You must be so weary of living.
A life in self-service does not make you whole.
When the price of appearing important
Is your soul.
And that life’s gonna drive you crazy and
That life’s gonna get you sold
Down a river whose rapids are stagnant
Pools of mould.
Think twice before you act unkindly.
Reflect that if you turn into fun
The feelings of another person
Have you won?
And that night’s gonna last forever and
That night’s gonna feel so cold.
‘Cause it’s dark inside when you’re lonely,
Better check your dreams for the future
Will outlive the misdeeds of your past.
For the now is but a fleeting moment
And that dream’s gonna take you over and
That dream’s gonna define you.
Will you shine like a star forever
When it’s through?
So take this jagged piece of mirror.
Hold it up to the tip of your nose.
Do you like what you see or must you flee
What it shows?
And that face is gonna know you a long time and
That face is gonna show what you’ve done.
Start now to rebuild for tomorrow
