Every day, again, again

I eat, I sleep, I dream of When,

I’ll climb that mountain,

I’ll beat those odds


I’ll come out counting,

The new money

The new life

That TV I wanted

That big breasted wife


And all the while

I’m insecure

Questioning life more and more


No tap out

No easy road

No 3 minute abs


My time seemingly running away like water

The more you squeeze to achieve

You end up losing your gained beliefs.


Try not to live for others desire

Rather dream your dream

And set your heart on fire.
