lost your touch and all your hold on me.
It was only a matter of time. You never had it in you.
Oh It was only a matter of time before the truth caught up with your lies.
Is this the real you? Is this what makes a man? Because all I see is a shell you filled with addictions and habits, born of failed accomplishments. What do you have to say for yourself?
“Wake me up, I’m ready to breathe. I never should have wasted these chances. This was a way for me to claim my place. This was a way for me to hide my face from the world around me; they all seem so perfect.”
One day you’ll wake up to find
That there’s so much more to this
One day you’ll wake up to find that
This life still has purpose.
One day you’ll wake and realize just like I did.
Stop holding back; it will get you nowhere.
Stop standing still; it won’t get you anywhere.
Just cause you’re living doesn’t mean you’re alive. To fail is to live to never try is to die.
And they’ll tell tales of the man who spent his whole life digging a grave.
