I don't want this life to pass me by
Looking out the windows of my soul's dreary eye
Those so fixated obediently comply
That's not for me!
I don't want to grudgingly go along, so I defy
Looking underneath it, asking questions, why
 
I don't want precious time that remains
Looking in the tide pool, before it slowly drains
Spinning like a cock on a weather vane
That's not for me!
I don't want to hop aboard the gravy train
Looking past it, what is there to gain
 
I don't want to waste a moment so beset
Looking for that something that hasn't happened yet
I won't become a fish tangled up in life's net
That's not for me!
I don't want to forfeit it all hanging high in debt
Looking over it,  and having deep regret
