lyrics

You’re waking up and then you’re tired
Ready to dream through another day
You can’t wait till you are retired
So you spend all your time on your great escape

You’re never even really here
Your body is, but your mind is miles away
Your body’s just another tool
To carry your daydreams from place to place

Until you’re wasted away
Until the day you’re erased
You’re alive today
Oh god what a waste

Until you’re wasted away
Until the day you’re erased
You’re alive today
What a waste

Poof you wake up and it’s all gone
Because you lived it all wrong
You wanted time to move on
And it did
Poof and then it’s all gone
Because you lived it all wrong
You wanted time to move on
And it did [x2]

Maybe you’ll wake up one day
When your skin is all wrinkly and hair is grey
But wouldn’t that just be a shame,
A whole life gone by, you were never free?

No need to wait till the end
When the sky rips apart and the real comes in
You’ll just be at the start again
Till you turn time from enemy to a friend
Till you turn time from enemy to a friend
