Some people in this world take things for granted You don't know what you've got till its gone Time after time they get chance after chance And still their ignorance lives on They expect all for nothing Like the world owes them something Their responsibilities they push to one side But times they are changing You best start behaving From karma you cannot hide For too long you've gone in your fantasy world Its time to see the truth Open your eyes and look around In the mirror you won't find youth It'll hit you like shock like a brick in the chest Your world will come crumbling down You've done so much damage to the people you've met You'll stand alone there's no one around Coz in your selfish dazes and me me me spats You've pushed everyone away Everyone who cared and put up with your shit Has now seen the light of day Too many years they've stuck by your side Helping and guiding you through But you've not listened to a word they've said Ans finally they see the real you Whether you'll change is a mystery Only time will tell But unlike before you'll get no help From a distance I wish you well
