I wanna live forever, I don’t wanna die,

It’s the monster in the closet, that never goes away.

You and I, we’re so alike, afraid of the same thing,

It can’t be stopped, it can only be delayed.

 

Father Time remains undefeated, a perfect season

19-0, capped off with the Lombardi trophy.

You and I, we’re so fragile, and our time so short,

We all have to face, our permanent deletion.

 

Tell me, do you feel uncomfortable yet? That’s

The feeling of your mind, processing your mortality.

A shiver up your spine, a ticking clock echoes in the distance,

Dark storm clouds, are beginning to cover your thoughts.

 

From the first breath, you start the decaying process,

As soon as you’re named, your death certificate is signed.

Better work fast, make sure that you live with no regrets,

Cause everyone, has to one day face, their final sunset.
